"We’re definitely going to be around. Probably go to Miami. I’m trying to talk him into going to Miami. South Florida is home."
Garcon, who at one point last season said the Redskins "suck at passing," has high hopes for 2014.
"We have a good offense. We definitely have great players," Garcon said. "We have a good tight end, a good running back, a good quarterback, good receivers. What else do you need on offense?"
Garcon also became just the third player in NFL history to catch at least five passes in all 16 games.
He finishes the season with 113 receptions for 1,346 yards (both career highs) and five touchdowns (with two coming in the final three games). Garcon had five 100-yard games this season, and only dipped below 50 receiving yards in a game three times.
Garcon's Week 17 opponent, the Giants, have been neither excellent nor poor against wide receivers this season. When the teams met in Week 13, Garcon caught nine passes (on 12 targets) for 61 yards. But that was before Cousins took over and made Garcon his lifeline. In Week 16, Cousins threw for 197 yards; 144 of those went to Garcon. It would make sense for the Giants to blanket Garcon in Week 17, but the Cowboys managed to minimize the overall damage by letting Garcon go wild in Week 16, so it could also be business as usual.
With championships and season point totals on the line in Week 17, there has to be something more than theoretical guesswork involved to make a case to sit someone who has been so good since a quarterback change. Garcon should be started in most Fantasy formats.
Garcon was the main target of quarterback Kirk Cousins, receiving 18 targets. He finished the game with 144 yards. With the game, Garcon broke the team's record for receptions in a season. He also managed to score on an 8 yard pass in the third quarter. Garcon will take on the Giants Week 17.
Dallas hasn't been strong against opposing wideouts, allowing them to average 25.00 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has given up 30 passing touchdowns. Yardage has also been a problem, as Dallas has allowed 190.93 receiving yards to wideouts per game. In the first meeting between the two teams, Garcon caught six balls for 69 yards.
In four career games against Dallas, Garcon has performed admirably. He average 64.3 receiving yards per game, and has scored two touchdowns. Garcon emerged as Kirk Cousins favorite target last week, catching seven passes for 129 yards and a score. He could be looking at an equally strong game Week 16 against Dallas. He's a strong Fantasy start.
