Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin is no longer in a walking boot, but missed the final practice of the week and is unlikely to go Sunday.
Insight: This Doug Martin, the one we have witnessed all season, isn't fantasy worthy even when healthy. In five games, he's failed to run for more than 45 yards. Bobby Rainey should get the majority of the work, though Charles Sims is also available.

Insight: A change of scenery could be nice for Martin, as he has only 139 rushing yards, on 2.9 yards per carry. With only one touchdown, and after missing most of the 2013 season, Tampa Bay probably would not fetch more than a late-round pick in return.

Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin (knee) calls himself 100 percent according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: To say Martin has struggled this season is a huge understatement, but it sounds like he is at least motivated to prove his doubters wrong. It looks like Mike Glennon will get the start at quarterback, which means Martin should be heavily involved. He also has a good matchup against a weak Steelers run defense.
