Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said Doug Martin to be Tampa’s “bell cow” after injuries to Charles Sims and Mike James.
How about he just says that Martin will be the primary ball-carrier out of the backfield and leave the farm animal references to his private life? The injuries have ravaged the running back depth in Tampa, but at least it's made things easier for fantasy owners as now Martin becomes fairly close to being the lone guy out of the Bucs backfield. Bobby Rainey is still there and will continue to fill that third-down, pass-catching role.ANALYST: Howard Bender
