Redskins WR Pierre Garcon racks up 61 yards in win over Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was held to only four grabs for the second consecutive game, in his team's 27-24 victory over the Eagles in Week 16.

Garcon came down with a 12-yard grab in the second quarter for his only catch of the first half. After halftime, he hauled in passes of 17, 9 and 23 yards. He was targeted five times and finished with four grabs for 61 yards. He has 66 catches for 699 yards and three scores this season.

Washington will host Dallas in Week 17.


QB situation still harming Washington's wide receivers


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Though the Redskins got a solid performance out of Robert Griffin III in Week 15, their two main wide receivers, Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson didn't benefit.

Jackson, who made his return from a shin injury Sunday, had just three receptions for 15 yards, despite being targeted eight times. He led the team in targets, one ahead of Garcon, who had just four catches of his own for 36 yards. That coming off a nine-catch, 95-yard showing last week.

Both players have shown the ability to be productive, but the inconsistent quarterback play has hurt them this season. Whether Griffin or Colt McCoy gets the starting nod in Week 16, neither player should be viewed as more than a low-end starting option against the Eagles, though both players had 100-plus yards and a touchdown in a prior meeting.  


Redskins WR Pierre Garcon can't repeat Week 14 production


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon finished with just four catches for 36 yards in a Week 15 loss to the Giants after totaling nine catches for 95 yards in Week 14. Garcon was targeted seven times and his longest reception went 22 yards.

The Redskins played most of Sunday's game with Robert Griffin III at quarterback after Colt McCoy aggravated a neck injury on the opening drive.

Garcon extended his scoreless streak to seven games. The Redskins are back in action Week 16 against the Eagles.


Injury factors into Pierre Garcon's production


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2014) We had a Pierre Garcon sighting Week 14 against St. Louis with DeSean Jackson sidelined by a bruised shin. An afterthought in the Redskins passing game just one year after hauling in 113 passes for 1,346 yards, the former Colt overcame a nine-game stretch in which he averaged 31.1 yards with 95 yards on nine catches, leading the team with 11 targets.

The Redskins still have plenty to sort out at quarterback after Colt McCoy left Sunday's game with a neck injury, but since Jackson isn't expected to be sidelined for long, you shouldn't put much stock in Garcon's performance regardless.

For other major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.


Washington WR Pierre Garcon gains 95 yards


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Washington wideout Pierre Garcon was the only bright spot on offense Week 14.

Garcon hauled in nine passes for 95 yards during the contest. He was targeted a team-high 11 times. Quarterback Colt McCoy had a tough start, but managed to make sure Garcon was involved. With DeSean Jackson out, Garcon was the team's only real threat in the passing game. Despite the decent game, Garcon could not find the end zone.

He'll look for more Week 15 against the Giants. 


Colt McCoy wants to target Pierre Garcon 'as much as we can'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon has not caught more than three passes in a game since Week 8. Quarterback Colt McCoy wants to change that Sunday against the Rams.

"We need to get Pierre the ball as much as we can," McCoy said, per the team's website.

Garcon has 49 catches for 507 yards and three touchdowns.


Redskins appear ready to get Garcon more involved on offense


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday certain throws should have gone to wide receiver Pierre Garcon during Sunday's loss vs. Tampa Bay, according to The Washington Post. Gruden added he needs to do a better job as a play caller on getting Garcon involved.

Garcon finished with a season-low 6 yards on one catch during Sunday's loss. He was targeted twice. Garcon has totaled just four catches for 21 yards in two games since quarterback Robert Griffin III returned from an ankle injury. Garcon doesn't have a touchdown in three straight games.

He has 43 catches for 464 yards and three touchdowns through 10 games after totaling 113 catches for 1,346 yards and five touchdowns in 2013.


Redskins' Garcon has worst outing of season in Week 11 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon had his worst performance of the season during a 27-7 loss Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay. Garcon finished with a season-low 6 yards on one catch. He was targeted twice.

Garcon has totaled just four catches for 21 yards in two games since quarterback Robert Griffin III returned from an ankle injury. Garcon doesn't have a touchdown in three straight games.

The Redskins are back in action Week 12 at San Francisco.


RG3's return can't fix Pierre Garcon's issues


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Fantasy owners waiting to see whether the return of Robert Griffin III for the Redskins could resuscitate Pierre Garcon's value had to come away disappointed with Sunday's 29-26 loss to the Vikings in Week 9.

Garcon was targeted five times in the game, which tied him for second on the team, but he did little with that work. He hauled in three passes for just 15 yards, a total six other players bested Sunday. It was Garcon's fifth game with four or fewer Fantasy points in nine outings this season.

Garcon was a huge part of the team's offense a year ago, racking up 113 receptions on 184 targets, but he isn't on pace for anything close to that. Heading into the team's Week 10 bye, Garcon is on pace for just 110 targets and 74.7 catches. At this point Garcon can hardly be counted on as a starting Fantasy option for any given game, including Week 11 against the Buccaneers. 


