Lavonte David gets his first interception

Lavonte David racked up seven total tackles (four solo) and an interception during Sunday’s 55-40 win over the Rams.

Fantasy Impact

David is the Buccaneers’ tackle leader with 30 through four games played. The eight-year veteran is still an excellent IDP starter in most leagues.

Lavonte David has major impact in win over Carolina Week 13

Tampa Bay's defense was much improved versus Carolina with the return of veteran linebacker Lavonte David. He had missed a few contests with a knee injury but returned in great form. David racked up a total of ten solos, two assists, one sack, one tackle for a loss and chipped in with his own passed defended as well. His performance capped fellow linebacker Adarius Taylor to four solos.

Fantasy Impact

His return is great timing for IDP owners heading into the fantasy football playoffs. He'll be a good IDP producer for most of the remaining contest just based on the state of the Tampa Bay defense.

Lavonte David and Justin Evans trending to play versus Carolina Week 13

Both weakside linebacker Lavonte David and free safety Justin Evans returned to practice Wednesday. Dirk Koetter was quoted calling it a "big boost to everyone's morale."

Fantasy Impact

For their IDP owners, it is great news as many deep leagues are starting the playoffs. For owners of Devante Bond and Adarius Taylor there likely won't be any different results as they've struggle while David was out. Question is who impressed enough to be the other linebacker to stay on the field with David for most of the defensive snaps. That might be a situation to avoid for Week 13. With Evans returning Isaiah Johnson and Jordan Whitehead will also likely see a reduced role. It'll be a tough call who may out snap and out produce the other this week as well.

Lavonte David and Justin Evans headline Tampa Bay out on defence Sunday

Tampa Bay Linebacker Lavonte David and free safety Justin Evans headline the Tampa Bay players who will be out for the defense on Sunday versus San Francisco at this time.

Fantasy Impact

IDP owners can fire up the sub-par replacement linebackers for some production by default with Adarius Taylor and possibly Devante Bond. While Isaiah Johnson and Jordan Whitehead (head), who was recently upgraded to questionable, will likely enjoy the fruits of their IDP labor as they did against the New York Giants their last contest.

Lavonte David (knee) and Justin Evans (toe) out Week 11

Tampa Bay linebacker Lavonte David (knee) and free safety Justin Evans (toe) are out Week 11 versus the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

IDP owners will likely want to completely look elsewhere for replacement players here as the next men up could be risky if inserted. We will note that the matchups are favorable per position played versus New York, but that the replacements could be considered sub-par at linebacker and at safety it will be unclear of which player receives the most time on the field. Linebackers Adarius Taylor and Devante Bond should see plenty of action and safety Jordan Whitehead may record his highest snap count this contest on the season.
