Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Stands out in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith totaled five tackles (all solo) including two for loss, and a pass defensed in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

The rookie acquitted himself impressively in his debut as the starting strong-side linebacker and then made a seamless transition to the middle when Kwon Alexander (hamstring) exited the contest. Beckwith ended up playing on 91.0 percent (58 snaps) of the team's defensive snaps and could be poised to man the Mike linebacker position again in Week 3 against the Vikings if Alexander is unable to return for the contest.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Leads team in stops Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David totaled nine tackles (eight solo), including one for loss, and also recovered a fumble in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

The sight of David at the top of the defensive stat sheet isn't necessarily surprising, yet it was actually a rare sight last season, his first in defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme. Kwon Alexander's exit with a hamstring injury Sunday certainly helped David rack up more tackle opportunities, but the increased comfortable level he'd displayed this past summer in advance of his second year in the system does appear to have been a harbinger of what was to come. David seemed to be back to his old, instinctive self during the impressive Week 2 effort and appears primed to reclaim his standing as a top IDP option this season.

Buccaneers' Nick Folk: Perfect on field goals in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Folk connected on field goals of 42, 50 and 23 yards and made two of three extra-point attempts in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

The veteran kicker delivered as expected, providing a tangible reminder of why he quickly prevailed in the preseason kicking competition between him and Roberto Aguayo. Folk showed impressive leg on second-quarter 50-yarder and a missed extra-point attempt following Robert McClain's pick-six served as his only blemish on the day. Folk appears primed for plenty of scoring opportunities this season due to the Bucs' improved offense.

Buccaneers' Alan Cross: Logs reception in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cross corralled his only target for six yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

The reserve tight end was in on 16 offensive snaps and managed to get on the stat sheet in addition to serving as a blocker in the running game. Cross' level of production Sunday is likely representative of the type of modest numbers he'll provide on a weekly basis this season.

Buccaneers' O.J. Howard: Makes one reception in pro debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard brought in one of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 29-7 win over the Bears.

The 2017 first-round pick couldn't make much of an impact on the stat sheet, but that was likely a product of a game script that saw the Bucs already holding a commanding 26-0 lead by halftime. Howard's 46 snaps was a much more favorable number, however, as he notably outpaced position mate and co-starter Cameron Brate by eight plays. While the exact amount of usage both players will receive will naturally fluctuate week-to-week, Howard is expected to be given every opportunity to validate his draft status. He'll look to translate his playing time into more production in a Week 3 road tilt against the Vikings.
