Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football. The team held him out of the Week 2 game to ensure that he would be ready for Week 3 at Atlanta. RB Bobby Rainey, who had 22 carries for 144 yards in Week 2, could be heavily involved as well.
Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned this week for further details on how much of a timeshare we can expect moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Bobby Rainey will start in Martin's place and is a solid starting option in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Bobby Rainey is a good option for owners on FantasyScore since he would only cost $3,700 and should see most of the playing time at running back.

Fantasy Tip: Bobby Rainey likely would see most of the time at running back if Martin is not able to play. Rainey would be a solid option on FantasyScore, because he would only cost $3,700. Rainey would also be useful in point-per-reception leagues.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play Sunday, Sept. 14, in the opinion of beat writer Tom Krasniqi. RB Bobby Rainey is expected to see more action in Week 2, regardless of Martin's status.
Fantasy Tip: Martin might be too risky to play ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap on FantasyScore) at this point. Rainey is a solid bargain buy ($3,700; 7.4%) as a flex option for Week 2.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is still the team's lead back, head coach Lovie Smith said Friday, Sept. 12. Smith also refuted reports that Martin was benched in Week 1 because he missed an assignment in pass protection.
Fantasy Tip: Martin is expected to play in Week 2 despite a knee injury, and it looks like he will at least have another shot to prove he can be the workhorse in the backfield. As long as he suits up, Martin should earn enough touches to put together a solid stat line, and he is a very affordable option at the running back position on FantasyScore with a salary of $4,700 (9.4% of cap).

Fantasy Tip: Martin is a solid play with a $4,700 (9.4% of the cap) price tag on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: With Seferian-Jenkins out this week, Brandon Myers is an attractive option in FantasyScore with a price of $4,000 (8.0% of cap).