Pierre Garcon totals 15 yards as RG3 returns from ankle injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon struggled as quarterback Robert Griffin III made his return Week 9 at Minnesota after missing six games due to a dislocated ankle. Garcon, who was targeted five times, finished with three catches for 15 yards in a 29-26 loss.

The 15 yards were Garcon's second-lowest total this season. He had one catch for 12 yards in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

The Redskins are on a bye Week 10 before returning to action Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay.


Pierre Garcon hoping return of RG3 proves helpful


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Redskins are likely to turn the reins of the offense back over to Robert Griffin III in Week 9 against the Vikings, and that should be a good thing for Pierre Garcon's Fantasy value moving forward.

Garcon averaged 78.2 yards per game in Griffin's 13 starts last season, 63.3 in Griffin's rookie year and had 77 yards on 10 receptions in Griffin's lone full game this season. In comparison, Garcon has averaged just 52.3 yards per game in seven games without Griffin this season, and was targeted just 10 times in two games with Colt McCoy at the helm, including just four times last week.

Griffin's return should not be viewed as a panacea for Garcon's flagging Fantasy value, but his return should settle things down for Washington's passing game. Griffin is, at the very least, a better passer than McCoy and his presence should open things up for the passing game. This isn't a great matchup for Garcon, but we should at least get to see the Redskins' passing game at full strength for the first time since Week 2. Keep an eye on the rapport between the duo to see if Garcon might be in line for a big second half.


Pierre Garcon struggling in reduced role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has settled into a consistent role in the team's offense recently, but that hasn't led to good results, as he struggled yet again in Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Garcon was held to below 50 yards receiving for the fourth time in five games Monday, as he hauled in just four passes for 47 yards. And, while he had been able to salvage his previous two games with touchdowns, Garcon was held out of the end zone in Week 8, giving him his sixth single-digit Fantasy scoring effort in eight games.

Garcon has just one 100-yard game this season, and has five or fewer receptions in each of his last five games. At this point, he is clearly not the primary option in the passing game, and has become extremely touchdown dependent as a result, averaging 43.2 yards per game over the last five. Garcon has never been a big touchdown guy, so Fantasy owners should probably only consider starting him against good matchups. 


Pierre Garcon relatively quiet on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon caught all four of his targets for 47 yards in Monday's win at Dallas. Garcon's biggest play came when he flashed across the middle for a 23-yard gain to start Washington's winning drive in overtime.

Garcon ranked third on the team in targets, with DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed drawing seven targets each. Garcon visits the Vikings in Week 9.


Better to sit DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been hit or miss from week to week, but you can't get around the fact that in three of the last five weeks, he's gone for more than 100 yards and a touchdown.

The problem is Kirk Cousins was his quarterback for all three of those games. The Redskins are turning to Colt McCoy for Week 8 at Dallas.

That's bad news for all the Redskins wide receivers, but especially Jackson, whose production is mostly tied to his ability to beat the defense deep. McCoy isn't one for going deep. He averaged 5.9 yards per attempt in his last year as an NFL starter, and aside from that short pass that Pierre Garcon turned into 70-yard touchdown, McCoy had 10 completions for just 58 yards in Week 7.

That doesn't mean Garcon is safe. Apart from that score, he had four catches for 17 yards in Week 7 and averaged just 27.3 yards in his previous three games. He should fare better than Jackson with McCoy, but ultimately, an inferior quarterback isn't going to do him good.

You might want to sit both in Fantasy for the time being.


So many questions for Pierre Garcon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) After three straight games with 31 yards or fewer, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon finally looked like himself again Week 7 against Tennessee, catching five passes for 87 yards and a touchdown.

Of course, if not for one fluky play in which he beat a defender on a simple curl route and took the ball 70 yards for a score, he would have had just five catches for about 25 yards and no touchdowns, burning his Fantasy owners yet again.

So do you hold that against him? Well, if the Redskins decide their starting quarterback is Colt McCoy, who was on the other end of that play and led the team to a come-from-behind victory, more big plays probably aren't in Garcon's future. McCoy had 10 other completions in Week 7, none for more than 10 yards. And remember, that one probably shouldn't have been for more than 10 yards either.

Of course, Garcon wasn't exactly clicking with Kirk Cousins. Cousins has more of an ability to stretch the field, but Garcon has been better on shorter routes over the last couple years.

So who really knows? If you have depth at wide receiver, you may want to play it safe and sit Garcon for Week 8 at Dallas just to see how the situation plays out.


Pierre Garcon takes reception 70 yards to the house Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon recorded a 70-yard touchdown, which was the third-longest of his career, during a 19-17 win Week 7 vs. Tennessee. Garcon finished with a team-high 87 receiving yards on five catches.

