Summary

Doug Martin returns to Tampa Bay with a new contract, one with the fourth-most guaranteed money at running back in the NFL. Martin is coming off a career year, logging a high-water mark of 4.9 yards-per-carry and staying healthy for all 16 games. Martin mired through injuries in 2013 and 2014 after his historically-strong rookie season in 2012. Martin has lost passing game appeal since the arrival of Charles Sims, a dominant pass-catcher dating back to his collegiate career. Martin was aided by a strong run-blocking offensive line in Tampa Bay in 2015, a top-10 unit by efficiency metrics at FootballOutsiders.com. Martin is a hard-charging back relying on top effort more than an innate physical talent. Entering his 27-year-old season, Martin will look to hang on to his prime production window like similar career arc backs Garrison Hearst and Thomas Jones before their late-20s steep decline.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin has tough draw for opener (Sat Jul 16, 07:14 PM) - 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.

Our View: In two games against the Falcons last year, he had 48 carries for 166 yards and a touchdown. In each contest, Martin got the workload (23 and 25 carries respectively) but wasn't able to shake free for many gains over four yards...and he had five carries of negative yards during that time. However, Martin's line of 71 yards rushing (Week 8) and 95 yards rushing (Week 13) were both good enough for top-12 finishes for fantasy owners. The point is simple; don't bench Doug Martin--even in a tough draw.
