Doug Martin Gets Carries, Not Fantasy Points

Doug Martin carries it 19 times. We break down the fantasy implications.

Doug Martin toted the rock 19 times to only muster 53 yards to go with his two catches for 21 yards.

Analysis: Martin owners shouldn't be uneasy about his value. LeGarrette Blount did get carries this week with four, but he still isn't in the rear-view mirror for Martin. The rookie out of Boise State has really yet to have a game that gets the attention of the mainstream fantasy world, but that should be happening sooner rather than later. Martin should be viewed as a low-end RB1 next week against the Redskins.
