Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 19 vs KC (4 / 2 / 57 / 0 rec)
Martin's big play was a 42 yard deep throw that had Tom Brady eluding pressure. Rob Gronkowski was in the area and nearly batted it away from Martin on accident, but luckily, everything was good, as the Patriots completed a rare deep ball.
2015 Week 17 vs MIA (2 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Much less involved this week than the prior few weeks, Martin's lack of involvement was partially due to gameplan, and partially due to the passing game's complete ineffectiveness. If Julian Edelman returns for the playoffs and Amendola is healthy, Martin may not have a fulltime role.
2015 Week 16 vs NYJ (11 / 7 / 68 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
With Danny Amendola hurt, Martin operated as the #1 wide receiving option, catching more balls than any other Patriots receiver. He had some good and bad, as he was able to get open at times, but wasn't able to elude many defenders. He did have a superb catch on the outside of a defender, but he was limited to short catching.
2015 Week 15 vs TEN (4 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)
Martin's biggest play was a 75 yard kick return that set the offense up at the 30 yard line, which was then converted into a touchdown two plays later. Martin also had an oopsy drop, but that will happen.
2015 Week 14 vs HOU (4 / 3 / 23 / 1 rec)
Martin had two highlights on the day, with one being good and one not so good. His positive was his touchdown grab, in which he juked a defender on an inside out double move to score with ease. He had a couple good punt returns, but then muffed one, and was yanked from those duties after that. Martin should continue to see a bit role until Julian Edelman returns.
2015 Week 13 vs PHI (8 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)
Though he played meaningful snaps against the Eagles, Martin's biggest contributions were a deep P.I. call and a critical drop on the final drive of the game. It was not a good game for Martin, who struggled to catch the ball at times, and struggled to get separation against a beatable secondary at others.
2015 Week 12 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Though Martin played plenty of snaps, he was an afterthought in the passing attack, and may continue to be so once Danny Amendola returns.
2015 Week 6 vs IND (2 / 1 / 39 / 0 rec)
Martin's big play came on a deep ball by Tom Brady with a great over-the-shoulder adjustment from the receiver himself. Beyond that, Martin wasn't a huge part of the gameplan, and could be phased out even more pending the return of Brandon LaFell.
2015 Week 3 vs JAX (3 / 3 / 33 / 1 rec)
Surprisingly, roughly a week after being acquired from the Texans, Keshawn Martin was active and played a role in the Patriots win. His critical catch was his touchdown, which saw Tom Brady forced to scramble to his left due to pressure. Martin picked up on this, broke his route and rolled left with his quarterback, allowing Brady to toss the ball to Martin for a score. Credit to both QB and receiver on the play.
