49ers | Pierre Garcon placed on IR

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 13:36:13 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) was officially placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Nov. 4. The team also activated DE Ronald Blair (hand) from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Tip: Marquise Goodwin and Aldrick Robinson should receive more targets with Garcon out for the season. Goodwin has performed well so far this season and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver against favorable matchups. Robinson can be owned in deeper leagues but probably will not be in the starting lineup much.

49ers | Pierre Garcon headed to IR

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 17:33:05 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) will be placed on injured reserve, according to general manager John Lynch. This will end Garcon's first season in San Francisco.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was having a fine year with the 49ers, ending up with 40 catches for 500 yards in eight games, though he also had no touchdowns. Marquise Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson and Trent Taylor stand to benefit the most in his absence but given the woeful state of San Francisco's offense with rookie C.J. Beathard at quarterback, no wideout is worth pursuing on the 49ers.

49ers | Pierre Garcon sits out practice again

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 16:40:34 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) sat out practice for the second consecutive day Thursday, Nov. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon barely played in the second half of last week's contest against the Eagles after injuring his neck, so his lack of practice time thus far suggests he's in real danger of missing Week 9. Even if he does suit up, he's not a strong option, as rookie C.J. Beathard has been very unimpressive since taking over as the starting quarterback.

49ers | Pierre Garcon sits out Wednesday

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 15:44:25 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon suffered the injury in Week 8, so owners will need to check on his status later in the week. He has been targeted at least eight times in four of the last six games but has been held to under 50 yards in each of the last two games. He can be a flex option in leagues this week if he plays.

49ers | Pierre Garcon expects to play Week 9

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 19:39:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) said Sunday, Oct. 29, that he expects to play in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon checked out with a neck ailment, leaving Trent Taylor, Marquise Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson and Kendrick Bourne as the wideouts. Only Taylor managed to record any stats. Garcon is a solid WR4 in PPR fantasy formats when healthy.

49ers | Pierre Garcon injures neck

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 12:35:01 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) suffered a neck injury in Week 8 and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Garcon will miss any more time because of the injury. Garcon has been a solid fantasy option for owners and should be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he is able to play in the next game.

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has received 30 targets over the last three weeks and will remain a focal point in the passing game moving forward. He will be facing a Philadelphia Eagles pass defense that has struggled at times this season and can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 16:57:47 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon appeared to have solid chemistry with C.J. Beathard and caught five of his seven targets. He will be facing a solid Philadelphia Eagles defense this week but can still be a No. 3 fantasy receiver in most fantasy leagues.

49ers | Pierre Garcon gets day to rest

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 16:45:48 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (rest) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 25, as he was given a veteran's day to rest.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has managed at least four receptions in each of his past five outings, serving as a solid WR3 or flex fantasy option in PPR formats. He has slightly lesser value in standard leagues since he hasn't found the end zone yet.

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 19:20:21 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon posted five grabs for 49 yards with seven targets in Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon hasn't found the end zone in seven outings this season, but he has three or more receptions in each of his games while posting 49 or more yards in each of the past three. He remains a useful WR4 in most PPR formats heading into Week 8 in Philadelphia.

49ers | Pierre Garcon ready for Week 7

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 15:39:23 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury related) practice in full Friday, Oct. 20, and is no longer on the injury report heading into Week 7 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon wasn't doing all that much with Brian Hoyer under center, now the team will be using the young C.J. Beathard. It doesn't bode well for the fantasy appeal of Garcon.

49ers | Pierre Garcon back at practice

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 16:18:52 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon will be working with a new starting quarterback this week but should continue to have a big role in the passing game. He has been targeted at least 10 times in four of the six games this season and can be considered a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

49ers | Pierre Garcon doesn't practice

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 16:25:36 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury related) did not practice Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Fantasy Tip: It was likely a day off for the 49ers' veteran wide receiver. The quarterback change from Brian Hoyer to C.J. Beathard is somewhat worrisome for Garcon since Hoyer targeted him so frequently, but Garcon remains far and away San Francisco's best passing threat. Don't take him out of the WR2 conversation.

