Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackson risky for Week 5
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

If the last two weeks are any indication, as quarterback Kirk Cousins goes, so go wide receivers Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. Both were complete busts in Week 4, when Cousins threw four interceptions in a laugher against the Giants.

The correlation is especially troubling with the Redskins set to host defending champion Seattle in Week 5. The Seahawks, in case you haven't heard, are pretty stellar on defense. Though statistically, they don't rank as high against the pass as you'd expect thanks to some tough matchups against Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning to begin the season, Cousins isn't of the same caliber. And not all of them did so hot anyway. Rodgers threw for just 189 yards in Week 1.

If you're going to pick one, Garcon is probably the better choice since his role as the possession receiver should theoretically make him a little more consistent than the boom-or-bust Jackson, but neither Jamey Eisenberg nor Dave Richard has either higher than 32nd at wide receiver this week.

Pierre Garcon hauls in two passes
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

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 | CBSSports.com

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 | CBSSports.com

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 | CBSSports.com

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.
