Bucs decline fifth-year option on RB Doug Martin
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/4/15) The Buccaneers will not pick up the fifth-year option on running back Doug Martin, meaning he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016, per the Tampa Tribune.
Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012, but since then has battled injury and ineffectiveness, falling short of 500 yards in each of the last two seasons.
Martin remains in line to be Tampa Bay's No. 1 rusher at the start of 2015, but he will have to prove himself in order to be rewarded with a new contract.
Buccaneers RB Martin ends year on high note
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) The Buccaneers lost their sixth straight game Sunday against the Saints, but don't blame featured back Doug Martin, who finished the year strong.
Martin rushed for a season-high 108 yards - his second game of 96 or more in the last three - on 19 attempts. Among his carries was a 45-yard jaunt in which he showed a fine combination of deception and power.
Buccaneers run game can't get going against the Packers in loss
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) The Buccaneers running game managed just 16 yards on 14 carries for Tampa Bay in the 20-3 loss to the Packers. Just a week after rushing for 96 yards, Doug Martin had 10 carries for 17 yards. Backup Charles Sims had four carries for -1 yards.
Sims added three catches for 30 yards.
The Buccaneers will finish their season in Week 17 against the Saints.
Don't let long Doug Martin run fool you
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/14/14) What's that? Buccaneers running back Doug Martin ran for 96 yards on 14 carries Week 15 at Carolina. Sweet Moses, he's back!
Whoa now, slow your roll. More than two-thirds of those yards came on a 63-yard run on his second carry of the game. On the other 13, he averaged just 2.5 yards.
Now obviously, some running backs rely on long runs to bring up their yards per carry, so isolating those runs under the assumption they're some sort of fluke isn't the fairest way to assess a rusher's performance. But long runs aren't the norm for Martin. That 63-yarder was his first of 20-plus all season.
This performance was similar to the 58-yard game he had Week 13 against Cincinnati. He seemed like he was poised for a big numbers when he gained 46 yards on his first 10 carries, but it was largely skewed by a 10-yard run he had early on. He had just 18 yards on eight carries the rest of the way.
By now, Fantasy owners should have a pretty good idea who Martin is, and it's not someone they should be looking to start in a 12-team league.
Bucs RB Doug Martin rushes for 96 yards in Week 15 loss
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Buccaneers running back Doug Martin rushed for a season-best 96 yards on 14 carries during a 19-17 loss Week 15 at Carolina. Most of Martin's yards came on a 63-yard run on the team's second play of the game.
Martin added one catch for 3 yards. His previous season best was 58 rushing yards in Week 13. The Bucs are back in action Week 16 vs. Green Bay.
|We're coming up on a pretty big season for Doug Martin. The fourth-year rusher is entering a contract year, meaning that if he puts up big numbers this year he can cash in with a new deal. But we haven't seen big numbers from him since his rookie year in 2012. The hunch is that Martin will remain Tampa Bay's starter to begin the season, but he will lose playing time to Charles Sims, among others. After finishing outside of the Top 50 running backs in standard leagues last season, owners will be nervous to add Martin. But because he's a running back, expect someone to go for him just before or in Round 6 in standard and PPR leagues. Sims might be the better Draft-Day bargain.
