Pierre Garcon injury update: Limited practice won't boost fantasy value but gives hope

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Robert Griffin III's favorite target could return, even if he's not 100%. We break down the fantasy implications.

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) got in his second straight day of limited practice on Thursday and the team could lean towards playing against the Eagles on Sunday, even if he is not at full health. Washington has waited patiently for Garcon's return, suffered on an early play in Week 1 and keeping him from being effective or active ever since, and might just be ready to give it another go.

Garcon returned to the field for two games but was not productive and thought he came back too soon. He might come back too soon, again.

Fantasy Take: If he were healthy, Garcon looks like a legitimate threat to be a WR2 in fantasy or even better. He was dynamic in Week 1 and is the perfect receiver for a Robert Griffin III offense, but he just hasn't been the same since and Griffin has suffered for it.

If he returns, it could boost RG3's value before it boosts his own, but he might be a sneaky play for the fantasy playoffs.
