Pierre Garcon injury update: Fantasy value remains on hold even after limited practice

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Will the Redskins top receiver finally return? We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon 'could play Sunday' according to Mike Shanahan, after already having missed most of the season with a foot injury. Garcon originally injured his foot on an 88-yard touchdown reception against the Saints in Week 1 and then tried to return a few weeks later, but found that it was too soon.

Shanahan now says that he's making better cuts in practice and it seems as though there is a possibility that Garcon finally returns for good. The Redskins take on the Eagles in Week 11.

Fantasy Take: If he is active, it would still be a risky move to start Garcon after the last time he returned from the foot injury and was ineffective. If and when he does return to full health, it will be a major addition for the offense and Robert Griffin III as they have been unable to identify a number one receiver in Garcon's absence.
