Lavonte David re-signing with Tampa Bay

According to Josina Anderson of CBS Sports HQ, LB Lavonte David is returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

David, entering his 12th season in the NFL, has been a Tampa-Bay-for-lifer so far in his career, totaling 1,346 career tackles and 166 career starts. David will return on a one-year deal worth $7 million guaranteed as he continues to prove he has plenty left in the tank.

Lavonte David (ankle) expected to miss time

Buccaneers star linebacker Lavonte David suffered a low ankle sprain during Sunday's win over Miami. He has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Eagles and will be assessed on a week-to-week basis thereafter.

Fantasy Impact

David, a former Pro Bowler and All-Pro linebacker, has recorded one sack, two quarterback hits, two passes defended, and 34 tackles through five games in 2021. It sounds like the 31-year-old could miss several games, but nothing suggests he will require a stint on injured reserve.

Per Adam Schefter, Lavonte David has been ruled out against the Dolphins with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact

After exiting early in the second quarter with an ankle injury, the Buccaneers quickly ruled out their All-Pro LB with an ankle injury. Big loss for a defense that is missing several key pieces in the secondary.

Lavonte David inks two-year extension with the Buccaneers

LB Lavonte David agreed to a two-year, $25 million extension on Tuesday. The deal includes $20 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

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 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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
