Running back Doug Martin adapts to reduced role with Raiders

Doug Martin has averaged at least 12.2 carries per game in each of his six NFL seasons. He’s averaging only 5.4 this year with the Raiders.
Of course, this is the first time Martin has played behind Marshawn Lynch.
Martin knew a reduced role awaited when he signed with the Raiders in March, less than a month after Tampa Bay released him. But it still takes some adapting, especially after making 65 starts over those six seasons with the Bucs and twice gaining more than 1,400 yards rushing (in 2012 and ’15).
“Shoot, we’ve got a great back in front of us,” Martin said of Lynch. “To be able to run like that at his age (32) is impressive. I’m just being patient and waiting for my time. … It’s something I have to get used to.
