Bucs RB Doug Martin believes he was benched for fumble

ESPN - [Full Article]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin believes he was benched after fumbling on a key play at the Lions' 23-yard line during a 24-21 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

"When you turn the ball over and you fumble, your chances get cut pretty short, so that’s what happened there," said Martin, who started the game and had 10 touches in the first half, including a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Martin fumbled on a play where he was against nine men in the box and also had a teammate fall on him. He didn't get a touch the entire second half after the fumble. Meanwhile, Barber had just three touches in the first half followed by nine in the second half. Barber was coming off a 100-yard game last week and owners were hoping he'd be more involved even with Martin back after injury. Going forward, this RB situation certainly appears cloudy.

Scouting Report

Week 14 vs. Detroit Lions

With Doug Martin out last week, Peyton Barber took over with a strong 102-yard game on 23 carries. He also led the team in receiving with 41 yards on 4 catches.

Barber showed a lot more in that game than Martin has so far this season, so even though the veteran is healthy and should return this week, his status is a little unclear. We're expecting Barber to be the main carrier again, although that can change once Sunday comes.

If Barber does start, he'll get a favorable matchup against the Lions. Detroit has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing backs this season and has struggled to stop recent opponents. The Lions have allowed 100+ rushing yards to backs in four straight games. In addition, a back has scored a TD against Detroit in every game but one this season. Assuming Barber starts, he'll be a decent RB2 this week.
