Week 16: vs Green Bay Packers

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Doug Martin got back onto the fantasy radar last week with (at long last) a strong performance (14/96/0 rushing with 1/3/0 receiving at Carolina). It was his first time all season anywhere near 100 yards combined, but there is some room for hope among his weary fantasy owners. This week, the Buccaneers welcome the Packers to Raymond James Stadium - Green Bay averages 128.0 rushing yards allowed per game (26th in the NFL) with 11 rushing scores given up to date. Last week, Buffalo posted 33/113/0 against Green Bay; two weeks ago, Atlanta had 24/91/1 rushing in Lambeau Field. Advantage, Tampa Bay.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs CIN (1 / 11 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)

Rainey only received one meaningless carry with three seconds left on the clock in the first half, but he was involved in the passing game. Rainey had a crucial grab with a minute left in the game to keep the Bucs driving down the field. At the snap, Rainey acted as if he was blocking, but peeled off. A few lineman also peeled off their blocks to lead the way down the field. The screen side receivers blocked really well, also. Rainey shook a few diving linebackers and rumbled 29 yards for the first. Overall, Rainey was the least productive of the three backs. Martin received the majority of the rushing work and Sims received the passing work. It's safe to say at this point it's a timeshare and Rainey is number three in line for touches.

Our View: Rainey was out last week, and there's no guarantee he'll be ready this week. Fantasy owners should have moved on a long time ago.
