2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Tampa Bay leaned on their rushing attack a year ago to reduce the pressure on their rookie quarterback and Doug Martin responded by finishing as the sixth most productive fantasy running back. His 288 carries were more than everyone not named Adrian Peterson. His effort was rewarded with a new contract extension that guarantees the 27-year old tailback $15 million. That being said, fantasy owners simply expecting a repeat performance from Tampaís leading rusher may be disappointed. The Bucs offense figures to become more balanced in 2016 and backup Charles Sims will have a significant role in an effort to help reduce the workload on their plow horse. Additionally, many investors may have lingering injury concerns after Martinís two-year dry spell prior to last yearís rebound. Adding it all up leaves Martinís true fantasy value outside the top six rushers but not quite out of the positionís top fifteen options.

News From The Past 90 Days
Doug Martin to be inactive Week 17
Future with the Bucs in doubt
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 27, 10:30 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Two days after being benched for the first time in his pro career, Doug Martin's season appears to be over and his future with the Bucs is in doubt. Martin, the two-time Pro Bowl running back who was told to take a seat for the Bucs' 31-24 loss to the Saints on Saturday, will not be active for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Panthers. (Tampa Bay Times)

FFToday's Take: Martin has fallen out of favor in Tampa which led to Jacquizz Rodgers receiving the majority of the snaps against the Saints in Week 16. It appears Rodgers will be in line for another big workload in Week 17 against the Panthers. The Bucs are expected to sign RB Russell Hansbrough off the Giants practice squad.


Injury Bucs welcome pair of RBs back to practice
Bucs must decide on Charles Sims within next 21 days
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 23, 7:23 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
TAMPA, Fla. -- Buccaneers running backs Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers returned to practice Wednesday. Sims has been on injured reserve since suffering a knee injury in Week 4, but he has been designated as the team's player to return from IR. The Buccaneers have 21 days to decide whether to activate Sims and add him to the 53-man roster. (ESPN.com)

FFToday's Take: Doug Martin has 40 carries in the two games he has played since returning from his own injury and is locked in at the top of the depth chart. He should continue to be a RB2 even after reinforcements arrive but fantasy owners should be weary of the potential for a RBBC to develop in the coming weeks. Jacquizz Rodgers is nearing a return and could step into a complementary role similar to Sims' earlier this season but his status for Week 12 remains up in the air. A return by Charles Sims in the next three weeks would only add another useful option for Tampa to mix into the offense so stay tuned as this situation evolves.


Injury Doug Martin expected to be limited
Should split carries with Barber
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Nov 13, 8:10 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The plan is for #Bucs RB Doug Martin (hamstring) to be active and make his return today, but his workload should be limited, source said. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Martin won't be a recommended fantasy play as it appears he will be splitting snaps with rookie Peyton Barber. Both are flex considerations in a decent matchup against the Bears.


Injury Doug Martin a gametime decision
Limited in practice all week
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 11, 11:15 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said Doug Martin will be a "game-time decision." He still hasn't been cleared to play. Said he's done a little more each day this week. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Martin has been limited in practice this week and would likely split time with rookie Peyton Barber making him difficult to trust as an RB2. The Bucs and Bears play early Sunday so we should know Martin's status by 11:30 AM Eastern.


Injury Bucs RB Doug Martin returns to practice
Hamstring injury
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 9, 5:30 pm

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Doug Martin returned to practice for the first time since injuring his hamstring in Week 2. Bucs coach Dirk Koetter told reporters that Martin was limited in Wednesday's practice session, but he wouldn't speculate on whether Martin would be available to play against the Chicago Bears this week. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Tampa Bay desperately needs a healthy running back after the team lost Antone Smith to injury last week. Unless Doug Martin is able to fully participate on Friday the Bucs will turn to Peyton Barber and Mike James to handle the rushing duties versus the Bears in Week 10. Even if Martin is cleared, he may be on a snap count so keep a close eye on his progress as the weekend approaches.


Injury Jacquizz Rodgers still in walking boot
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Nov 7, 11:45 am

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
No word on Bucs RB Jacquizz Rodgers' foot injury, but he's still wearing a walking boot in locker room today, eight days after his injury. (Greg Auman on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bucs have cycled through a number of running backs this season with Doug Martinm, Charles Sims and Rodgers all suffering significant injuries. It could be the Peyton Barber show in Week 10 against the Bears. If so, he'll be on the RB2 radar.
