Redskins | Pierre Garcon needs ball more

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 12:22:44 -0800

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon needs to get the ball more in space so he can make big plays, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Garcon saw his highest single-game target total (9) since late September with Colt McCoy starting again in Week 13, but still caught just three passes for nine yards. Garcon isn't worth starting in any format until he can bounce back from the slump he's in.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon backs Kirk Cousins

Wed, 15 Oct 2014 10:11:08 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the team has plenty of confidence in QB Kirk Cousins despite the team's four-game losing streak in which Cousins has struggled mightily at times. "He's just taking in a lot of stuff right now, but once he gets through this, honestly, he'll be good to go," said Garcon. Cousins has 18 touchdowns, 18 interceptions and five fumbles in 13 career games. Cousins is expected to start in Week 7 against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins will cost $7,000 (14.0% of cap) at FantasyScore this week. Although he has a nice matchup against the Tennessee Titans, it's hard to place too much trust in him for your lineups.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon quiet again

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 21:17:15 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon had two catches for 23 yards on three targets Monday, Oct. 2. He has caught two passes or less in three of his five games this season.

Fantasy Tip: A year after leading the NFL with 113 catches, Garcon has been irrelevant at times this season. The chemistry between he and Kirk Cousins could be an issue, but whatever the reason, Garcon is tough to trust at FantasyScore right now.

Redskins | Pierre Garcon doing little with a lot

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 11:23:05 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has caught 24 passes on 38 targets through four games. The 38 targets are sixth most in the league while the 24 catches are good enough for eighth most.

Fantasy Tip: That being said, Garcon is only WR26 in non-PPR leagues and WR21 in PPR leagues. He's not gaining many yards when he does catch the ball and he's only scored once. He's a risky option on FantasyScore at$7,000 against the Seattle Seahawks.
