2015 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Garcon hasn't scored a TD in his last six games and his last impact game came in Week 3 in 2014. He has five catches or less in his last eight games. On the year, he has three TDs with no games with more than 75 yards receiving. Garcon averages seven targets per game. CB Kyle Fuller has made a nice step forward in 2015 so I would avoid this matchup.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Garcon has four catches or less in each of his last four games (12 catches for 158 yards on 20 targets). His last TD came in Week 6. He still doesn't have a game with more than 75 yards receiving, while averaging only seven targets per game. On the year he has three TDs. In 2014 Garcon had six catches for 100 yards on nine targets vs. the Cowboys in two games. His price point is fading as well as his opportunity.

It was just crazy to see how the Redskins used Garcon in 2014. His value looked in check in Week 1 when he caught 10 of his 12 targets for 77 yards, but Washington left him out of the game plan in Week 2 (one catch on four targets for 12 yards). He responded with his best game in Week 3 (11 catches for 138 yards and one TD on 16 targets). Over his next 10 games, Garcon caught 27 balls for 280 yards with two TDs on 45 targets. He only had one game of value (9/95 on 11 targets) in his last four starts. Pierre didn't score a TD in his last nine games. For the year, he had three games with double digit targets compared to 14 in 2013. Garcon is a very talented player that was misused last year. This year Washington plans to play him split wide on the right side as they intend on getting more him involved this year. Pierre should be a rock solid pass catching machine with 80-plus catches well within reach. I expect 1,000-plus yards with a handful of TDs. He is a complete gift in the early draft season with an ADP of 111 as the 47th WR off the board. Garcon has WR2 upside.

9.09 The Fantasy Executive - Garcon maybe the only Washington player on offense who can still thrive while RG3 struggles. Garcon is a nice value this late in the draft. Look for a 75-80 catch campaign. (Comments Added Sat Aug 8 3:29:39 p.m. ET 2015)
