Martin has signed a two-year, $3 million contract extension with the Patriots, ESPM.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Martin, who finished the 2015 regular season with 24 catches for 269 yards and two TDs in nine games for the Patriots after being acquired in a Sept. 17 trade with the Texans, will thus continue to provide the team with wideout depth next year. Heading into the upcoming offseason, Julian Edelman, Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola will all also be under contract with the Patriots in 2016, which probably puts Martin an injury or a personnel move away from fantasy relevance next season.

Martin finished the 2015 regular season with 24 catches for 269 yards and two TDs in nine games for the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman poised to return for the postseason, Martin's role in the Patriots offense figures to be reduced, with Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix. Beyond that, Martin's future with the team remains unclear, as he's in the final year of his rookie deal, signed while the 2012 fourth-round draft pick was with the Texans.

Martin was on the field for 56 of the Patriots' 60 snaps on offense in Sunday's 20-10 loss to the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

While the Patriots' passing offense sputtered in Week 17, Martin caught just one pass on two targets for four yards in the contest. Assuming Julian Edelman is ready to roll once the postseason starts, Martin's role in the team's offense figures to be reduced, with Brandon LaFell and Danny Amendola also in the team's wideout mix.

Martin caught seven of 11 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's 26-20 overtime loss to the Jets. He also ran once for six yards.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola both out Sunday, Martin saw an expanded role in the Patriots' offense, with what the team is playing for, as well as the availability of Edelman and Amendola, representing variables with regard to Martin's potential workload next Sunday against the Dolphins.

Martin was on the field for 55 of 66 snaps on offense in Sunday's 33-16 win over the Titans, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

With both Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola banged up, Martin -- who caught three of his four targets for 26 yards in the contest -- could continue to see an expended role in Week 16, a scenario that could yield him some added targets in the event that the Jets elect to match cornerback Darrelle Revis up against Brandon LaFell on Sunday.

Martin caught three passes for 23 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Sunday's 27-6 win over the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Martin got open for a two-yard touchdown against his former team to kick off the scoring, but he then muffed a punt in the second half. Although he will likely continue to play the majority of offensive snaps while Julian Edelman (foot) is unavailable, Martin is only fourth or fifth in the pecking order of targets. The Patriots face the Titans in Week 15.

Martin, who caught three passes for 45 yards (on eight targets) in Sunday's 35-28 loss to the Eagles, was on the field for a team-high 86 of the Patriots' 89 snaps on offense in the game, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

While his production Sunday wasn't eye-popping, Martin should continue see to his share of work at wideout and targets from QB Tom Brady, while Julian Edelman remains out. Next up for Martin in Week 14 is a chance to square off against the Texans, the team that dealt him to the Patriots back in September.

Martin (hamstring) caught his only target for an eight-yard gain in Sunday's 30-24 loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Playing for the first time since Week 6, Martin handled 62 of the 67 offensive snaps, with Chris Harper getting just five, according to Pro Football Focus. Tom Brady mostly avoided the Denver cornerbacks, which allowed New England's tight ends and running backs to combine for 31 of the 42 targets. If Danny Amendola (knee) were to miss another game, Martin would likely see a few more looks in a favorable matchup with the Eagles.

Martin (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson all out this week, Martin should have a chance to assume a key role in the Patriots' Week 12 offense along with fellow wideout Brandon LaFell and perhaps Chris Harper, though the Broncos -- who have allowed a league-low average of 190.6 passing yards per game to date -- represent a touch matchup for the trio, in less-than-balmy and potentially snowy Denver.

Martin (hamstring) is expected to be active for Sunday night's game against the Broncos, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Julian Edelman out with a foot injury, Aaron Dobson on IR and Danny Amendola having been ruled out this week, there's an opportunity for Martin (assuming he suits up) to step into a key role in the Patriots' Week 12 offense along with fellow wideout Brandon LaFell and possibly Chris Harper, though the Broncos -- who have allowed a league-low average of 190.6 passing yards per game to date -- present them all with a less than optimal matchup, in chilly and possibly snowy conditions in Denver.
