Pierre Garcon hauls in two passes
by Chris Cwik |

Washington wide receiver Pierre Garcon caught two passes Thursday against the Giants.

Garcon managed 28 yards during the contest. Washington went down early, and quarterback Kirk Cousins had a lot of trouble getting his playmakers the ball. Cousins opted to throw to his running backs and tight ends for the most part. Garcon was targeted six times, which was actually the highest total of any pass catcher on the team.

Garcon will take on the Seahawks Week 5.

Receivers could go against the norm Thursday
by Chris Towers |

Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start.

Pierre Garcon plays a huge role in shootout
by Chris Towers |

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon emerged as Kirk Cousins' top target Sunday, in a  37-34 loss to the Eagles Sunday.

Garcon was targeted a team-high 16 times in the game, and led the team in all receiving categories. He hauled in 11 of those passes for 138 yards and a touchdown, all of which represent his best marks of the season.

Garcon was limited to just one reception for 12 yards in Cousins' first game at quarterback, but the two clearly developed a rapport Sunday. He has 22 receptions for 227 yards through three games, and will look to keep rolling when they face the Giants in Week 4 Thursday.

Pierre Garcon a non-factor in win
by Chris Towers |

On a day when everything was working for the Redskins, wide receiver Pierre Garcon had trouble getting going in a 41-10 win over the Jaguars in Week 2.

Garcon was basically a non-factor in the win, as he was targeted just four times, good for fourth on the team. He hauled in just one of those passes for 12 yards in the win.

Garcon appeared to have trouble getting on the same page as new quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is likely to remain the starter moving forward. He will look to bounce back in Week 3 against the Eagles.

Redskins working on 'home-run' passing game
by Michael Hurcomb |

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the team needs to do a better job of getting the football to wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson with more space to make plays, according to The Washington Post. On Wednesday, quarterback Robert Griffin III agreed.

"When you have weapons like Pierre and DeSean and Andre Roberts, these guys can really go deep down the field. You want to get them opportunities and we had a couple in (Week 1). We just didn’t come down with them," Griffin said. "Yeah, we have got to find ways to open those guys up more down the field. Don’t think that’s any secret. You want to be able to be efficient and hit the underneath stuff, but you also have to get those home-run shots in every now and then. We’ll work on getting that."
