So many questions for Pierre Garcon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After three straight games with 31 yards or fewer, Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon finally looked like himself again Week 7 against Tennessee, catching five passes for 87 yards and a touchdown.

Of course, if not for one fluky play in which he beat a defender on a simple curl route and took the ball 70 yards for a score, he would have had just five catches for about 25 yards and no touchdowns, burning his Fantasy owners yet again.

So do you hold that against him? Well, if the Redskins decide their starting quarterback is Colt McCoy, who was on the other end of that play and led the team to a come-from-behind victory, more big plays probably aren't in Garcon's future. McCoy had 10 other completions in Week 7, none for more than 10 yards. And remember, that one probably shouldn't have been for more than 10 yards either.

Of course, Garcon wasn't exactly clicking with Kirk Cousins. Cousins has more of an ability to stretch the field, but Garcon has been better on shorter routes over the last couple years.

So who really knows? If you have depth at wide receiver, you may want to play it safe and sit Garcon for Week 8 at Dallas just to see how the situation plays out.

Pierre Garcon takes reception 70 yards to the house Week 7
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon recorded a 70-yard touchdown, which was the third-longest of his career, during a 19-17 win Week 7 vs. Tennessee. Garcon finished with a team-high 87 receiving yards on five catches.

Garcon was having a pretty quiet game until Colt McCoy replaced Kirk Cousins at quarterback in the second half. Garcon, who had one catch for 5 yards in the first half, took McCoy's first pass of the game 70 yards for a touchdown to put Washington ahead 13-10. It was Garcon's third touchdown and second in as many games.

The 87 yards were the second-highest total this season for Garcon, who had 138 yards in Week 3. The Redskins are back in action Week 8 at Dallas.

Coach seeks to get Redskins WR Garcon going early in games
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Jay Gruden is hoping to get Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon rolling earlier in games, the team website has reported.

"Pierre is a major part of this offense," Gruden said. "We need to make sure we get him more touches earlier in games."

Garcon has proven inconsistent this season. He racked up 21 receptions for 215 yards and one touchdown in Weeks 1 and 3 combined, but has just nine catches for 94 yards and one score in the other four games combined.

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon scores touchdown in Week 6 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught four of his six targets for 31 yards and a touchdown in his team's 30-20 loss to the Cardinals in Week 6.

Garcon was able to give the offense life with a five-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to pull the Redskins to within three points, but quarterback Kirk Cousins threw his third interception of the quarter to lock up the team's fourth straight loss. It was the third straight quiet performance for Garcon, as he had managed only 51 yards on four receptions in his previous two games combined. He heads into a Week 7 matchup with the Titans with 30 receptions, 309 yards and two touchdowns.

Andre Roberts picks up Pierre Garcon's slack
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

While Pierre Garcon was targeted only three times Week 5 against Seattle, fellow Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts was targeted a season-high nine times, catching five passes for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Despite the lack of yardage, it's the kind of performance that stands out in a box score, especially against one of the league's best defenses.

But it's not like Roberts' role changed. He played about two-thirds of the Redskins' snaps, which was no different than usual. Most likely, the increased production was just a side effect of Richard Sherman covering Garcon. Quarterback Kirk Cousins needed somewhere else to throw the ball.

In other words, it won't be the norm for either Roberts or Garcon. Roberts is a big enough part of the Redskins' passing game to have some value in deeper points-per-reception formats, but he should remain unowned in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
