Buccaneers run game can't get going against the Packers in loss
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Buccaneers running game managed just 16 yards on 14 carries for Tampa Bay in the 20-3 loss to the Packers. Just a week after rushing for 96 yards, Doug Martin had 10 carries for 17 yards. Backup Charles Sims had four carries for -1 yards. 

Sims added three catches for 30 yards. 

The Buccaneers will finish their season in Week 17 against the Saints.

Don't let long Doug Martin run fool you
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

What's that? Buccaneers running back Doug Martin ran for 96 yards on 14 carries Week 15 at Carolina. Sweet Moses, he's back!

Whoa now, slow your roll. More than two-thirds of those yards came on a 63-yard run on his second carry of the game. On the other 13, he averaged just 2.5 yards.

Now obviously, some running backs rely on long runs to bring up their yards per carry, so isolating those runs under the assumption they're some sort of fluke isn't the fairest way to assess a rusher's performance. But long runs aren't the norm for Martin. That 63-yarder was his first of 20-plus all season.

This performance was similar to the 58-yard game he had Week 13 against Cincinnati. He seemed like he was poised for a big numbers when he gained 46 yards on his first 10 carries, but it was largely skewed by a 10-yard run he had early on. He had just 18 yards on eight carries the rest of the way.

By now, Fantasy owners should have a pretty good idea who Martin is, and it's not someone they should be looking to start in a 12-team league.

Martin added one catch for 3 yards. His previous season best was 58 rushing yards in Week 13. The Bucs are back in action Week 16 vs. Green Bay.

Doug Martin shows he's still the lead guy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though he also led the team in rushing in his return from an ankle injury Week 12 at Chicago, gaining 27 yards on 11 carries isn't any sort of statement. So Doug Martin made sure to leave no room for doubt Week 13 against Cincinnati. He had 18 carries to Charles Sims' five and Bobby Rainey's one and wasn't all that terrible with them, picking up 58 yards and a touchdown.

His numbers would have looked better if he didn't have just 3 yards on six carries in the second half. He got off to a great start, even showing the burst that made him a Fantasy stud two years ago on his 7-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter, but faded from there.

Ultimately, his claim to the starting role is bad news in Fantasy. He hasn't offered anything close to stud production in the two years since his rookie season, and the Buccaneers' insistence on sticking with him only blocks two potentially more useful options in Sims and Rainey.

If you're going to start a Buccaneers running back Week 14 at Detroit, it should be Martin, but you're better off not starting any of them.
