Martin put together a surprisingly awesome 2012 rookie campaign, finishing as the second-most productive fantasy running back in both standard scoring and PPR formats. Martin set team rookie records for rushing yards (1,454) and rushing touchdowns (11). In addition, he finished third among all running backs in total touches (368) and was second only to Adrian Peterson in total yards (1,926). There was a notable increase in Martin’s workload later in the season, too. From Week 1 through Week 6, he averaged 18.8 total touches per game, which jumped to an average of 25.5 total touches per contest the rest of the way. Listed at 5-foot-9, 223 pounds, Martin is a compact, powerful runner with great 4.49 speed and very good receiving skills. Getting starting guards Carl Nicks and Joseph Davin back healthy should help Martin avoid a sophomore slump. The 24-year-old Martin’s role as a receiver on a team that lacks a dominant tight end guarantees that he will compile solid fantasy stats each week – even if his rushing numbers tumble in a tough matchup. Martin should be among the first three running backs to come off the board in all fantasy drafts.
