Martin caught his lone target for eight yards and did not record a carry in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Seahawks. Martin has logged no more than seven offensive snaps in three consecutive games as the 1-5 Raiders continue to struggle heading into their bye. With Oakland trailing for much of the contest against Seattle, Martin was kept to the sideline as fellow backup Jalen Richard played a role in the passing game en route to seven receptions for 48 yards on eight targets. The Raiders' backfield accounted for just 48 rushing yards on 15 attempts, though quarterback Derek Carr (arm) added 31 yards on four carries of his own.
Martin rushed for one yard on two carries and failed to secure his lone target in Sunday's 26-10 loss to the Chargers. Martin was generally uninvolved Week 5 as the Raiders played from behind for most of the contest, while starter Marshawn Lynch logged only nine carries of his own. Oakland failed to get anything going on the ground as they rushed for 41 yards on 13 carries as a team, though fellow backup Jalen Richard hauled in a team-high six passes. Martin's usage figures to remain limited heading into a Week 6 matchup against the Seahawks.
Martin rushed for 11 yards on five carries in Sunday's 45-42 overtime win over the Browns. Martin averaged just 2.2 yards per carry while starter Marshawn Lynch led Oakland's backfield with 130 rushing yards on 20 carries. Martin also was overshadowed by both Lynch and Jalen Richard in the passing game, as the latter duo combined for six receptions and 65 yards on 10 targets. Martin's general lack of involvement was related to the high-scoring nature of the contest as quarterback Derek Carr attempted 58 passes.
Martin rushed for 24 yards on seven carries and caught his lone target for no gain in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Broncos. Martin has now logged 14 total touches through two weeks despite a limited snap count, serving as Marshawn Lynch's handcuff out of the Raiders backfield. Martin was deployed for 17 offensive snaps compared to just eight for fellow reserve running back Jalen Richard, whose lack of usage stemmed from Oakland leading the entire game before a last-second field goal by Denver. Expect a similar role for Martin again Week 3 against the Dolphins as Lynch remains healthy.
Martin rushed for 20 yards on four carries and caught two passes on as many targets for a loss of three yards in Monday's loss to the Rams. Martin accounted for eight less touches than fellow backup running back Jalen Richard, who was heavily involved in the Raiders' aerial attack as he saw 11 targets from quarterback Derek Carr to go along with five carries. Marshawn Lynch led the backfield with 11 carries for 41 yards and a score, so Martin's fantasy value is still restrained to deeper leagues heading into a Week 2 matchup against the Broncos. Martin logged just 10 offensive snaps out of a possible 74 to open the season, compared to 37 for Richard and 27 for Lynch.
