Fantasy Impact

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.

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.

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.
