Player Outlook

Pierre Garcon wasn't the most high-profile free agent signing this offseason, but his move to San Francisco could be one of the best for Fantasy owners. Garcon left the Redskins for the 49ers on a five-year, $47.5 million deal, including $17 million guaranteed. He will be the No. 1 receiver in a Kyle Shanahan offense, which has been good for Fantasy players during Shanahan's days as an offensive coordinator, including Andre Johnson in Houston, Julio Jones in Atlanta and Garcon himself in Washington. In 2013, Garcon was the No. 1 receiver for the Redskins when Shanahan was calling plays, and he had 113 catches for 1,346 yards and five touchdowns on 184 targets. We don't expect Garcon to be that productive -- he's 30 now and will have questionable quarterback play with Brian Hoyer as the likely starter -- but he should be featured quite a bit. He's coming off a year in 2016 with 79 catches for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns on 116 targets, and he should come close to that production, if not exceed it. Garcon should be considered a sleeper with a late-round pick in all leagues.

Player News
  • Garcon caught three passes (five targets) for 26 yards in Sunday's 12-9 loss to Seattle. Garcon -- along with the entire San Francisco air attack -- was quiet in a tough matchup against the Seahawks' vaunted secondary. The 49ers have yet to score an offensive touchdown through the first two weeks of the season, a trend that will limit the veteran wideout's fantasy potential if it continues. That said, Garcon leads the team with 15 targets and nine receptions, making him a PPR option in the right matchups.

  • Garcon caught six of 10 targets for 81 yards in Sunday's 23-3 loss to the Panthers. While the entire offense struggled Sunday, Garcon at least showed to have developed solid chemistry with QB Brian Hoyer. In fact, his 10 targets were four more than any of his teammates received. While Garcon could be a target monster as the clear top dog in this receiving corps, Hoyer's limitations as a passer will likely be a thorn in Garcon's side all season long. Next week's matchup with the Seahawks could get ugly.

  • Garcon brought in six of seven targets for 64 yards in Sunday's 32-31 preseason loss to the Vikings. The Niners' projected No. 1 receiver certainly looked the part Sunday, pacing the club in catches while checking in second in receiving yards. Garcon had notched just one catch for 11 yards over his first two exhibitions, so his effort against the Vikings' first-team defense was certainly encouraging. The veteran wideout is intimately familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive system from their time together in Washington, so he's projected for a high-volume role in the coming campaign. Garcon is expected to sit in next Thursday's exhibition finale and next take the field in Week 1 versus the Panthers.

  • Garcon failed to secure his only target in Friday's 27-17 preseason win over the Chiefs. Garcon is fully expected to open the season as one of the starting wideouts, so it wasn't surprising to see him play limited snaps in the opener. The veteran pass catcher is intimately familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme from their two seasons together in Washington, giving him an inherent advantage going into his first campaign out west. Garcon is likely to see more action in the 49ers' second preseason tilt against the Broncos.

  • 49ers' Pierre Garcon: Officially signs with 49ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    The 49ers officially inked Garcon to a five-year contract Thursday. Aside from six games missed in his first season with the Redskins in 2012, Garcon has been a modicum of health in his other eight campaigns, missing five contests otherwise and none over the past four years. During that four-year span, he led the NFL in receptions once with 113 in 2013, received between 105 and 181 targets each season, and surpassed 1,000 yards on two occasions. On a sour note, he's topped out at six touchdowns in a given campaign, so his value is largely contingent upon a steady volume and avoiding the injury report. In San Francisco, he'll be reunited with head coach Kyle Shanahan, which should help Garcon sustain relevance in his third stop as a professional.
