Garcon caught three passes for 43 yards in Week 11. Garcon has failed to record more than five receptions since Week 4. He appears behind DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed.
Garcon caught both of his targets for 10 yards during Sunday's win against the Saints. Garcon's targets may take a slight hit with the return of DeSean Jackson. He has averaged eight targets per game coming into Sunday. He has failed to reach the end zone the last three games.
Garcon caught four passes on eight targets for 70 yards Sunday against the Patriots. Things started about as badly as possible for Garcon, as his first target went through his hands and was picked off for quarterback Kirk Cousins' only interception of the game. Garcon did lead the team in receiving yards and co-led in targets, with DeSean Jackson catching just three passes for 15 yards in his return from a hamstring injury, though Garcon has failed to reach the 75-yard mark in every game this season. Jackson is likely to get an increase in looks as he recovers more from his hamstring injury, which would eat into Garcon's opportunities, though the team has an excellent Week 10 matchup against a Saints defense that has allowed the most receiving touchdowns in the league this season.
Garcon caught 5-of-6 targets for 55 yards in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers. The veteran continues to see consistent usage, with at least five catches in all but one game this year, but he simply isn't generating any plays down the field, as his season-high of 74 yards would suggest. The impending return of DeSean Jackson could loosen things up for Garcon on the outside, but he's no more than a middling fantasy option the way things currently stand. The Redskins will take on the Patriots on the road following next week's bye.
Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon (knee) had five catches on eight targets for 28 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jets. Garcon opened the scoring Sunday by catching a two-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins, and he had as many targets in the first half as he did in both of the previous two games, but the Washington Post's Mike Jones notes that Garcon was not targeted at all in the second half despite the Redskins falling behind and needing to throw. His touchdown was his second in the last three games, though he could take a little hit to his targets if DeSean Jackson returns from his hamstring injury in Week 7 against the Bucs.
