Doug Martin Jersey is back.
October 11, 2017
The veteran tailback missed the team’s first three games this season due to suspension, but he returned to feature back duties in Week 5. Martin handled 13 of the team’s 17 carries by a running back and posted 74 yards and one touchdown. He was targeted on three of his 25 snaps but ran only nine pass routes. Charles Sims actually played more snaps (30) and ran 26 routes. In fact, the Bucs have called pass on 94 percent of Sims’ snaps this season. It’s clear that Sims will continue to operate as the team’s passing-down specialist, which certainly limits Martin’s fantasy appeal. Martin is a fringe RB2 against Arizona this week. Jacquizz Rodgers, meanwhile, registered three carries and one target on 12 snaps against New England; he’s well off the fantasy radar.

Coach Dan Quinn expressed optimism regarding the injuries suffered by his top two receivers, Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Jones pulled up with a hip flexor injury during a Week 4 loss to Buffalo, and Sanu suffered a hamstring strain in the same game. Quinn emphasized that both injuries were not long-term ones, and Jones was back practicing Monday after the bye. Meanwhile, Sanu, who sat out Monday, faced a two-to-three week recovery after undergoing an MRI on Oct. 2, so he’s likely to miss this Sunday’s game against Miami and possibly the Super Bowl rematch with New England in Week 7. But the Falcons should be thankful the injuries aren’t too serious. And with star pass-rusher Vic Beasley Jr. back practicing following a hamstring injury, things are looking up for the Falcons. — Vaughn McClure

When you are thinking of dominant defenses, it’s unlikely that the New Orleans Saints, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans come to mind. Those three teams though, are the Miami Dolphins’ past three opponents, and each has scored at least 11 fantasy points. The Falcons will have the added benefit of coming off their bye, which should translate to success against a Dolphins team that just can’t seem to get out of its own way. — Daube
