Doug Martin still searching for breakout game
by Chris Towers |

Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is looking for his first big game of the season, but it is not clear if that is coming in Week 5 against the Saints.

New Orleans' defense has struggled against running backs this season, allowing 21.5 Fantasy points per game through four contests. However, this might be a game where the Buccaneers have to abandon the run early, since the Saints' offense tends to be unstoppable at home. Opponents rushed for just 93.78 yards per game against the Saints in the Superdome last season, compared to 129 on the road.

Martin's role might just depend on how the game goes this Sunday. If the Buccaneers can keep it close, he could put together a solid performance, as he did in Week 3 a year ago, when he rushed for 144 yards against the Saints.

Consider him more of a No. 2 back this week, with both Dave Richard and Jamey Eisenberg ranking him toward the bottom of the top 20

Doug Martin doesn't give Bobby Rainey a chance
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In his return from a knee injury Week 4 at Pittsburgh, Buccaneers running back Doug Martin led the way with 14 carries. The second-most went to the player who thrived in his absence, Bobby Rainey. He got only four.

That's mostly good news in Fantasy, but for the Rainey owners, perhaps it isn't. Certainly, you'd rather see one of the two backs carry the load rather than another timeshare, but maybe Martin isn't the one to do it. He scored a touchdown, sure, but he gained only 40 yards on those 14 carries, giving him 2.1 yards per carry on the year.

Rainey, by comparison, is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. True, he owes much of that to the 144 yards he had on 22 carries against the Rams in Week 2, but despite the two early fumbles Week 3 at Atlanta, he still finished with 105 total yards in that game, 64 on the receiving end.

Ideally, if you own Martin, you own Rainey and vice versa. Whichever gets the carries looks like he'll get the vast majority of them. But I still have some doubts as to which running back will emerge in the long run.

Doug Martin pitches in with TD and little more in Sunday win
by Marty Gitlin |

Buccaneers featured back Doug Martin played little role in a shocking victory over host Pittsburgh on Sunday despite a 3-yard touchdown run three minutes into the third quarter.

Martin finished with just 40 yards on 14 carries and added two catches for 16 yards. He ran like a guy coming off a knee injury that prevented him from playing the previous two weeks. Oddly, he managed exactly seven carries for 20 yards in both halves. He will attempt to contribute more next Sunday against the host Saints.

Two premier skill position players have been deemed probable by the Buccaneers for their Sunday game in Pittsburgh. Both wide receiver Vincent Jackson (wrist) and featured back Doug Martin (knee) appear all but set to play.
