Summary

The former Giant was an upgrade for a Bucs defensive line that, prior to last season, had been desperately in need of a pass-rushing injection. Ayers, missing a couple of games along the way, provided a semblance of that and racked up 6.5 sacks to go along with 21 solo tackles. The team has a decent rotation along the defensive line, with William Gholston and Noah Spence ready to contribute, so Ayers' role might be more rotational. As such, his fantasy upside is limited.
