Martinez had six solo tackles in Sunday's victory over the Bears.
Martinez did not pile up tackles like some of his linebacker counterparts in Week 1, but he posted just nine combined tackles over two games against the Bears a year ago, so the outuput is not all that surprising. Martinez could have a chance to bounce back right away in Week 2 against the Vikings, as he recorded 22 tackles over two games last year against Minnesota.
Martinez had four tackles (three solo) in Thursday's preseason game.
Martinez has not encountered any setbacks this preseason while making seven stops (four solo) over two games. He will garner plenty of interest in leagues that use IDPs after tying for the league lead in 2017 with 144 combined tackles.
Martinez finished the 2017 season with 144 combined tackles, a total that tied him with two other players for the league lead.
Martinez took a huge leap in his second year, becoming the Packers' top middle linebacker and increasing his tackle total by 75. He had just one sack and one interception, but he provided a big boost for fantasy owners in leagues where tackles by individual defensive players were key. Following his big season Martinez will remain the Packers' top middle linebacker heading into 2018, and with him turning just 24 in January, he will be a good bet to pile up numbers in the tackle department once again.
Martinez had 11 tackles (six solo) in Saturday's 16-0 loss to the Vikings.
Martinez broke into double digit tackles once again and now has sole possession of the league lead for tackles with 138 (92 solo) this season. The 23-year-old played every defensive snap once again, and still managed to rack up the tackles even with fellow inside linebacker Jake Ryan also making 11 combined tackles.
Martinez totaled eight tackles (four solo) and deflected a pass in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.
Martinez finished with single-digit tackles for the fourth time in six games, but unless Atlanta's Deion Jones records 19 tackles in the Week 15 finale, he will head into Week 16 tied for the league lead with 127 combined tackles.
