Buccaneers | Doug Martin inactive

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:01:14 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is officially inactive Thursday, Sept. 18.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin not expected to be involved

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 13:34:49 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) may not be active in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Sept. 18. If he is active, he's not expected to be involved much in the game plan.

Fantasy Tip: If you needed something else to persuade you not to put Martin in your lineup, this is it. Bobby Rainey should see a heavy workload, and his price at FantasyScore ($4,700) is worth considering.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin unlikely to play

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:43:38 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is unlikely to play in the team's Week 3 game due to a knee injury, according to a league source. Martin will test the knee out pregame to be sure.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Martin should not be considered in FantasyScore. Bobby Rainey was scheduled to get the start anyway, and may see even more work if Martin is indeed ruled out. With a FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.4% of cap), Rainey is a great option.

Buccaneers | Bobby Rainey to start

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 07:33:34 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Bobby Rainey will start in Week 3. The decision is not primarily because of RB Doug Martin's (knee) injury, but also because the team really likes Rainey.

Fantasy Tip: Martin will still be involved, but his stock in the near term has fallen considerably. Rainey ($4,700; 9.4% of your cap) is a better play on FantasyScore than Martin ($5,900; 11.8%) right now.

Buccaneers | Tampa to use RB committee

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 06:20:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) and RB Bobby Rainey are expected to split carries in Week 3 and in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has more upside than Rainey, but Rainey has the hot hand. Martin ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) and Rainey ($4,700; 9.4%) are good flex options this week on FantasyScore. Rainey might be the better play of the two with Martin coming off of an injury.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin questionable

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 11:09:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has a good chance to play in Week 3 but could be limited because of the injury. Martin costs $5,900 on FantasyScore this week, but may be too expensive for owners since he could share reps with Bobby Rainey during the game. At $4,700 on FantasyScore, Rainey could be a better option to use.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin limited at practice

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:10:11 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) was limited at practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Sept. 16.

Fantasy Tip: All signs are pointing to Martin playing in Week 3 Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons, but how many touches he'll see remains to be seen, especially after Bobby Rainey performed well in his absence in Week 2. It seems foolish to play Martin for $5,900 at FantasyScore when you could go with the much safer play in Rainey for $4,700.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin should play in Week 3

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 07:41:01 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (knee) has a good chance to play in Week 3 on Thursday Night Football. The team held him out of the Week 2 game to ensure that he would be ready for Week 3 at Atlanta. RB Bobby Rainey, who had 22 carries for 144 yards in Week 2, could be heavily involved as well.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned this week for further details on how much of a timeshare we can expect moving forward.