Garcon was having a pretty quiet game until Colt McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins at quarterback in the second half. Garcon, who had one catch for 5 yards in the first half, took McCoy's first pass of the game 70 yards for a touchdown to put Washington ahead 13-10. It was Garcon's third touchdown and second in as many games.

The 87 yards were the second-highest total this season for Garcon, who had 138 yards in Week 3. The Redskins are back in action Week 8 at Dallas.


Coach seeks to get Redskins WR Garcon going early in games


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Jay Gruden is hoping to get Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon rolling earlier in games, the team website has reported.

"Pierre is a major part of this offense," Gruden said. "We need to make sure we get him more touches earlier in games."

Garcon has proven inconsistent this season. He racked up 21 receptions for 215 yards and one touchdown in Weeks 1 and 3 combined, but has just nine catches for 94 yards and one score in the other four games combined.


Redskins WR Pierre Garcon scores touchdown in Week 6 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught four of his six targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in his team's 30-20 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.

Garcon was able to give the offense life with a five-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to pull the Redskins to within three points, but quarterback Kirk Cousins threw his third interception of the quarter to lock up the team's fourth straight loss. It was the third straight quiet performance for Garcon, as he had managed only 51 yards on four receptions in his previous two games combined. He heads into a Week 7 matchup with the Titans with 30 receptions, 309 yards and two touchdowns.


Andre Roberts picks up Pierre Garcon's slack


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/7/2014) While Pierre Garcon was targeted only three times Week 5 against Seattle, fellow Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts was targeted a season-high nine times, catching five passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Despite the lack of yardage, it's the kind of performance that stands out in a box score, especially against one of the league's best defenses.

But it's not like Roberts' role changed. He played about two-thirds of the Redskins' snaps, which was no different than usual. Most likely, the increased production was just a side effect of Richard Sherman covering Garcon. Quarterback Kirk Cousins needed somewhere else to throw the ball.

In other words, it won't be the norm for either Roberts or Garcon. Roberts is a big enough part of the Redskins' passing game to have some value in deeper points-per-reception formats, but he should remain unowned in the majority of Fantasy leagues.


Pierre Garcon held under 30 yards for second straight week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Redskins wideout Pierre Garcon hauled in two of his three targets for 23 yards Monday night, the third time in five games he's failed to clear 30 yards. Garcon has four catches for 51 yards over the past two weeks.

Garcon will try to get going Week 6 at Arizona.


Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson risky for Week 5


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) If the last two weeks are any indication, as quarterback Kirk Cousins goes, so go wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. Both were complete busts in Week 4, when Cousins threw four interceptions in a laugher against the Giants.

The correlation is especially troubling with the Redskins set to host defending champion Seattle in Week 5. The Seahawks, in case you haven't heard, are pretty stellar on defense. Though statistically, they don't rank as high against the pass as you'd expect thanks to some tough matchups against Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning to begin the season, Cousins isn't of the same caliber. And not all of them did so hot anyway. Rodgers threw for just 189 yards in Week 1.

If you're going to pick one, Garcon is probably the better choice since his role as the possession receiver should theoretically make him a little more consistent than the boom-or-bust Jackson, but neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard has either higher than 32nd at wide receiver this week.


Pierre Garcon hauls in two passes


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Washington wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught two passes Thursday against the Giants.

Garcon managed 28 yards during the contest. Washington went down early, and quarterback Kirk Cousins had a lot of trouble getting his playmakers the ball. Cousins opted to throw to his running backs and tight ends for the most part. Garcon was targeted six times, which was actually the highest total of any pass catcher on the team.

Garcon will take on the Seahawks Week 5. 


Receivers could go against the norm Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start. 


Pierre Garcon plays a huge role in shootout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon emerged as Kirk Cousins' top target Sunday, in a  37-34 loss to the Eagles Sunday.

Garcon was targeted a team-high 16 times in the game, and led the team in all receiving categories. He hauled in 11 of those passes for 138 yards and a touchdown, all of which represent his best marks of the season.

Garcon was limited to just one reception for 12 yards in Cousins' first game at quarterback, but the two clearly developed a rapport Sunday. He has 22 receptions for 227 yards through three games, and will look to keep rolling when they face the Giants in Week 4 Thursday.  


Pierre Garcon a non-factor in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) On a day when everything was working for the Redskins, wide receiver Pierre Garcon had trouble getting going in a 41-10 win over the Jaguars in Week 2.

Garcon was basically a non-factor in the win, as he was targeted just four times, good for fourth on the team. He hauled in just one of those passes for 12 yards in the win.

Garcon appeared to have trouble getting on the same page as new quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is likely to remain the starter moving forward. He will look to bounce back in Week 3 against the Eagles.
