The Buccaneers continue to rely on Doug Martin in the ground game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Doug Martin finished with 20 carries for 66 yards and one touchdown against the Giants. It was as strong of an outing as the rookie had in week one, but the touchdown certainly makes things much better. He took all but two carries, so it's no secret the Buccaneers have found their workhorse.

Fantasy Impact: Tampa Bay's No. 1 back didn't find as much room to run against the Giants as he did last week. He also did not record a catch after being targeted three times. Still, if Martin can continue to find the end zone at least, fantasy owners will be pleased. This is still a work in progress, but Martin shows a lot of promise and potential going forward.
