Redskins | Pierre Garcon could fetch $9 million in FA

Sat, 11 Feb 2017 17:00:10 -0800

Impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to receive offers in the neighborhood of $9 million per year, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: The Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers are among the teams expected to be among the most interested. The price tag would suggest teams view him as a No. 1 receiver, but his best fit would be as a No. 2. It's going to take a bit of a perfect storm in order to break the bank, and he's likely to be no more than a fantasy WR4 regardless of where he lands.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon a hot commodity

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 18:17:23 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon is expected to be pursued by the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon can still do damage underneath as a possession receiver, and he could be a WR3 in PPR formats if he lands with a decent offense. If he is stuck with a rookie quarterback, he should be viewed more as a WR4.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon wants to remain a Redskin

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 15:45:15 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he wants to remain with the team next season.

Fantasy Tip: He also wants to get paid, as he should, after registering his fourth straight season with at least 68 receptions and his first 1,000-yard campaign since 2013. Not only that, Garcon has proven to be very durable, having played in all 16 games in four of his five seasons with Washington. However, the Redskins are notorious for lowballing impending free agents, and if they're not careful, he could wind up with a new club in 2017. At least a handful of teams should be interested.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon hasn't talked to Redskins

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 07:36:27 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Pierre Garcon (Redskins) still hasn't talked with the Redskins as of Tuesday, Feb. 7, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon had a solid 79-1,041-3 campaign in 2016. He turns 31 in August, but there appears to be tread left on the tires. He's a WR3 or a WR4 in fantasy depending on where he lands.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon says he is not possession WR

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 11:58:30 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said he does not want to be called a possession receiver because he can do more than what the Redskins asked him to do in 2016. "I definitely want people to stop thinking I'm a possession receiver because they gave me a job to do," Garcon said. "That doesn't mean I can't go deep and I can't run fast, because I ran fast and went deep this year more than I probably ever did. Every year is different from the playcalling. But I want people to stop thinking that I'm a slow guy, and I'm not slowing down anytime soon."

Fantasy Tip: Garcon will be a free agent this offseason and should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market. He finished the 2016 season with 79 catches for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. Garcon should have a good chance to be a starter for a team next season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

Redskins | 'Solid chance' Pierre Garcon does not return

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 09:30:27 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is unlikely to return for less than the $7.6 million he earned this season, according to ESPN's John Keim.

Fantasy Tip: That kind of stance usually indicates the player's agent has been able to find enough potential bidders, so a parting of ways appears likely. Then again, the first-round selection of Josh Doctson in the draft last spring pretty much sealed his fate anyway. Garcon showed he is still a very capable No. 2 receiver in the NFL and should be open to find a team willing to meet his asking price this spring.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon finishes for 94 yards

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 13:46:06 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon caught four passes for 92 yards against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon has been a reliable option for owners this season and has posted at least 50 yards in six of his last seven games. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game and should be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon was credited with his first drop of the season, but he was still very productive. He remains a solid WR3 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against the Chicago Bears.

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 19:13:25 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon had his first drop of the season in the first half of the Week 15 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The sure-handed Garcon has been a sure thing in the receiving game this season, posting four or more receptions in each of his past six, and 10 of the past 11 games. He had two receptions for 28 yards on five targets in the first 30 minutes.
