White recorded 12 tackles (eight solo), including two for loss, and recorded an interception during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
White fittingly put an exclamation point on an All-Pro-caliber season with a standout effort in the biggest game of the year, pacing the Buccaneers in both total and solo tackles. The Super Bowl win marked the conclusion of a torrid finish to the campaign for the second-year linebacker, who posted 60 tackles (47 solo), four sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries over the last five games he suited up for. Those impressive figures were compiled around a two-game interruption due to White's COVID-19 infection, which wiped out his availability for the regular-season finale and the wild-card win over Washington. White finished the regular season with 140 tackles (97 solo), nine sacks, four defensed passes, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 15 games, already validating the investment of a fifth overall pick the Buccaneers made in him back in the 2019 draft.
White totaled 15 tackles (nine solo) and recovered a fumble in the Buccaneers' 31-26 win over the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
White once again found himself at the top of the team's leaderboard in tackles, and his recovery and return of an Aaron Jones fumble early in the third quarter set up an eight-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Cameron Brate on the very next play. The 2019 first-round pick missed the wild-card win over Washington due to COVID-19 protocols, but White more than made up for it with a whopping 26 stops, an interception and Sunday's fumble recovery over the last two postseason games. White's diverse skill set will be an asset for the Buccaneers defense as it tries to slow down Patrick Mahomes and his weapons during Super Bowl LV on Sunday, Feb. 7.
White (reserve/COVID-19) recorded 11 tackles (10 solo), including one for loss, a fumble recovery and an interception in the Buccaneers' 30-20 divisional-round win over the Saints on Sunday.
The Pro-Bowl linebacker offered a tangible reminder of the impact he's capable of making with an absolutely dominating performance, one that included a clutch interception on a pass intended for Alvin Kamara with 7:18 remaining that led to the Buccaneers' final touchdown. White now has three straight double-digit tackling efforts dating back to Week 15 of the regular season -- the linebacker missed both Week 17 and the wild-card win over Washington -- and he'll undoubtedly play an integral role again in Sunday's NFC Championship Game versus the Packers.
White was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday and will be available for Sunday's NFC divisional round game versus the Saints, Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The Buccaneers survived a scare from Washington in the wild-card round, and they'll be better fit against the Saints with White back in the fold. The second-year linebacker racked up a whopping 140 tackles, nine sacks and four pass breakups over 15 regular-season games, and he'll be tasked with slowing down Saints running back Alvin Kamara and pressuring quarterback Drew Brees. These two teams played twice during the regular season, with White producing a combined 25 tackles between the two outings.
Coach Bruce Arians said Monday that White (illness) won't be available for Saturday's playoff game against the Football Team, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Per NFL rules, a player who tests positive for the coronavirus needs to be symptom-free for 10 days before returning to team activities. White won't be cleared in time, so he'll miss a second straight game. The 2019 first-round pick has no true replacement, as he posted 140 tackles, nine sacks and four pass breakups this year. Kevin Minter started in White's place in Week 17 and is expected to assume that role again in the first round of playoffs.
White was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday after testing positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
White will be forced to miss Sunday's regular-season finale against the Falcons due to the positive test, and he'll likely have a tough time gaining clearance to suit up for the Buccaneers' postseason opener Jan. 9 or 10. Along with White, fellow linebacker Shaquil Barrett also landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. White wraps up a breakout 2020 regular season with 140 tackles, nine sacks and a forced fumble over his 15 appearances.
White posted 10 tackles (all solo), including one sack and an additional tackle for loss, in the Buccaneers' 47-7 win over the Lions on Saturday. He was credited with three quarterback hits overall.
Just more of the same for the prolific second-year linebacker, who's been an elite IDP asset throughout the 2020 campaign. White is up to 140 tackles and nine sacks on the season following Saturday's standout effort, numbers that he's complemented with four defensed passes, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. White's numbers arguably put in him in the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year, and he'll look to cap off his memorable season in Week 17 against a Falcons team he terrorized for 12 tackles and three sacks in a Week 15 win.
White tallied 12 tackles (10 solo), including three sacks, an additional tackle for loss and two defensed passes in the Buccaneers' 31-27 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
The second-year pro's numbers tell the tale of what a game-changing force he was, but his impact plays were especially timely. All three of White's sacks came in the fourth quarter, the last two with the Buccaneers clinging to their 31-27 lead. The 2019 first-round pick is up to 130 stops on the season when factoring in Sunday's tally, collecting double-digit tackles in five of his last eight games and nine in two other contests during that stretch. His three takedowns of Matt Ryan on Sunday also pulled White into the team lead with Shaquil Barrett in that category, with both players now boasting eight sacks on the campaign. White will look to keep up his ferocious late-season tear in a Week 16 battle against the Lions on Saturday afternoon.
White recorded nine tackles (seven solo) in the Buccaneers' 26-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
The second-year linebacker found himself in a customary spot, namely, near the top of the tackle leaderboard. White checked in second only to Antoine Winfield's 12 stops, but his stellar production certainly was a boon for fantasy managers deploying him in their postseason lineups. White now at least nine tackles in three straight games, and he's reached or exceeded that mark in six of the last eight contests overall. White will look to continue his favorable run in a Week 15 divisional battle against the Falcons.
