Summary

Doug Martin is coming off a significant sophomore slump in 2013. After a huge rookie season with more than 1,900 total yards and 12 touchdowns, Martin struggled for six games in 2013 prior to missing the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. Martin's yards-per-carry dropped a full yard, his yards-per-reception was nearly cut in half and the Tampa Bay running game struggled mightily. After Martin's injury, reserves Mike James and Bobby Rainey outplayed the incumbent. The three best rushing performances of the season for Tampa Bay came after the Doug Martin injury. This offseason, the team drafted receiving back extraordinaire Charles Sims in the third round. With James and Rainey both showing their mettle as between-the-tackle options and Sims joining the fray, Doug Martin's time as the workhorse back is over. In addition to the added direct competition at running back, Tampa Bay added oversized passing targets Mike Evans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in the top-40 picks of the draft. Both will shift the offense to more pass attempts in the red zone that were previously going to Doug Martin. (May 14)
