Buccaneers RB Doug Martin had his best offseason in three years, and the upswing in his play could not have come at a better time. Charles Sims is good enough to start and he’ll push Martin hard for the bell-cow role. But the Bucs are probably better with Martin in the lead, Sims filling a third-down pass catcher’s role and Bobby Rainey backing up both.
The coaching staff reportedly loves Charles Sims, but OC Dirk Koetter fought to keep Martin with the team during the offseason, and he still sits atop the team's depth chart after a strong offseason. He's going in the 8th or 9th round, so he's a good target for those owners who are looking for potential starters in the later rounds.

Doug Martin - Week 17 vs. New Orleans
Doug Martin had a dreadful performance last week against Green Bay. He ran the ball 10 times and only managed 17 yards. Aside from a 63-yard run in Week 15, we haven't seen a whole lot out of Martin this season. If you take away that long run, Martin is averaging just 2.8 yards per carry on the year. He's also not a big factor in the passing game. He hasn't caught more than one pass in a game since Week 8.
Martin gets a favorable matchup this week against the Saints, but we wouldn't bet on a strong performance. He should be viewed as a RB3.
