Buccaneers | Doug Martin mostly ineffective

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 18:52:06 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 10 times for 26 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on his three targets.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was outgained 58-26 on the ground by Peyton Barber, who was tremendously effective on the ground when Martin was sidelined by injury the week before. It appears there is going to be a Tampa timeshare in the backfield and Martin might be on the short end.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin starting in Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 07:41:22 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Martin was a full practice participant throughout the week and was not listed on the injury report. He should be viewed as nothing more than a flex option in deeper fantasy leagues this afternoon, especially given how well RB Peyton Barber played in his absence.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin off injury report

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 15:16:44 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) was able to practice fully on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is expected to start in Week 14, and that's bad news for the fantasy outlook of Peyton Barber. Martin should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Lions.

Buccaneers | Week 14 injury report for Tampa

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 15:16:21 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Vernon Hargreaves III (hamstring), DT Clinton McDonald (back), CB Joshua Robinson (hamstring) and SS T.J. Ward (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and all are listed as out for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions. DE Ryan Russell (knee) practiced in full and is considered questionable. DE Robert Ayers (concussion), C Joe Hawley (illness), RB Doug Martin (concussion) and QB Jameis Winston (ankle) each practiced in full and are off the injury report.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin likely to start Week 14

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 11:23:13 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) is expected to rejoin the starting lineup in Week 14, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

Fantasy Tip: It's a predictable but sad choice from head coach Dirk Koetter. Martin hasn't averaged four yards per carry in a game since his Week 5 debut or scored a touchdown since Week 6. Peyton Barber scored twice on five carries in Week 12 and was the featured back in last week's loss to the Green Bay Packers, churning out 143 total yards on 27 touches. Martin figures to be on a short leash, but Koetter's decision makes it nearly impossible to start either player with any kind of confidence this weekend.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin also a full participant

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:45:56 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Tampa Bay's backfield is a conundrum with Martin and Peyton Barber both vying for the starting job. Barber deserves to start again after a great fill-in job last week, plus Martin hasn't exactly done anything to write home about. The Muscle Hamster can't be started as more than a flex, and that might even be risky.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin practices in full

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 14:51:50 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Martin cleared concussion protocol and it is a good sign he practiced in full and wasn't even limited. Peyton Barber was sharp last week in a fill-in role and he might have worked his way into a timeshare situation with Martin, but that's just speculation. Still, a timeshare situation wouldn't be good for the fantasy appeal of either.

Buccaneers | Wednesday's practice report for Tampa

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 14:51:20 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Vernon Hargreaves III (hamstring), C Joe Hawley (illness), DT Clinton McDonald (back), S Joshua Robinson (hamstring), DE Ryan Russell (knee) and SS T.J. Ward (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Dec. 6. DE Robert Ayers (concussion), RB Doug Martin (concussion) and QB Jameis Winston (ankle) practiced in full.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin back at practice

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 10:31:05 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, for the first time since he suffered a concussion against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen whether or not Martin will reclaim his starting job or split carries with Peyton Barber, who ran 23 times for 102 yards in Week 13 versus the Green Bay Packers. If they split carries, neither back figures to be any better than a RB3 option despite a plus-matchup with the Detroit Lions.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin still in concussion protocol

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 19:27:34 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has yet to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's status is expected to be updated Wednesday, and it will make for an interesting situation should he be cleared for Week 14. Peyton Barber gave Tampa Bay its first 100-yard rusher of the season in a loss the Green Bay Packers in Week 13, handling 23 of the 30 carries from the Buccaneers' backfield. If Martin plays, owners should expect a near-even split of the carries. If not, Barber has a very favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions' run defense.
