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.

Bucs promote OC Dirk Koetter to Head Coach     -- Thu Jan 14 6:25 pm --

Helped oversee 4,000-yard season from rookie QB Jameis Winston
The Bucs are hiring OC Dirk Koetter as their new head coach and it will be finalized soon, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Koetter's name emerged as a potential replacement to Lovie Smith soon after the coach was fired last week. He was interviewed on Tuesday for the job. The offensive coordinator has been widely praised for his work with No. 1 overall pick Jameis Winston and running a balanced offense attack with Doug Martin, the NFL's No. 2 rusher in 2015. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Koetter has been an offensive coordinator at three different stops since his last head-coaching gig at Arizona State in 2006. He oversaw Maurice Jones-Drew's best years in Jacksonville, guided the Atlanta Falcons' offense to two top-10 finishes in total offense in three years before coaxing a fifth-place finish from the Bucs in his first year as a play-caller in Tampa. His presence is good news for all of the Bucs' skill-position players, especially Winston and Mike Evans.
