2024 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Tashaun Gipson in 2024. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
RANKS
$Signed a one-year, $2.9 million contract with the 49ers in March of 2023.
Starts 16 games for top defense
SSan Francisco 49ers
February 16, 2024
Gipson finished the 2023 regular season with 60 tackles (41 solo), 1.0 sacks and one interception across 16 starts with San Francisco.
ANALYSIS
Gipson maintained the starting role he earned in 2022 after beginning that season as a member of San Francisco's practice squad. The 12-year vet started 2023 as the team's free safety out of the gates, finishing with nearly identical defensive numbers to his resurgence from a year prior. Gipson (an unrestricted free agent) will now have the option to re-sign with San Francisco or parlay his recent success into a starter's contract with another club.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could reunite with Niners
SFree Agent
May 13, 2024
Gipson could return to the 49ers if he decides to continue his playing career, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
San Francisco is still in need of depth at safety, with Talanoa Hufanga's status for Week 1 uncertain as he recovers from ACL surgery. Gipson played 16 games and 926 defensive snaps for the 49ers last season, but the 33-year-old remains unsigned, and it's not clear if he intends to retire. Should Gipson elect to play another season, it wouldn't be a surprise if he signed later in the offseason and skipped having to go through the grind of a full training camp.

Gipson was brought on to be a depth piece for a thin 49ers secondary last season, but he ended up usurping Jimmie Ward as the starting free safety. The journeyman proved to be effective all season, posting 61 tackles while nabbing five interceptions. Gipson performed so well that the front office decided to bring him back as the starter for 2023 after letting the more expensive Ward walk in free agency.
For the second consecutive offseason, the Bears signed Gipson to a one-year contract. Under the first deal, he posted 68 tackles and two interceptions in 16 games. Entering his age-31 season, he's recorded at least 51 tackles in seven of the last eight years while playing on four different teams. In addition, he's posted seven or eight pass defenses in four straight seasons and totaled 10 interceptions during that span. Gipson shouldn't have trouble retaining a full-time role this year, making him a likely candidate to replicate his recent output.
Signed to a free-agent deal in the offseason, Gipson is expected to take over Chicago's starting strong safety spot vacated by Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Over the course of his career, Gipson typically is a lock for at least 50 tackles, and he also has picked off multiple passes in five of his last seven campaigns. Despite the expectation to start, he'll have to earn his role by beating out Deon Bush, which is likely but not guaranteed. If Gipson officially is declared the starter, he does have some upside that shouldn't be ignored in fantasy drafts.
Gipson has been remarkably durable, playing all 48 games over the last three seasons for the Jaguars. He brings a ton of experience to a secondary that has undergone a significant overhaul. Safeties Tyrann Mathieu (Chiefs) and Kareem Jackson (Broncos) bolted in free agency as did cornerback Kevin Johnson (Bills), so Gipson's experience will be valuable as the grouping gets acquainted. Experience, however, doesn't mean he'll be IDP-worthy. Gipson has averaged just 53 tackles and two interceptions over the last three seasons.
The 28-year-old safety has started all 32 games since joined the Jaguars as a free agent prior to the 2016 season, recording 105 tackles, nine pass breakups and five interceptions. Gipson has been a key member of the ball-hawking Jacksonville secondary, but averaging less than four tackles per game doesn't put him on the valuable end of fantasy safeties on a week-to-week basis. The Jaguars drafted Alabama safety Ronnie Harrison in the third round of April's draft, but he seems unlikely to significantly impact the veteran's defensive role in his rookie season.
With Johnathan Cyprien out of the mix, Gipson will serve as the Jaguars' unquestioned starter at free safety.
One of several high-profile free agent additions, Gipson will immediately fill a need in the secondary. The former Brown projects to start at free safety, enabling Johnathan Cyprien to play more of his natural, in-the-box style.
An undrafted free agent in 2012, Gipson has been one of the league's most productive safeties the last two years, particularly in coverage. Even in a season shortened by five games due to an MCL injury, Gipson intercepted six passes last year, giving him 11 interceptions (two returned for a touchdown) in his last 27 games. And with 147 tackles in that span, he's shown decent tackle production, as well. Playing for a Browns team that figures to struggle on offense, Gipson and the defense should see plenty of snaps this season.
Gipson is projected to be the Browns' starting free safety alongside the recently-acquired Donte Whitner in 2014. The soon-to-be 24-year-old collected five interceptions during his sophomore campaign in 2013, and stands to benefit from the addition of Whitner's experience to the secondary. Gipson also logged 95 combined tackles last season, and could be a useful IDP option if he continues to improve.
Gipson compiled 33 tackles, one pass defensed, and one interception in his rookie year. He started three games in 2012, but he looks to be the favorite to start at free safety this season and he could be in for a nice boost in production.
