Fantasy owners waiting to see whether the return of Robert Griffin III for the
Garcon was targeted five times in the game, which tied him for second on the team, but he did little with that work. He hauled in three passes for just 15 yards, a total six other players bested Sunday. It was Garcon's fifth game with four or fewer Fantasy points in nine outings this season.
Garcon was a huge part of the team's offense a year ago, racking up 113 receptions on 184 targets, but he isn't on pace for anything close to that. Heading into the team's Week 10 bye, Garcon is on pace for just 110 targets and 74.7 catches. At this point Garcon can hardly be counted on as a starting Fantasy option for any given game, including Week 11 against the Buccaneers.
The 15 yards were Garcon's second-lowest total this season. He had one catch for 12 yards in Week 2 against the Jaguars.
The Redskins are on a bye Week 10 before returning to action Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay.
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.
