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 leaves practice early     -- Wed Aug 6 2:45 pm --

Could miss preseason opener
RICHMOND — Early in Wednesday morning’s walkthrough, the horde of fans lining the practice field let out a collective groan. Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson swatted down a pass in his direction, hobbling off the field while favoring his left ankle. Jackson later walked off the field with his ankle wrapped in white tape, watched part of practice from the trainers’ table and did not return. (Washington Times)

FF Today's Take: Head Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson's availability for Thursday night will depend on how his treatment goes. By most accounts it doesn't look like this is a major cause for concern to fantasy owners. Nevertheless, Washington may want to play it safe considering fellow wideout Pierre Garcon (hamstring) has already been ruled out.
Jordan Reed impressive in scrimmage vs. Pats     -- Mon Aug 4 4:30 pm --

Pats reporter believes TE is in line for big season
Jordan Reed looks like a star. He was open all practice, and hauled in a really nice catch over the out-stretched arms of Darrelle Revis and Devin McCourty along the sideline. Reed is in line for a big season, especially with the Redskins having so many weapons at receiver (DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts). (Boston Globe)

FF Today's Take: Reed has suffered four concussions dating back to college and it is that injury history that appears to be his biggest obstacle en route to becoming an elite fantasy tight end. While he can't be expected to maintain the 90-catch pace he had in eight games last season with a much less talented receiving corps, he figures to compete with Garcon to be the team's leader in touchdown catches.
D-Jax expected to inherit "Z" receiver role     -- Thu Jul 17 4:35 pm --

A.J. Green played same position for Gruden in Cincinnati
DeSean Jackson could play a role similar to A.J. Green, who played the Z role in Cincinnati under former OC Jay Gruden, allowing him to line up a yard off the line of scrimmage. Both Green and Jackson are legitimate deep threats that defenses have to account for on every play. Pierre Garcon will likely continue under Gruden. The X receiver lines up on the line of scrimmage and as a result faces more press-man coverage. Marvin Jones worked his way into the X receiver role in Cincinnati, running similar routes to the ones we’ve become accustomed to Garcon running in Washington. (Washington Post)

FF Today's Take: Garcon at "X" and Jackson at "Z" was the assumption all along since Garcon is bigger and already accustomed to the role while the smaller Jackson will be afforded space to begin his route. Garcon is the odds-on favorite to lead the team in all receiving categories since he is Robert Griffin III's go-to guy, but perhaps Jackson will be more than just a deep threat in what should be a highly-explosive offense.
