2018 Fantasy Outlook
Martinez's rookie-year numbers (69 tackles in 13 games) didn't scream of an imminent breakout, but a closer look reveals a few hints at least. He posted those 69 tackles with just 438 defensive snaps, so that he eclipsed 144 tackles last year on 982 snaps was fairly warned. It's a reminder of how opportunity is the greatest currency in fantasy – you probably didn't put money on Martinez hitting 140 tackles last year, but you might have if you were given a guarantee that his snaps would more than double. Now an established three-down player, Martinez should be locked in. Read Past Outlooks

Finishes second in combined tackles

December 31, 2018
Martinez had 12 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Lions.
ANALYSIS
Martinez posted double-digit tackles for the seventh time this season and matched the 144 combined tackles he notched in 2017, a mark that landed him second in the league after tying for first a year ago. Martinez did not record an interception in 2018, but he did tally a career-best five sacks and played in all 16 games. Given his production and health over the last two years, Martinez will be one of the top options in leagues that use IDPs in 2019.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
A fourth-round pick out of Stanford last year, Martinez proved a quick study as a rookie, arguably establishing himself as the team's top inside linebacker almost out of the gate. Despite missing three games with an MCL sprain, Martinez accumulated 69 stops while playing just 438 defensive snaps. Some of his tackles were made on his 133 special teams snaps, but he should still reach triple-digit tackles if he plays 900 defensive snaps in 2017. It's difficult to identify any competition at linebacker in Green Bay to block him from that outcome.
A fourth-round pick in this year's draft, Martinez has drawn rave reviews over the course of the offseason and has seen extensive work with Green Bay's starting unit in each of the team's base, nickel and dime defenses. Most significant is the rookie's deployment in dime packages, as he is the lone inside linebacker on the field in such a scenario. The latter may suggest that Martinez has a leg up on his competition, that being Jake Ryan and the injury-prone Sam Barrington, but, at press time, neither inside linebacker role has been claimed. However, should Martinez win out, he could very well pose as a sneaky IDP option in 2016 if can remain the team's preferred option at ILB in both pass and run scenarios.
