Pierre Garcon 'long shot' to play, but fantasy receiver not ruled out

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Mike Shanahan says that his number one receiver is a long shot to play, but could he still get out there? We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan says that wide receiver Pierre Garcon is a 'long shot' to play against the New York Giants on Sunday, but did not go as far as to rule him out. Garcon returned from a Week 1 foot injury recently but then sat out Week 6 after the decision was made that perhaps he came back too soon. The former Colts receiver had a big Week 1 but injured himself on an 88-yard touchdown catch and has either been out or ineffective ever since.

In total, he has 8 catches for 153 yards in three games.

Fantasy Take: Garcon looked iffy already and he'd be a very risky play even if he was active. Find another option.
