Buccaneers 24-year old Doug Martin told the media he is not a believer in a "Sophomore Jinx" and is looking to build on a rookie season that saw him finish in the top five in the league in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and carries.

Doug Martin was the number two scorer in fantasy football last year. This year he won't be taking anyone by surprise. rnHowever, the passing game of the Bucs still has to be respected. This will make defenses play Martin honest. Confidently draft Martin as a top ten running back.

Doug Martin's rookie season was flat out fantastic. He is a Ray Rice-like fantasy back, and should be taken in the top half of first round in all formats this year.

The Bucs were a top 10 offense last season, are returning guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, add in that the "Muscle Hampster" will come into the season with a much higher comfort level, and it is not a surprise that he, nor you, should buy into any so-called "Sophomore Jinx." With both Arian Foster and Jamaal Charles injury concerns/history it would not be a stretch to consider targeting Martin as the second running back off the board, behind Vikings Adrian Peterson, come draft day.
