2017

2016

Alexander began wowing Bucs coaches at around this time last year and never looked back, starting at middle linebacker for the first 12 games of 2015 before serving a four-game suspension for PED use. Despite his rookie campaign being curtailed, the LSU standout was an IDP superstar, notching 93 tackles (59 solo), three sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, two interceptions and nine passes defensed. With new defensive coordinator Mike Smith's scheme reported to be even more aggressive than the one deployed by former head coach Lovie Smith in 2015, Alexander could be primed to offer outstanding fantasy returns in the coming season.

2015

Alexander will battle Danny Lansanah, who had a career year last season, for one of the team's starting linebacker positions. Given the advantage Lansanah has in terms of proven production, Alexander could benefit from a year of taking snaps as backup to the veteran.
