07:19 PM ET 11.04 | Doug Martin is your fantasy all-star in Week 9 folks. After already ripping off runs of 45 and 67 yards, he burst through the middle of the line again late in the third quarter and ran for 70 yards and a touchdown. All three of his runs went for touchdowns, and though the 70-yarder didn't feature any monster stiff-arms, it gave him 244 rushing yards on 18 carries and showcased his sprinter speed. Martin has already eclipsed the Buccaneers' record for rushing yards in a game, and he's 52 yards behind Adrian Peterson's NFL record of 296 yards. Martin can't get the rookie record without breaking Peterson's, either, because AD got his as a rookie, too.
