Buccaneers | Doug Martin misses practice

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 16:41:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is expected to miss three weeks because of the injury, so Charles Sims will receive most of the work at running back. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin out three weeks

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 05:15:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) is expected to miss three weeks due to his hamstring injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Charles Sims becomes a solid RB2 in PPR leagues. He has struggled with 13 rushes for 33 yards, but he has caught six balls for 36 yards and a touchdown. Jacquizz Rodgers could be a flex option against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend as well.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to have MRI

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 08:27:03 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will have an MRI on his hamstring to determine the severity of the injury Tuesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: This was the knock on Martin before last year's breakout. Check back for results, but expect Charles Sims to be more involved in Week 3 regardless. Sims is a decent PPR flex play.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin tweaks hamstring

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 18:50:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) said Sunday, Sept. 18, after the Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals that he suffered a "slight tweak" to his hamstring. He was unsure when he'd be able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Martin could have been pulled from the game due to the lopsided score. It doesn't sound terribly serious, but if he is forced to miss time Charles Sims would be the back to target for fantasy purposes in Tampa.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin doubtful to return

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 14:21:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 2 and is doubtful to return against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Martin draws the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3, which would be a solid matchup. Keep an eye on his practice status, as the doubtful designation could be merely a precaution.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin totals 96 yards

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 20:49:16 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Doug Martin ran 18 times for 62 yards in the Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons, and he added five receptions for 34 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Martin didn't find the end zone, but the total yardage was decent. He should be treated as an RB2 in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals, a stingy rush defense.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin sitting Saturday

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 11:08:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ribs) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Jacksonville Jaguars due to bruised ribs. The decision is strictly precautionary and Martin is expected to play against the Cleveland Browns next week.

Fantasy Tip: Not a huge deal. The Buccaneers want their running back fresh and healthy when the regular season begins. Martin was second in the NFL in rushing yards last year (1,402), and while his PPR value is hindered by Charles Sims, he's still a borderline RB1 option.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin has tough draw for opener

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 16:14:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin averaged just 3.5 yards per carry against the Atlanta Falcons last season, and he'll face them in Week 1. He had 48 carries for 166 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Martin figures to have a featured role again after cashing in during the offseason, but he'll have company in the backfield. Charles Sims is expected to have a larger role this year. Martin slots in as a low-end RB1, but he'll have significant risk after last year's breakout leading to a big contract. Can he remain motivated to do it again? That's the question you'll have to answer on draft day.

Buccaneers | J.R. Sweezy ready to pave the way

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 18:56:59 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers OG J.R. Sweezy said he loves run blocking and is ready to help open lanes for RB Doug Martin.

Fantasy Tip: Health is the only question mark for Martin, but as the lead back for an up-and-coming offense, he is worth drafting as a high-end RB1.
