A lot of people are going to reach for Martin but the emergence of Mike James, showed me how bad Martin was during the first half of the season. Buyer beware.
These darn New Orleans RB's are going to continue to drive fantasy owners up-the-wall. Don't touch them unless the value is great. They will once again be splitting time on any given Sunday.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Clear cut bell cow back with injuries to Sims and James.
Coming off an encouraging '13, he'll compete with Khirly for his share of early-down duties.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Tampa Bay is coupled with a very questionable Offensive line along with a brand new OC, Jeff Tedford that has never coached in the NFL before. Tedford has been at coaching at Cal the past 10 seasons, so it’s hard to suggest what his offense will exactly look like . ESPN Bucs reporter says “the Bucs want to use a rotation at the RB position this season,” as both new head coach Lovie Smith and Jeff Tedford are very fond of. “One running back just can’t make it through the season,” says Smith. The new regime in Tampa are not the ones who drafted Doug Martin, but they are the ones who spent a Top 70 pick on receiving back Charles Sims. Lovie Smith remains committed to Doug Martin being big part of their offense, but expect Charles Sims to replace him on passing downs while Rainey and James are also mixed within the Running Back Committee.
 
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Played in only 6 games last season due to a torn labrum in his shoulder. Look for Martin's workload to diminish this season as Tampa Bay drafted Charles Sims in round 3 to give Martin a breather on occasions during passing downs. Martin should be drafted as a RB2 with RB1 upside. Tampa wants to rotate their RBs this year.
 
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Doug Martin probably belongs in tier three for now but as an ‘old regime’ back who has to deal with a very impressive rookie in Charles Sims, who is already a better receiver out of the backfield and who is a more exciting runner, he gets knocked down a tier due to his forecasted value hit.
Mark Ingram seems to finally be in line to get 200+ carries for the Saints with Sproles out of town but will still lose most passing down work to Pierre Thomas.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The talent is there but that huge role may not be. He should still be a threat for the top-5.
Could finally get a shot in contract year. Barely has RB2 upside though with how Saints shift RBs around.

Bumping him up into 2nd tier. Going to touch the rock a lot.
 
  
Smitty
Fantasy Football Starters
With Sims, the rookie, suffering injury, the threat of RBBC has quickly vanished. Martin's ADP hasn't rebounded since those threats, though, which is great news for those looking for a low-end RB1 outside of the top 20 overall.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I think Martin will have a bounce back season in Lovie Smith's run oriented offense. I also do not view the torn labrum injury that cut his season short as an injury as that screams injury prone. I have lowered him in my rankings due to a Buccaneers offensive line that has been awful at run blocking in the preseason. Trading for G Logan Mankins will help, but quick fixes don't usually work on the offensive line.
Ingram has looked good in the preseason, which is going to zap the fantasy value of RB Khiry Robinson if the two continue to receive a split of the rushing attempts with Thomas playing in passing situations. For the first time this year, I have Ingram ranked ahead of Robinson. Ingram has seized his opportunity in preseason, Robinson has not seized it.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Muscle Hamster's stock has fallen a bit with talk of his role being reduced, but I see Tedford upping the run game and that should compensate for any spreading out of touches for the running backs. Martin is still a top tier player.
Ingram has been moving on up in my rankings of late. He averaged 4.9 yards a carry last year, looked great in the playoffs and Sproles is gone. He caught a touchdown pass against the Titans, his first receiving TD while in the NFL and is being groomed for a larger role in the offense. His ADP is very low, so drafting him won't break the bank, and his upside is pretty high this year.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
A hard guy to peg. Tampa O-line has taken hits.
Looked better last year but won't get enough touches to be a difference-maker.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
He is a forgotten RB except if you were burned last year by his injury. He will slip in drafts, but his amazing upside can not be overlooked.
Keep an eye on Ingram's situation. If you can draft him very late in the draft he has some potential upside. I have been keeping an eye on him in the later part of the 2013 season and there is some potential left in Ingram.

Workload no longer much of a concern with rookie RB Smis injured; 27% of career fantasy PTS came in 2 of his 22 games played
