The Buccaneers closed out Sunday’s 28-21 win over the Chargers with running back Doug Martin on the bench, but it doesn’t look like the veteran is going to be out for another extended period.
He said after the game, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, that he was “bent back” before heading for the sideline and that he expects to be fine.
The Bucs got Jacquizz Rodgers back this week. Martin missed six games with a hamstring injury this year which allowed Rodgers to make a fantasy impact. In Week 13, Rodgers made a big catch on the game-winning touchdown drive and then ran the clock out on the next Tampa possession. Rodgers may be worth owning for Martin owners.

Week 13 vs. San Diego
Doug Martin is the clear bell cow in Tampa Bay, as he's had 24 carries and 23 carries in his last two games, respectively. He's not lighting the world on fire, as he's averaging just three yards per run, but the volume is hard to ignore.
He'll look to try and improve on his season this week in a favorable matchup against the Chargers. San Diego has allowed 15 total touchdowns to running backs this season, which ties for the second-highest.
Martin may not finish in the top five this week, but his touches alone make him a low-end RB1 play.
