Pierre Garcon WR WAS 9 Months

Pierre Garcon caught seven passes for 129 yards and one touchdown in Week 15 against the Falcons.

Garcon drew a game-high ten targets and went to town on an Atlanta secondary that was starting three rookies. It was his fourth 100-yard receiving game of the season and first since November 7. Garcon has drawn double-digit targets in all but two games this season, leaving him locked in as a weekly WR1. Garcon's 53-yard touchdown was a perfect throw down the left side from Kirk Cousins. Cousins does well in the intermediate passing game, which suits Garcon's ability to rack up YAC well. The Redskins take on the Cowboys in Week 16.

Pierre Garcon caught five passes for 37 yards in Washington's Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

The Redskins completed just 19 passes on a day where they were thoroughly dominated in all phases of the game. For Garcon, it was just the second time all year he made fewer than six grabs, while the 37 yards were a season low. Owners may be tempted to bench Garcon as the Redskins' offense goes in the tank, but he'll remain a high-floor WR2 for Week 15 against the Falcons' burnable defense.

Pierre Garcon had nine catches for 61 yards in Sunday night's Week 13 loss to the Giants.

It was a rough night for Garcon. He struggled with drops, had a delay of game penalty for kicking the ball out of bounds, and lost a fumble on the Redskins' final drive of the game. Garcon was targeted 12 times, with most of his yardage coming on crossing patterns over the middle of the field. He ran the wrong route on his only red-zone target and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 10. Even in a tough matchup with the Chiefs, Garcon will remain a WR1/2 for the fantasy playoffs.

Pierre Garcon caught eight passes for 48 yards in Week 12 against the 49ers.

Garcon was targeted a game-high 11 times but nearly all of them came on screens and quick-hitters. As soon as he'd catch the ball, Garcon would get tackled. The eight grabs saved his PPR week. Other than that, he was mostly ineffective against a stout pass defense. Garcon should find more room to operate next Sunday night against the Giants, though they've been playing better defense of late. Garcon remains an every-week WR1/2 due to volume.

Pierre Garcon is not listed on the Redskins' Week 12 injury report.

He's been a full participant in practice all week despite tweaking his ankle in last week's loss to Philadelphia. Although Garcon has a difficult matchup on Monday night against San Francisco, his outlook is helped by the 49ers' loss of RCB Tarell Brown to cracked ribs. Garcon is an every-week WR1/2.

Pierre Garcon said his ankle was hurting him badly following Sunday's loss at Philadelphia.

Garcon missed a couple snaps in the first quarter of the game, but didn't appear limited at all as he played virtually every snap after that. It sounds like a minor sprain. We should know more after coach Mike Shanahan meets with the media on Monday.

Pierre Garcon caught six passes for 68 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss at Philadelphia.

Robert Griffin III was nothing short of inept for three quarters, leading to limited opportunities for Garcon. He started to do work against Cary Williams and Roc Carmichael late, flashing that unique playmaking ability we've seen for much of the year. Still, it's a disappointing line for Garcon considering the matchup and things won't get easier in Week 12 when the Redskins host the 49ers. The good news for owners is that the Redskins will have to throw more early as the 49ers are likely to make stopping Alf Morris a priority. Averaging 6.7 catches per game, Garcon remains an elite fantasy asset.

Pierre Garcon caught seven passes for 119 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 10 loss to the Vikings.

Just like that, Garcon has ripped off back-to-back 100-yard games after entering Week 9 with zero. The touchdown was his first since Week 4. Garcon did major work after the catch this evening, pulling down slants and screens before trucking would-be tacklers. Now up to 61/803/3 on the season, Garcon has been held below six catches just once all season. The Eagles aren't going to slow him down in Week 11.

Pierre Garcon caught seven passes for 172 yards in Sunday's Week 9 overtime win over the Chargers.

With one mind-blowing and difficult catch after another, Garcon continues to make his mark as one of the most talented wideouts in the league. On pace for "just" 108 catches, 1,368 yards and four touchdowns, he's been inches away from huge games all year. Garcon is going to at least reach that pace and could do even more damage if Robert Griffin III continues to show improvement. He'll be an elite fantasy wideout against the Vikings on Thursday night.

Pierre Garcon (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, as expected.

Garcon got some rest in early in the week, but it had nothing to do with the foot woes that plagued him last year. He appears near 100 percent and is on the verge of a breakout game against the Chargers' burnable secondary. The Redskins inactives: QB Rex Grossman, RB Chris Thompson, S Jose Gumbs, LB Darryl Tapp, G Josh LeRibeus and DT Chris Neild.
