FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Head coach Lovie Smith won't overuse RB Doug Martin as was often the case under Greg Schiano. The Bucs will rotate in some other backs to keep him fresh, mentioning rookie Charles Sims, Bobby Rainey and Mike James.

Much of Martin's fantasy value came from his high volume usage, though there is a chance he is more effective with limited work. If Martin starts slow for a third consecutive season there is a real chance Sims or James takes over as the featured back. Martin almost certainly will not be a top-five fantasy back like he was as a rookie, and he is riskier than several players currently going after him in drafts.ANALYST: Steve Pimental
