Martin has been an RB1 multiple times in his career and it wouldn't surprise anyone if he suddenly returned to that type of production. With that said, he should also be considered the underdog to win the starting job with Marshawn Lynch on the roster. Even if he does, it would likely be a split workload.

Doug Martin to compete for starting job?

Raiders beat writer Vic Tafur is reporting that based on what he's seeing at OTA workouts, Doug Martin has a real shot to compete with Marshawn Lynch for the starting job.

Fantasy Impact

It's been a surprise to see Martin so low in early rankings, as it seemed like the Raiders made it a priority to bring him in once free agency started, as he was one of the first running backs to sign. Meanwhile, Lynch is now 32 years old with plenty of mileage on his body. After playing behind the Bucs lackluster offensive line, Martin will now play behind one that most consider top-five in the league. For a running back who's rushed for more than 1,400 yards twice in his career, don't count him out of this battle. He's someone to take a flier on late in best-ball leagues at the chance he earns the starting job, or at the very least, an 8-12 touch role in the offense.
