LB - TB
LB Lavonte David agreed to a two-year, $25 million extension on Tuesday. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed.
David is one of the top LBs in the game and will remain in Tampa Bay for the next two seasons. He racked up 117 tackles (82 solo), 1.5 sacks, one interception and two fumble recoveries across 16 games in 2020. David is an elite coverage LB and will be one of top defensive players selected in IDP league formats for 2021.
Lavonte David finished Saturday’s loss to the Texans with 10 tackles (eight solo), and a forced fumble.
David leads all Buccaneers in tackles with 115 through Week 16. The eight-year veteran should still be owned and drafted like a low-end LB1 across all leagues.
Lavonte David finished Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Titans with 12 total tackles (eight solo).
David leads all Buccaneers with 53 tackles through Week 8. He is a must-start LB in most IDP leagues.
Lavonte David racked up seven total tackles (four solo) and an interception during Sunday’s 55-40 win over the Rams.
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.
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.
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.
