01:33 PM ET 12.17 | Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin said turnovers and a one-dimensional offense caused his worst fantasy football day of the season. Martin finished with just 16 yards on nine carries against the New Orleans Saints, who came into the game with statistically one of the worst rushing defenses in the NFL. Martin said on Sunday (via The Tampa Bay Times) that the game got away from Tampa Bay, which trailed 24-0 at halftime. That deficit forced the Buccaneers into passing mode instead of using their steady running game. Tampa Bay takes on the St. Louis Rams in Week 16.

Wow, so that's what Doug Martin looks like.

Seriously, even back in the days of film photography when you paid for every picture you shot so you held on to the prints, that one would have gone in the trash.
