2013 Experience: 7th Season

IDP Fantasy Football Outlook: Goldson was a respectable DB3 option before both Willis and Bowman worked together in front of him a few years back in San Francisco. Now with the Buccaneers, Goldson should benefit as Mason Foster has had trouble staying in on sub-packages.

Goldson should be a relevant IDP option again and will probably come at a cheep price because of his fall out over recent years.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections

With the emergence of NaVorro Bowman at linebacker, Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner both lost starter value. Because San Francisco now has two elite inside linebackers, don’t view Goldson as anything more than a bench player than can be used in matchup situations or bye weeks.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

Dashon Goldson failed to backup his breakout 2009 season with another IDP starter-worthy performance in 2010 and it looks like he’s nothing more than a flair in the late rounds this year. While Goldson is back with the 49ers, the team added Donte Whitner as a strong-safety and that gives Goldson more than legitimate compitition for tackles in the backfield.

Overall I wasn’t pleased with Goldson’s attitude towards the 49ers initial offer as he tweeted a displeased comment publicly. In the end, I guess that’s negotiations but the 49ers clearly didn’t think enough of him to give him more than a one year deal and that was after Reggie Smith went down with an injury. Look for Goldson to be on the move after this season, and I would pass on him at your draft.

June 2011

Dashon Goldson failed to improve on his breakout numbers in 2009, as he became a full time starter for the 49ers. While Goldson is technically a free agent he is expected to re-sign with San Francisco and should continue to be a full time starter. Look to Goldson as a respectable late round selection for defensive back, as he could improve his numbers up to over 100 tackles as the 49ers figure to be on the field often.

I also have some concerns for them up front against the run as they are projected to lose nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin in free agency, which could help Goldson pickup more tackles in run support.

2010 Preview

I will never forget the Monday night game when Dashon Goldson ate the Cardinals offense for dinner last season. Watching him flipp Beanie Wells in the air while the rookie fumbled the football just shows you this safety can pack a punch. The 40ers moved rookie Taylor Mays to strong safety and will continue to use Goldson as a free safety this year. He should make for a solid IDP option once again.
