Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon said he suffered no setbacks after playing for the first time since injuring his foot in Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon said he suffered no setbacks on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after playing for the first time since hurting his foot in the first quarter of the opening game of the season. Garcon had just one catch for 20 yards against Tampa Bay but did recover a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown. Garcon was not on the field for Washington's game-winning drive because the Redskins were in their hurry-up offense.

Fantasy Impact: It doesn't sound like Garcon is 100 percent but fantasy owners should be encouraged that he's back on the field. The Redskins signed Garcon to help upgrade the passing game but haven't gotten much from him. His fantasy value should rise as the season goes along.
