Summary

Doug Martin is long removed from his historic 2012 rookie season. The past two seasons have seen Martin devolve into one of the NFL's least effective running backs seeing noteworthy touches, including a bottom-of-the-barrel pass blocking rating in 2014. Tampa Bay head coach Lovie Smith named Martin the starting running back in early August. Martin was once a high-volume pass catcher, but in saw his targets plummet last season with Bobby Rainey taking receptions away early in year and Charles Sims averaging more than three receptions per contest in second half games. Without much receiving upside, Martin is dependent on high volume and goal line work for fantasy viability. (August 7)

Latest News

Buccaneers | Doug Martin shows well in brief stint (Mon Aug 24, 11:30 PM) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed six times for 59 yards in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also rushed once for nine yards.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to be dialed in here. Martin may never be what he was as a rookie a few years ago, but he looked faster, quicker and more decisive on Monday night. He's looking like a fine value pick where he's coming off the board right now. His current ADP is RB24 (5.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.
