Pierre Garcon leaves with sore hamstring


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon left practice early because of a sore right hamstring, but he's not concerned and neither is coach Jay Gruden.

"He’ll be OK,” Gruden told the Washington Post. Garcon said he felt some soreness and didn't think it was wise to push it.

"I’ll be good," Garcon said. "No need to rush."

The Redskins are off Tuesday before resuming practice Wednesday.


Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.


Robert Griffin III to work with receivers next week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his receiving targets will gather in Arizona next week to "knock off some rust and get a jump on offseason workouts," reports the Washington Post. The receivers scheduled to attend include Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, new additions Andre Roberts and David Gettis, tight end Jordan Reed and running backs Alfred Morris, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson.

Robert Griffin III, Pierre Garcon planning joint workouts


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon told the team's website that he and quarterback Robert Griffin III will work out together this offseason. “We’ve already got that date set up. We’ve already got a place,” Garcon said. “We’re going to go to Arizona, work out there. We’ll probably do some more in Ashburn (Va.). Probably go to Baylor a little bit.

"We’re definitely going to be around. Probably go to Miami. I’m trying to talk him into going to Miami. South Florida is home."

Garcon, who at one point last season said the Redskins "suck at passing," has high hopes for 2014.

"We have a good offense. We definitely have great players," Garcon said. "We have a good tight end, a good running back, a good quarterback, good receivers. What else do you need on offense?"


Pierre Garcon has 56 yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught six passes for 56 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Giants. He was targeted 10 times -- the 14th time this year Garcon has seen 10 or more targets. 

Garcon also became just the third player in NFL history to catch at least five passes in all 16 games.

He finishes the season with 113 receptions for 1,346 yards (both career highs) and five touchdowns (with two coming in the final three games). Garcon had five 100-yard games this season, and only dipped below 50 receiving yards in a game three times. 


Pierre Garcon on fire with new quarterback


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/27/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has been a Fantasy boon since Kirk Cousins took over as quarterback, with 273 receiving yards and two touchdowns over his last two games. He has 29 total targets and has averaged 19 Fantasy points per game -- in standard leagues; 28 in PPR formats -- in those two games.

Garcon's Week 17 opponent, the Giants, have been neither excellent nor poor against wide receivers this season. When the teams met in Week 13, Garcon caught nine passes (on 12 targets) for 61 yards. But that was before Cousins took over and made Garcon his lifeline. In Week 16, Cousins threw for 197 yards; 144 of those went to Garcon. It would make sense for the Giants to blanket Garcon in Week 17, but the Cowboys managed to minimize the overall damage by letting Garcon go wild in Week 16, so it could also be business as usual. 

With championships and season point totals on the line in Week 17, there has to be something more than theoretical guesswork involved to make a case to sit someone who has been so good since a quarterback change. Garcon should be started in most Fantasy formats. 


Pierre Garcon catches 11 passes Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Washington wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught a whopping 11 passes Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Garcon was the main target of quarterback Kirk Cousins, receiving 18 targets. He finished the game with 144 yards. With the game, Garcon broke the team's record for receptions in a season. He also managed to score on an 8 yard pass in the third quarter. Garcon will take on the Giants Week 17.


Pierre Garcon a strong play Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2013) Washington receiver Pierre Garcon is looking like a strong play Week 16 against the Cowboys.

Dallas hasn't been strong against opposing wideouts, allowing them to average 25.00 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has given up 30 passing touchdowns. Yardage has also been a problem, as Dallas has allowed 190.93 receiving yards to wideouts per game. In the first meeting between the two teams, Garcon caught six balls for 69 yards.

In four career games against Dallas, Garcon has performed admirably. He average 64.3 receiving yards per game, and has scored two touchdowns. Garcon emerged as Kirk Cousins favorite target last week, catching seven passes for 129 yards and a score. He could be looking at an equally strong game Week 16 against Dallas. He's a strong Fantasy start. 


Quarterback change suits Pierre Garcon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon came into Week 15 at Atlanta in a rut. He was being targeted as much as ever but was averaging just 53.5 yards on 7.0 catches. That was with Robert Griffin III under center, though. With the Redskins switching to Kirk Cousins to preserve Griffin's health for 2014, Garcon performed as well as he has all season, burning the Falcons' 20th-ranked pass defense for 129 yards on seven catches.

The biggest came in the second quarter, when Cousins found him downfield for a 53-yard score. Most of his other catchers were underneath routes designed for yards after the catch, but he did have a 27-yard grab in the second quarter. In all, Garcon had 10 targets, which led the team. He hasn't had fewer than 10 targets since Week 7 against the Bears.

