  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Officially hits IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    The 49ers placed Garcon (neck) on injured reserve Saturday. San Francisco general manager John Lynch revealed earlier this week that Garcon would be shut down for the season with the neck injury, but the 49ers waited a couple of days before making the IR move official. The loss of Garcon, who paced all 49ers pass catchers with 40 receptions and 500 receiving yards, should open up more targets for the team's complementary receivers, with the likes of Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson all perhaps in line to see their volumes in the passing game increase.

  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Headed to injured reserve
    By RotoWire Staff

    According to general manager John Lynch, Garcon (neck) is being placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Garcon's neck injury was not originally believed to be serious and he expected to suit up Week 9 against the Cardinals. Apparently the situation is not nearly that simple. Garcon's 67 targets on the year are 21 more than any other 49ers pass catcher and his absence leaves a major hole in the team's offense. Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson can all expect to be more involved through the air going forward, but it wouldn't be surprising to see San Francisco sign a free agent wide receiver, especially since the trade deadline has now passed. Garcon will end the season with 40 receptions for 500 yards and no scores to his name.

  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Not practicing Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Garcon (neck) isn't practicing Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. Garcon injured his neck late in the second quarter of Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Eagles and never made it back into the game. He said afterward that he expects to be OK for the Week 9 contest against the Cardinals, but his absence from Wednesday's practice casts some doubt. The winless 49ers have little incentive to rush Garcon back into action, as his five-year contract suggests he's a part of the team's long-term plan despite his advanced age (31) by NFL standards. The Niners may have found another piece to that puzzle Tuesday when they acquired quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots in exchange for a second-round pick. While head coach Kyle Shanahan preached patience with the young signal caller after the acquisition, Garoppolo nonetheless should pick up some starts before the end of the season, likely amounting to an upgrade over current starter C.J. Beathard.

  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Expects to play in Week 9
    By RotoWire Staff

    Garcon (neck) said he expects to play in Week 9 against the Cardinals, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Garcon was deemed questionable to return after exiting late in the second quarter of Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Eagles. He never made it back into the game, finishing with season-low marks for catches (two), receiving yards (17) and targets (four). While his postgame comments suggest the injury isn't too serious, Garcon didn't actually offer any specifics. Aldrick Robinson likely would pick up most of the vacated snaps if the 31-year-old wideout were to miss any time. Should he avoid a Week 9 absence, Garcon likely would draw shadow coverage from Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson.

  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Hauls in five passes
    By RotoWire Staff

    Garcon gained 39 yards on five receptions (seven targets) in Sunday's 40-10 loss to Dallas. The 49ers fell behind 14-0 just four minutes into this one, but they still only managed 235 yards through the air despite having 38 pass attempts. A switch at quarterback hasn't resulted in improved passing numbers yet, leaving Garcon with another pedestrian outing as well as another week without a touchdown. The veteran is averaging 9.0 targets and 5.4 receptions through seven games, so he should stay relevant in PPR formats. That said, Garcon's middle-of-the-road yardage outputs and lack of red-zone looks make him a fringe option in standard leagues next week against Philadelphia.
