Keshawn Martin, along with DeVier Posey and Mike Thomas, have been competing all summer for the slot receiving spot in Houston. Despite reports that Thomas took the early lead, Martin was back in contention by the end of August. While his role as a receiver remains a bit cloudy, Martin will be the Texans' kick and punt returner this season. New HC Bill O'Brien met with Martin after organized team activities (OTAs) back in April to go over the ways in which he wanted to see him improve. Martin had plenty of struggles in both the return game and as a receiver last season, and had to fight his way onto the roster. By midway through training camp, Martin had clearly moved himself off the bubble and into the mix at wideout.
Is essentially a bottom-feeder in a passing attack with very high-end frontline players.
Investing draft capital on players with fringe roles is reserved for the deepest of redraft leagues and Dynasty players. Martin falls into that category.
