Pierre Garcon injury update: Fantasy value still risky despite news Garcon will play

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

The Redskins are hoping this return is better than the last one for Garcon. We break down the fantasy implications.

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon injured his foot in Week 1, returning from that injury in Week 4. After grabbing just four passes for 44 yards in two games after getting back on the field, Garcon was off of it again. Six weeks after his last start, Garcon will be back again in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Garcon has 153 yards in three games this season, and 88 of those came on the Week 1 touchdown pass where he suffered his initial foot injury.

Fantasy Take: He hasn't done anything for fantasy owners since Barack Obama was a one-term president. Unless you're desperate, I don't see it being worth the risk, but it could be a nice boost to the numbers of Robert Griffin III.
