2018 Fantasy Outlook
Beckwith's rookie season began with an impressive training camp in which the LSU product defied the odds - he secured a starting job despite being less than a year removed from November 2016 ACL surgery. However, after compiling 41 tackles over his first five games, Beckwith averaged just under three stops per contest the rest of the way while manning a role on the strong side. His IDP outlook is nevertheless optimistic heading into 2018, considering Beckwith should be more effective with a year of NFL experience under his belt and nearly two years removed from the aforementioned injury. Furthermore, the addition of super-sized Vita Vea up front should also help open up more playmaking opportunities for all three of the Bucs' linebackers. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
The Buccaneers have been stashing Beckwith on the Non-Football Injury list all season after he fractured his ankle during a car accident in the spring. Koetter's announcement means that the linebacker will now revert to injured reserve and turn his focus towars recovering in time to participate in OTAs.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Beckwith fell to the third round of the 2017 draft due to a November 2016 ACL tear, but was a likely first-round selection had he not been injured. The LSU alum racked up 263 tackles (124 solo), including 24.5 for loss, in 44 games with the Tigers. He added 7.5 sacks, eight passes defensed, one pick-six, three fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles while developing a well-earned reputation as a vicious hitter. At 6-2, 243-pounds, Beckwith could realistically step into the starting lineup at strongside linebacker with an impressive training camp and preseason, given that veteran Daryl Smith isn't expected to return and unproven 2016 sixth-round pick Devante Bond, who missed his rookie season with a hamstring injury, currently sits atop the depth chart.

October 12, 2018
Beckwith (ankle), who was placed on the Non-Football Injury/reserve list Sept. 1 due to an offseason automobile accident, remains without a firm timetable for return, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "I'm not sure if he'll be able to practice next week," said head coach Dirk Koetter. "I think we've got to remember Kendell suffered a serious injury. Although it was a non-football injury, it was serious, and he had a serious surgery. He is fighting hard to make it back. I'm not sure if he'll be quite ready next week to practice."
