Volume back versus a tough front 7. A ranking just outside of the top-12 is warranted, but he'll see enough touches to be worth starting in most formats.

Carolina has one of the best defenses in the country and I expect them to keep Martin in check most the game. But if you have him, more than likely, you are starting him. Better days are ahead though, don't worry.

I love Martin, but not this week. CAR is tough overall, but brutal against the run. Martin could struggle to gain footing early.

Titans D isn't scaring anyone and Charles is a one man wrecking crew with Bowe out.

Martin is an average flex play against a tough Carolina defense. His only hope to tally respectable fantasy points is for the Buccaneers to throw him the ball and let him make plays in space.

The Titans gave up the third most points to fantasy running backs last year. I'm a little worried about the Chiefs offensive line, but I am not sure the Titans improved their run defense enough for it to matter.
