2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
After Doug Martin burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2012, he was the center of fantasy owners' teams. A true feature back, the young Buc was unable to live up to lofty expectations before losing last year's second half to a shoulder injury. As one of only five running backs to tote the rock more than 300 times in 2012 preceding the injury, you can bet Tampa Bay felt a need to reduce Martin's workload. In fact, new offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford told reporters over the offseason that he didn't feel one running back could carry the load in today's NFL. Accordingly, the Buccaneers added dynamic playmaker Charles Sims in this year's draft to improve the quality of depth behind Martin. The result will be a dip below the 300-carry threshold in a newly-formed RBBC , but Martin's production in the passing game should continue to provide a slight boost even if he loses a few targets. His touchdown totals may not reach double-digits either considering the competition for carries as well as the ability for Josh McCown to throw a jump ball to one of several big targets. For these reasons, the Muscle Hamster becomes a far better RB2 than RB1 in the fantasy realm. As always, keep a close eye on the new offense during the preseason to gain further insight into Tampa Bay's RBBC.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Doug Martin misses practice Friday
Will likely be inactive
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 31, 1:45 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
For the third day in a row, the Bucs practiced without starting left tackle Anthony Collins (foot) and running back Doug Martin (ankle) with return specialist Trindon Holliday joining them on the sidelines Friday after tweaking a hamstring in Thursday's drills. Barring a surprise, all three would likely be inactive for Sunday's game at Cleveland (Tampa Times)

FFToday's Take: Martin hasn't officially been ruled out but he's a candidate for the inactive list on Sunday. In his absence, Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims will likely handle the rushing duties against the Browns with Rainey getting the start.


Injury Doug Martin not practicing Thursday
Shed walking boot; likely questionable for Week 9

FFToday's Take: Martin was wearing a walking boot through Wednesday, making him a question mark against the Browns this weekend. Despite their public offerings to the contrary, the Bucs are probably ready to see if rookie Charles Sims can spark their running game. To that end, Auman speculated in an earlier tweet that Sims could see 10-plus touches this weekend. If Martin cannot play in Week 9, Bobby Rainey will draw the start.


Injury Martin and Jackson practice for the Bucs
Mike Glennon likely to get the start at QB
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 25, 12:10 pm

For the Bucs, in addition to McCoy, Mike Glennon is likely to start for QB Josh McCown (thumb), rookie TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) was limited in practice while RB Doug Martin (knee) was a full go, along with WR Vincent Jackson (wrist) (Tampa Bay Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Martin has gotten off to a rocky start with 9 total rushing yards after three weeks. Backup Bobby Rainey put the ball on the ground twice in Week 3 so the coaching staff shouldn't hesitate to give Martin a chance to regain the starting running back job in Week 4.


Injury Doug Martin officially Inactive
Bobby Rainey expected to start

FFToday's Take: Bobby Rainey moves into RB2 territory with Martin watching on the sidelines. The Falcons have given up the most fantasy points to running backs over the first two weeks.


Injury Bucs likely without Doug Martin in Week 3
Team also expects to be minus Gerald McCoy
By: Doug Orth | Thu Sep 18, 4:10 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers listed DT Gerald McCoy and RB Doug Martin as questionable for Thursday night’s game against the Falcons, but it doesn’t look like either one of them will be on the field. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that McCoy and Martin are both unlikely to be active for the NFC South matchup. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Martin is expected to test his knee before the call is officially made to deactivate him, so there is still a glimmer of hope for his owners that he'll be able to play in what should be a juicy matchup. If he cannot go, then Bobby Rainey is a high-end RB2 play. McCoy's absence should allow Matt Ryan & Co. to feel a bit more comfortable in the pocket, meaning the Falcons have a shot to put up some stellar offensive numbers.


Injury Doug Martin questionable, expected to start
Head coach calls Martin "lead guy"
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Sep 12, 7:00 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Doug Martin practiced last week and, although he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game, is expected back in the lineup against the St. Louis Rams. "I've talked about how important Doug is to us," (Lovie) Smith said. "Just our running game in general, we were trying to get it going with all of our guys. Doug is our lead guy. We weren't able to for whatever reason this first game, but we'll stay committed to it." (Tampa Tribune)

FFToday's Take: Martin was removed from last week's game due to a knee injury but should get the start when the Bucs host the Rams on Sunday. Bobby Rainey will serve as Martin's backup. Martin has RB2 upside but needs a solid performance this week to ease the minds of his fantasy owners.


Injury Bucs RB Chalres Sims to have ankle surgery
Expected to miss 12-14 weeks
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 15, 3:14 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rookie Charles Sims, a third-round draft pick, is expected to miss 12-14 weeks because of a right ankle injury that occurred Tuesday and requires surgery, the team announced. The Bucs have not said what the injury is, but that Sims will have surgery on Saturday. Sims walked around in a protective boot on Thursday. (Tampa Tribune)

FFToday's Take: The rookie has been battling with Bobby Rainey and Mike James during camp in hopes of being part of a rotation at running back with starter Doug Martin. Rainey is the favorite to win the No. 2 job but Martin is the only runner to own in this backfield.
