Lavonte David has been one of the best coverage LBs in the NFL, he continues to average double-digit points for fantasy managers and he's fun to watch. Lavonte David has been highly productive over his 10 year career averaging 122.2 tackles per season. David had 97 tackles in just 12 games last season which was good enough to finish the season as LB37. The Buccaneers LB turns 32 this season, the games he missed last season are his first since the 2018 season. Lavonte David is asked to play more coverage snaps than his counterpart Devin white, who excels as a pass rusher. The two compliment each other well and score consistent fantasy points so they reward the fantasy managers. Pro football focus gave David an 81.0 coverage grade on 502 graded snaps. The former 2nd round pick in the 2012 NFL draft has been one of the most consistent IDP linebackers in the game, he averaged double-digit fantasy points again last season and there's no sign of him slowing down anytime soon. This is the type of player you put in your lineup every week and never question it.
