Buccaneers 24-year old Doug Martin told the media he is not a believer in a "Sophomore Jinx" and is looking to build on a rookie season that saw him finish in the top five in the league in rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and carries.
The Bucs were a top 10 offense last season, are returning guards Carl Nicks and Davin Joseph, add in that the "Muscle Hampster" will come into the season with a much higher comfort level, and it is not a surprise that he, nor you, should buy into any so-called "Sophomore Jinx." With both Arian Foster and Jamaal Charles injury concerns/history it would not be a stretch to consider targeting Martin as the second running back off the board, behind Vikings Adrian Peterson, come draft day.

Doug Martin's rookie season was flat out fantastic. He is a Ray Rice-like fantasy back, and should be taken in the top half of first round in all formats this year.
