Buccaneers | Doug Martin could see fewer touches

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 22:55:22 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin suffered a minor injury in the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers, giving way to RB Jacquizz Rodgers more in the fourth quarter. Rodgers may cut into Martin's touches this week, depending on the game flow and level of production early on, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners never want to hear about a potential scaling back of a role, but Martin could be in for fewer touches. The Saints are so-so against the rush, allowing 97.9 yards per game with 13 touchdowns in 12 games. Martin should be treated as more of a low-end RB2 this weekend.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin OK

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 05:16:42 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) came out of the game OK, Sunday, Dec. 5, according to head coach Dirk Koetter.

Fantasy Tip: Martin struggled with 17 rushes for 45 yards but salvaged his day with a touchdown in Week 13. The New Orleans Saints have been better against RBs of late, but Martin will be a strong RB2 next week.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin injured late in win

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 18:30:03 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (undisclosed) left the Week 13 game against the San Diego Chargers late in the second half. He said he was "bent back" late in the game, which is why RB Jacquizz Rodgers saw so much time down the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ended up with 17 runs for 45 yards and a touchdown while also hauling in a 23-yard catch on his only target. When healthy he is a solid RB2 in all fantasy leagues. We'll monitor his practice status all week and let you know if he'll be available for Week 14 against the New Orleans Saints.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin turning it up

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 05:46:36 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed 23 times for 87 yards against the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, Nov. 27. He caught two balls for three yards and lost a fumble as well.

Fantasy Tip: He has carried the ball 24 and 23 times in respective weeks, and yesterday's 3.8 yards per carry was a season high. He has a good matchup against the San Diego Chargers next week as an RB2.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin totals 105 yards

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 19:16:46 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) rushed 24 times for 63 yards in the Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and he added three receptions for 42 yards on four targets.

Fantasy Tip: The 27 touches was a good sign that Martin's hamstring issue is official behind him. He'll face a big test when the Seattle Seahawks come calling to Raymond James Stadium in Week 12. Treat him more as a flex fantasy option in that matchup.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin scores in return

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 14:21:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 16 times for 33 yards and scored a 1-yard touchdown in his return to the gridiron Sunday, Nov. 13. The Buccaneers beat the Chicago Bears, 36-10.

Fantasy Tip: Martin wasn't expected to do much his first game back from hamstring issues, so the touchdown was a bonus. Martin will improve as time goes on, barring injury, so monitor how the team uses him,

Buccaneers | Doug Martin active for Week 10

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 08:58:21 -0800

Confirming previous reports, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is active for the first time since Week 2 and has a somewhat unfavorable matchup this week against a Chicago defense that has been strong against the run this year. He is also expected to have a limited workload, so daily fantasy gamers should look for safer options.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to have limited workload

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 07:22:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) is expected to be active for Week 10's game against the Chicago Bears, although his workload is likely to be limited, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has been sidelined since Week 2 and will be facing a tough Chicago run defense in his first game back, making him a risky play in all formats. RBs Peyton Barber and Mike James are also expected to see carries but neither player should be considered a viable fantasy option.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin will dress

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 12:23:47 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) will be active for the game Sunday, Nov. 13, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Considering he was limited in practice this week, it's unlikely that he'll have a full load. The Bears have been good against opposing running backs, and Martin is a very risky flex option in Week 10.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin unlikely to play Week 10

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 12:41:01 -0800

Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) was still doing rehab work during the portions of practice open to the media this week and doesn't appear prepared to play, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Fantasy Tip: It seems very likely Tampa Bay will sit Martin out this week and hope he can get in a full practice or two next week. Peyton Barber and Mike James should see the bulk of backfield work this weekend against the Chicago Bears.
