Garcon tallied five receptions for 59 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

After a quiet performance in Week 2, Garcon made a bigger impact against the Giants as he had the best game of the season thus far. While the wideout has failed to get into the endzone yet this season, he showed Sunday that he can still be an impactful possession receiver. However, it seems that Jamison Crowder (five receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown) is quickly replacing Garcon as the team's number two wideout.

Garcon recorded two receptions for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The nine-year veteran had a quiet day on Sunday, as he couldn't seem to find openings in the Cowboy's secondary. Garcon may continue to see a lower amount of targets than in years past, as young wideouts Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson continue to make plays. Crowder, Washington's third string wideout, actually spent more time on the field with 48 snaps compared to Garcon's 46. The 30-year-old's fantasy value could diminish if his snap count continues to fall.

Garcon caught all six of his targets, finishing with 51 receiving yards in Monday's game against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon's six looks trailed teammates Jordan Reed (11), DeSean Jackson (10) and Jamison Crowder (10), but only Reed's seven grabs exceeded the veteran's perfect catch total. That being said, Garcon's 8.5 yards per carry was lower than all of his aforementioned teammates, evidencing his status as a possession receiver. While the 30-year-old can move the sticks here and there, he didn't post a 100-yard game last season, so Garcon needs to find the end zone to make up for his low ceiling at this stage in his career.

Garcon hauled in two receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 21-16 preseason win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon had a solid outing on Friday, scoring one of the Redskins' three touchdowns. He will not play in next week's game against the Buccaneers, as head coach Jay Gruden announced all starters will rest the final game of the preseason. The veteran wideout can now shift his focus to the Steelers, who play the Redskins the first Monday Night Football game of the year.

Garcon didn't play in Friday's preseason victory against the Jets, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Redskins held out three mainstays of the aerial assault, with Garcon joining Kirk Cousins and DeSean Jackson in street clothes. Expect Garcon to return to action Friday versus the Bills in what will be a dress rehearsal of sorts for Week 1.

Garcon caught his lone target for a five-yard gain in Thursday's preseason opener against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon and the other key starters only played one drive, with Kirk Cousins spreading the ball around to four different receivers. While Garcon and DeSean Jackson are set to reprise their roles as starters on the outside, rookie Josh Doctson (Achilles/foot) may eventually emerge as a threat to steal snaps, particularly in the red zone. Even if Doctson struggles to get healthy or make an impact, Garcon has plenty of competition for targets on a team that also features Jackson, Jordan Reed and Jamison Crowder.

Garcon caught five of eight targets for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon caught at least five passes for the fourth time in six games, dating back to Week 13 of the regular season. For the year, Garcon tied a career high in touchdowns with six and was a major part of Washington's pass-happy end to the season. Garcon found the end zone in each of Washington's final three regular season games and, if Kirk Cousins and the Washington passing attack continues on that trajectory in 2016, Garcon should be a coveted No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy option in 2016.

Garcon nabbed three passes off of four targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

Quarterback Kirk Cousins put together a fantastic three-game run to end the season, collecting 11 touchdowns without an interception. Tight end Jordan Reed was the main beneficiary with four trips to the end zone during that span, but Garcon has been right behind - scoring once in each game. If the hits keep on coming for Cousins, expect Garcon to be a big part of it, but Washington draws a tough Wild Card Weekend matchup against a Green Bay defense that surrendered fewer touchdown passes than all but five teams this season.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon has now scored in back to back weeks. While the season has been a bit of a disappointment he has eclipsed his even more disappointing 2014 numbers.
