Default Why Won't Freeman Throw To Martin?

I'll admit that I only noticed this because I have Martin on my fantasy team, but Freeman tried to force it downfield so many times when Martin ran out of the backfield on a curl and didn't have anyone within ten yards of him.

He had four catches for 23 yards, but it should have been at least 8 catches for 60 to 80 yards.

I was amazed because Martin was killing them on the ground, so why wouldn't they want someone to at least shadow him?

Anybody have any clue? Maybe they just didn't want him to get more attention so he could keep kililng it running the ball?

It was stupid, right?

He was open three-to-five yards down the field everytime with no one within five yards of him and he kept forcing it downfield

Regardless of fantasy football, why wouldn't the coaches say "hey, Freeman, THROW THE ****ING BALL TO MARTIN!"?

Side note, you also got a steal in Martin I have him, Peterson, Tom Brady, and Gronkowski, so I've been destroying people, but it will be interesting to see if Brady still produces without Gronk, which he should, especially if Hernandez is really back.
