Fantasy Analysis
Week 14 Projections
FRIDAY UPDATE: Martin's name didn't appear on the injury report, so apparently the injury that forced him to miss the closing minutes of his team's Week 13 win over the San Diego Chargers was minor. However, the Buccaneers, unhappy with Martin averaging just 2.9 YPC during the last month, have promised to get Jacquizz Rodgers more involved. Consider Martin (21.8 touches and 77.3 total yards per game with two rushing scores in the last month), who is still the starter, a fantasy RB2 play versus a New Orleans Saints defense that has hemorrhaged the seventh-most fantasy points to running backs.
Rushing: 65 Yards, 0 TD.
Receiving: 3 Receptions, 23 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
It goes without saying, that the success of Doug Martin last year came as a bit of a shock to anyone playing fantasy football. After exploding out the gate his rookie year, Martin fell precipitously off a cliff in 2013 and 2014, sidelined by a combination of injuries and low production in the running game. As a result, he was most likely the running back pick most snickered at in 2015 in your draft room, with many believing owners were merely chasing long-gone glory with the Muscle Hamster. Uh, not so, as Martin went on to dominate touches in the Jameis Winston-offense, amassing 1,400 yards on the ground and 6 touchdowns in a contract year. So is this the new normal? Well....maybe. Charles Sims is still around and is sure to siphon at least a few touches from Martin as the season progresses, and frankly, there is little guarantee Martin can once again avoid the injury issues that have plagued him in the past. If he does, there is little argument that Martin can produce, at minimum, RB2 numbers for fantasy owners, and still holds the potential for championship-winning RB1 production. Unless you are a risk taker, assume a season of slightly more than 1,000 yards rushing for 2016 and you should be safe.

Rushing: 925 Yards, 6 TD.
Receiving: 25 Receptions, 200 Yards, 2 TD.
