Bucs, Doug Martin talking deal

NFL.com - [Full Article]

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' backfield of Doug Martin and Charles Sims has flown under the radar as the best tandem in the NFL this season.

Martin sits No. 2 in the NFL in rushing yards with 1,354 on 273 carries. With a big game Sunday versus the Carolina Panthers, Martin could leap Adrian Peterson to become the first Bucs player ever to lead the league in rushing. Sims is an underrated dual-threat back, compiling 1,001 yards from scrimmage (514 rushing, 487 receiving).

Martin, 26, is set to become a free agent this offseason, but the sides are already working on keeping the back in a Bucs jersey.

"We've already talked a little bit,'' general manager Jason Licht said, via the Tampa Tribune. "We will definitely be talking (more). We'd love to have Doug back.''

Fantasy Impact:

Last offseason, it looked like the Bucs might dump an ineffective Martin, but the 5-foot-9 pinballing runner bounced back in a big way, the story said. Martin has carried Tampa's offense for long stretches this season, taking some pressure off rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. This season was kind of an audition for Martin, who had struggled the past two seasons. But, Martin was getting positive reviews all the way back in the offseason.

Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16.

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (ankle, shoulder, probable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is probable for Week 16. The probable tag indicates that Peterson is fine to carry his usual workload, though the Vikings may rest him in the case that the game is meaningless. If the Packers lose to the Cardinals earlier in the day, the game will have no direct playoff implications. Arizona is favored by 4.5 points. Jerick McKinnon seems like the most likely candidate to pick up most of Peterson’s touches if he were to sit, though Matt Asiata would have a role in the passing game and in the red zone.
