Martin re-signed with Tampa Bay after a big free agency season in 2015. Will he be able to muster the drive for this year like last? Probably, but it always concerns me a bit. The good news is that he has the ability to put up numbers like he did in 2015. I do wish Martin were the every-down back instead of losing touches to Charles SimsWhen Foster is healthy, he seems to still have his skills intact, but health is not one of Foster's strong suits, especially of late. But he has looked good so far in Miami and if he can stay healthy, will be the lead back
Jeff Boggis

I find it difficult to place a lot of stock in Doug Martin as a feature back with the presence of Charles Sims. I would not surprise me if Sims receives enough carries to limit Martin's fantasy value this season. In the past 4 seasons he's had 2 good years and 2 average years. I am not willing to invest a top draft pick to find out what his season is going to be like in 2016.

I like Doug Martin, I just like his back up more.Will rise quickly if reports of bellcow role appear true

5th Down Fantasy
Fantasy's number 3 overall RB in 2015 should be in line for another great year. The favorite to see the majority of carries and by far the best pass catching back on the roster.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Was crazy good last year but he may not be needed quite as much and Charles Sims is always lurkingAchilles injuries are tough to come back from but he's a rare breed and Miami is giving him every chance to be the workhorse
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Stepped up in a major way in '15, handling 288 carries and finishing as a top 3 fantasy RB as Tampa Bay looked to limit rookie QB Winston's exposure in the pass game - likely will see a reduction in workload in '16 as Bucs' lengthen Winston's leash and also mix passing down RB Charles Sims in a bit more 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
The Muscle Hampster was second in the league with over 1,400 rushing yards but only managed to find the end zone on 6 runs. Being the type of runner he is, Martin is likely to see a big bump in touchdown rate, and assuming Winston continues to progress and at least one of Tampa's top three receivers actually stays healthy, Martin could see even better fantasy numbers in 2016.Yes, Foster has spent most of the past few seasons injured, but consider that he had over 100 yards from scrimmage in all three games he started last season. His skills are still clearly in place, all he needs is to beat out Jay Ajayi and stay healthy. If he can do that then you have a low-end RB1 on your hands.
TJ Kaczan
Dynasty Football Factory
 When he signs he will be signed as a starter. Buy buy buy with his current ADP, expect it to sky rocket over the summer.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Martin had a great contract year with 288 rushing attempts for 1402 yards and 6 touchdowns. He also added 33 receptions for 271 yards and a touchdown. He resigned with Tampa Bay, which should allow him to continue being a solid RB1 in 2016 on an ascending offense.
