Pierre Garcon expected to return in Week 11: Fantasy implications

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is expected to return in Week 11, according to a report. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is expected to return on Sunday after missing the last four games with a toe injury, a source tells ESPN 980 in Washington, D.C. Garcon has a torn ligament and has not played since Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Garcon has been limited in practice and has been determined to avoid season-ending surgery. Garcon suffered the injury in Week 1 and has only been active for three games this season. The Redskins face the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Garcon is worth having on a fantasy roster but is not expected to be 100 percent on Sunday. Fantasy owners should wait for more information before even considering putting him in a lineup this week.

Garcon is no better than a No. 4 wide receiver or low-end flex play if he's active on Sunday. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere.
