2016 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Aug-12-2016 by Shawn Childs


After two down years in 2013 and 2014 due to injuries, Martin rebounded with a strong year in 2015. He ended up with 1673 combined yards with seven TDs and 33 catches to rank 6th at the RB position in PPR leagues. Doug averaged an impressive 4.9 yards per rush and 8.2 yards per catch. Martin finished with 14 runs of 20 yards or more and four rushes for 40 yards or longer. He had three games with over 100 yards and one game with 200+ yards. Doug had nine games with 20 touches or more while averaging 19.4 touches per game. He had his success even in a split role as Charles Sims had 158 touches as well. Even with a high volume opportunity, Martin has limited upside in TDs and catches with Winston and Sims vulturing a piece of each part of the winning puzzle. I really don't like his offensive line, and I see some regression in talent in 2016. I'll lower his bar to about 1500 combined yards with a slight bump in TDs and similar success in catches. This works out to about 225 Fantasy points in PPR leagues.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
3.12 Brandon Marianne - I didn?t want to take back-to-back Bucs, but Doug Martin was the best player available. He?ll lose touches to fellow RB Charles Sims, but Martin the the workhorse on a team that needs balance. And I got him at the end of the third.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
3.07 Scout Fantasy - Matt De Lima - Martin probably won't have another huge year like he did in 2015, however, the Bucs are a very balanced team that will lean on him consistently. You can't go wrong with a borderline bellcow RB that also possesses 25+ reception potential.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
3.10 So-Called Fantasy Experts - David Gonos - Just one of four RBs with at least 300 total touches last year, Dirk Koetter likes him some Doug Martin.
