NFL Rumors: Doug Martin not expected to lose any carries in 2014

It appears that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be it he market for a running back in the draft and that has some worried that Doug Martin will get swallowed up as just another back in a committee for the Buccaneers. But while the Bucs have plenty of talent on their roster at running back, Pat Yasinskas doesn’t believe Martin will be losing any carries anytime soon.


Martin still is going to be the main ball carrier and that means he still will be a fantasy force. Smith and his staff will work Mike James and Bobby Rainey into the rotation, but that’s not going to diminish Martin’s impact.

This is not only good news for Martin but also fantasy owners who are high on Martin heading into 2014. He had his sophomore season cut short but the taste and promise of his rookie campaign have many excited to see him bust out of the gate in 2014 and return to the level he was at when he burst on to the scene.
