Garcon hauled in two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Lions. Garcon had a very quiet day when he had an opportunity to produce big numbers with Jordan Reed (concussion) and DeSean Jackson battling a shoulder injury. Look for the 30-year-old to bounce back this week against the Bengals.
Garcon led the team with 11 targets, six receptions and 77 receiving yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles. Garcon managed a long gain of 22 yards, but he operated primarily as a possession receiver and averaged 12.8 yards per catch as the Redskins leaned more heavily on the run. He is averaging just 51.2 receiving yards per game this season, but he has been targeted 18 times over the last two weeks and could be a serviceable fantasy play in Week 7 versus a beatable Lions secondary.
Garcon caught five of seven targets for a team-leading 56 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 16-10 win over the Ravens. Garcon's first touchdown of the season came at a pivotal time, as his 21-yard score in the third quarter helped decide what was a close game. Garcon has been an underwhelming fantasy option this season, as the 56-yard effort was actually his second-highest output, and the seven targets tied a season-high. He will look to build off of this performance in Week 6 against the Eagles.
Garcon hauled in four receptions for 39 yards in Sunday's 31-20 win over the Browns. Garcon continues to have a quiet season as his targets have been few and far between. Between the likes of DeSean Jackson, Jordan Reed, and Jamison Crowder, Washington has more wideout options compared to recent years, which could leave the veteran Garcon as the odd-man-out. He'll look to return to fantasy relevancy in Week 5 as the team heads to Baltimore to take on the Ravens.
Garcon tallied five receptions for 59 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants. 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.
