Bucs RB Doug Martin (concussion) expected to start in return

It appears the productive play of Peyton Barber last week in the absence of Doug Martin won't factor into the team's decisions as to who will start when Martin returns this week.

According to a tweet from Rick Stroud, Martin will resume his starting role as the team "doesn't believe in players losing their role as the result of an injury."

Fantasy Impact: 

Martin returning and resuming his role as the starting RB muddies up the position and will impact our rankings of Bucs RBs. We had Barber ranked the highest of the bunch before this Martin news. He is coming off a game where he ran the ball 23 times for 102 yards and caught 4 passes for 41 yards. Check back Sunday morning for an update to our rankings.