49ers | Modest line for Pierre Garcon

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 18:33:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon caught five of his 12 targets for 55 yards in a 26-24 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon didn't do a whole lot despite a season-high 12 targets, and the move to C.J. Beathard at quarterback may have played a role. The good news is he remained the go-to target in the passing attack despite the quarterback change. Consider him a WR3 candidate against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7, especially in PPR formats.

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has been a solid fantasy option for owners this season and will be facing a banged-up Washington Redskins secondary this week. He can be a solid No. 3 receiver for owners this week.

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:47:51 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon (non-injury related) was rested for practice Wednesday, Oct. 11.

49ers | Pierre Garcon targeted 11 times

Sun, 08 Oct 2017 19:48:59 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon racked up eight receptions for 94 yards with 11 targets in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts, his original team.

Fantasy Tip: An odd trend is developing for Garcon. In even-numbered weeks, he is averaging 3.5 catches per game while averaging 31.0 receiving yards. In odd-numbered weeks, he is averaging 7.0 catches per game with 105.7 yards per game. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, if the trend continues, he'll struggle in Week 6 on the road against his another one of his former teams, the Redskins.

49ers | Pierre Garcon racks up four catches

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 20:27:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon posted four catches for 36 yards on eight targets in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon exploded for seven grabs and 142 yards last week against the Rams, but took a giant step back. He was had to fight with Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson for the eye of Brian Hoyer in this one. Garcon remains nothing more than a low-end WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against the Colts on the road.

49ers | Pierre Garcon delivers in loss

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 21:05:11 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with seven catches on 10 targets for a game-high 142 yards in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon continues to be Brian Hoyer's go-to option, and he has piled up 25 targets and 249 yards in three games. He should be safe to deploy as a WR3 going forward, especially in PPR formats.

49ers | Pierre Garcon held in check

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:05:14 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with three catches for 26 yards in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon actually led the team in receiving for the second week in a row, and he is the closest thing San Francisco has to a dependable option in the passing game. He is a matchup-dependent play, but he has WR3 potential against the Rams in Week 3, especially in PPR formats.

49ers | Pierre Garcon leads way for Niners

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:49:48 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon posted six grabs with game-highs of 81 yards and 10 targets in Week 1 against Carolina.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a pretty nice rapport with Brian Hoyer, serving as the most effective connection on the team. They'll look to build on the momentum in Week 2, but the 49ers face a tough road matchup against the Seahawks.

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with six catches on seven targets for 64 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon is the top option in the San Francisco passing attack, so he should plenty of targets all season long. Don't sleep on Garcon as a volume-based WR3, especially in PPR formats.

Redskins | Josh Doctson the new Pierre Garcon

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 17:14:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will be used in the Z receiver role to start the season, head coach Jay Gruden said. Last year, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon occupied the Z receiver role for the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson is unproven coming off an Achilles' injury that ruined his rookie campaign, but the former first-round pick has more than enough upside to grab as a WR5.

49ers | San Francisco brings aboard Pierre Garcon

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 16:05:06 -0800

Free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) signed a five-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: From the surface, this looks like a downgrade for Garcon's fantasy outlook, as he'll be joining a much inferior offense compared to the one he played with in Washington, but as a 49er, he's easily their best receiver and should see the most targets. Plus, Brian Hoyer could easily provide better quarterback play than what San Francisco had last year, so Garcon just may hang in there with WR3 prospects.

49ers | Pierre Garcon close to deal with 49ers

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 08:21:56 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is close to a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, which would pay him $16 million in the first year, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was solid with a 79-1,041-3 line last year. He doesn't jump off the page at you, but he's a midrange PPR receiver. Kyle Shanahan was his offensive coordinator in 2013, Garcon's best year, when he had 113 catches for 1,346 yards. He'll be a high-end WR3 in fantasy.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is being pursued by the San Francisco 49ers. He's familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's system.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a 79-1,041-3 solid showing last year. He doesn't jump off the page at you, but he's a midrange PPR receiver.

Redskins | Washington not talking to Pierre Garcon

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 11:48:00 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) hasn't "heard a word" from the Washington Redskins in regards to signing him to a deal prior to the start of free agency.

