Bucs want to give Doug Martin enough rest

Tampa Bay Times - [Full Article]

Buccaneers HC Lovie Smith discussed RB Doug Martin...

"He's our starting tailback," Smith said. "He's on most of the billboards around here. He's an All-Pro running back. There is nothing to dislike about Doug Martin. At the same time, we want Doug around here for many years. You need to have some other guys. He can't carry it every second.''

Fantasy Impact: 

It sounds as if Smith wants to be able to spell Martin. The Bucs are pretty deep at RB with Mike James, Bobby Rainey and draft pick Charles Sims. Martin is still primed for a big role in what should be a bounce back season.