White registered 12 tackles (nine solo) in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
White's tackle tally comfortably led the Buccaneers on the afternoon, and with the Chiefs running a whopping 72 plays, the second-year linebacker had no shortage of opportunities on defense. White's busy afternoon pushed him to a career-high 109 total stops for the season and led to his fourth double-digit tackle effort in the last seven games. He'll be primed for another potentially fruitful IDP performance against the run-heavy Vikings in Week 14 following Tampa's Week 13 bye.
White furnished nine tackles (five solo), including one for loss, and was credited with a quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night.
The second-year linebacker exceeded the 91 stops he'd tallied during his rookie 2019 campaign over 13 games with Monday night's effort, which marked his sixth game with at least nine tackles this season. White has also proven good for the occasional sack in coordinator Todd Bowles' scheme, already recording five, all between Weeks 6 and 8. White will look to keep up the stellar IDP production in what should be another busy day for the Tampa Bay defense in a Week 12 interconference showdown with the Chiefs.
White furnished six tackles (four solo), including one for loss and one quarterback hit, in the Buccaneers' 46-23 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
The second-year linebacker co-led the team in stops alongside position mate Lavonte David. White has at least Sunday's tackle tally in five consecutive contests, and the aggressive pass-rushing role he's afforded in coordinator Todd Bowles' scheme has already led to five sacks. White will look to keep up his stellar numbers in a matchup against a run-heavy Rams offense Week 11.
White posted 14 tackles (seven solo) in the Buccaneers' 38-3 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.
White was one of the few bright spots on either side of the ball in the loss, comfortably leading the team in tackles while posting double-digit stops for the third time in the last four games and fifth occasional overall this season. The second-year pro is now just nine tackles shy of his rookie-season tally of 91, which he accomplished over 13 games. White will look to produce similarly impressive numbers in a Week 10 battle against the Panthers that could include plenty of tackling opportunities against Carolina's talented backfield.
White posted seven tackles (five solo), including one sack, in the Buccaneers' 25-23 win over the Giants on Monday night.
The second-year linebacker couldn't quite replicate his stellar 11-tackle, three-sack showing from Week 7 against the Raiders, but White still shared the team lead in stops with multiple teammates while recording a sack for the third consecutive game. White also logged a season-high 74 snaps in the contest, and his IDP floor remains one of the best in the NFL as a key cog in coordinator Todd Bowles' defense.
White racked up 11 tackles (nine solo), including three sacks and an additional tackle for loss, while adding a forced fumble in the Buccaneers' 45-20 win over the Raiders on Sunday.
The second-year linebacker terrorized the Raiders offense, and Derek Carr in particular, all afternoon, posting a single-game career high in sacks while recording double-digit stops for the second straight week. White also forced his first fumble of the season for good measure, as he continued to bounce back from an atypical two-game slump in Weeks 4 and 5 during which he managed just seven combined stops. White will look to continue his current surge against the very porous Giants offensive line and the mistake-prone Daniel Jones in a Week 8 Monday night matchup.
White had 10 tackles (nine solo) and a sack during Sunday's 38-10 win over the Packers.
The Tampa Bay defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Packers all afternoon, and White led the unit in tackles. The 22-year-old had 14 stops over the previous three games, but in the first two games of the season, he had double-digit tackles. White offers fantastic IDP option at his best, but he's been inconsistent through the first six games.
White tallied three tackles (one solo) and was credited with half a sack in the Buccaneers' 20-19 loss to the Bears on Thursday night.
White's tackle numbers were atypically down for the second consecutive game, with his only saving grace from a fantasy perspective the half-sack of Nick Foles he was credited with. The second-year linebacker will look to get back to the prolific level of IDP production that saw him rack up 26 stops over his first two games when he sees the high-octane Packers offense in Week 6.
White posted four tackles (one solo) in the Buccaneers' 38-31 win over the Chargers on Sunday.
The second-year pro turned in a disappointing performance for fantasy managers rostering him in IDP formats, as his tackle total dropped for the second consecutive week and represented a season-low figure. Despite the disappointing day, White still has an abundance of upside in coordinator Todd Bowles' scheme, as he demonstrated when he racked up 26 stops over the first two games of the season. He could be in for a more productive performance in Thursday night's Week 5 matchup against the Bears, considering Chicago's offense may rely heavily on RB David Montgomery and the shorter-area passing game, the latter evidenced by Nick Foles' pedestrian average of 6.2 yards over his 71 attempts thus far.
White posted seven tackles (three solo) in the Buccaneers' 28-10 win over the Broncos on Sunday.
While he didn't make any impact plays in the form of forced turnovers, White still checked in second on the team in tackles and was an integral part of the Buccaneers holding the Broncos to 3.0 yards per carry. The second-year linebacker posted double-digit stops in the first two games of the season, so he boasts an impressive 33 tackles through three games and has also been credited with two pass breakups.
White registered 15 tackles (11 solo), including one for loss, and also recorded a defensed pass and a quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
The second-year linebacker found a way to one-up his sensational Week 1 effort against the Saints, one that saw him record 11 stops. White's tally Sunday paced the Buccaneers, and his performance over the first two weeks of the season seems to imply he's reacting and not doing as much thinking in his second year in coordinator Todd Bowles' defensive scheme.
