Default Doug Martin

He is emerging as a premier fantasy running back. 233 yards today and 3 tds, with 4 receptions for 21 yards.

Last week 135, 1 td, 3 rec, 79 yds 1 td.

Week before 85 yards and 1 td, 3 for 37 receiving.

Basically as a rookie he is a top 10 rb going into this week. After today, he will be ranked pretty high. So glad I have him in both of my leagues. (scored 58.6 points so far for me in Toast's league, 44pts in my money league)


Correction...265 yds 4 tds rushing. Might be one of the greatest fantasy days ever by a rb. If not has to be an all-time top 10 performance.

I know its all hindsight right now, but Zeitler with the 17th pick, and Martin with the 20 whatever pick we had? Granted our o-line is crap, but he is better than BJGE by a mile.

He's Ray Rice 2.0, but maybe even better (when it's all said and done).

Only problem, though, is that he'd work great if Gruden ran a true WCO style attack like it should be, but I think Marvin would influence him to use him more as a bruiser.

According to NFL.com, it is ranked as the 3rd all time fantasy performance by a running back. The best ever by a rookie.

Damn braggers. You know, I'm pretty sure I had Doug Martin one of my CBS leagues and dropped him in preseason when it was rumored that Blount would be the starter. Fortunately, I still have Peterson and Rice and my team is 9-0. Otherwise I'd be ******.

I'd still be ****** because you'd have three of the top four backs which would be key for bye weeks, injury insurance, or trade bait if you just wanted to make your team even stronger.

My league is full of tools. Several weeks in, guys like Steven Ridley, Shonn Greene and Andrew Luck were getting dropped. I picked up all three. Wound up trading Ridley for Reggie Wayne. Now my team looks like this:

Peyton Manning
Adrian Peterson
Ray Rice
AJ Green
Reggie Wayne
Denarius Moore
Tony Gonzalez
S. Gostkowski
Texans DST

Backups:

A. Luck
S. Greene
G. Jennings
S. Smith

It's a 12 team standard league, so I'm kicking ***. Might be my best fantasy team ever.

Are you serious? Is everyone else in your league way more brain damaged than I am??

That team would be unreal in an 8 team league, much-less 12!!

Seriously, did you get two teams and then just trade all the players from one team to the other? Even then, I still don't see how you came away with that team!

Lol. I actually drafted all of my starters other than Wayne (trade) and D.Moore (free agent).

By round:

1st- Ray Rice
2nd- AJ Green
3rd- AP (a steal in the 3rd)
4th- P. Manning (took a gamble, it paid off big time)
5th- T. Gonzalez (he's been a pleasant surprise)

Then I got the Texans in round 12.
