Buccaneers | Doug Martin not returning?

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 11:21:24 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has "no chance" of being on Tampa Bay's roster next season, in the opinion of the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, playing in just 16 games over the last two seasons. His production lacked when he was playing, so there is merit to releasing Martin. At 29 years old, he may be over the football hill. Peyton Barber, Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers are more than capable of manning the Bucs' backfield.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin 'wasn't ever the same' in 2017

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 09:16:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin failed to rush for even 500 yards for the fourth time in five years. General manager Jason Licht attributed Martin's most recent disappointing season to his season-opening suspension and the idea he wasn't able to reach the form he showed in the preseason after returning from his three-game absence. "I think the lack of, or having a hard time getting the run game going was…you know, Doug just didn't have…he just wasn't ever the same. And it wasn't until late that Peyton (Barber) kind of arrived and things started going a little bit better with him, starting with the Green Bay game and on and on," Licht said.

Fantasy Tip: It's a weak excuse, especially considering Martin looked sharp in his season debut against the New England Patriots in Week 5. Martin obviously wasn't able to find the same form, but his offensive line didn't do him any favors either - even before injuries really started to strike the front five. Either way, Martin is likely done in Tampa Bay, which figures to add a running back in the first two to three rounds of the upcoming NFL Draft.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin bottled up in Charlotte

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 13:43:34 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed six times for seven yards in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers and he did not have any receptions or targets.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was awful, outplayed by Peyton Barber badly. While Carolina's defense is rather stout, Barber was still able to average 3.9 yards per run to Martin's 1.2 yards per tote. His future in Tampa looks rather murky at the moment, as does his fantasy outlook.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin set to rejoin team?

Tue, 19 Dec 2017 09:52:27 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin's one-game suspension is "behind us now," according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Koetter has yet to specify what infraction Martin actually committed, but it would be far from surprising if Martin did not play another snap for the Buccaneers. The 28-year-old back voided all of his remaining guaranteed money with his suspension last season and Peyton Barber has filled in adequately when given the chance this season. Martin will almost certainly be playing somewhere else in 2018.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin violated team rules

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 16:31:46 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been declared inactive for the team's Week 15 game because he violated team rules.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was the starting running back earlier in the season but could lose the job if Peyton Barber plays well in Week 15. Owners in all leagues should probably avoid Martin for the final two games of the season if he plays.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin mostly ineffective

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 18:52:06 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 10 times for 26 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was outgained 58-26 on the ground by Peyton Barber, who was tremendously effective on the ground when Martin was sidelined by injury the week before. It appears there is going to be a Tampa timeshare in the backfield and Martin might be on the short end.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin starting in Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 07:41:22 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was a full practice participant throughout the week and was not listed on the injury report. He should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues this afternoon, especially given how well RB Peyton Barber played in his absence.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin off injury report

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 15:16:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) was able to practice fully on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is expected to start in Week 14, and that's bad news for the fantasy outlook of Peyton Barber. Martin should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Lions.
