    Oakland Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch will not be released despite the addition of RB Doug Martin.

    Huddle Up: Oakland's backfield is somewhat of a conundrum with Martin now. He and Lynch figure to be in on the first two downs with Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington splitting time on passing downs. Lynch remains the most valuable fantasy back, but his ceiling is obviously lowered with Martin. Don't draft Lynch as more than a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3.

  • Posted: 3/15/2018 11:27am ET

    Free-agent RB Doug Martin (Buccaneers) agreed to an undisclosed deal with the Oakland Raiders Thursday, March 15, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Marshawn Lynch should be able to hold off the oft-injured Martin for the starting job, but this move puts a damper on his fantasy value. Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington will maintain pass-catching duties, so Martin is no more than a flex in this scenario.

  • Posted: 2/20/2018 8:19am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was released Tuesday, Feb. 20. The Bucs will save $6.75 million. Due to the structure of his contract, the team will absorb no dead money on their salary cap.

    Huddle Up: Other than a resurgence in 2015, Martin has been a perennial fantasy disappointment after a monster rookie season. Those are the only two seasons he has managed to play at least 12 games. He's 29 and could be an interesting piece of a committee. Monitor where he lands for a potential RB3 grab.

  • Posted: 1/17/2018 11:21am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has 'no chance' of being on Tampa Bay's roster next season, in the opinion of the Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud.

    Huddle Up: Martin has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, playing in just 16 games over the last two seasons. His production lacked when he was playing, so there is merit to releasing Martin. At 29 years old, he may be over the football hill. Peyton Barber, Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers are more than capable of manning the Bucs' backfield.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 1:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed six times for seven yards in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers and he did not have any receptions or targets.

    Huddle Up: Martin was awful, outplayed by Peyton Barber badly. While Carolina's defense is rather stout, Barber was still able to average 3.9 yards per run to Martin's 1.2 yards per tote. His future in Tampa looks rather murky at the moment, as does his fantasy outlook.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 4:31pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been declared inactive for the team's Week 15 game because he violated team rules.

    Huddle Up: Martin was the starting running back earlier in the season but could lose the job if Peyton Barber plays well in Week 15. Owners in all leagues should probably avoid Martin for the final two games of the season if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 6:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin carried 10 times for 26 yards in the Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 24 yards on his three targets.

    Huddle Up: Martin was outgained 58-26 on the ground by Peyton Barber, who was tremendously effective on the ground when Martin was sidelined by injury the week before. It appears there is going to be a Tampa timeshare in the backfield and Martin might be on the short end.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 7:41am ET

    Confirming a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) will start Week 14's game against the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Martin was a full practice participant throughout the week and was not listed on the injury report. He should be viewed as a risky flex option this afternoon, especially given how well RB Peyton Barber played in his absence.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 3:16pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) was able to practice fully on Friday, Dec. 8, and he is off the injury report for Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Martin is expected to start in Week 14, and that's bad news for the fantasy outlook of Peyton Barber. Martin should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy option against the Lions.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 1:45pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and fully practiced Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Tampa Bay's backfield is a conundrum with Martin and Peyton Barber both vying for the starting job. Barber deserves to start again after a great fill-in job last week, plus Martin hasn't exactly done anything to write home about. The Muscle Hamster can't be started as more than a flex, and that might even be risky.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 2:51pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 6.

    Huddle Up: Martin cleared concussion protocol and it is a good sign he practiced in full and wasn't even limited. Peyton Barber was sharp last week in a fill-in role and he might have worked his way into a timeshare situation with Martin, but that's just speculation. Still, a timeshare situation wouldn't be good for the fantasy appeal of either.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 1:38pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) did not practice Friday, Dec. 1, and he has been ruled out for Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: The Bucs will use a three-headed backfield committee of Peyton Barber, Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims against a very stingy Packers rush defense.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 8:34am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) is out of practice Friday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Jacquizz Rodgers, Peyton Barber and Charles Sims would figure to split the work, which doesn't lend much fantasy upside against the Green Bay Packers. The Pack have allowed just 2.92 yards per rush to backs the last five weeks.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 2:48pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Martin needs to be cleared by doctors before he is allowed to play, so there is a chance that he misses at least one game. Jacquizz Rodgers and Peyton Barber probably would both see playing time if Martin is ruled out, but neither player is a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 1:10pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) rushed for 33 yards on seven carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Martin suffered a concussion during the game, so his status for Week 13 is uncertain at this point. Owners should monitor his practice participation during the week but probably can avoid Martin even if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 11:48am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin (concussion) left the team's Week 12 game early because of a concussion and will not return.

