Titans | Tennessee interested in Doug Martin?

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 12:24:37 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent running back Doug Martin may draw interest from the Tennessee Titans this offseason, in the opinion of Terry McCormick of New Titans general manager Jon Robinson is coming off a fresh stint as director of player personnel with the Buccaneers, so he and Martin are acquainted.

Fantasy Tip: It's highly unlikely that the Bucs will let Martin go after the season he had in 2015. If they can't work out a long-term deal right away, Tampa Bay can use their franchise tag on Martin and negotiate a long-term deal later. Martin remains a RB1 for next season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin said he wants to sign a new deal to stay with the team but would also play if he is given the franchise tag.

Buccaneers | TB talking extension with Doug Martin

Wed, 27 Jan 2016 19:05:21 -0800

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and RB Doug Martin's representatives have started discussing a contract extension. Martin, who is slated to be a free agent in 2016, finished second for the league rushing title behind Adrian Peterson. He also scored six touchdowns. If the team cannot work out an extension they do not plan on using the franchise tag on him.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has had two Pro Bowl seasons, his rookie season and last season, and two injury-plagued seasons in between. It has been a mixed bag of fantasy results, but when he is in there for the full slate he has been tremendous.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin endorsed by head coach

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 20:14:32 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter said during his introductory press conference that he wants RB Doug Martin to be re-signed this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Martin piled up more than 1,600 yards from scrimmage this year, and with Koetter moving from offensive coordinator to head coach, Martin should continue to have a featured role in the offensive and provide RB1 value if he is back with Tampa Bay in 2016.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin has extension talks

Sat, 02 Jan 2016 08:35:00 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has recently had contract extension talks with the team, according to general manager Jason Licht. The two sides are only in the early stages at this point, but Martin has indicated that he is interested in returning to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) currently ranks second in the NFL with 1,354 rushing yards and has scored a touchdown in three of his last four games. He should be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore this week and will be an early-round pick next year no matter where he plays.

Buccaneers | OC wants Doug Martin back

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 19:21:57 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will be a free agent after the season ends, and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter wants him back. "I'll lobby hard," Koetter said Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) enters Week 17 ranked second in rushing yards behind Minnesota's Adrian Peterson with one game to go. Martin certainly emerged as a must-start fantasy option this season, and just in time for a giant payday from someone in the upcoming offseason.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin limited to 49 yards, TD

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 18:41:51 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed 17 times for just 49 yards in the Week 16 game against the Chicago Bears, although he was able to find the end zone once. He also had a six-yard catch on his only reception with three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Martin didn't pile up the yardage for his fantasy owners in Week 16, and he lost two fumbles which certainly did not help. It wasn't a total bust, but it wasn't great. He might have another ordinary stat line in Week 17 against the Carolina Panthers.
