Doug Martin, RB, Oakland Raiders
Martin had just 32 yards on 16 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14, but he scored for the third straight game with 34 carries over the last two. If C.J. Anderson makes his Raiders’ debut in Week 15 that won’t be great news, but Martin is still in line to take advantage of a good matchup.
The Cincinnati Bengals went into Week 14 allowing the most fantasy points to running backs (ESPN PPR scoring), with a rushing touchdown allowed to the position in eight straight games now. Prior to Week 14, Cincinnati was allowing 5.1 yards per carry to running backs this season.
Martin had topped 50 rushing yards in five of six games heading into Week 1, and that may be a low-water mark for his yardage in Week 15. The “Muscle Hamster” is a good bet to score too, and he’s a high upside play in a crucial week for fantasy owners.
