Bucs decline fifth-year option on RB Doug Martin
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Buccaneers will not pick up the fifth-year option on running back Doug Martin, meaning he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2016, per the Tampa Tribune. 

Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012, but since then has battled injury and ineffectiveness, falling short of 500 yards in each of the last two seasons. 

Martin remains in line to be Tampa Bay's No. 1 rusher at the start of 2015, but he will have to prove himself in order to be rewarded with a new contract.

Buccaneers RB Martin ends year on high note
by Marty Gitlin |

The Buccaneers lost their sixth straight game Sunday against the Saints, but don't blame featured back Doug Martin, who finished the year strong.

Martin rushed for a season-high 108 yards - his second game of 96 or more in the last three - on 19 attempts. Among his carries was a 45-yard jaunt in which he showed a fine combination of deception and power.

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.
