RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Goldson totaled just 66 tackles in 2012, and just 64 in 2011, but those low numbers were primarily the result of playing center field for the 49ers. Goldson should be closer to the action in Tampa Bay. This is particularly true given he's leaving behind a fairly run-heavy NFC West for an NFC South division featuring Drew Brees, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton. Ronde Barber totaled 92 tackles and four interceptions while playing across from safety Mark Barron last year, so Goldson should have a legitimate chance to approach triple-digit tackles, like he did when he posted 94 tackles in 2009.

2012

Despite playing in a highly effective defense on a team whose offense had the fifth-highest time of possession last year, Goldson made the most of his modest snap count and finished the year with 67 tackles (55 solo) and six interceptions in just 14 games. If you include his two playoff games, in fact, you get a 16-game total of 83 tackles (70 solo) and seven interceptions, as well as 12 passes defended. Given that he posted those numbers despite a less than ideal situation for IDP production, it's difficult to doubt Goldson's ability produce as an IDP heading into 2012. He shouldn't change much as a player, and the circumstances around him realistically can only get better.

2011

Goldson's 80-tackle, one-interception season in 2010 was largely a disappointment, especially when you consider how he totaled 94 tackles and four interceptions in 2009. If he bounces back to his 2009-level production this year, though, Goldson figures to be a decent IDP bargain in some leagues. Heíll likely remain unchallenged as a starter for San Francisco, and it looks like last yearís numbers might be the worst-case scenario for him. His ceiling isnít especially high, but considering how late he might be available, he has more bargain potential than most this year.

2010

In his first season as a starter, Goldson rocketed to the top of the IDP rankings with a combination of quarterback pressure (two sacks), ball-hawking (four INTs), big plays (three forced fumbles) and a healthy number of stops (94 tackles). Heíll be back as the Ninersí starting free safety in 2010 and should be able to build on last seasonís breakout performance in an improving defense.

2009

Goldson will start at free safety.
