Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin had a great rookie season in 2012. He played in all 16 regular season games and totaled 1,454 rushing yards and scored 12 touchdowns. Last year his season was cut short by injury; he missed ten games with a shoulder injury.
Now I’m looking at the top fantasy football options at running back and I’m not seeing Doug Martin’s name. Why?
I assume it’s because people have short memories. If a player misses a year the average fan is going to forget that he even exists. Well, I think it’s time that we remedied this problem. Martin has the potential to be one of the five best running backs in the NFL and if he’s healthy in 2013 he will prove that.
