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. The Tampa Bay front office has no allegiance to the former first round pick Martin and drafted Charles Sims on Day 2 in 2014. Buzz abounds that Sims, not the incumbent Doug Martin, has the inside track for the starting job for the Buccaneers. Martin was once a high-volume pass catcher, but 2014 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. (May 11)
