Redskins | Pierre Garcon quiet in loss

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 17:45:10 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon had two receptions for 22 yards in five targets in the Week 7 game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has found the end zone just once this season, and he has been held to 59 or fewer yards in six of his seven games. Garcon is only worth keeping around as receiver depth in fantasy leagues of 12 or more yards.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon leads receivers

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 14:08:49 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon caught six passes for 77 yards in a 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was targeted 11 times, which suggests he is definitely in favor with QB Kirk Cousins. He should be one of your top two receivers in a fantasy lineup.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon catches TD pass

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 14:44:33 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon caught five passes for 56 yards and one touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has been a bit inconsistent in terms of his receiving yards this season but has been targeted at least six times in four of the five games. He could be a flex option most leagues or a bye week replacement in deeper leagues.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon posts 51 yards

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 21:04:58 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon posted six receptions for 51 yards in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, converting all six of his targets into targets.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon is behind DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed in the pecking order for catches in D.C., and he is battling Jamison Crowder for the crumbs. There is still enough ball to go around, but Garcon should be treated more like a WR4 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.

Redskins | Josh Doctson to open as backup?

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 17:59:39 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is likely to open the year as the backup to WR DeSean Jackson and WR Pierre Garcon while WR Jamison Crowder works as the starting slot receiver, according to bear writer John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson missed some time during minicamp, and Washington's depth at receiver further hurts his chances of making a quick impact. He should be scooped up early in rookie drafts, but he is a late-round flier in standard formats.

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.
