Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Solid as rookie despite injuries
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vea, who was credited with four solo tackles in a Week 17 loss to the Falcons, finished his rookie season with 28 tackles (21 solo), including two for loss, and three sacks across 13 games.

A calf injury that Vea suffered in a July 29 camp practice cost the rookie significant time, delaying his NFL debut until Week 4 against the Bears. Vea was then held off the stat sheet in his first two games, and he managed just 3.5 total tackles over the subsequent five contests. His season finally started trending in the right direction Week 12 against the 49ers, and he finished the campaign averaging 4.2 stops over the final six games of the season. Despite Vea's massive presence in the middle, the Buccaneers still allowed over six more rushing yards per game in 2018 than the year prior (123.9, compared to 117.5 in 2017), so the hope is a full training camp and regular season in 2019 will help both Vea and the team statistically.

Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Returns to sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vea had three tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 27-20 loss at Dallas.

Vea came back down to earth after exploding for nine tackles a week ago, but he still managed to record the sack. The 23-year-old has been limited throughout the season by injuries, but he's logged heavy snap counts over the last few games.

Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Tallies nine tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vea recorded nine tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.

Vea entered Sunday with 12 tackles through 10 games, and a career-high of 4 tackles in a game. While he didn't notch any sacks, his nine tackles made Sunday's outing one of his most impressive as a pro. He'll look to maintain his momentum into Week 16, when the Buccaneers take on the Cowboys.

Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Equals career high in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vea logged four tackles (three solo) in the Buccaneers' 28-14 loss to the Saints on Sunday.

The mammoth tackle equaled the career-best tackle total he'd managed two games ago against the 49ers. Vea always has a chance to log decent tackle numbers against run-heavy offenses, but other than the pair of contests with four stops, he's posted one tackle or has been shut out in the eight other games he's suited up for. As a result, he remains a low-upside IDP option for the time being.

Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Tallies second career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vea had four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over the 49ers.

Vea entered Sunday's game with three total tackles and a sack through for the entire season, making his performance akin to a defensive explosion. The rookie first-round pick should continue to work as a rotational defensive tackle for the Buccaneers.
