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 playoff time.

Doug Martin's starting job remains in question

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter told the media that "it's impossible to say" Doug Martin will remain the team's starting running back when he is eligible to return from his suspension in Week 4.

Fantasy Impact

Martin, who rushed for 30 yards and a touchdown on five carries Thursday night against the Jaguars, is continuing to impress this offseason. However, since he will serve the remainder of his four-game suspension to open the year -- he will miss the first three games -- Koetter is declining to name him the starter upon his Week 4 return. From a fantasy perspective, Jacquizz Rodgers is the favorite to emerge as the starter while Martin is out, with Charles Sims working as the team's primary receiver out of the backfield. If Rodgers struggles, I'd fully expect Martin to start, but if he shines, Martin could be in trouble as Tampa could roll with the hot hand, which negatively impacts his fantasy value.
