Bucs coach Greg Schiano brushed off the notion that Doug Martin is wearing down. Martin is averaging just 2.71 YPC over the last two weeks, but that has a lot to do with the defensive performances of the Falcons and Broncos. This week, he’ll get to face an Eagles defense that gives up at least a fistful of big plays each game. With Schiano still firmly in his corner, is Martin set up for a big-time bounce-back performance.
I am not sure, he has been slowing down after an insane amount of yardage in a few straight weeks, could that be from getting the ball too much? I don’t think there is too much to worry about, but he sure hasn’t been helping his fantasy owners with the past two weeks of play.
