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.

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.
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.
Fri, 17 Oct 2014 06:47:07 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon needs more touches, according to head coach Jay Gruden. He has eight catches in the last three games. Garcon has just one catch out of six third-down targets this season.
Fantasy Tip: Garcon ($6,500; 13% of your cap) is reasonably priced as a solid WR2 on FantasyScore this week.
Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:11:08 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the team has plenty of confidence in QB Kirk Cousins despite the team's four-game losing streak in which Cousins has struggled mightily at times. "He's just taking in a lot of stuff right now, but once he gets through this, honestly, he'll be good to go," said Garcon. Cousins has 18 touchdowns, 18 interceptions and five fumbles in 13 career games. Cousins is expected to start in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.
Fantasy Tip: Cousins will cost $7,000 (14.0% of cap) at FantasyScore this week. Although he has a nice matchup against the Tennessee Titans, it's hard to place too much trust in him for your lineups.
Mon, 06 Oct 2014 21:17:15 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon had two catches for 23 yards on three targets Monday, Oct. 2. He has caught two passes or less in three of his five games this season.
Fantasy Tip: A year after leading the NFL with 113 catches, Garcon has been irrelevant at times this season. The chemistry between he and Kirk Cousins could be an issue, but whatever the reason, Garcon is tough to trust at FantasyScore right now.
Sat, 04 Oct 2014 11:23:05 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has caught 24 passes on 38 targets through four games. The 38 targets are sixth most in the league while the 24 catches are good enough for eighth most.
Fantasy Tip: That being said, Garcon is only WR26 in non-PPR leagues and WR21 in PPR leagues. He's not gaining many yards when he does catch the ball and he's only scored once. He's a risky option on FantasyScore at$7,000 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:42:45 -0700
Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring) could return to practice Wednesday, July 30, after suffering a minor hamstring injury in practice. "I'll be good," Garcon said. "No need to really rush it, or trying put everything to the wall right now. It is the first week of training camp."
Fantasy Tip: Not a surprise that the team would be cautious with Garcon this early in camp. This does not sound like something to be concerned with.
Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:55:25 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (hamstring) left practice Monday, July 28, with a slight hamstring strain.
Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned, but this seems extremely minor and precautionary.
Thu, 17 Jul 2014 19:46:37 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Andre Roberts has admitted since the signing of WR DeSean Jackson that he might have opted to go elsewhere had he known Jackson would be signed. However, Roberts might be one of the biggest beneficiaries of having WRs Pierre Garcon and Jackson, as well as TE Jordan Reed, in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: Roberts might be undrafted in most fantasy formats, but he could be an early-season waiver wire gem if he gets off to a good start and the Washington offense clicks out of the gate.
Thu, 05 Jun 2014 11:40:52 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season. "That's our goal -- to unseat (Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall)," Garcon said. "But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position."
Wed, 02 Apr 2014 12:35:21 -0700

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:13:13 -0700

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 10:22:47 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said it is obvious that QB Robert Griffin III (knee) is not 100 percent at this time and that he is a different player than he was last season. "He's not fully healthy, obviously," Garcon said. "He's running a little bit more. But last year's RGIII was a lot different from this year's RG because of his knee. It's not surprising. We've been talking about it the whole offseason. It's the same question every day on Monday. We can find something else to talk about."
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 13:33:58 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said QB Robert Griffin III (knee) hasn't been his usual self in the first two weeks of the season. "Robert obviously can't run as fast as he did last year because of his knee brace and his knee," Garcon said. "But it's the same offense, to be honest with you. It's nothing different. It hasn't changed at all." Griffin has run the ball only nine times in the first two games, but none were designed runs or in the zone read option. Five or more rushers have been sent in at Griffin by the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers 42 percent of the time in these last two weeks. Last year, teams only sent five or more rushers on 21 percent of their snaps.

Washington Redskins WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson have appeared to lock up spots on the final roster.
Fantasy Tip: Garcon is the team's top receiver and should be considered as a solid to low-end No. 2 fantasy wide receiver this season. Morgan and Moss could be late-round options in deeper leagues, but there probably be higher upside players available.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 15:59:46 -0700

The Washingotn Redskins have their top four receiver spots set with WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson at the top of the depth chart.

Stallworth has fallen behind some due to a hamstring injury suffered Friday, July 26. WRs Devery Henderson and Dezmon Briscoe are also in the mix for jobs.

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 09:16:42 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, toe) said his toe is feeling good, and that he is still deciding on a special shoe to provide extra cushion and support.

Thu, 06 Jun 2013 10:23:31 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, foot) said he will be ready for Week 1. "If there was a game tomorrow, I would be able to play," Garcon said about his recovery from shoulder surgery. "We are just taking precautions to make sure it heals properly." He also said the torn ligament in his right foot is improving. He will be wearing special shoes to help him out in that area.
Fantasy Tip: Injuries to Garcon and Robert Griffin III (knee) will need to be monitored during training camp, but if both are fully healthy in Week 1, they should be an explosive duo. Garcon will likely be more valuable in standard-scoring formats as a No. 2 wideout.
Fri, 31 May 2013 06:27:25 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, foot) said recovery from offseason shoulder surgery is going well and does not expect it to be a problem during the regular season. He said his recovery from a foot injury is going well but will continue to monitor the injury. Garcon decided on to get surgery on his foot because he was told by doctors that they are not sure a procedure would solve the problem.
Fantasy Tip: Garcon likely will be a big part of the offense this season if he and QB Robert Griffin III (knee) are healthy, but there is a chance the foot injury could linger into the season. Garcon could be an every-week starter if everyone is healthy but could also be a flex option each week.
Thu, 30 May 2013 14:38:51 -0700
Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III (knee) has begun throwing, planting his feet, and taking seven-step drops. Griffin threw to WR Pierre Garcon, TE Fred Davis and RB Roy Helu. "Those are guys we'll lean heavily on in the season," Griffin said. "I'll build chemistry with them and get a feel for how Jordan and Chris play and continue to work with Fred and get back with Pierre. He's the guy… I want to make sure me and him are on the same page. He's a big-play receiver who can do a lot of things. It's good to see him back healthy and doing a lot of stuff."
Fantasy Tip: The good news continues to roll in for Griffin as he continues to work his way back from the knee issue. While there is still a long way to go, the real test will come as training camp and preseason games approach. Continue to monitor his statues, but fantasy football players should be

Thu, 23 May 2013 13:20:42 -0700
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder) underwent minor labrum surgery in January but has fully recovered. He was held out of team drills during organized team activities Thursday, May 23, as a precaution.
Fantasy Tip: The team has the option to take things slow with Garcon because the workouts are voluntary. Since Garcon has fully recovered from the surgery, he should be fine for the start of training camp. Garcon could be an every-week starter if QB Robert Griffin III (knee) is healthy but could also be a flex option most weeks. He probably will have more value in standard leagues as opposed to point-per-reception leagues.
Thu, 11 Apr 2013 08:50:53 -0700

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 17:05:23 -0800
Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (foot) is still debating whether to have surgery on his foot, but is leaning towards resting the foot. Garcon should make a final decision in the coming weeks.

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 06:54:11 -0800
