Redskins | Pierre Garcon working with QB

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:07:35 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has been participating in extra work with QB Robert Griffin III to make sure they are on the same page when the season starts.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a bit of a disappointing 2014 season with 752 yards and three touchdowns and is looking to build a better chemistry with Griffin. Garcon should see a solid amount of targets this season and could be a middle- to late-round option depending on the league.

Redskins | Robert Griffin III throwing well

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 18:21:26 -0700

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III hit WR Rashad Ross and WR Pierre Garcon in stride on deep balls in practice Saturday, Aug. 15, and he connected with WR Evan Spencer in the red zone.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin may never recapture the form he showed as a rookie, but he is still has enough potential to gamble on as a high-end QB2.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon in contract year?

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 16:50:05 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be in a contract year in 2015. He will cost $10.25 million against the salary cap next season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon needs to step up his production in order to justify that monetary figure. He'll probably have more value in PPR leagues, but should only be drafted as a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon may have bigger role

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 11:13:25 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be featured more often in the passing game this season based on the offseason workouts. Garcon often lined up to the right of the quarterback during the workouts even though he has been used mostly on the left side. Head coach Jay Gruden said he was impressed with Garcon's work this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon saw a significant drop in his receiving yards last season from 1,346 in 2013 to 752 in 2014. Garcon could be more involved in the passing game if the team has stability at the quarterback position. Garcon could be an option in the middle to late rounds of most fantasy drafts this season.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon to be more involved

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 14:39:29 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is being incorporated more into Washington's offense this year, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon will still be second fiddle among the Redskins' wide receivers to DeSean Jackson, but he potentially being more involved is encouraging. He still shouldn't be regarded as more than a WR4.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon switches sides

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 07:00:57 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon ran routes as the "Z" receiver instead of the "X" receiver Wednesday, June 3. This means Garcon lines up split out on the right instead of the left. WR DeSean Jackson was the "X" receiver, and WRs Andre Roberts and Jamison Crowder rotated as the slot receiver.

Fantasy Tip: D-Jax is a midrange WR2 in fantasy, but he loses some appeal in PPR leagues. He came back to his normal 56-catch range after busting out with 82 receptions in 2013. Garcon should be more involved this season, but it's hard to take him as anything more than a low-end WR3 in PPR formats.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon to see more targets?

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 19:45:07 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon's production slipped last year largely because of instability at the quarterback position, according to head coach Jay Gruden, and Gruden said that he plans to have Garcon's numbers go "back up" in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: While the idea is nice in theory, there is no guarantee that there will be stability under center in Washington this season either, and the presence of DeSean Jackson makes it very unlikely that Garcon will ever duplicate his 113-catch season from 2013. Draft him as a WR3.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon in 'Skins' plans

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 11:54:09 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon would save the team a lot of money if he were to be cut, but head coach Jay Gruden said Garcon is still in the team's plans.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon disappeared for large stretches last year and was a thorough disappointment for those that drafted him. He had only 68 catches for 752 yards and three touchdowns, and Robert Griffin's injuries and poor play had a big hand in Garcon's struggles. With RG3 returning as the starter in 2015, hopefully Garcon will rebound, but he's no sure thing. Consider him more of a WR3 with a chance for more on draft day.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon may have to restructure

Sat, 07 Feb 2015 15:42:28 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be asked to restructure his contract this offseason to lower his $9.7 million salary cap hit in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had an awful year with the quarterback carousel that ensued in 2014. He'll turn 29 this season and should still have some left in the tank, but he'll likely be a low-end WR3 or a high-end WR4 on draft day.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon needs ball more

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 12:22:44 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon needs to get the ball more in space so he can make big plays, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon saw his highest single-game target total (9) since late September with Colt McCoy starting again in Week 13, but still caught just three passes for nine yards. Garcon isn't worth starting in any format until he can bounce back from the slump he's in.
