Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday. Martin will miss another week or two. Charles Sims is a Sneaky Start against the Broncos, who are allowing 4.7 YPC on the season.

Week 1 at Arizona
Doug Martin had a role on the ground, and in the passing game, en route to a 96-yard day. He didn't have a touchdown, but that yardage total is nothing to laugh at. It's encouraging to see 34 of his yards come on five receptions, as Martin wasn't used much as a receiver last season.
The Bucs back may not have the same success this week, though as he'll be going against a tough Cardinals defense. Still, Martin will get his touches (he had 18 carries in Week 1) so he's still a solid start. He should be viewed as a RB2 play.
