Doug Martin rushed 16 times for 32 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 14 win over the Steelers.
Martin capped off an impressive opening drive with a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter -- it was his third attempt from near the goal line. He did not do much of note outside of that run, but he once again operated as the lead back and now has 34 carries in the last two games. Assuming C.J. Anderson does not eat into his role, Martin will be an interesting play in a great matchup next week against the Bengals. Dec 9 - 8:38 PM

Doug Martin (knee) is active for Week 14 against the Steelers.

Martin was never expected to sit following a full week of practice. He should continue to dominate early-down work with C.J. Anderson inactive, but he is nothing more than a FLEX.
Dec 9 - 2:56 PM

Doug Martin (questionable, knee) is expected to play in Week 14 against the Steelers.

The Raiders listed Martin as questionable despite practicing fully. There was early week concern over his status after the C.J. Anderson signing, but Martin's knee won't keep him out. Martin's role is the bigger concern in a game Oakland will likely be playing from behind.
Dec 9 - 7:59 AM

Doug Martin (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Steelers.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal's Michael Gehlken reported mid-week that Martin should be "good to go." We expect him to play. Even so, it's possible the Raiders have four backs active following the addition of C.J. Anderson to their backfield. Hopefully you have other options even if Martin suits up.
Dec 7 - 3:26 PM

Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Doug Martin (knee) should be "good to go" for Week 14 against the Steelers.

There was concern over Martin's status for Sunday, particularly after the Raiders signed C.J. Anderson, but he seems to be trending in the right direction after getting in a full practice on Wednesday. Martin will take a two-game touchdown streak into Sunday's home matchup with Pittsburgh.
Dec 5 - 7:02 PM

Doug Martin has a knee injury and is uncertain for Week 14 against the Steelers.

That would explain the signing of C.J. Anderson on Tuesday. If Martin sits, Anderson will take his place in the rotation alongside Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington. None of the three are recommended fantasy plays.
Dec 5 - 2:37 PM

Doug Martin rushed 18 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 13 loss to the Chiefs, also losing a fumble.

Martin was one of three Raiders running backs to lose a fumble on the afternoon. Were it not for all the giveaways, the Raiders might have actually managed to spring the stunning home upset. Now all the way back from his mysterious Week 11 usage, Martin has found the end zone in back-to-back games. He will offer floor as a Week 14 FLEX against the Steelers.
Dec 2 - 8:19 PM

Doug Martin contributed 51 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries while adding three grabs for 21 yards on four targets Sunday in the Raiders’ Week 12 loss to Baltimore.

Martin staked the Raiders to an early lead with a one-yard touchdown scamper in the first quarter. The play was originally ruled a lost fumble, but replay showed Martin crossed the plane before coughing it up. That touchdown was Martin's first since Week 14 of last season. Game script was Martin's undoing as the Muscle Hamster was held to just one second-half carry with Oakland in catch-up mode. The 29-year-old was limited by an ankle injury at practice this week but didn't show any ill effects in Sunday's defeat. Martin and the 2-9 Raiders will host Kansas City in Week 13.
Nov 25 - 4:28 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 12 against the Ravens.

Martin sat out the second half of last week's win over Arizona, but was cleared to play after getting in a limited week of practice. He'll remain the Raiders' go-to ball-carrier with Jalen Richard mixing in on passing downs.
Nov 23 - 3:27 PM

Doug Martin (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Jon Gruden downplayed Martin's injury earlier this week. His prompt return to practice confirms the injury isn't serious. Martin will be ready to roll Sunday at Baltimore. He'll be a stay-away RB3 in a tough matchup.
Nov 21 - 7:12 PM

Coach Jon Gruden admitted Monday that he's not concerned with Doug Martin's ankle injury.

"I think he'll be okay," said Gruden. Gruden later conceded the real reason Martin was benched at halftime was because he wants to get DeAndre Washington more touches going forward. The Raiders' backfield has devolved into a three-man committee with Martin, Washington, and Jalen Richard all sharing work.
Nov 19 - 4:20 PM

Updating an earlier item, Doug Martin was absent for the second half of Sunday's win over the Cardinals because of an ankle injury.

Coach Jon Gruden told the CBS booth that Martin was not injured but admitted afterward he "had to be shot up at halftime." The Raiders never announced Martin with an injury, which is highly unusual. It will likely warrant a look from the NFL. Jalen Richard ran well in Martin's absence. His status will be updated no later than Wednesday when the Raiders issue their first Week 12 injury report.
Nov 18 - 7:30 PM

Doug Martin rushed 10 times for 52 yards in the Raiders' Week 11 win over the Cardinals but was benched at halftime.

Martin also caught a six-yard pass. All 11 of Martin's touches came before the break. The veteran was not injured. Coach Jon Gruden told the CBS booth he simply wanted to see what Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington could do in the second half. Martin took the benching in stride, enthusiastically chest bumping Gruden after the Raiders' last-second victory. Richard was effective in Martin's absence, but the Cardinals are a soft run matchup. Only Richard will have any FLEX appeal for Week 12 against the Ravens' elite defense. Martin's 2018 fantasy future is uncertain.
Nov 18 - 7:26 PM

Doug Martin rushed 15 times for 61 yards and hauled in all three of his targets for 31 yards in the Raiders' Week 10 loss to the Chargers.

Martin was a bright spot for the Raiders in this one. He kept the offense moving for 50 yards on the ground in the first half, and he came up with a 23-yard catch-and-run after the break. Unfortunately, he took a back seat with the Raiders chasing the game late, something which will be a problem for the rest of the season. Martin has quietly looked pretty good the last several weeks, but the offense makes him just a FLEX play even in a good matchup against the Cardinals.
Nov 11 - 7:50 PM

Doug Martin (hip) wasn't listed on the Raiders' final injury report for Week 10 against the Chargers.

Martin will suit up Sunday, as expected. Even so, the Raiders have to stay competitive in order for Martin to receive volume — something they haven't been able to do since they're, you know, bad. Jalen Richard offers more upside as Oakland attempts to match the Chargers point-for-point Sunday.
