It was all Martin on the opening drive as he took the Bucs down to the 1-yard line before Jameis Winston ran it in on a bootleg. Just as advertised, Martin appears quicker and leaner this year. His big play of the night was a 30-yard gain as he bulled his way through several arm tackles.

Fantasy Impact: Martin has a current ADP in the fifth round and with that he carries some value. One problem though is the Bucs project to be behind most games and will likely take through the air on Air Jameis instead of relying on a nice-size ground attack.

I haven't given up on ol' Muscle Hamster quite yet. The news that he has slimmed down to help gain speed may be off season drivel, but it has worked for running backs in the past and I've always like Martins' ability and so far he has looked faster this preseason.

The Muscle Hamster fell out of favor early last year, but he did gain some momentum with two strong performances to end the year. He's still a guy to watch.

This is a make or break year for Martin, as the Buccaneers declined to pick up his 2016 option. I think he will be the lead back in Tampa Bay, but it is going to be a frustrating committee there this season.

Doug Martin is so unloved that he could be one of the later steals of the draft. His current ADP is 71.2 which is late 6th/early 7th round pick. At the 2012 combine, Martin weighed 223 pounds. At the end of last season, he weighed 225 pounds. Conditioning has never been on of Martin's strong suits, but Martin got into shape during this off season and he is down to 210 points. Martin knows that it is a make or break season for him and maybe this re-dedication could lead to great things for fantasy owners this season. With the addition of QB Jameis Winston, and WRs Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson, defenses may be keying on the pass, which increases Martin's chances at a productive season.

Look for Doug Martin to lead the backfield in 2015 and he has potential to be a very nice value pick. He has amazing upside, but my expectations are 750 combined yards and 6 TDs.

I am far from a Martin apologist but I struggle to get over how wildly mediocre Sims looked last year. Perhaps he was still hampered from the foot injury that caused him to miss so much time, or perhaps he is be suited to be a COP and 3rd down RB.

Projected RB1 but hard to like with a 3.6 YPC average and just 3 TDs over the last two years.

BALLER MOVE: Target in rounds 7-10 as RB3 / RB4 ADP: 89 STD, 72 PPR ANALYSIS: Doug Martin is one of the more interesting players heading into this year’s fantasy football season. Going into the 2013 season, Martin was a top-five pick before he was plagued with a season-ending injury halfway through the campaign. Last... Read More

  Doug Martin made fantasy owners warm and fuzzy (sorta NSFW) in 2012. After being selected by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with the 31st overall pick in the NFL Draft, Martin exploded for 1,926 total yards on 319 carries and 49 receptions. He tallied 12 combined touchdowns and ended as the No. 3 running back in standard scoring. Then, 2013 Doug Martin happened. To say Martin was a disa...
