Bucs RB Doug Martin prepared for an increased workload

Martin made his debut last week, playing on 26 of the team's 72 snaps—second-most at the RB position behind Charles Sims (32)—but he's ready to take on more work this week.

“I feel like I can handle anything coach asks me to do,’’ Martin said. “I’m prepared to do everything.’’

While Martin was second in snaps to Sims last week, he led the team in carries (13) and rushing yards (74). He also scored a touchdown—something he didn't do much of last season, scoring only 3 TDs in eight games. It's good to hear Martin is ready for more work as fantasy owners could use another reliable option at RB each week. In a somewhat difficult matchup versus Arizona this week, according to our aFPA metric, we have Martin ranked as our No. 15 RB in standard leagues.
