Redskins | Jamison Crowder to play slot

Tue, 17 May 2016 17:57:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder will serve as the Redskins' primary slot receiver in 2016, with WRs Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson and Ryan Grant also capable of playing in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson and Doctson currently have the most fantasy appeal in Washington, but don't completely disregard Garcon, either. Crowder is a sneaky sleeper candidate after tallying 59 catches for 604 yards and two touchdowns in his rookie season, but don't view him as more than a WR5 at best in the Redskins' packed wide receiver corps.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to start eventually?

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:04:27 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson could overtake either WRs Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson in the starting lineup at some point in 2016, in the opinion of Rich Tandler of realredskins.com.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon would be more likely to yield playing time to Doctson, and, of course, all three will see the field at the same time on occasion. Doctson is one of the more promising rookies this year and should be drafted as a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4.

Redskins | Josh Doctson will play outside

Wed, 04 May 2016 16:58:03 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will start out as an outside receiver, playing behind WRs DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, according to offensive coordinator Sean McVay. McVay and head coach Jay Gruden see similarities between Doctson and Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green. "I think that's a great comparison, because you look at a taller, leaner player with great body control and excellent ball skills," McVay said.

Fantasy Tip: It may take some time for Doctons to acclimate to the professional level, but he definitely has a role to play with the Redskins. He could be more of a downfield threat, like a poor man's DeSean Jackson. For now, consider Doctson a WR4 in fantasy land.

Redskins | Washington to keep Pierre Garcon?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 11:26:12 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be retained and play out the last year of his contract in Washington, according to Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington.com.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon is coming off a quietly productive year in which he caught 72 passes for 777 yards and six touchdowns -- all improvements from 2014. Jordan Reed and DeSean Jackson would obviously cut into his production again, but Garcon should still be viewed as a WR3 if he stays with the Redskins.

Redskins | Washington WRs dilemma ahead?

Tue, 12 Jan 2016 12:03:26 -0800

Washington Redskins WR DeSean Jackson is due $3.75 million and WR Pierre Garcon $7.6 million in 2016 -- the final year in each of their contracts. Each receiver is entering their age-29 season.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson dealt with a hamstring injury for most of the first half of 2015 and was limited to 30 catches -- his worst in eight NFL seasons. Garcon has evolved into much more of a possession receiver for Washington since posting a career-high 113 catches in 2013. With TE Jordan Reed taking on more of a starring role for the Redskins this year and WR Jamison Crowder showing well in his rookie year, the team could opt to move on from Jackson and Garcon at the end of the 2016 season.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon snags five balls

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 18:42:54 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted five receptions for 70 yards in the NFC Wild Card Game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 10. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon didn't have a giant season by any stretch, but he finished up strong with three touchdowns over his final three regular season games. With 777 yards and six touchdowns, he was a serviceable WR3/4 or flex option more often than not. That will be his role again in 2016 in most fantasy formats.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon streaking

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 20:24:19 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon faces the Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round of the playoffs Sunday, Jan. 10, and he caught a touchdown in each of the final three games of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) hasn't had a 100-yard receiving game all year, and he has managed to top 60 yards just four times. He will likely have to extend his touchdown streak to be a worthwhile option at FantasyScore, making him an all-or-nothing option.

Redskins | Season high for Pierre Garcon

Sat, 26 Dec 2015 21:30:34 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon had seven catches for a season-high for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 38-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has been a safe bet for about five catches and 50 yards per game this year, but there are plenty of options available at FantasyScore with more upside.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon finds end zone

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 18:03:30 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted three receptions for 34 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against Buffalo Bills. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has three or more receptions in each of his past five, and 12 of the past 14. He hasn't had more than 70 yards in any of his games since the opener, so consider him only as a WR3 or flex option.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon hauls in five catches

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 22:51:16 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted five receptions for 54 yards in the Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys. He was targeted seven times.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon hasn't found the end zone in six games, and he has been held to 70 or fewer yards in each of his 11 games since he had a season-high 74 yards in Week 1. He isn't worth using in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears, a team which ranks second in the NFL in passing yardage allowed.
