Garcon remains on track to be cleared from last year's neck injury. Barring a setback, he should be ready for OTAs. Playing a full season with Jimmy Garoppolo, Garcon has potential to improve on his 1,000-yard pace from 2017. Apr 7 - 5:20 PM

Pierre Garcon (neck) is on track for OTAs.

There was some concern over Garcon's status as a 31-year-old coming off a neck injury. He's expected to be cleared for the 49ers' offseason program and isn't a cut candidate despite a $9M-plus cap number. Garcon was on pace for a 1,000-yard season before going down in Week 8. With a full year as the No. 1 receiver in a Jimmy Garoppolo offense, Garcon's stock is on the rise entering 2018.
Jan 7 - 9:02 AM

49ers placed WR Pierre Garcon on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

GM John Lynch made the announcement in a Thursday radio interview, and confirmed Garcon would not be a candidate for return. As expected, 31-year-old Garcon had been operating as the 49ers' No. 1 receiver, catching 40 passes for 500 yards through eight games. He was on pace for the third 1,000-yard campaign of his career. His loss leaves the 49ers with a jumble of bodies at wideout, with Marquise Goodwin, Trent Taylor and Aldrick Robinson all vying for work. Perhaps TE George Kittle will be out of the doghouse now. Neck injuries are tricky for any football player, but especially someone who is 30-plus. Garcon is due $6.62 million in 2018.

Pierre Garcon (neck) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Garcon is beginning to look on the wrong side of questionable. The 49ers will be left with the motliest of crews at receiver if Garcon can't suit up against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners need to be making other plans at their WR2 spot, though we should get final word on Friday.

Pierre Garcon (neck) didn't practice Wednesday.

Garcon went down late in the fourth quarter last week. The missed practice is a concern for his Week 9 status. San Francisco will be forced to go with a three-wide set of Marquise Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson, and Trent Taylor if Garcon doesn't get cleared.

Pierre Garcon caught 2-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Eagles.

Garcon appeared to injure his neck while crashing into Eagles defensive coach Ken Flajole on a late hit at the sideline in the second quarter. Both men were shaken up, and Garcon barely played in the second half. It's unclear if it was more because of the injury or the 49ers trailing by 20-plus points. But it's something to watch on Garcon this week ahead of a date with Arizona.

Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-7 targets for 49 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Cowboys.

The targets were Garcon's second fewest of the season, while the yards were his third fewest. The Cowboys were teeing off rookie C.J. Beathard in his first career start, making 49ers momentum hard to come by. It's going to be a rollercoaster with Beathard under center, but Garcon has a plus Week 8 matchup in the Eagles. He'll be in the WR2 mix for that one.

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.

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.
Sun, Oct 8, 2017 05:45:00 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.
Sun, Oct 1, 2017 08:46:00 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.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 08:30:00 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.
Sun, Sep 10, 2017 08:10:00 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.
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 11:59:00 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.
