Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson said running back Doug Martin “jumped out” in camp with his quickness and ability to pick up the offense.
We've heard this story before, but Martin has been good once every three years, and averaged under three yards per carry for the last two, so maybe the trend will continue. Marshawn Lynch was solid last year for the Raiders, but it is clear he cannot handle the same kind of workload he had in Seattle. There is a chance for Martin to carve out a sizable role here, but it is fair to question just how much fantasy value that would have. Oakland was just 19th in total PPR points at the running back position in 2017.
