FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY ISSUES: SETBACK KEEP DOUG MARTIN OUT AGAIN WEEK 7

Fantasy football owners of Tampa Bay Buc's running back Doug Martin are beyond frustrated with the fact he has missed the majority of the 2016 season with a stubborn hamstring injury; a situation that became even more annoying when the veteran suffered a setback in practice Wednesday that will now keep him out in Week 7.  Coming off a monster 2015 season where Martin served as a major bellcow back who ran wild on a weekly basis, the fallout from that heavy workload is hurting him this season literally as we have seen in countless cases like this in the past.  The fact of the matter is that backs who receive such a big workload one year often find injuries or poor production the following year as the body doesn't bounce back physically.  Think of examples such as Eddie George, Larry Johnson, and Jamaal Anderson as fairly recent examples where a monster bellow season was followed by trouble the next.  Each of those three also weroe never the same player again either.  Not saying this is what will happen with Martin but he was running poorly even before the hamstring got injured and now he is out for who knows how long.  In his place, Jacquizz Rodgers will once again dominate carries as he did in Week 5 with 32 touches.  Rodgers on volume makes the RB 2 grade this week but he is anything but a given.
