Fantasy's number 3 overall RB in 2015 should be in line for another great year.

- Sablich Brothers, The NY Times

Fought through pesky injuries last season and enjoyed a moderate bounceback in Buffalo.

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.

Rotoworld reported that McCoy will sit out OTAs with a hamstring injury. This seems like a Groundhog Day situation, head coach Rex Ryan said it's "not serious." That is what we were told last year and when he had a hamstring injury and then re-injured it early in the season.

Martin has had an up-and-down four-year career. He finished as the #2 RB (PPR) as a rookie, and then only managed to play 17 games over t...

Last year, McCoy finished #17 in standard formats and #19 in PPR, but was a low-end RB1 in both formats on a per game basis since he only...

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.

We know that the Buffalo Bills love to run the football. The average Rushing Play % in the in the NFL 2015 season was 42.51%. Out of all the NFL teams, the Buffalo Bills led them all in 2015 with a Rushing Play % 52.26%. Jonathan Williams is the new RB handcuff for LeSean McCoy, although Williams was recently arrested for a DWI and may be facing criminal charges and a league suspension. If Williams is suspended, Mike Gillislee would be LeSean McCoy's RB handcuff.

Was crazy good last year but he may not be needed quite as much and Charles Sims is always lurking

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

Talent-wise, Shady can still be a fantasy beast. I like the upside and value with him this year

- Kevin Roberts, Breaking Football

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 Sims

McCoy was not what we wanted him to be last season, but if you take out the two games in which he left with an injury and the four he missed due to those injuries, he averaged 97.5 yards per game and had a decent 4.4 yards per carry. But the real reason I still like him for this coming season is he in no way looked done to me. After Chip Kelly unloaded him on the Bills, I figured back-to-back 300-plus-carry seasons had slowed McCoy down too much, but from what I saw of him when healthy in 2015, he was making the same moves and had the same burst as before. Add in the fact that Tyrod Taylor's ability to run will help whomever is the lead back in Buffalo, and I'm going to double down on Shady for 2016

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

- Brandon Funston, Yahoo! Sports

Was the No. 7 RB in FAN PPG (min. 10 games) in '15, and his primary backups (the Williams) are doing what they can to play themselves out of the Buffalo backfield picture

- Brandon Funston, Yahoo! Sports

I like Doug Martin, I just like his back up more.

Remains one of the leagues brightest talents on a run-first team
