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

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) took most of the first-team repetitions in practice Friday, Nov. 21.

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

Tamp Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) was limited in practice and is questionable for Week 12.

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

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RBs Doug Martin (ankle) and Charles Sims (ankle) were both limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

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.

Buccaneers | Doug Martin practicing

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 11:59:57 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

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

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Washington Redskins, according to head coach Lovie Smith.

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.

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 13:26:47 -0800

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Martin is a big red flag with the injury and Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims in the mix. It's best to stay away from him at this point.

Thu, 13 Nov 2014 11:06:01 -0800

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: While it is not clear how much he was able to do in practice, it is a good sign that Martin was able to get any work in. He should still be avoided in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Martin should continue to be avoided in FantasyScore with Charles Sims and Bobby Rainey continuing to get a majority of the work, with Rainey being a decent flex option.
