RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
In his first two seasons with the 49ers, Tartt has started as a backup, only to finish the year as a starter due to injuries. The song remains the same in 2017 with Eric Reid expected to start at strong safety and Jimmie Ward moving back to his natural spot at free safety, leaving the 2015 second-round draft pick to be used situationally in the secondary as well as on special teams. Both Reid and Ward have justifiably earned their "injury-prone" labels, though, so Tartt could end up starting again at some point this season while gaining IDP value as a source of tackles.
The 2015 second-round pick started his rookie campaign as a backup, but he was forced into action when Antoine Bethea went down with a shoulder injury mid-season. He ended the campaign with 65 tackles and an interception, but 53 of those tackles came in nine games when he began filling in for Bethea. With the latter starting the 2016 healthy, Tartt will move back into a backup role and be the first safety called upon should any of the starters go down to injury.
Tartt is a physical specimen, but he will find it hard to see much playing time in his rookie season barring an injury to either Eric Reid or Antoine Bethea.
