Pierre Garcon: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Garcon (hamstring) will not play in Thursday's preseason opener against against the Patriots, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Garcon has been limited by a sore right hamstring during the early portion of training camp, forcing him to miss a few practices along the way. To ensure their No. 1 receiver maximum rest, Garcon will continue to be held out for Thursday's first preseason game. With DeSean Jackson (ankle) also carrying a minor ailment, fellow wideouts Andre Roberts and Santana Moss could see first-team work versus New England.
Garcon (hamstring) sat out Tuesday's practice, the Boston Globe reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Garcon has missed a couple practices here and there already, so Tuesday is another one of those off days for the Redskins' No. 1 wideout. With Washington matching up with the Patriots for scrimmages this week, it's unclear whether Garcon will rejoin the action for Wednesday's final session. As Garcon sits out, the door is opened for offseason signings DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, as well as tight end Jordan Reed, to see more targets.

The report suggests that Garcon appeared to be limited in his participation Wednesday, but the wideout's presence on the field is nonetheless encouraging after he strained his hamstring during Monday's practice.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Garcon's touchdown came on a 53-yard play, in which he accumulated most of the yards after the catch. Despite the quarterback change to Kirk Cousins, Garcon's streak of double-digit targets reached eight games, as he's gone under 10 just twice this year. He remains a solid fantasy option, with a favorable Week 16 matchup against the Cowboys in Week 16.
Garcon had five catches on 12 targets for 37 yards Sunday against the Chiefs.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Garcon was held off the scoreboard for the third straight game, but was again a steady source of receptions with a season-high nine catches. His performance will likely be defined by a fumble on the final drive of the game for the Redskins, when the team was down a touchdown. With an average of over 10 targets per game, he remains a solid matchup, even against the Chiefs in Week 14.
Garcon caught eight passes for 48 yards on 11 targets in Monday's 27-6 loss to the 49ers.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Had Garcon stayed healthy all year, 2012 might have been a monster season. Instead Garcon missed six games outright and parts of two others with injuries to his foot and toe, and even when he returned he was playing in pain. He still managed 633 yards on only 67 targets (9.4 YPT, 11th among the league's 71 60-target WR), and had 10 catches of 20 yards or more. At 6-0, 210 and with 4.4 speed, Garcon is the most dangerous WR on the team, and the Redskins did nothing to improve their receiving corps this offseason, so he again figures to be the teamís top option. Of course, quarterback Robert Griffin's status for the start of the season is up in the air at press time, and Garcon himself had shoulder surgery and is still rehabbing his toe. Garcon is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, however.

2012

Garconís body of work wasnít all that impressive last year Ė 7.1 YPT, 13.5 YPC for the supposed deep threat. But when you consider the quarterback situation Ė Curtis Painter for most of the year, followed by Dan Orlovsky Ė and that Garcon still managed four plays for 40 or more yards, itís perhaps not so bad. Apparently, the Redskins agreed as they signed Garcon to a five-year, $42.5 million deal with $21.5 million guaranteed. At 6-0, 210, Garcon has good size and 4.4 speed, a combination that should make him Robert Griffin IIIís big play threat from the start. Garcon also showed good hands last year, dropping just four passes in 134 targets. While Garcon has competition for targets in Santana Moss, Josh Morgan, Leonard Hankerson and tight end Fred Davis, we have to think heíll be the featured option given his contract. Griffinís readiness as a pocket passer is probably the biggest variable in Garconís value this year Ė that and how the Redskins distribute the red-zone looks between the receivers and Davis.

2011

With all the injuries to the Colts receiving corps last year, you'd think Garcon Ė who missed two games himself Ė might have broken out. He didn't. Garcon managed just 11.7 YPC and 6.6. YPT, despite catching balls from Peyton Manning. Garcon did see 19 red-zone looks and nine from inside the 10, which contributed to six scores, but on 119 Manning targets, we'd expect more. Garcon also had nine drops (6th). At 6-0, 210 with 4.4. speed, Garcon should be the team's big-play threat, but he had just eight catches of 20-plus and only two of 40 or more. Heading into 2011, Austin Collie and Dallas Clark are back, and even Anthony Gonzalez could get more involved. And, of course, top target Reggie Wayne isn't going anywhere.

2010

Reggie Wayne is still the Coltsí most trusted receiver, but heís not the most physically gifted. That would be Garcon. At 6-0, 210, with 4.4 speed, Garcon is the Indy receiver thatís most likely to burn teams with the big play. Consider that he averaged 16.3 yards per catch to Wayneís 12.6 and had three receptions of 40 yards or more to Wayneís one, despite 57 less targets. Of course, Wayne is still likely to lead the team again in targets, and tight end Dallas Clark (132 targets) is also going to get his share of looks. Moreover, Austin Collie earned Peyton Manningís trust as a solid possession and redzone receiver (six targets from inside the 10), and even Anthony Gonzalez, the teamís firstround pick in 2007, should be healthy again. But Garcon provides an explosive quality the others lack, and paired with Manning, itís easy to imagine him taking another step forward. With even 100 targets ó last year he had 92 ó an improved Garcon would be a major factor. And if Wayne were to get hurt ó the skyís the limit in this setup.

2009

Garcon will compete with Roy Hall and rookie Austin Collie for the No. 3 receiver role. He may have the most speed of the trio and could be a deep threat.
