thoughts on Doug Martin ?

What are your thoughts on Doug Martin when he gets reinstated ?
I drafted him on a couple teams, so obviously i'm hoping he becomes the starter when he gets back.

I'm invested in him, too. He should have a clear path to the starting job, and I think he's got some good motivation to focus and play hard. I'm a little wary of rolling him out there on a Thursday night against NE week 5, but I imagine a lot of people that own him will have to play him regardless of match up.
My post count says I'm a rookie, but I've been giving bad advice here for years!

For teams in need of help at RB, it's going to be hard to bench Martin in week 5. It's a home game against a NE team that's been surprisingly poor defensively to start the year. They got gashed by Hunt in the opener and allowed a ton of points to Houston (?!?) at home yesterday. It's obvious that Jaquizz is "just a guy" and Sims is purely in the the passing RB role only.

I don't see any scenario where Martin does not come in and immediately take over as the lead back. The Bucs signed Martin to a decent deal prior to 2016. His suspension voided the guarantee on his 2017 salary though, so if the Bucs had any intent to move on from him they easily could have done so this past off-season. Instead they were pumping him up throughout OTA's and the summer. I am putting him in my lineup Week 5. A Thursday night game should make Martin the freshest guy on the field and the Pats are not a defense to be avoided right now.

I have high hopes for hIm this year. He looked great in preseason and is a guarantee to get 15+ touches per game in a very productive offense. Granted, I drafted him on each of my three teams this year so hopefully it's not I st wishful thinking

Thoughts on trading Larry Fitzgerald for Doug Martin ? I am in desperate need for RB2. Should I trade Larry for Doug ?