Fantasy Tip: There are any number of reasons as to why Washington hasn't reached out, the most likely of which is the chaos taking place in the Redskins' front office at the moment. Head coach Jay Gruden said last week he is comfortable with his receiving corps should Garcon and DeSean Jackson leave, and it is looking more and more like that will end up being the case. Even if Garcon ends up signing with a team that will allow him to be the clear No. 1 option, he'll be hard-pressed to be much more than a fantasy WR3.

Redskins | Washington to talk to own FAs at combine

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 12:28:12 -0800

The Washington Redskins have yet to engage in talks with any of their players with expiring contracts - a list that includes impending free agents WR Pierre Garcon, WR DeSean Jackson, TE Vernon Davis, DE Chris Baker. However, multiple sources report the Redskins expect to meet with the representatives of their impending free agents at the NFL Scouting Combine next week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a common practice for front office personnel and player reps to discuss contracts at the combine, although Washington is making an already very long week even longer by handling its business in this manner. Garcon and Jackson are each expected to command at least $9 million in their next contracts, so both players could be on different teams next season. It's a virtual certainty at least one will not come back.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon could fetch $9 million in FA

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 17:00:10 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to receive offers in the neighborhood of $9 million per year, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: The Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams expected to be among the most interested. The price tag would suggest teams view him as a No. 1 receiver, but his best fit would be as a No. 2. It's going to take a bit of a perfect storm in order to break the bank, and he's likely to be no more than a fantasy WR4 regardless of where he lands.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon a hot commodity

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 18:17:23 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be pursued by the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon can still do damage underneath as a possession receiver, and he could be a WR3 in PPR formats if he lands with a decent offense. If he is stuck with a rookie quarterback, he should be viewed more as a WR4.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon wants to remain a Redskin

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 15:45:15 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he wants to remain with the team next season.

Fantasy Tip: He also wants to get paid, as he should, after registering his fourth straight season with at least 68 receptions and his first 1,000-yard campaign since 2013. Not only that, Garcon has proven to be very durable, having played in all 16 games in four of his five seasons with Washington. However, the Redskins are notorious for lowballing impending free agents, and if they're not careful, he could wind up with a new club in 2017. At least a handful of teams should be interested.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon hasn't talked to Redskins

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 07:36:27 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) still hasn't talked with the Redskins as of Tuesday, Feb. 7, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a solid 79-1,041-3 campaign in 2016. He turns 31 in August, but there appears to be tread left on the tires. He's a WR3 or a WR4 in fantasy depending on where he lands.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon says he is not possession WR

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 11:58:30 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he does not want to be called a possession receiver because he can do more than what the Redskins asked him to do in 2016. "I definitely want people to stop thinking I'm a possession receiver because they gave me a job to do," Garcon said. "That doesn't mean I can't go deep and I can't run fast, because I ran fast and went deep this year more than I probably ever did. Every year is different from the playcalling. But I want people to stop thinking that I'm a slow guy, and I'm not slowing down anytime soon."

Fantasy Tip: Garcon will be a free agent this offseason and should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He finished the 2016 season with 79 catches for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. Garcon should have a good chance to be a starter for a team next season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

Redskins | 'Solid chance' Pierre Garcon does not return

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 09:30:27 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is unlikely to return for less than the $7.6 million he earned this season, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: That kind of stance usually indicates the player's agent has been able to find enough potential bidders, so a parting of ways appears likely. Then again, the first-round selection of Josh Doctson in the draft last spring pretty much sealed his fate anyway. Garcon showed he is still a very capable No. 2 receiver in the NFL and should be open to find a team willing to meet his asking price this spring.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon finishes for 94 yards

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 13:46:06 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon caught four passes for 92 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has been a reliable option for owners this season and has posted at least 50 yards in six of his last seven games. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game and should be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted seven grabs for 78 yards in the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers Monday, Dec. 19, and he was targeted a game-high 11 times.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was credited with his first drop of the season, but he was still very productive. He remains a solid WR3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.
