Bucs believe Doug Martin is 'way ahead' of the other running backs

Pat Yasinskas, ESPN - [Full Article]

Don't give up on running back Doug Martin, because the Bucs aren't going to. Although Martin has been ineffective, the coaches still think he's way ahead of the other running backs. The holes haven't been there for Martin to do very much, but coach Lovie Smith believes in a run-first offense. The Bucs are going to keep feeding the ball to Martin. Sooner or later, he's bound to break free, and that could happen against a struggling New Orleans defense.

Fantasy Impact: 

Martin is our #19 RB in standard formats and is one of the few backs in that range with an all but guaranteed workload.
