Garcon's production is expected to benefit from the Redskins focusing on more stable quarterback play this upcoming season, CSN Washington reports.

Garcon's numbers endured an eye-opening decline last season, when he caught 45 fewer passes for 594 fewer receiving yards compared to the 2013 campaign. While the Redskins' addition of fellow wideout DeSean Jackson surely impacted Garcon's production, Washington's anemic quarterback play also restricted his opportunities to make plays last season. Nonetheless, coach Jay Gruden seems intent on helping Garcon rebound this season through a more consistent quarterback situation, saying "Moving forward, we'll get some stability at the quarterback position [and] you'll see all the numbers go up for all the receivers, hopefully."

Garcon had four catches for 61 yards in Saturday's 27-24 win over the Eagles.

Garcon has a decent game every now and then, but he hasn't scored since Week 7 and has largely been a secondary option in Washington's lackluster passing attack. Expect more of the same in the Week 17 finale against the Cowboys.

Garcon caught four passes on seven targets for 36 yards Sunday against the Giants.

Another quiet game in a forgettable season for Garcon. He has 62 catches, 638 yards and three touchdowns on the year.

Garcon had nine catches on 11 targets for 95 yards in Sunday's 24-0 loss to the Rams.

With DeSean Jackson out with a shin injury, Garcon stepped up and posted one of his best games of the season, catching more than five passes for the first time since Week 3. It's been almost a lost season for Garcon, who led the league in targets (181) and receptions (113) last season but now has just 58 catches on 88 targets for 602 yards and three touchdowns this year in 13 games. Up next is a Week 15 matchup against a Giants defense that limited Garcon to just two catches for 28 yards back in Week 4.

Garcon had three receptions on four targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 17-14 loss at San Francisco.

Garcon did almost nothing, other than a 24-yard reception, but Robert Griffin had a miserable game, completing just 11-of-19 passes for 106 yards. The veteran wideout will look to get on track against his former team, Indianapolis, in Week 13.

Garcon caught one pass on two targets for six yards Sunday against the Bucs.

Garcon has failed to catch more than five passes since Week 3. He also has not been targeted more than six times since Week 3. The offense has struggled to score points in recent weeks and DeSean Jackson appears have overtaken Garcon atop the depth chart.

Garcon had three catches on five targets for 15 yards Sunday against the Vikings.

After catching 113 passes on 181 targets for 1,346 yards last season, expectations were high for Garcon this season, even with DeSean Jackson added to the mix. However, he's primarily been a disappointment, failing to reach even 50 receiving yards in six of nine games this season, while catching more than five passes just twice (Weeks 1 and 3). Jackson has been the major contributor, especially of late, with four games with at least 115 yards in the last five weeks, and there's little reason to believe Garcon is ready to break out of his funk. The Redskins are off next weekend, but will come out of their bye to face the Bucs in Week 11, a team that is allowing the second-most passing yards per game this season. If there's a game for Garcon to break out, that could be it.

Garcon caught 4-of-4 targets for 47 yards in Monday's 20-17 overtime win over the Cowboys.

Garcon's four targets were good for third on the team, trailing only DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed, who got seven looks apiece. Garcon had just three catches for 24 yards in regulation, then caught a 23-yard pass on the first play of overtime. More troubling than the modest production, he saw six or fewer targets for a fifth straight week, after piling up 32 through the first three weeks of the season. So long as Jackson and Reed are healthy, Garcon may be stuck as the short/intermediate option at wide receiver in an offense that does a pretty good job of spreading the ball around. The last few weeks stand in stark contrast to last season, when Garcon led the NFL with 181 targets.

Garcon had five catches on six targets for 87 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Titans.

Garcon has now scored a touchdown in back-to-back weeks, with Sunday's score notable because it was thrown by third-stringer Colt McCoy, who took over after Kirk Cousins was benched at halftime. Garcon was fairly limited outside of the touchdown, as he caught four passes for 17 yards otherwise. He could be catching passes from a third different quarterback next week, as it's possible that Robert Griffin returns from his ankle injury, though it's more likely that he gets back the following week, leaving McCoy to start in Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Garcon had four receptions on six targets for 31 yards and scored a touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 loss at Arizona.

Garcon was doing very little, until he caught a short touchdown in the final three minutes of the game. Meanwhile, DeSean Jackson outperformed him for the second straight week, as the speedy wideout had 115 yards and a touchdown. Garcon is still seeing a decent amount of targets, but with Jackson around and Jordan Reed (hamstring) back in the fold, he's probably not going to see as much action as he did last year, when he received a league-high 181 targets.
