2014 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.

Comment: As a rookie, Martin has a chance to unseat LeGarrette Blount as the Bucs starting running back.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Doug Martin questionable, expected to start     -- Fri Sep 12 7:00 pm --

Head coach calls Martin "lead guy"
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)

FF Today'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     -- Fri Aug 15 3:14 pm --

Expected to miss 12-14 weeks
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)

FF Today'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.
