There has been a whole lot of ugly in Martin's game over the last two years after he flashed stud upside in his 2012 rookie campaign (1,926 yards, 49 receptions and 12 TDs). Over the last two years, Doug has averaged only 3.6 yards per rush and 5.2 yards per catch. He missed the last 10 games of 2013 with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Martin suffered a knee injury in week one of the 2014 season after rushing for only nine yards on nine carries. When he returned in week five, Doug was unimpressive over his next four games (207 combined yards on 53 touches). An ankle injury led to three more games on the sideline. Martin did show a spark in two of his last three games (14/96 and one TD and 19/108 and one TD). He only had 20 targets on the year, which resulted in 13 catches for 64 yards. Doug has had one elite season and his lack of success over the last two years has been in a large part due to injuries. Martin was motivated to get in the 'best shape of his career' during the offseason. He'll have more competition for playing time this season with the talented RB Charles Sims healthy. Martin's ADP is 124 in the early draft season as the 39th RB off the table. I've lost a ton of money on him over the last two years so he's a tough buy. However, his price is more than fair if the training camp news continues on an upward trend. With two-thirds of the RB playing time for the Bucs, Martin has a chance to finish with 1,100 total yards, plus he should lead Tampa in rushing TDs. A RB3 seems about right, with possible upside due to a favorable run schedule and improved QB play.

2.11 DLF - I fully expect Martin to bounce back in a great way. His time may be eroded some by Sims but overall I feel he's a solid value here.