    Huddle Up: Martin will have to pass all of the concussion tests before he is cleared to play, so his status for Week 13 is uncertain. Jacquizz Rodgers probably will take over as the starter as long as Martin is sidelined and can be a flex option.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 5:32pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 19 times for just 38 yards in Week 11 against the Miami Dolphins and he had two grabs for six yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: It was a forgettable day for Martin, who had nowhere to go. Luckily for the offense it was Ryan Fitzpatrick to the rescue. He is averaging 2.0 yards per game, posting just 96 rushing yards over his past 47 attempts. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes right now heading into Week 12 against the Atlanta Falcons.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 5:00pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran eight times for just seven yards in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints and he did not have any catches.

    Huddle Up: Martin and the Buccaneers offense had a forgettable afternoon. They'll look for much better results in Week 10 against the visiting Jets.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:53pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed 18 times for 71 yards in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers and he added one reception for four yards on two targets.

    Huddle Up: Martin did pretty well against a stout Panthers rush defense. He'll look for much better results next week in New Orleans, and he could add more in the receiving game, too.

  • Posted: 10/27/2017 9:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin faces the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, and the Panthers haven't allowed more than 67 yards to a running back in any game this year.

    Huddle Up: Martin has seen his number of carries go up but his yards decrease in the three games he has played this year, and he draws a tough matchup this weekend. He is a low-upside flex play.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 6:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin ran 20 times for 49 yards and caught two passes for 31 yards in a 30-27 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Martin's season-high 20 carries yielded a season-low 49 yards. He faces another tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers in Week 8, which relegates him to the lower end of the RB2 spectrum.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 7:44pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin finished with 14 carries for 53 yards and a touchdown and one catch for 11 yards in a 38-33 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Martin has scored in both of his games since returning from suspension, and he is clearly the team's lead back. He should be no worse than a RB2 moving forward.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 9:04am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin admitted to wearing down after logging 26 snaps in his season debut in Week 5 but feels as though he is ready to go wire-to-wire in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if necessary. 'I feel like I can handle anything coach asks me to do. I?m prepared to do everything,' Martin said.

    Huddle Up: Head coach Dirk Koetter seemed hesitant at the thought of adding too much to Martin's workload when asked about it Thursday, suggesting 'he has no problem with any of his other backs' and giving Martin more work is something that will 'present itself.' Martin looked great in limited action in Week 5 and has certainly earned the right to be an every-week RB2 in fantasy, even in a difficult matchup against Arizona.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 8:46pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin made his season debut against the New England Patriots Thursday, Oct. 5, finishing with 74 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries and one catch for eight yards.

    Huddle Up: Martin wasted no time reclaiming the lead role in the backfield, and he dominated the touches. Pencil him in as a RB2 against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 11:10am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has a chance to have a significant role on offense against the New England Patriots in Week 5 because the team believes his return can spark the offense, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Dan Graziano.

    Huddle Up: Martin has missed the first three games because of a suspension and had limited practice time this week but should have a role against the Patriots. He should become the team's starting running back in the near future but it is not known how many touches he will receive this week. Owners can consider him a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 10/2/2017 12:21pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was activated from the Reserve/Suspended list Monday, Oct. 2.

    Huddle Up: Martin's role for Week 5 is uncertain since it will be his first game of the season and the team plays on Thursday Night Football. He may see limited work if he is active against the New England Patriots because he missed the first three games, which makes him a risky option. Martin should become the starting running back in the near future and can be a weekly starting option when that occurs.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 10:43am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers will most likely be the first- and second- down back, while Charles Sims will handle most of the third-down work and Peyton Barber will be the goal-line back while Doug Martin serves his season-opening three-game suspension, according to ESPN's Jenna Laine.

    Huddle Up: No real surprises here, although Laine points out Barber has improved quite a bit and may have been the most explosive back in camp behind Martin in the preseason. As things stand right now, expect Martin to handle the early-down and goal-line work upon his return, while Sims keeps his role and Rodgers becomes more of a handcuff.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 6:47am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will now be eligible to return from suspension in Week 5 after the team's Week 1 game was pushed to Week 11 due to Hurricane Irma.

    Huddle Up: He'll still miss three games and return against the New England Patriots Oct. 5. One drawback now is he won't have a bye week, and he has a checkered injury history. That has to limit his upside some, but there is little risk in having him as an RB3.

  • Posted: 9/2/2017 3:32pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list Saturday, Sept. 2.

