Martin has rid himself of some body fat in the offseason, the Buccaneers' official site reports. "What you're not seeing that makes me look a little slimmer is my body fat," he said. "I got my body fat down by like four or five percent so I'm in great shape. I feel good and I'm ready to go."

Doug Martin: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

The Bucs have elected not to pick up the fifth-year option on Martin's contract, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

As a result, Martin -- who carried 134 times for 494 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games in 2014 -- is slated to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2015 season, in the event that he doesn't sign an extension with the Bucs in the coming months. Heading into the coming campaign, the report suggests that Martin is likely to compete with Charles Sims for the Bucs' starting RB job, with Bobby Rainey and Mike James set to reprise their backup roles. Assuming he can re-prove his health, though, Martin has a solid shot to enter the season as the team's top early-down back, but at a minimum, Sims' pass-catching ability should earn him change-of-pace work and perhaps more, should he impress this summer.

Martin (ankle) is active for Sunday’s game against Chicago.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin will get his first taste of action since Week 8, as the back has missed three straight contests due to an ankle ailment. He returned to the practice field Thursday, and even took many of the first-team reps in Friday’s session. Martin is unlikely to be immediately thrusted into the starting role, however, as the most likely scenario is that he’ll be part of a committee involving Bobby Rainey and Charles Sims (ankle). For that reason, Martin becomes a bit of a risky fantasy play, until more concrete information is known about the carry distribution in Tampa Bay.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com expects Martin (ankle) to play Sunday against the Bears.

Martin (ankle) received many of the reps with the first team during drills this week, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Martin is officially questionable to play Sunday against Chicago but the expectation is that he will return following a three-game absence. Rookie Charles Sims saw 13 carries last week to Bobby Rainey's four, and while Martin may eat significantly into the backfield work in his first game back, Sims figures to remain the top pass-catching option at the position.

2015

2014

A shoulder injury suffered in last year's Week 7 game against Atlanta ended up knocking Martin out for the season and throwing the Bucs' running game into a state of chaos, but the injury is all cleared up now and Martin is set to resume the featured role that he rode to 1,926 total yards in 2012. At 5-9 and 223, Martin's a tackle-breaking machine (41 in '12) with serious big-play ability and receiving skills to boot. Although the injury was the main culprit for last year's disappointment, it's worth noting that Martin's production was down when he was healthy too. He had two clunkers among his five full games, scored just one touchdown and saw his rate stats drop significantly. His YPC fell from 4.6 to 3.6, his receiving average fell from a sparkling 9.6 yards per reception to just 5.5, and he broke only six tackles. Of course, that's a small sample, and the two bad games came against the NFL's No. 1 and No. 3 run defenses. After carrying 55 times in the red zone and 16 times at the goal line in 2012, Martin saw those numbers dip to seven and zero in 2013 – largely due to last year's wholly unproductive early-season Tampa offense. He'll presumably see most of the work in tight this year. Bobby Rainey, Mike James and third-round pick Charles Sims will vie for backup duties, but won't take many carries from Martin. Sims could eventually steal some pass targets from Martin, but not until he returns from an ankle injury. The rebuilt Bucs offense should benefit Martin. Josh McCown's been brought in as the presumptive starter at QB for Tampa, while Carl Nicks is set to return to the offensive line after missing most of last season and Logan Mankins having been added. Star receiver Vincent Jackson and first-round draftee Mike Evans should keep opposing defenses from keying on the run game, leaving Martin loose to create havoc on the ground and through the air once again.

2013

The 31st pick in the 2012 draft, Martin earned the starting job out of camp last year and quickly became the Bucs' workhorse in a standout rookie season. He ranked fourth in the league with 319 rushes, tied for second among feature backs with 70 targets and took 83.3 percent of his team's handoffs in the red zone, second only to Arian Foster. All of which led to nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage (2nd) and 12 total touchdowns (4th). At 5-9, 223, Martin has a low center of gravity and boasts a blend of power and exceptional balance that helped him total 800 yards after contact last season, more than any back other than Adrian Peterson. He also has big-play ability as touchdowns of 36, 40, 45, 64, 67 and 70 yards attest. Despite 16 rushes inside the five-yard line last year (3rd), Martin converted only five, but this season he should benefit from the return of Pro Bowl guards Davin Joseph and Carl Nicks – arguably the game's top run blocker – who were lost to injury in 2012.

2012

The Buccaneers used their first-round pick to draft Martin, who totaled 1,554 yards with 18 touchdowns during his final season at Boise State. At 5-9, 219, he offers big-play ability but is also considered a complete back, capable as a receiver and in pass protection. LeGarrette Blount struggles badly in those latter two areas, so expect the rookie to start immediately, especially since the new regime traded up to select Martin and has zero ties to Blount. Tampa Bay has a bad offensive line and scored the sixth-fewest points per game last season, so other than the clear path to playing time, it’s hardly an ideal situation. Still, Josh Freeman is capable of bouncing back, the team added Vincent Jackson through free agency, and new coach Greg Schiano’s offense was extremely run-heavy at Rutgers. Martin should make a major impact right away.
