Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-12 targets for 55 yards in Week 6 against Washington.
Garcon saw heavy targets for the second straight week, but remained victim to bad quarterback play. The 49ers benched Brian Hoyer in the second quarter in favor of C.J. Beathard. Garcon is the clear No. 1 option with both quarterbacks, but Beathard could improve his outlook going forward. Garcon gets a matchup with Dallas in Week 7. Oct 15 - 5:15 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 8-of-11 targets for 94 yards in the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Colts.

Garcon looked like he was going to have a monstrous afternoon after catching five balls for 51 yards on the opening drive, but the Colts got things together with him and started allowing all the other Niners to do what they pleased. After returning to Indy on Sunday to face one of his previous two teams, Garcon will get another revenge game next week at the Redskins as a WR3.
Oct 8 - 5:45 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 4-of-8 targets for 36 yards in the 49ers' Week 4 loss to the Cardinals.

Garcon was draped in Patrick Peterson's coverage much of the afternoon and dropped a couple catchable passes. He has now alternated strong games with subpar ones the first four weeks. Garcon will look to bounce back to respectable WR3 status next week against the Colts in Indianapolis.
Oct 1 - 8:46 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 7-of-10 targets for 142 yards against the Rams in a Week 3 loss.

After just three catches in Week 2, Brian Hoyer went to his guy on passes at all depths, including a 59-yard deep ball down the sideline. Garcon is one of the most sure-handed guys in the league with just one drop on his 79 catches last year, so it looks like he's gained the trust of his coaches and quarterback. While he gets a tougher matchup against the Cardinals in Week 4, he should still be viewed as a strong option in PPR leagues and looks to be trending up after a slow start.

Pierre Garcon hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to the Seahawks.

Garcon did see some of Richard Sherman, but his struggles are more on Brian Hoyer and the passing offense as a whole than the defense. A target hog, he should find much more success in better matchups. Garcon will be a WR3 on Thursday night against the Rams.
Sep 17 - 8:30 PM

Pierre Garcon hauled in 6-of-10 targets for 81 yards in the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Panthers.

As could have been expected before the season, Garcon was the only receiver to really get anything going for the 49ers. His 10 targets easily paced the team, and he was the only 49er to gain more than 15 yards on a reception. Garcon should be a volume-based play all season long, but he will be difficult to trust next week in Seattle.
Sep 10 - 8:10 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 6-of-7 targets for 64 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

For fantasy-league chasers of Garcon's projected volume, this game checked off boxes. The 49ers ran Garcon on frequent slant patterns and high-percentage routes designed for Garcon to show his run-after-catch ability. Garcon has a chance to be a true target monster and is worth drafting in all leagues as a WR3.
Aug 27 - 11:59 PM

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Pierre Garcon's leadership is one of the reasons he wanted to sign him.

Shanahan said everyone can see Garcon is a good player, but his effort and how that affects the rest of the roster makes him even better. "Pierre's not going to say much, but you know he's going to go out there and fight every single play no matter the situation," Shanahan said. "That elevates everyone around him." Considering the state of the roster after two dreadful seasons in a row, that kind of leadership will be valuable. Garcon also has target monster potential in San Francisco.

49ers agreed to terms with Pierre Garcon, formerly of the Redskins, on a five-year, $47.5-million contract with $17 million fully guaranteed.

While it is being reported as a "five-year deal," the contract is really a two-year agreement with options the final three seasons. Still, it is a lot of money for a 30-year-old receiver, but Garcon's game should age well and he has a history of success in new coach Kyle Shanahan's offense -- he caught 113 passes while the pair were together with the Redskins in 2013. If the 49ers figure out the quarterback situation, Garcon could be a top-20 fantasy receiver in 2017.
Mar 9 - 12:19 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 49ers are "setting their sights" on free agent Pierre Garcon.

Kyle Shanahan is trying his best to make the 49ers a version of Redskins West. Working to acquire Kirk Cousins as his franchise quarterback, Shanahan could also be targeting Garcon and even DeSean Jackson as free agents. Garcon's first two seasons in D.C. were with Shanahan, and Garcon caught a career-high 113 balls in 2013 for 1,346 yards and five scores. If he lands in the Bay Area as Shanahan's starting "X" again, Garcon could be a top-20 fantasy receiver. Garcon turns 31 this year but looked to have plenty left in 2016.
Mar 8 - 8:27 AM

Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan reports impending free agent Pierre Garcon requested a trade during the 2016 season.

The report was confirmed by ESPN's John Keim, who over the weekend wrote Garcon is "gone." The request along with the seeming lack of communication between the two sides over the last couple months suggests Keim is correct. The request also suggests the organizational dysfunction currently bubbling to the surface has been simmering behind the scenes for quite some time.

Mar 6 - 7:16 PM

ESPN's Redskins reporter John Keim believes impending free agent Pierre Garcon is "gone."

It certainly seems that way after Garcon said he has "not heard anything at all" from the Redskins. Garcon led Washington in targets, catches, and yards in 2016. He is behind guys like Alshon Jeffery and former teammate DeSean Jackson, but Garcon should still see plenty of interest on the open market.

Impending free agent Pierre Garcon confirmed he hasn't heard anything from the Redskins this offseason.

"I have not heard anything at all," Garcon said. "But everybody does strategic moves right before free agency, or right during free agency, so I couldn’t tell you what they’re up to." Garcon led the Redskins in receiving yards and catches last season. With Garcon and DeSean Jackson both likely to move on, 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson could play a huge role in the Redskins' passing game if he can get and stay healthy.
Mar 3 - 2:39 PM

ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins still have not spoken with impending free agent Pierre Garcon.

Keim has "long doubted" Garcon will return, and the situation in trending in that direction. If talks are going to happen, they likely will be this week at the Combine, but that is cutting it close with the legal tampering period set to open next week. The Redskins look likely to lose both Garcon and DeSean Jackson.
Mar 2 - 8:35 AM

The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers "would not be surprised" if the Cardinals showed interest in free agent Pierre Garcon.

Larry Fitzgerald is on his last legs in the desert, though he is still playing at a high level. Michael Floyd has been let go, while John Brown couldn't get his hamstrings right last season due to sickle-cell issues. Jaron Brown tore his ACL. A once-promising receiving corps now needs an injection of talent. Garcon is expected to command $9 million per year.
