The Muscle Hampster has been fully healthy just two seasons in his career. He was a top 12 fantasy player in both of those seasons. Granted, we know he is missing 3 games to start the year, but he apparently looks better than ever and has put the demons behind him. If we see the good version of Martin, he could end up a top 5 running back come fantasy playoff time.Murray was back on the field for a few snaps and from the early impression, it seems as though they will use him in the same capacity as Matt Asiata last season. That isn't to say he will be an every week fantasy asset, but he will get enough goal-line work to be relevant.
Andy Singleton
Fantrax
 A better version of Asiata, who always had success in Minny? Don't give the rookie the entire pie just yet.
Staff Rankings
ScoutFantasy
He's back and our Scout Fantasy founder and former #1 ranked player in the World, Ian Ritchie named him his comeback player of the year.  
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Martin should remain the lead back after his three-game suspension. He will likely concede touches to a few different backs, but I think he'll hold onto the lead role.Murray will need to beat out Dalvin Cook once he returns from his injury, and Cook has looked good this offseason. I expect Cook to win the majority of the touches.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Martin is suspended the first three games after failing a PED test. Very inconsistent throughout his career, there is a real risk that he does not immediately return to a starters' role.Entering his fourth season, Murray now finds himself on a new team in a new role. He's been injured for most of training camp so far, and Dalvin Cook has begun to get some serious praise during that time. Murray's role at best will be as a touchdown dependant thumper.
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Facing three-game suspension; followed up stellar 2015 campaign with horrid injury-plagued 2016 and a 2.9 YPC; contract year could get him back on track, but far from certain; weak o-line a concern.Hard to see him beating out Cook for starting gig; 12 TDs last season more to do with Raiders stellar o-line; started camp on PUP.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Bucs GM Jason Licht said Sunday there are no assurances suspended RB Doug Martin will regain his starting job following his three-game ban.Latavius Murray (ankle, active/PUP) said his injury has put him "behind the 8-ball."
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
The Muscle Hamster could be a dud or he could be one of the biggest steals in the draft. I'm currently leaning on steal

Corey Parson
RotoExperts
Martin will miss the first four games of the season due to suspension. When he returns, he will likely share time with Jacquizz Rodgers. Auction Value $4 Murray's 12 touchdowns in Oakland last season saved an otherwise pedestrian campaign. This season, Minnesota rookie Dalvin Cook will likely make Murray a reserve. Auction Value $6
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Coming back to a team with Mike Evans, DeSean Jackson, O.J. Howard, and Chris Godwin will be a welcoming sight for Martin, who only has three games left on his suspension. We've seen a hit-or-miss Martin over his career, but he has finished as a top-three running back twice. He could be a steal at this point.Despite finishing as the No. 13 running back in 2016, Murray wasn't very good, hence the reason the Raiders let him walk to sign a 31-year-old retired running back. Going from the Raiders offensive line that's ranked top-three in the NFL to the Vikings offensive line that ranks among the five worst was already a problem, but then he had foot surgery, and the Vikings traded up to draft Dalvin Cook in the second round. It's likely that Murray has seen his final days of fantasy relevance.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Martin has looked very good in OTAs. He does have to serve a 3-game suspension, but it looks like he should retain the starting role when he returns and have a chance to be a low-end flex on an explosive offense that figures to use a RBBC.
