2016 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Doug Martin out three weeks     -- Wed Sep 21 8:00 am --

Hamstring injury
The Bucs will be without Pro Bowl running back Doug Martin for about three weeks as he recovers from his hamstring injury, the NFL Network reported Wednesday. (Tampa Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Martin was injured early in the second quarter last Sunday. Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers will handle the rushing duties while Martin recovers with Sims being the lead back. Expect Martin to return in Week 7 after the Bucs bye in Week 6.
Bucs waive RB Mike James, sign WR Cecil Shorts     -- Wed Sep 7 12:30 pm --

Backend depth chart moves

FF Today's Take: Back-end of the depth chart moves here. James was the third tailback behind Doug Martin and Charles Sims. Expect the Bucs to add a running back in the next few days, perhaps Rodgers or someone from the practice squad. Shorts signed a one-year deal and could compete with Adam Humphries for the No. 3 receiver job.
