Pierre Garcon hoping return of RG3 proves helpful
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Redskins are likely to turn the reins of the offense back over to Robert Griffin III in Week 9 against the Vikings, and that should be a good thing for Pierre Garcon's Fantasy value moving forward.

Garcon averaged 78.2 yards per game in Griffin's 13 starts last season, 63.3 in Griffin's rookie year and had 77 yards on 10 receptions in Griffin's lone full game this season. In comparison, Garcon has averaged just 52.3 yards per game in seven games without Griffin this season, and was targeted just 10 times in two games with Colt McCoy at the helm, including just four times last week.

Griffin's return should not be viewed as a panacea for Garcon's flagging Fantasy value, but his return should settle things down for Washington's passing game. Griffin is, at the very least, a better passer than McCoy and his presence should open things up for the passing game. This isn't a great matchup for Garcon, but we should at least get to see the Redskins' passing game at full strength for the first time since Week 2. Keep an eye on the rapport between the duo to see if Garcon might be in line for a big second half.

Pierre Garcon struggling in reduced role
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon has settled into a consistent role in the team's offense recently, but that hasn't led to good results, as he struggled yet again in Week 8 against the Cowboys.

Garcon was held to below 50 yards receiving for the fourth time in five games Monday, as he hauled in just four passes for 47 yards. And, while he had been able to salvage his previous two games with touchdowns, Garcon was held out of the end zone in Week 8, giving him his sixth single-digit Fantasy scoring effort in eight games.

Garcon has just one 100-yard game this season, and has five or fewer receptions in each of his last five games. At this point, he is clearly not the primary option in the passing game, and has become extremely touchdown dependent as a result, averaging 43.2 yards per game over the last five. Garcon has never been a big touchdown guy, so Fantasy owners should probably only consider starting him against good matchups.

Pierre Garcon relatively quiet on MNF
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon caught all four of his targets for 47 yards in Monday's win at Dallas. Garcon's biggest play came when he flashed across the middle for a 23-yard gain to start Washington's winning drive in overtime.

Garcon ranked third on the team in targets, with DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed drawing seven targets each. Garcon visits the Vikings in Week 9.

Better to sit DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been hit or miss from week to week, but you can't get around the fact that in three of the last five weeks, he's gone for more than 100 yards and a touchdown.

The problem is Kirk Cousins was his quarterback for all three of those games. The Redskins are turning to Colt McCoy for Week 8 at Dallas.

That's bad news for all the Redskins wide receivers, but especially Jackson, whose production is mostly tied to his ability to beat the defense deep. McCoy isn't one for going deep. He averaged 5.9 yards per attempt in his last year as an NFL starter, and aside from that short pass that Pierre Garcon turned into 70-yard touchdown, McCoy had 10 completions for just 58 yards in Week 7.

That doesn't mean Garcon is safe. Apart from that score, he had four catches for 17 yards in Week 7 and averaged just 27.3 yards in his previous three games. He should fare better than Jackson with McCoy, but ultimately, an inferior quarterback isn't going to do him good.

You might want to sit both in Fantasy for the time being.

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.