Garcon will look to build on the performance with another favorable matchup Week 16 against the Cowboys.


Pierre Garcon working with new quarterback


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2013) Though he's been as highly targeted as ever, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has averaged 53.5 yards with no tuochdown catches over his last four games -- the same stretch during which the Redskins have averaged 12.3 points.

The Redskins are turning to backup quarterback Kirk Cousins in an effort to get their offense going Week 15 at Atlanta, but judging by Cousins' inaccurate and inefficient fourth-quarter performance against the Chiefs last week, it might not make much of a difference.

For what it's worth, the matchup is a favorable one for Garcon. The Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 245.8 yards per game, and have given up the third-most touchdown passes. With all the targets he gets, Garcon is a candidate to score any given week, but if you've been frustrated by his lack of production in recent weeks, this matchup, favorable as it may be, may not be enough to get him going.

Clearly, you could do much, much worse than him in Fantasy, particularly points-per-reception leagues, but of the three CBSSports.com Fantsay Football analysts, only Nathan Zegura is willing to include Garcon in his top 24 wide receivers for this week, ranking him 13th. 


Pierre Garcon has worst game of season


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Coming off three straight games with less than 70 receiving yards, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon wasn't any better Week 14 against the Chiefs. In fact, he finished with a season-low 37 yards on five catches, squandering his team-high 12 targets.

In fairness, few of those targets were on target. Quarterback Robert Griffin III struggled with his accuracy on a snowy day, frequently overthrowing his intended targets. He had an especially bad miss on a deep ball to Garcon near the end zone in the third quarter.

Despite Garcon's lack of production in recent weeks, which may simply be a product of the Redskins' struggles as a whole, he remains the go-to guy in the passing game, getting double-digit targets in seven straight games. He'll look to make better use of those targets with a favorable matchup Week 15 at Atlanta.


Wrong time for Pierre Garcon rebound


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) Though he's been targeted as much as usual and hauled in his share of passes, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon's production over the last three games has been lacking. He fell short of 70 yards and went without a touchdown in each. And while matchup was at least partially to blame Week 12 against the 49ers, it shouldn't have been so much of a factor in Weeks 11 and 13.

In Week 14, Garcon will face a Chiefs defense that technically ranks only 21st against the pass, allowing 249.0 yards per game, but two recent matchups against the Broncos' Peyton Manning have influenced that ranking. The Chiefs have a good pass rush and an opportunistic secondary, which together could give a mistake-prone quarterback like Robert Griffin III fits.

And his struggles would likely trickle down to his top wide receiver. With all the targets he gets, you probably couldn't justify sitting Garcon in Fantasy, but you shouldn't expect a big resurgence this week either.


Pierre Garcon makes huge mistake


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon led the team with nine catches for 61 yards in the loss to the Giants but made a critical mistake on Washington's final drive. After catching a short pass, Garcon struggled for extra yardage only to have the ball ripped away by safety Will Hill. The fumble ended the Redskins' comeback hopes. 

Targeted a team-high 12 times, Garcon achieved a milestone Week 13. He now has 980 receiving yards, surpassing the previous career high of 947 he set with the Colts in 2011.

Garcon plays the Chiefs in Week 14.


Pierre Garcon looking for success vs. Giants


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Despite spending a season-plus in the NFC East, Redksins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has faced the Giants just one since joining the Redskins, due to injury. He did find success in his lone matchup last season, and will try to put up a repeat performance in Week 13.

The Giants have shored up their pass defense recently, allowing just 13.2 Fantasy points per game over the last five, but Garcon has torched them before. Garcon racked up eight receptions for 106 yards and a touchdown the last time he saw the Giants on the schedule.

The Giants have not allowed a wide receiver to score over the last five games, and Garcon has just one touchdown in that same span himself. Still, the Redskins throw the ball his way a ton, and he is averaging 90.6 yards over the last five games. This isn't the greatest matchup, but Garcon will be looking to repeat his past success, and should be started in most Fantasy formats for Week 13. 


Pierre Garcon can't crack 50 yards in Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon failed to make much of an impact during Monday's loss to the 49ers in Week 12.

Garcon was Robert Griffin III's primary receiver but was held under 50 receiving yards for the second time this season. He was targeted 11 times and finished with eight receptions for 48 yards in a 27-6 defeat.

Garcon has reached a personal best 75 receptions on the year for 919 yards. It’s the most receptions he’s had in a season since 2011 with Indianapolis. He'll look to bounce back at home against the Giants in Week 13.

