2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and the Redskins see some beauty in Garcon because they paid him to be a number one wide receiver although he has never fulfilled that role. In Garcon, the Redskins add a player to their roster with enough talent in terms of size, speed and ability to adjust to poorly throw passes but one who has frustrated his coaches and quarterbacks with his frequent drops and questionable route running. If Garcon can learn the nuances of the position and avoid mental lapses, he could emerge as one of the league’s top receivers. Of course, he will need rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III to be an accurate passer early in his rookie season for Garcon to top 1,000 receiving yards for the first time in his career. It is also worth noting that despite being on the receiving end of passes from perhaps the most accurate quarterback in the history of the league (Peyton Manning), Garcon caught just 55.1% of his passes during his first three years. On the plus side, he had a career year in 2011 catching passes from the likes of Kerry Collins, Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky. That provides some comfort and indicates that even with Griffin under center, Garcon’s downside (barring injury) figures to be his 2011 production where he finished as the 22nd ranked fantasy wide receiver. Although, that ranking was burnished by a number of injuries and poor performances to receivers across the league. Garcon should be considered a low-end WR3 with upside entering 2012.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury DeSean Jackson not expected to play Wk 7     -- Wed Oct 21 9:05 am --

Hamstring injury
Redskins sources: WR DeSean Jackson is not expected to play Sunday against Tampa with a lingering hamstring injury. (Britt McHenry on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Jackson suffered a setback in practice last week and hasn't seen the field since Week 1. Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder will continue to be the top wideouts for Kirk Cousins.
Injury DeSean Jackson has setback with hamstring     -- Thu Oct 15 5:40 pm --

Team hopeful he will play in Week 6
Things were moving in the right direction for WR DeSean Jackson to return to action against the Jets this week, but Thursday’s practice may have thrown a wrench in the works. Redskins HC Jay Gruden said, via Liz Clarke of the Washington Post, that Jackson was pulled out of Thursday’s session after feeling a “twinge” in his injured hamstring while trying to run down a deep pass. Jackson hurt the hamstring in the season opener in a similar fashion and has missed the last four weeks while recovering. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: Gruden is hopeful about Jackson being available to face the Jets, but Thursday’s setback suggests he'll probably limited even if he suits up. In the likely event he sits, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder can be viewed as low-end WR3s based solely on the amount of targets they are likely to see, even in a difficult matchup.
Injury DeSean Jackson out for Week 4     -- Fri Oct 2 7:30 am --

Hamstring injury
Redskins source tells me DeSean Jackson is out Sunday and possibly longer. Said "not even close." (Britt McHenry on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Jackson will miss his grudge game against the Eagles leaving Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to be the top targets in the passing game for Kirk Cousins. Garcon is a WR3 consideration while Reed is a mid-range TE1.
Injury Giants rule DRC and Victor Cruz out     -- Wed Sep 23 4:20 pm --

New York thin in the secondary
The New York Giants will be without top cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Thursday night's game against Washington, and wide receiver Victor Cruz will have to wait at least one more week for his return to the field. (

FF Today's Take: The injury to Dominick Rodgers-Cromartie leaves a defense that has been shredded the past two weeks with huge holes to fill in the secondary. Look for Kirk Cousins to test the Giants pass defense with Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon and company on Thursday night. Additionally, New York released Preston Parker this week and Victor Cruz remains sidelined leaving the door wide open for Rueben Randle to stake his claim in the passing offense behind Odell Beckham Jr.
Injury DeSean Jackson expected to miss 3-4 weeks     -- Mon Sep 14 12:23 pm --

Hamstring injury
Redskins WR DeSean Jackson expected to miss three to four weeks with strained hamstring, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Jackson posted a goose-egg in Week 1 after leaving early in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. In his absence, expect Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed to be the top targets for Kirk Cousins. Reed posted a 7-63-1 line on 11 targets in Week 1.
