Alright, it's time we give credit where credit is due. Whether you like him or not, Curtis Martin is turning heads this year. While we have only commited two weeks to this season, no other running back has been as dominant as Martin, yet his recognition as a fantasy starter hasn't been lower. Why is it that we still value players like Quentin Griffin over him? Is Curtis Martin the most underrated running back in the NFL? Or, were these first two weeks flukes? Is this due to Chad Pennington being QB or did the Jets O-Line improve over the offseason that drastically? I'm just wondering what, if anything, people credit Curtis Martin to, and what it will take for fantasy owners across the nation to rely on him as a legit #2 RB, not a mediocre back up.

I'm not buying yet.

Props for doing what any RB should do against the Bengals and Chargers, which is run run run.

But come on. I'm sure as heck not trading for him.

Although, I think he made a good enough impressions on the first two opponents that future teams will respect that and play the line. If Penny can make more of those deep balls and stretch the field, C-mart will continue to be successful.

Aww put it in a great perspective:

Any rb can run over teams like the Texans, Chargers, Chiefs, etc.

If he runs for 150 plus on the Ravens, then I'll consider him the most underrated back in the league, but I highly doubt that ;-)
