Doug Martin puts in another average fantasy performance in Week 13

US PRESSWIRE

Doug Martin struggled on the ground again. We break down the fantasy implications.

For the second week in a row, Doug Martin found it difficult to get the ground game going for the Buccaneers. He rushed for 56 yards on 18 carries against the Broncos in Week 13, averaging just 3.1 yards per touch.

Martin also caught three passes out of the backfield for 42 yards, helping his stat line look a little better for the afternoon.

Fantasy Impact: Last week Martin only managed 50 yards, but two touchdowns certainly boosted his value. This time around the Broncos contained him well. Some speculate the long season is wearing on the rookie, while other critics simply say defenses are preparing for him more.

Whatever the case, Martin should be a candidate for a big game next weekend against the Eagles. He still holds RB1 value each game.
