Doug Martin suffered a minor knee injury against the Carolina Panthers last weekend but is expected to play this weekend against the St. Louis Rams. Rams have a very stout front 7, I don’t see Martin being able to do much against them nursing a knee injury and playing behind a weak offensive line. Do not start Martin unless necessary and don’t over think starting backup Bobby Rainey; I would avoid any Tampa bay running back this week. Fantasy verdict: Bench!
