|Buccaneers | Doug Martin has backer in Lovie|
Thu, 09 Apr 2015 17:18:01 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a supporter in head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said the team hasn't "seen the true Doug Martin yet." Smith also said RB Bobby Rainey is the current starting punt returner.
Fantasy Tip: Rainey hasn't done much since his outstanding rookie year in 2012 (1,454 yards, 11 touchdowns), mainly because of injuries. He'll have to contend with Rainey and Charles Sims in the backfield in 2015, too, which means it'll be tough to rely on him yet again.

|Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey limited Thursday|
Thu, 11 Dec 2014 15:52:19 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Rainey and Charles Sims have been nonfactors in recent weeks with Doug Martin returning as starter. Martin ($4,400) deserves a look on FantasyScore this week with a nice matchup against the Carolina Panthers, who have given up the third most receptions to running backs this year.

|Buccaneers | Doug Martin says he's the same runner|
Tue, 25 Nov 2014 13:27:26 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin says he's the same running back he was as a rookie in 2012 when he took the league by storm. However, he's averaging just 2.8 yards per carry and has only 193 rushing yards and one score this season, but he's missed two games with a knee injury and three with an ankle ailment. He's healthy now, but he only mustered 27 yards on 11 carries in Week 12 while sharing time with RBs Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey.
Fantasy Tip: It's very hard to trust Martin ($3,300) at FantasyScore with Sims and Rainey also competing for touches in this backfield. If there was ever a week to roll the dice on Martin in a flex spot, though, Week 13 against the Cincinnati Bengals might be it. The Bengals have allowed an average of 21.73 fantasy points to runners in 2014.

|Buccaneers | Doug Martin quiet in return|
Sun, 23 Nov 2014 19:17:18 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) returned to the lineup in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears. He carried 11 times for 27 yards. He was sidelined for the past three games due to an ankle injury.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should avoid Martin until he starts to show a little more consistency. Rust was inevitable after a long layoff, especially on the road against a decent defense.

|Buccaneers | Doug Martin takes most reps|
Sat, 22 Nov 2014 14:02:34 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,000; 6.0% of your cap) should work his way back into the mix this week. We don't expect this situation to be more than a split between Martin and Charles Sims ($4,700; 9.4%). Martin is worth the bargain buy, but Sims could see more action this week.

| Buccaneers | Doug Martin questionable|
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:38:18 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Martin will cost $3,000 in FantasyScore this week, and is a risky play because he has not done much this year. Charles Sims will likely get most of the work if Martin can't go, and will cost $4,700 this week.

|Buccaneers | Doug Martin, Charles Sims limited|
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:48:42 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,000) may return in Week 12 to face the Chicago Bears, but he hasn't done much all season. Sims ($4,700), on the other hand, has effectively replaced Bobby Rainey as the lead back. The Bears are allowing just over 16 fantasy points per game to rushers this year. Consider Sims more of a flex play this week at FantasyScore, and his value will suffer if Martin returns.

Fantasy Tip: Charles Sims may be the team's lead running back for now but Doug Martin should also receive some carries if he is able to play. Martin only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option.

|Buccaneers | Doug Martin ruled out for Week 11|
Fri, 14 Nov 2014 10:45:36 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,600) continues to be a huge fantasy disappointment this season. Bobby Rainey ($4,400) will likely continue to see the majority of the workload, but Charles Sims ($4,500) could also see a significant enough role against the Redskins to be a sleeper flex play at FantasyScore.
