Buccaneers' Devin White: Excels in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White, who had five tackles (four solo) and a fumble recovery touchdown in a Week 17 overtime loss to the Falcons, finished the 2019 campaign with 91 tackles (58 solo), 2.5 sacks, one interception, three defensed passes, three forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries and two total touchdowns across 13 games.

As his final numbers indicate, the 2019 first-round pick's versatility was as good as advertised during his rookie campaign. At the time they invested the fifth overall pick on him last April, Buccaneers brass had lauded White for his ability to handle every aspect of a linebacker's responsibilities -- stopping the run, occasionally blitzing the quarterback and covering backs and tight ends -- with equal aplomb. White validated that assessment with impact plays throughout the season, and he was an integral part of Tampa allowing an NFL-low 73.8 rushing yards per game. White will head into 2020 fantasy drafts as a top-shelf IDP option who should be even more productive during his second season in coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Picks up fumble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White recorded three solo tackles and one fumble recovery during Sunday's 38-17 win over the Lions.

White was initially listed as questionable for the Week 15 contest due to an illness, but he managed to play all 64 possible snaps on defense. The rookie linebacker was held to his lowest tackle total since Week 2 against the Panthers, when he played just six defensive snaps, but he salvaged his day for IDP purposes by recovering a fumble knocked out by Lavonte David in the fourth quarter.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Active in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (illness) is active for Sunday's Week 15 tilt versus the Lions, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The rookie linebacker was a Saturday addition to the injury report with his illness, but he'll suit up and start as customary in Sunday's game.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Pops up on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

White was added to the injury report Saturday, so he'll need a quick turnaround to be ready for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff. The rookie first-rounder has been an every-down player when healthy, racking up 75 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three forced fumbles over 10 games. If he's unable to play, either Kevin Minter or Noah Dawkins will draw the start.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White had seven tackles (five solo), an interception and returned a fumble for a touchdown in Sunday's 28-11 win over the Jaguars.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Logs two sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White was credited with eight tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 35-22 win over the Falcons.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Season-high 13 stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White tallied 13 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Saints.

White marked a double-digit tackle count for the second time in three weeks, and he ranks second on the Buccaneers with 54 stops despite missing three games. The rookie first-rounder is certainly living up to expectations, and his average of 7.7 tackles per contest makes him a worthy IDP performer.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Solid tackle tally in Week 10 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White collected six tackles (three solo) in the Buccaneers' 30-27 win over the Cardinals on Sunday.

The rookie only mustered half the amount of stops he'd garnered in his career-best Week 9 performance, but White's tackle tally still tied him for third Sunday with Jordan Whitehead. White is still averaging just under seven tackles per contest over the six games he's suited up for, and he's recorded a pair of forced fumbles as well.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Stuffs stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White had 12 tackles (six solo), a half-sack and two forced fumbles in Sunday's overtime loss at Seattle.

White delivered the most productive performance of his young career, as the sack and fumbles were career firsts. The 21-year-old missed three games early in the season due to a knee sprain, but since returning, he has 27 tackles (18 solo) and one pass defensed in three games.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Tallies six stops in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White recorded six tackles (four solo) and a defensed pass in the Buccaneers' 27-23 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

White checked in second only to Lavonte David in stops on the afternoon, equaling the second-highest tackle total of his young career. The 2019 first-round pick has been as good as advertised on the run-stopping front, although he's struggled some in pass coverage while allowing 10.9 yards per attempt and a 75.0 percent completion percentage. White has yet to force a turnover or record a sack, but he remains a high-upside IDP option and is likely to start making more impact plays based on his bountiful natural talent.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Career day in London
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White made nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

White more than doubled his tackle total of eight in the game, and he suited up for all but one defensive snap. After missing the last three contests, the 21-year-old looks healthy and ready to roll for the rest of the season. The Buccaneers are on bye in Week 7, and White will look to build on Sunday's performance versus the Titans in Week 8.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Primed to start Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that White will start versus the Panthers on Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

White was active Week 5 against the Saints, but he ultimately didn't take the field as a precautionary measure in his recovery. The rookie first-round pick now appears to have put his lingering knee sprain behind him, and he's on track to play a starting workload against Carolina.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Healthy but doesn't play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White was active for Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Saints but didn't get on the field.

After sitting out the last two weeks with a knee sprain, White looked poised to resume his starting role after logging two full practices last week. However, the Buccaneers didn't afford White any snaps, and he was only available as an emergency option, per Greg Auman of The Athletic. White will look to stay healthy during the upcoming week of practice and finally get back on the field Sunday versus the Panthers.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Ready to rock Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Saints.

White will return from a two-game absence and immediately start at inside linebacker. In his only healthy game of the year, White played all 68 defensive snaps and registered six tackles (four solo). Sunday's task will be difficult, though, as Alvin Kamara has been a tough man to take down this year.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

White appears fully recovered from the Grade 1 MCL sprain that caused him to miss the past two games. Barring any setbacks, the rookie first-round pick is on track to retake the field Sunday versus the Saints.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Back on practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) returned to practice in a limited fashion Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

After spending the last two games on the sidelines, White is finally back to work. The rookie first-round pick is rehabbing a Grade 1 MCL sprain, so while this was an important step, he still has a long way to go before he can get back into game action. The Buccaneers will keep a close eye on his practice status this week leading up to Sunday's game versus the Saints.

Buccaneers' Devin White: Won't play Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) will not play Sunday versus the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

White is working his way back from an MCL sprain sustained Week 2. The rookie first-round pick will work to get healthy in time to retake the field Week 5 against the Saints. In the meantime, expect Kevin Minter to draw another start at inside linebacker.

September 26, 2019 02:20 PM
Buccaneers' Devin White: Still can't practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

After suffering an MCL sprain in Week 2, White's timeline was "a game or two," so it wouldn't be surprising if he misses Sunday's matchup versus the Rams. White will need to practice in some capacity to have a chance to play, otherwise Kevin Minter will start again at inside linebacker.