    Huddle Up: Martin will miss the first three games for the suspension, so it is not known what role he will have in the offense when he returns. He could be a No. 2 running back if he becomes the main running back when he returns but could also be a No. 3 or flex option if he is a part of a committee.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 8:19pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin rushed for 30 yards and one touchdown on five carries in the preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Martin will miss the first three games of the regular season because of a suspension, so it is not known what his role will be when he returns. He has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he is the starter when he returns from his suspension.

  • Posted: 7/30/2017 10:00am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin will not be guaranteed his starting job in Week 4 when he completes the remainder of his three-game PED suspension, according to general manager Jason Licht. 'Look, he has done everything we've asked him to do, and he looks reminiscent of 2015 when he was playing for his contract. ? So he might be one of those guys that needs a carrot. And he's got a pretty big carrot in front of him right now, because there's no guarantees that he's going to be here. And he knows that. We've talked to him, and he's good with it,' Licht said.

    Huddle Up: It's tough talk from Licht, but what he should do as a general manager. Jacquizz Rodgers would have to drop some jaws and stay healthy in order for Martin to be in any real danger of losing his early-down gig. Owners with an eye toward rolling the dice on Martin should hope for more reports like this, as it could make him cheaper on draft day. For now, consider Martin a high-end RB3 with the potential to be a low-end RB1 upon his return.

  • Posted: 7/30/2017 9:17am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin told ESPN's Jenna Laine he trimmed off about two percent body fat this offseason with high intensity training and by cutting out carbs.

    Huddle Up: Martin has yet to draw a single negative comment this offseason and has consistently been the focus of admiration of teammates and front office personnel alike. While he will miss the first three weeks of the regular season as he wraps up his PED suspension from late in 2016, he figures to reclaim his starting job upon return and could easily be a high-end RB2. Owners are advised to take the plunge if he falls near the sixth-round area or later in drafts this summer.

  • Posted: 7/28/2017 12:52pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Jacquizz Rodgers is being counted on to 'step up' for the first three games of the season while Doug Martin serves the remainder of his PED suspension from last season, according to ESPN.com's Jenna Laine.

    Huddle Up: Rodgers, who reportedly dropped about seven pounds in the offseason, showed well when called upon in 2016. Owners looking to handcuff Martin should be looking initially at Rodgers, but his role beyond Week 3 is unclear. Still, he figures to be a popular DFS option early on and a solid play for zero-RB advocates in September.

  • Posted: 6/16/2017 9:12am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin is receiving a ton of offseason praise from a number of sources, not the least of which is general manager Jason Licht. '(Martin) looks lean, he looks like he's finishing his runs - obviously, there is no contact in the spring - but it looks like he's finishing his runs. He looks like he's got that burst. ... He looks like the Doug Martin of 2015,' Licht told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

    Huddle Up: It's important to remember Martin will miss the first three games due to suspension and doesn't boast the best track record when it comes to staying healthy. While it is entirely possible he can return to being a fantasy RB1, those two factors alone make him a risky bet and someone owners should not be trying to move up draft boards just because he is looking good in non-padded practices.

  • Posted: 6/14/2017 9:10am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin looks quicker and bulkier than he did only two or three weeks ago, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Thought to be a cut candidate earlier this spring, Martin appears primed to enjoy a bounce-back year once he is able to return from his season-opening three-game suspension. Jacquizz Rodgers, Charles Sims and rookie Jeremy McNichols figure to pick up the slack in his absence. Once Martin returns, he could easily be an upside RB2 in what should be a very good offense.

  • Posted: 5/23/2017 8:56am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been working with the first-team offense in organized team activities Tuesday, May 23.

    Huddle Up: Martin still has three games to serve on his suspension, but the reports have been glowing on him this offseason. Of course, it could be smoke and mirrors in an attempt to trade him, but he could be a bounce-back RB3 candidate in fantasy.

  • Posted: 5/4/2017 2:14pm ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin suffered minor cuts and bruises as a result of a car accident Thursday, May 4, according to a report from the Tampa Police Department.

    Huddle Up: Martin has plenty of traffic to maneuver through in his own backfield, too. Charles Sims and Jacquizz Rodgers will stint Martin's receiving game and take away some of his carries. Injuries forced Martin missed eight games last year, paving the way for Sims and then Rodgers to earn more playing time. Given the crowded backfield and the fact that he has only played a full season in two of his five years, Martin is merely a flex consideration.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 5:20am ET

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin has been the most impressive player in training thus far, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers passed on RB Dalvin Cook in the first round, in part, because of this, according to the source. Martin still has a ways to go before he can make a comfortable RB2, and he still has three games left to serve on his suspension. He'd be a good RB3 in fantasy.
