CSN Mid-Atlantic's Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashir expect the Redskins to retain Pierre Garcon.
Garcon is set to earn $8 million in salary and bonuses and count $10.2 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. Both numbers outpace Garcon's production by a large margin, but the Redskins are short on options at receiver. With not much high-end talent available in free agency or the draft, Washington may be best served overpaying Garcon for another season. Feb 1 - 11:27 AM

CSN Washington's Rich Tandler mentioned Pierre Garcon as a possible cap casualty.

DeSean Jackson is in the same boat. Both players are entering the last year of their contracts. Cutting Jackson and Garcon would obviously free up cap room, but this year's free agent market for wide receivers is incredibly uninspiring and Washington's in-house replacement options are just as bleak.
Jan 31 - 9:30 AM

Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-8 targets for 70 yards in the Redskins' Wild Card Round loss to the Packers.

Although Garcon's playmaking ability diminished, he was generally a reliable target for Kirk Cousins running short routes on the perimeter of Washington's offense while Jordan Reed handled the medium stuff and DeSean Jackson threatened deep. Garcon finished the regular season at 72-777-6 receiving. Garcon will be entering his age-30 season in 2016. This offseason, Redskins management will have to decide whether he's worth his $7.6 million base salary.
Jan 10 - 8:41 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 3-of-4 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against Dallas.

Garcon scored on a 39-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He was rested for the remainder of the game. Garcon will take a 72/777/6 line into the Wild Card Round.
Jan 3 - 7:30 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 7-of-12 targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 16 win over the Eagles.

Previously scoreless since October, Garcon has now hit pay dirt in back-to-back games. This week's score occurred on a stutter-and-go route midway through the fourth quarter, as Garcon beat two Eagles defenders for an over-the-shoulder lob by Kirk Cousins. This was Garcon's first game of 80 or more yards all season. The Redskins will close out their regular season in Week 17 at Dallas.

Pierre Garcon caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Redskins' Week 15 win over the Bills.

He had two monster catches, one for 19 yards on a 3rd-and-16 play and the other a 10-yard touchdown on a fade route for Kirk Cousins' fourth touchdown of the day. Garcon has settled in as the Redskins' No. 3 pass-game option behind Jordan Reed and DeSean Jackson. He'll be nothing more than a WR4 in a middling matchup with the Eagles next week.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 06:11:00 PM

Pierre Garcon secured 5-of-7 targets for 52 yards in the Redskins' Week 14 win over the Bears.

Garcon has consistently been a low-ceiling scorer since DeSean Jackson returned from his hamstring injury a month and a half ago. Garcon will be a WR4 when the Redskins face Rex Ryan's Bills in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 04:23:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 5-of-7 targets for 54 yards in the Redskins' Week 13 loss to the Cowboys on Monday night.

This has become what to expect from the chain-moving possession receiver. He's topped 70 yards on the season just once and hasn't caught more than five passes since Week 4. Garcon also hasn't visited pay dirt since Week 6. His biggest catch on Monday was a gutsy grab over the middle on 3rd-and-14 that moved the chains and set up an eventual Dustin Hopkins field goal. Garcon won't be a recommended start next week at the Bears.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 12:46:00 AM

Pierre Garcon caught 3-of-6 targets for 35 yards Week 12 against the Giants.

Garcon made a couple nice grabs on crossing routes, but he and the rest of the passing options were limited by the run-heavy game flow. Garcon has failed to record more than 75 receiving yards in a game this season and does not have more than five catches since Week 4. He does not need to be owned in shallow leagues.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 04:33:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 3-of-4 targets for 43 yards Week 11 against the Panthers.

Garcon was utilized down the field more often than he had been earlier in the season and made a nice third-down conversion in the second quarter, but he was limited by Washington's lack of plays. Garcon has still not gained more than 75 yards in a game this season, and he has not scored since Week 6. Garcon does not need to be owned in shallow leagues.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:08:00 PM

Pierre Garcon had two catches for 10 yards in Week 10 against the Saints.

Garcon finished behind both DeSean Jackson (4) and Jamison Crowder (5) in targets. He wasn't needed with Washington playing with a lead the entire second half. Garcon will remain a WR4 for Week 11 against Carolina.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 05:33:00 PM

Pierre Garcon caught 4-of-8 targets for 70 yards Week 9 against the Patriots.

Garcon struggled with drops on Sunday. The first pass of the game bounced off his hands and into the waiting arms of Logan Ryan, and he dropped a fourth-down conversion in the second quarter. Garcon did hook up with Kirk Cousins for a 36-yard gain, which is amazingly his longest reception of the season. He is now on pace for 82 catches for just 840 yards (10.2 YPR) and six touchdowns. Garcon will remain a low-ceiling WR4 next week against the Saints.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 05:26:00 PM

Pierre Garcon hauled in five of six targets for 55 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Buccaneers.

Three of his five catches came in the second half. Garcon hasn’t eclipsed 75 yards in any of his seven games this year. He’s basically been a touchdown or bust fantasy option. Unfortunately, today was the latter. Garcon won’t have much relevance when DeSean Jackson returns from his hamstring injury. The Redskins are off next week but they’ll play the Patriots at Foxboro in Week 9.
Sun, Oct 25, 2015 05:45:00 PM

Pierre Garcon secured 5-of-8 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 6 loss to the Jets.

Garcon's fantasy day was lucky to be salvaged by a goal-line touchdown; he was facing Antonio Cromartie and Darrelle Revis. With DeSean Jackson tentatively due back in Week 7 against the Bucs, Garcon's value will fall into the WR3/flex range. He's been a borderline WR2 option with D-Jax on the shelf.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 05:42:00 PM

Pierre Garcon secured 3-of-8 targets for 51 yards in the Redskins' Week 5 loss to the Falcons.

A number of errant early-game throws by Kirk Cousins had Garcon reaching for passes that he ultimately did not secure. It was a disappointing box score for Garcon with Jordan Reed (concussion) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) both inactive. Jamison Crowder (8-86) was the Redskins' leading receiver against the Falcons. Set to face Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie in Week 6, Garcon will be a low-end WR3 in that difficult matchup.
