After a dominant performance against the Eagles in Week 11, Doug Martin has been nominated for the NFL's Ground Player of the Week award. Martin rushed for 235 yards on 27 carries as Tampa Bay downed Philadelphia, 45-17.

Martin broke free for several big gains on Sunday, including runs of 84 and 58 yards. He finished the game averaging more than eight yards per carry. Through 11 weeks, Martin has 941 rushing yards, the second-most in the NFL.

Rawles picked up 209 yards and two touchdown on 30 carries in the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers while Ware ran for 92 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries in the Chiefs' win over the Chargers.
