Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (shoulder) said he has been medically cleared to participate in football activities.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith expects RB Doug Martin to be the team's leading rusher again this season. "I think you have to have a bell cow," Smith said. "(Martin) is ours. At the running back position, there's enough reps to go around. We want three guys we feel comfortable with. Two will play, but it's not a rotation that where every series we're going to have a different guy in there. We'll have a starter, then we'll have a backup that will give him quality backup minutes."
Fantasy Tip: Mike James and Bobby Rainey filled in nicely for Martin when he was out last year, but they aren't your prototypical lead backs. Martin is, and this news should have been expected if he was fully healthy. He'll likely come at a cheaper price this year as your RB1.
