A surprisingly awesome 2012 rookie campaign quickly secured Martin’s membership in the small-but-elite club of three-down workhorse fantasy running backs. He finished in the top eight in carries, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, receptions and receiving yards. In addition, Martin ranked third 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. He averaged 18.8 total touches per game in his first six contests, which jumped to an average of 25.5 total touches per game 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. He should be among the first three running backs to come off the board.
