The 49ers officially inked Garcon to a five-year contract Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Aside from six games missed in his first season with the Redskins in 2012, Garcon has been a modicum of health in his other eight campaigns, missing five contests otherwise and none over the past four years. During that four-year span, he led the NFL in receptions once with 113 in 2013, received between 105 and 181 targets each season, and surpassed 1,000 yards on two occasions. On a sour note, he's topped out at six touchdowns in a given campaign, so his value is largely contingent upon a steady volume and avoiding the injury report. In San Francisco, he'll be reunited with head coach Kyle Shanahan, which should help Garcon sustain relevance in his third stop as a professional.

Garcon appears poised to sign with the 49ers, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

In such a scenario, Garcon would be reunited with head coach Kyle Shanahan, who served as offensive coordinator during the wideout's first two seasons (2012 and 2013) in Washington. Garcon, who turns 31 in August, is coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded 79 catches (on 116 targets) for 1,041 yards and three TDs. His expected addition to the 49ers' receiving corps would provide a needed boost to a unit that bid adieu to Torrey Smith on Monday.

Garcon recorded four receptions for 96 yards in Week 17's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran wideout led the team in receiving Sunday, putting him over 1000 receiving yards on the season for the first time since 2013. His seventh season ends with 79 receptions for 1041 yards and three touchdowns. He will now enter the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. The wideout has proven to be a valuable cog in Washington's offense, but may not be as crucial to the team next season given the emergence of Jamison Crowder this year.

Garcon recorded four receptions for 94 yards in Saturday's win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon played a major role in a second-quarter drive, hauling in a 25-yard reception followed by a 46-yard one to help move the Redskins into scoring position. His 94 receiving yards were his second highest total this season. He could see an even bigger role next week if DeSean Jackson (jaw) is forced to miss extended time.

Garcon caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for 78 yards in Monday night's loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon tied teammate DeSean Jackson in leading the Redskins in receptions, and his seven catches not only matched his season-best tally, but marked the second time he's caught that many passes in Washington's last three games. A steadily-involved chain-mover in the Redskins offense, Garcon has picked up steam lately, and will look to keep his strong regular-season finish going Saturday against the Bears.

Garcon recorded five receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon found the end zone for just the third time this season, helping Washington to pat their lead in the third quarter. Look for the veteran to remain an integral part of Washington's passing attack when they head home to take on the Panthers.

Garcon hauled in seven receptions for 78 yards in Sunday's 31-23 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran led the team in receiving Sunday, as he hauled in a season-high seven receptions. While he only has two touchdowns on the year, Garcon has proven to be consistent option in Washington's passing attack week in and week out and will now turn his attention to Sunday's divisional tilt with the Eagles.

Garcon recorded four receptions for 43 yards in the Thursday's Thanksgiving loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon continues to consistently hover around five receptions per game but has only scored twice all season. With so many offensive weapons, the veteran may be the one left out of fantasy relevancy as the season winds down.

Garcon caught six of seven targets for 116 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 42-24 win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon led the Redskins in targets, receptions and yards in the impressive victory and surpassed the 100-yard barrier for the first time this season. He found the end zone for the second time and has stepped up his role in the offense with six catches and at least 67 yards in four of the last five games. Garcon should remain heavily involved against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day.

Garcon caught six of 10 targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 26-20 win over the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Garcon recorded a long gain of just 17 yards, but he served as a valuable target on his short and intermediate routes to lead the team in receiving yardage. He has seen a noticeable uptick in production of late, as he has six catches and at least 67 yards in three of his last four games after failing to do so once through the first five. Garcon will look to continue his resurgence next week against the struggling Packers.
