Week 17 @ Carolina Panthers
Rushing Allowed: 111 yards, 3 TD
Passing Allowed: 293 yards, 2 TD
Total: 404 yards, 5 TD
Points Allowed: 38
Forced Turnovers: 2 FR
Total Fantasy Score: 8 points
Top Individual Score: Lavonte David – 28 points (12 Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 FF, 2 FR)
Lavonte David really turned things up after starting off the season a little slow. It would lead to his being named to his first Pro-Bowl of his career. He also became the team’s leading fantasy scorer and is without a doubt set to be one of the most coveted linebackers when fantasy owners draft before the 2016 season.
The real-life Buccaneers however, ended on a much lower note with four straight losses and six straight games scoring fewer than 10 fantasy points as a defensive unit.
The defense took the blame for getting head coach Lovie Smith fired and will undoubtedly be on the lower end of draft priorities when owners go to the boards.