Pierre Garcon leaves briefly, still leads way


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon left early Week 11 at Philadelphia with what appeared to be a foot injury but was able to return in short order. He had just one catch for 8 yards in the first half but came on strong with the Redskins playing from behind in the second half and ended up leading the team in targets (10), receptions (six) and receiving yards (68).

It was the fifth time in six games that Garcon had double-digit targets. Unfortunately, it was also the fifth time in six games that he went without a score. Assuming he doesn't have any setbacks with his foot, he'll look to reverse the trend Week 12 against the 49ers.


Another big game likely for Pierre Garcon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/12/2013) With back-to-back 100-yard games, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon enters Week 11 as one of the hottest plays in Fantasy, and given his matchup at Philadelphia, he's unlikely to disappoint.

The Eagles have allowed the most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season. Last week, the Packers' Jarrett Boykin had eight catches for 112 yards against them even with third-stringer Scott Tolzien under center for most of the game. The Eagles rank 31st against the pass, allowing 306.5 yards per game, and have surrendered 15 touchdown through the air. And 14 of those have gone to wide receivers.

Even if Garcon falls short of the century mark, he has yet to catch fewer than five passes for less than 46 yards in a game this season. Factor in the likelihood of him scoring a touchdown, and he's one of the easiest calls you could make this week. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all rank him in their top 10 at wide receiver, with Nathan going as high as No. 3.


Pierre Garcon with another 100-yard game


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon had a big game Thursday night in a losing effort Week 10 at Minnesota. Garcon topped 100 yards for the second consecutive game. 

Garcon, who was targeted 10 times in the game, caught seven passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. He scored on an 8-yard pass from Robert Griffin III in the first quarter of a game that saw the Redskins lose a 13-point third-quarter lead. 

Garcon has 21 catches in his last three games and has averaged 112 yards per game over that span with a TD. The Redskins play at Philadelphia Week 11. 


Pierre Garcon in for another solid performance


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has a pretty solid matchup awaiting him on Thursday night of Week 10 at Minnesota.

Washington's top receiving option should have an opportunity to record his third 100-yard game of the season and second in as many weeks after he went for seven catches and 172 yards last week against San Diego.

That is due to the fact that the Vikings pass defense leaves a lot to be desired. Minnesota has given up the eighth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this year. Jordy Nelson torched them for 123 yards and two scores Week 8.

The Redskins do not have many solid receiving options beside Garcon and tight end Jordan Reed. Garcon should continue to see plenty of targets come his way. The WR is a nice start as a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 Fantasy WR for Week 10 on Thursday night.

Pierre Garcon goes for 172 yards


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon had a monster game during an overtime win over the Chargers Week 9 in D.C. Garcon caught seven passes for a game-high 172 yards. 

Garcon made several highlight-reel catches for quarterback Robert Griffin III on the day. He was targeted a team-high 11 times and averaged 24.6 yards per reception. 

Garcon has at least five catches in five straight games but has just one touchdown catch over that span. The Redskins next play on Thursday of Week 10 at Minnesota.


Pierre Garcon ready to roll for Washington


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon, who was dealing with a calf issue in practice this week, is active for the Week 9 game at home against the San Diego Chargers. Garcon has 47 catches for 512 yards and two touchdowns through seven games.

(10/30/2013) Redskins No. 1 receiver Pierre Garcon was limited in Wednesday's practice by a calf injury, reports the Washington Post. Garcon has 47 catches for 512 yards and two touchdowns through seven games.

Washington hosts San Diego on Sunday.


Pierre Garcon should get plenty of looks


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has proven to be Robert Griffin III's only reliable pass-catching weapon as Washington readies to host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday of Week 9. Garcon has made a few outstanding catches for RG3, while the rest of the receiving corps has routinely dropped passes with regularity.

Garcon has at least five catches in all seven games this season for Washington. That said, he hasn't scored since Week 4 at Oakland. He also hasn't topped 69 receiving yards since Week 3 against Detroit. Garcon started off the year very strong, but has since faded with the rest of the Redskins passing game.

Washington will continue to run the ball Week 9, but Garcon should see plenty of opportunities as well. The Chargers currently rank fifth in the NFL in most Fantasy points allowed per game to opposing wide receivers and that bodes well for a big game from Garcon. Just last game Jacksonville's Mike Brown topped 120 yards against the Chargers.

The last time Garcon played San Diego was back in 2010 with the Colts. He caught five passes for 72 yards in that game but didn't score. He'll search for the end zone Sunday and should be considered a solid No. 1 or No. 2 Fantasy WR worthy of starting in all leagues and formats.
