The Tampa Tribune reports that Lovie Smith plans to reduce Doug Martin's 23 touch per game average from his first two seasons. Smith acknowledged Martin will be the starter, but a committee approach could be used. (Source: Tampa Tribune)

Fantasy Impact: It seems as though Mike James, Bobby Rainey, and rookie Charles Sims will be eating into Martin's workload this season.

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.

Ups and downs characterize the short careers of Ryan Mathews and Doug Martin. Both have penetrated the RB1 class. Both have triggered massive migraines. In this cage-match to the death, Brad Evans and Andy Behrens beat one another to a bloddy pulp over who you should draft.  Sound the bell ...  The Noise, naturally, professes his renewed love for Mathews:  Well, well, well … ...
