    David logged seven tackles (two solo) in the Buccaneers' 20-14 win over the Panthers on Thursday.

    Impact

    David came through with his second seven-tackle tally in as many games to open the new season, although he played a complementary role on a greater percentage of those stops than usual. The veteran linebacker seems to have quickly hit his stride in coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme and has also allowed just one completion over the first four attempts that have come his way while in primary coverage over the first two games.

    News

    David recorded seven tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed in the Buccaneers' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.

    Impact

    David had limited experience with coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme this summer, as an early-August procedure to address a torn meniscus curtailed his training camp and wiped out his entire preseason. However, the veteran linebacker was ready to roll for the opener and didn't miss a beat, checking in second in tackles on the afternoon to safety Jordan Whitehead. Fantasy managers holding David in IDP leagues have to be encouraged by the prospect of what the 29-year-old might be capable of the more game reps he gets in the new defense.
