Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Pair of impact stops in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor tallied four tackles (three solo), including two for loss, in the Buccaneers' 16-3 loss to the Redskins on Sunday.

The interim middle linebacker couldn't quite match the level of production he'd mustered in Week 9 against the Panthers (nine tackles), but he did make good use out of his three solo stops. The 28-year-old Taylor will continue to have opportunities to rack up tackle numbers from his Mike position in coordinator Mark Duffner's scheme. Moreover, the combination of a potential Lavonte David (knee) absence and a Giants ground attack featuring Saquon Barkley could lead to a particularly busy day for Taylor in Week 11.

Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Significant improvement in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor logged his second start at middle linebacker in Sunday's 42-28 loss to the Panthers and posted a team-high nine tackles (four solo).

Taylor's final line represented a welcome uptick from his production in Week 8 against the Bengals, his first game as middle linebacker in Kwon Alexander's (knee) stead. The fourth-year pro's tackle total paced the Bucs on the afternoon and provided some reason for optimism with respect to his IDP value moving forward. Taylor is now just four tackles shy of the career-high 31 stops he logged last season.

Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Quiet during first start in middle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor, making his first start at middle linebacker for Kwon Alexander (knee-ACL), notched three tackles (one solo) in the Buccaneers' 37-34 loss to the Bengals on Sunday.

Taylor's first start at the middle linebacker position didn't exactly result in any worthwhile boost in IDP production. The 28-year-old was coming off a season-high seven stops in the Week 7 overtime win against the Browns, so the Week 8 downturn was certainly a disappointment. He should have plenty of chances to boost his tackle numbers in Week 9 versus a Panthers team that tends to log plenty of action on the ground by virtue of Cam Newton's elite mobility and Christian McCaffrey's presence in the backfield.

Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Ready for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dirk Koetter expressed confidence in Taylor as the Buccaneers' starting middle linebacker, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Koetter called smith a "tough customer." With Kwon Alexander (knee) on injured reserve due to a torn ACL, Smith is expected to receive a starter's workload for the remainder of the season. The 27-year-old recorded six tackles and a sack after replacing Alexander during Sunday's win over the Browns, and is an appealing pickup in IDP leagues.

Buccaneers' Adarius Taylor: Records six tackles and one sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor logged six tackles and one sack during the Buccaneers' 26-23 overtime win against the Browns on Sunday, Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Taylor entered the starting lineup in place of Kwon Alexander (knee) midway through the Week 7 contest, and played adequately to close out the game. With Alexander out for the season due to an ACL tear, Taylor appears likely to continue serving as a starter for Tampa Bay's defense going forward. The 27-year-old's warrants IDP consideration due to his anticipated workload.
