Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 31, and is doubtful for the team's Week 9 game.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson stay

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 13:10:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin and WR Vincent Jackson were not traded as the NFL trade deadline passed Tuesday, Oct. 28, despite several rumors leading up to the deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's value will take a hit when Charles Sims returns from Reserve/Injured. Jackson is still the team's best receiver but is losing targets to rookie Mike Evans. Either one might be worth trading for the right price in your fantasy league.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin expects big game soon

Sat, 11 Oct 2014 08:22:25 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin said he believes the team's running attack is close to having a breakout game. "Yeah, there's been times where it's definitely been close," Martin said. "These guys work hard. They work their butts off in practice. Everyone [holds] each other accountable for this. We're going to get it going and I can't wait until it happens. [I'll] Just continue what I do just run the ball hard, follow my keys and just keep going hard like I do."

Fantasy Tip: Martin should receive most of the work at running back in Week 6. Martin costs $4,600 on FantasyScore and could be a solid flex option for owners.

Buccaneers | Bucs have faith in Doug Martin

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 13:30:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is averaging just 2.5 yards per carry this year, but quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo, who is acting as the interim play-caller, is happy with the play of Martin. "I like the things Doug has done," Arroyo said. "Our run game has to improve, obviously, overall. We believe that as a staff that starts with us. I think wholeheartedly we need to continue to find out what exactly it takes to get us back on track in the run game. There's going to be some finer points, detail and those things execution-wise." Arroyo doesn't mind giving RB Bobby Rainey carries, but he believes that Martin is still the team's leading running back.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is cheap this week at FantasyScore ($4,700; 9.4% of cap). He's worth consideration against the Baltimore Ravens if you're looking for an under-the-radar option.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin carries load

Sun, 28 Sep 2014 15:32:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) was active in Week 4 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he led the team with 14 carries, 40 yards and a touchdown. He also hauled in two passes for 16 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Martin looked fine, although it was tough sledding against a decent rush defense. It appears he is ready to resume his status as No. 1 tailback in Tampa, and he is once again a solid RB2 or flex play in most fantasy leagues.
