Injury Knee
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Martin has increasingly become a relied-upon defensive force as his career has progressed, starting in 53.1 percent of his team's games (split between Cardinals and Giants) over the past two years, after making four starts in his first 40 career appearances. He's been relatively durable in five professional seasons, missing just eight of a possible 80 appearances, and seems like he could be on the verge of a breakout campaign, having more than tripled his previous career high in QB hits last year (three to 10).

Lands on IR
LBNew York Giants
September 11, 2019
The Giants placed Martin (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday.
Martin was already expected to have an extended absence, and his placement on injured reserve guarantees he won't return until Week 10 at the earliest. The nature of his injury is still unclear. Tuzar Skipper and Oshane Ximines figure to see an uptick in their snap counts while Martin recovers.

2015 Fantasy Outlook
After manning outside linebacker in college, Martin was tabbed to play defensive end as a rookie in 2014, and the results weren't pretty (eight tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble in 11 games). The majority of his snaps occurred in the first half of the season, as he logged only 16 of his 183 on the season over the last seven contests. Martin's offseason has included a switch to his more natural position, OLB, where he's slated to act as Alex Okafor's primary backup on the strong side. While his snaps will likely be limited, Martin may have more opportunity to unleash his pass-rushing ability.
