2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
With LeGarrette Blount failing to build upon his solid rookie season and struggling for much of 2011, the Bucs traded back into the first round of this yearís draft to select Doug Martin. A solid all around running back, the Boise State product has decent size (5í9Ē, 223 pounds), agility and speed and excelled as a receiver and pass blocker in college. Martinís skill set sets him apart from Blount, who has struggled in a receiving role and is more of a power runner. That makes Martin the favorite to open the season as the teamís starter and earn a significant amount of touches in 2012. Given the addition of guard Carl Nicks, further improving an already solid offensive line, and new head coach Greg Schianoís preference to run the ball, Martin is a breakout candidate this season. The only issue dampening his fantasy prospects is that Blount is likely to earn the goal line work, which limits Martinís touchdown potential. Consider Martin a mid to lower tier RB2 in 2012 and an outstanding dynasty league prospect.

Doug Martin to be lead back for Bucs     -- Mon Aug 3 5:45 pm --

Starting RB job is Martin's to lose
If the Bucs are going to run the ball, Doug Martin must lead the way. "Definitely a key for us," Bucs coach Lovie Smith said. "We talked about being able to establish the run. Doug will be the lead guy doing that, so it's very important that we open up some holes and let him do his thing." (Tampa Times)

FF Today's Take: Earlier this off-season many speculated that Charles Sims would be the main ball carrier in the Bucs offense. It appears that head coach Lovie Smith and offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter will give Martin first opportunity at the job. Martin's best season came in 2012 when he finished 3rd among fantasy running backs and posted a 319-1454-11 line. He hasn't cracked 500 yards rushing in a season since. He'll have RB2 upside in standard re-draft leagues, currently being drafted as a RB3 (RB32 overall).
