Summary

A legitimate star for the Bucs and fantasy owners, Lavonte David has been a revelation since entering the league. His sideline-to-sideline range, solid tackling and competency in coverage make him a force few offenses can live with. David racked up 120 solo tackles in 2014 and should easily reach that mark again in 2015, although the presence of Bruce Carter may mean he'll have some tackles poached. Regardless, David is a rare talent and a slam dunk LB1. (April 27)
