Martin rushed 20 times for 51 yards and failed to bring in either of his targets in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.
After logging a season-low eight rushes in the Week 9 loss to the Saints, Martin was back to a much more normal workload Sunday. However, he found running room very hard to come by, leading to his third game with less than 3.0 yards per carry over the last four contests. Martin appears to be running with good burst, so a substantial part of his struggles could likely be laid at the feet of his offensive line. He'll have a chance to get his numbers up against the Dolphins in a Week 11 road tilt.
Martin rushed eight times for seven yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints.
Like the rest of his offensive teammates, Martin was woefully ineffective, and he ultimately ceded plenty of work to Peyton Barber. The Buccaneers' sizable second-half deficit also played a part in Martin's season-low amount of carries, but the fact that he was eventually supplanted by Barber may portend some forthcoming changes in the backfield pecking order. Prior to Sunday's washout, Martin had averaged no better than 3.9 yards per carry in his prior three games and hadn't scored since Week 2. It remains to be seen if Koetter will opt to split the running back touches more evenly in a Week 10 home battle versus the Jets, but Martin's fantasy prospects look fairly bleak in the immediate wake of the blowout defeat.
Martin rushed 18 times for 71 yards and added a four-yard catch on two targets in Sunday's 17-3 loss to Carolina.
Martin finished three yards short of his season best on the ground, which was a decent effort considering quarterback Jameis Winston and the passing game couldn't get anything going. Jacquizz Rodgers had just one carry and one catch, so Martin continues to serve as the clear-cut No. 1 running back in Tampa Bay regardless of game flow.
Martin rushed 20 times for 49 yards and brought in two of three targets for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Bills.
Martin logged a season high in carries but produced a season low in rushing yards against a stingy Bills front seven. The 28-year-old also posted his best reception and receiving-yardage marks over his first three contests. With backfield mates Jacquizz Rodgers and Charles Sims combining for just three rushes, Martin continues to serve as the undisputed lead back for head coach Dirk Koetter. The former Pro Bowler will look to ramp up his overall rushing production when the Buccaneers face off with the Panthers in a Week 8 divisional showdown.
Martin rushed 14 times for 53 yards and a touchdown and brought in one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 38-33 loss to the Cardinals. He also logged a two-point-conversion rush.
Although Martin proclaimed himself ready for more work after logging 13 carries in his Week 5 debut against the Patriots, the opportunity escaped him Sunday due to the sizable deficit the Bucs find themselves in. Martin was solid with the touches he did garner and recorded his second touchdown in as many games when he went into the end zone from one yard out with 3:02 remaining in the game. The sixth-year pro could see a more sizable role in Week 7 versus a tough Bills defense, especially if Jameis Winston (shoulder) is unable to suit up for the contest.
