Buccaneers | Doug Martin flashing 2015 form

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 09:12:37 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is receiving a ton of offseason praise from a number of sources, not the least of which is general manager Jason Licht. "(Martin) looks lean, he looks like he's finishing his runs - obviously, there is no contact in the spring - but it looks like he's finishing his runs. He looks like he's got that burst. ... He looks like the Doug Martin of 2015," Licht told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Fantasy Tip: It's important to remember Martin will miss the first three games due to suspension and doesn't boast the best track record when it comes to staying healthy. While it is entirely possible he can return to being a fantasy RB1, those two factors alone make him a risky bet and someone owners should not be trying to move up draft boards just because he is looking good in non-padded practices.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin living in weight room?

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 09:10:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin looks quicker and bulkier than he did only two or three weeks ago, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Thought to be a cut candidate earlier this spring, Martin appears primed to enjoy a bounce-back year once he is able to return from his season-opening three-game suspension. Jacquizz Rodgers, Charles Sims and rookie Jeremy McNichols figure to pick up the slack in his absence. Once Martin returns, he could easily be an upside RB2 in what should be a very good offense.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin working with first team

Tue, 23 May 2017 08:56:07 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been working with the first-team offense in organized team activities Tuesday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Martin still has three games to serve on his suspension, but the reports have been glowing on him this offseason. Of course, it could be smoke and mirrors in an attempt to trade him, but he could be a bounce-back RB3 candidate in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin OK after accident

Thu, 04 May 2017 14:14:19 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin suffered minor cuts and bruises as a result of a car accident Thursday, May 4, according to a report from the Tampa Police Department.

Fantasy Tip: Martin has plenty of traffic to maneuver through in his own backfield, too. Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers will stint Martin's receiving game and take away some of his carries. Injuries forced Martin missed eight games last year, paving the way for Sims and then Rodgers to earn more playing time. Given the crowded backfield and the fact that he has only played a full season in two of his five years, Martin is merely a flex consideration.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin impressing

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 05:20:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been the most impressive player in training thus far, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Buccaneers passed on RB Dalvin Cook in the first round, in part, because of this, according to the source. Martin still has a ways to go before he can make a comfortable RB2, and he still has three games left to serve on his suspension. He'd be a good RB3 in fantasy.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin back with team

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 06:27:18 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has completed rehab and re-joined the team for offseason conditioning.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's status with the team is dicey, and he still has three games to serve in his suspension. He'll be an RB3 with bounce-back potential at best in fantasy drafts.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to work out with team next week

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 12:56:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is expected to be with the team for the start of offseason workouts Monday, April 17, according to Florida Football Insiders' Roy Cummings.

Fantasy Tip: According to Cummings, Martin has been to and apparently completed a drug rehabilitation program, and the team is apparently "all good" with the situation at the moment. While Buccaneers may still very well add a running back in the draft later this month, they didn't do so in free agency, signaling they have at least a little bit of faith Martin can recapture his old form. With that said, Martin remains a question mark to make the roster this summer and must sit out the first three games of the season if he does.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin to be featured?

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 17:52:40 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head Dirk Koetter said it is hard to feature two running backs in an offense, and offensive coordinator Todd Monken said he is looking forward to having RB Doug Martin back. "It will be great getting a guy like Doug back to where he was that will add to that explosion, because we just didn't have that in the run game last year, with all the injuries," Monken said. "We had six different guys carry the ball last year."

Fantasy Tip: Despite Monken's optimism, there is no guarantee Martin will even be back with the team, let alone be an effective starter. He will also be suspended for the first three games, so his fantasy value is up in the air at this point.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin out of rehab

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 10:03:50 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin completed his stay at an undisclosed rehab center in February, according to the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud. He will still miss the first three games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy in December.

Fantasy Tip: There's been much speculation that Martin won't even make it to training camp based on his injury history and the fact there is no guaranteed money left on his contract. If Tampa Bay uses an early pick on a runner next month, it's a good bet he'll need to find another job, as the Bucs like Jacquizz Rodgers and value Charles Sims as a weapon in the passing game.

Buccaneers | No quick decision coming on Doug Martin

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 18:31:40 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is unlikely to find out his fate regarding his status with the team anytime in the near future, according to head coach Dirk Koetter. "Doug's under contract right now and no decision has to be made on that right now, so we don't have to rush it. … But one of the things high on our list is what's going to happen with our running back situation? But we don't have to make a decision on that right now," Koetter said.

Fantasy Tip: Martin signed a five-year deal worth $35.75 million last offseason, but his late-season PED drug suspension allows the team to void the rest of his guaranteed money ($7 million) and cut him without much incident. The Bucs are high on Jacquizz Rodgers and should be considered one of the favorites to add a running back in one of the first three rounds of the NFL Draft next month. If they do, expect Martin to be released shortly thereafter.
