Buccaneers' Robert Ayers: Pair of tackles in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ayers (concussion) posted two solo tackles -- one for loss -- in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions.

The veteran defensive end returned from his two-game absence and managed at least two tackles for the sixth straight game. Ayers is currently posting his lowest sack total (2.0) since his 2012 campaign in Denver, but his pair of stops against the Lions allowed him to eclipse the 29 tackles he'd amassed in his debut campaign with the Buccaneers in 2016.

Buccaneers' Brent Grimes: Snags third pick of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grimes posted three tackles (two solo) and recorded his third interception of the season in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions.

The veteran defensive back was part of a secondary that allowed Matthew Stafford to rack up 381 passing yards, but he was able to grab his third interception of the season in the second quarter on a deep throw intended for Kenny Golladay. Grimes has logged all three picks in the last seven games, and one more interception over the final three contests would give him at least four for five consecutive seasons.

Buccaneers' Kwon Alexander: Boosts tackle numbers in Week 14 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Alexander managed 12 tackles (seven solo) -- including two for loss -- in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions.

After five straight games with double-digit stops, Alexander posted a season-high tackle tally. The third-year linebacker also equaled a season best by making two of those tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Despite having missed nearly five full games due to a hamstring injury earlier in the campaign, Alexander could still make his way to a second straight 100-tackle season if he's able to compile 35 over the Buccaneers' final three contests.

Buccaneers' Lavonte David: Racks up 14 tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

David compiled 14 tackles (13 solo) in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the Lions and also recovered a fumble.

David equaled the season high in stops he'd posted back in Week 7 against the Bills. The 27-year-old defensive maven has posted no fewer than six stops in six consecutive contests, and he needs just 15 tackles over the last three games to reach the century mark in that category for a fifth time in his six-year career.

Buccaneers' Riley Bullough: Promoted to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bullough was promoted from the Bucs' practice squad to their active roster Tuesday, Scott Smith of Fox 13 reports.

Bullough was cut by the team prior to the regular season kicking off. The rookie will now get an opportunity to make an impression with the club as a depth linebacker, as well as a special teams contributor.
