Pierre Garcon | WR | Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon thinks he and WR DeSean Jackson can become the top receiving duo in the league this season. 'That's our goal -- to unseat (Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall),' Garcon said. 'But I guess last year their stats were the top two receivers on the same team -- to be up there in the top 10 category for catches and yards or however they play it out. They are two good receivers, but we'll be up there next year fighting for that position.'
Huddle Up: Garcon led all players in targets (182) and receptions (113) last season, and that was with RGIII not playing like his rookie self for much of the season. Jackson's deep speed will certainly open up more underneath routes for Garcon, and while the latter figures to fall short of his 2013 numbers, the duo very easily could rank among the top WR combos in the league.

The Washington Redskins could consider restructuring WR Pierre Garcon's contract this offseason in order to create around $4.5 million in salary cap space.
Huddle Up: Garcon isn't quite as important with DeSean Jackson in the mix, but that shouldn't be what the Redskins tell Pierre when they're trying to rework his deal.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (ankle) said Sunday, Nov. 17, that his ankle was hurting badly after the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Garcon exited the game early, eventually returning but he wasn't quite the same. He's definitely Robert Griffin III's go-to guy; if he's out not only does his fantasy stock drop but RG3's takes a hit as well.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon is the second-most targeted receiver in the NFL with 37 targets. He is fifth in the league with 127 yards after the catch.
Huddle Up: While he's still the Skins' WR to own, Garcon ranks as No. 2 fantasy wideout with the 15th-highest point total (35). He should only get better, though, as RGII shrugs off more rust.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said it is obvious that QB Robert Griffin III (knee) is not 100 percent at this time and that he is a different player than he was last season. 'He's not fully healthy, obviously,' Garcon said. 'He's running a little bit more. But last year's RGIII was a lot different from this year's RG because of his knee. It's not surprising. We've been talking about it the whole offseason. It's the same question every day on Monday. We can find something else to talk about.'
Huddle Up: Griffin hasn't looked right thus far this season. Perhaps he needs to get over a psychological barrier after injuring his knee in January as well. He should improve as the season goes along.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon said the toe that slowed him down through most of the 2012 season is completely healed.
Huddle Up: Garcon led the league in fantasy points per opportunity last season. The problem is he missed too much time to be of much help to his owners in the long run. When healthy, he is has massive upside.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon (foot), QB Robert Griffin III (knee), RB Alfred Morris and OT Trent Williams are not playing in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Garcon and Griffin can use the extra rest and recovery time, while the hard-running Morris hardly needs to absorb unneeded contact.

The Washingotn Redskins have their top four receiver spots set with WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss and Leonard Hankerson at the top of the depth chart. That leaves WR Donte' Stallworth (hamstring) and WR Aldrick Robinson battling for scraps as the fifth, and possibly sixth, wide receivers. Stallworth has fallen behind some due to a hamstring injury suffered Friday, July 26. WRs Devery Henderson and Dezmon Briscoe are also in the mix for jobs.
Huddle Up: Although he has health concerns of his own, Garcon remains the clear-cut No. 1 fantasy option here. Morgan, Moss and Hankerson can be mixed and matched into drafts and lineups depending on the size of your league and, of course, how the injury situation plays out with this group.

Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon has been the most reliable receiver in camp thus far.
Huddle Up: Garcon was impressive last year as well, when he was healthy. Thus far the injuries appear to be behind him, and Garcon should climb the fantasy draft board as Robert Griffin III's primary downfield target.
