While the Tampa Bay defensive lineman and secondary enjoyed a very productive day in the win Sunday Week 12 versus San Fransico, the two main linebackers playing did not. Devante Bond recorded four solos and waiver wire sweetheart Adarius Taylor had one solo with one pass defended.
For IDP owners heading into the fantasy playoffs, this has to be a concern. Now for two weeks in a row, the linebackers in Tampa Bay have been outplayed in IDP production by their fellow teammates in ideal conditions on paper. And this isn't by just a small margin overall. The linebacker production is normally a key area for IDP owners to target on any NFL team for fantasy. It would seem at this point unless Lavonte David returns that Bond and Taylor are more risky plays than any upside they may offer. Two weeks in a row is hard to explain as just being the game flow.
