49ers | Pierre Garcon delivers in loss

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 21:05:11 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with seven catches on 10 targets for a game-high 142 yards in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon continues to be Brian Hoyer's go-to option, and he has piled up 25 targets and 249 yards in three games. He should be safe to deploy as a WR3 going forward, especially in PPR formats.

49ers | Pierre Garcon held in check

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:05:14 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon finished with three catches for 26 yards in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon actually led the team in receiving for the second week in a row, and he is the closest thing San Francisco has to a dependable option in the passing game. He is a matchup-dependent play, but he has WR3 potential against the Rams in Week 3, especially in PPR formats.

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:49:48 -0700

San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon posted six grabs with game-highs of 81 yards and 10 targets in Week 1 against Carolina.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a pretty nice rapport with Brian Hoyer, serving as the most effective connection on the team. They'll look to build on the momentum in Week 2, but the 49ers face a tough road matchup against the Seahawks.

Redskins | Josh Doctson the new Pierre Garcon

Sun, 11 Jun 2017 17:14:20 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson will be used in the Z receiver role to start the season, head coach Jay Gruden said. Last year, San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon occupied the Z receiver role for the Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Doctson is unproven coming off an Achilles' injury that ruined his rookie campaign, but the former first-round pick has more than enough upside to grab as a WR5.

49ers | San Francisco brings aboard Pierre Garcon

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 16:05:06 -0800

Free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) signed a five-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: From the surface, this looks like a downgrade for Garcon's fantasy outlook, as he'll be joining a much inferior offense compared to the one he played with in Washington, but as a 49er, he's easily their best receiver and should see the most targets. Plus, Brian Hoyer could easily provide better quarterback play than what San Francisco had last year, so Garcon just may hang in there with WR3 prospects.

49ers | Pierre Garcon close to deal with 49ers

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 08:21:56 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is close to a deal with the San Francisco 49ers, which would pay him $16 million in the first year, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was solid with a 79-1,041-3 line last year. He doesn't jump off the page at you, but he's a midrange PPR receiver. Kyle Shanahan was his offensive coordinator in 2013, Garcon's best year, when he had 113 catches for 1,346 yards. He'll be a high-end WR3 in fantasy.

Redskins | Washington not talking to Pierre Garcon

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 11:48:00 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) hasn't "heard a word" from the Washington Redskins in regards to signing him to a deal prior to the start of free agency.

Fantasy Tip: There are any number of reasons as to why Washington hasn't reached out, the most likely of which is the chaos taking place in the Redskins' front office at the moment. Head coach Jay Gruden said last week he is comfortable with his receiving corps should Garcon and DeSean Jackson leave, and it is looking more and more like that will end up being the case. Even if Garcon ends up signing with a team that will allow him to be the clear No. 1 option, he'll be hard-pressed to be much more than a fantasy WR3.
