Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin was limited in Week 4. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin had a disappointing performance in his team's Week 4 loss to the Washington Redskins. On Sunday, Martin carried the ball only 8 times for 33 yards and no touchdowns. He also had two receptions for 9 yards, but was held under 50 all-purpose yards.

Fantasy Analysis: Martin received some pre-draft hype, which caused him to be drafted higher than he rightfully should have been in most leagues. In that regard, Martin has failed to live up to expectations for fantasy owners thus far. He could still pick it up, but the coaching staff needs to maintain a better balance and give him more touches. Martin has showed glimpses early in his career, but his real abilities are yet to be seen.
