Lavonte David puts up 10 tackles in Saturday’s loss

Lavonte David finished Saturday’s loss to the Texans with 10 tackles (eight solo), and a forced fumble.

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.
