Ready when pads come on

August 10, 2020
Vea (hand) will be ready for padded practices when they begin later in August, but he'll initially sport a club for added protection, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Vea underwent what was described as a minor procedure in late June on his hand, but the delay in the start of padded practices this summer will apparently buy him enough time to be ready Day 1. The mammoth defensive tackle once again is expected to be an integral part of a front seven that helped the Buccaneers defense rank tops in the NFL in rush yards per game allowed (73.8) in 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Vea is the proverbial roadblock in the middle of a defensive line that teams crave, and his 6-4, 347-pound frame projects to pay off in multiple ways this season. Unfortunately for Vea's IDP prospects, the fantasy benefits of his presence are likely to be reaped mostly by defensive teammates. Vea will assuredly prove a difficult load to budge in the running game, which should allow him to notch his fair share of tackles. Additionally, the double- and triple-teams that he'll draw should go a long way toward affording the proficient pass-rushing trio of Vinny Curry, Jason Pierre-Paul and Gerald McCoy a robust share of one-one matchups. While Vea certainly isn't devoid of ability to get to the quarterback - as his 9.5 career college sacks attest - he'll likely be tasked with stopping the run first and foremost during his rookie campaign.
