Week 8 vs. Carolina Panthers
As expected, Doug Martin struggled last week in a tough matchup. He ran the ball 20 times, but only finished with 49 yards. He did add 31 yards on 2 catches, though. While he didn't play well, the fact he saw a season-high 20 carries is promising for fantasy owners. It means the Bucs feel he's ready to take over as the lead back.
Unfortunately, he's likely to struggle this week in a tough matchup against the Panthers. Carolina has only allowed one 100-yard game this season, and just three scores in seven games. Carolina is also allowing the sixth-fewest yards per carry in the league.
We still like Martin has a low-end RB1, but there's a good chance his numbers aren't great this week.
