Pierre Garcon questionable for Thursday, fantasy owners should plan to look elsewhere

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Whether he plays or not, Garcon isn't likely to have a big game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pierre Garcon's career in Washington started out so wonderfully, but in the same fleeting moment that he jumped off of the page as a potential number one wide receiver for the Redskins, he also injured his foot in such a way that it could ruin his entire season.

Garcon is officially listed as questionable to play for Washington in their Thanksgiving day matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, now 11 weeks removed from the injury he suffered on an 88-yard touchdown in Week 1. The 2012 free agent acquisition has gained just 49 yards on seven catches in three games since. Garcon returned to the field last week against the Eagles and caught three passes for five yards.

Fantasy Take: You simply can't play Pierre Garcon anymore. There could come a time when he's fully healthy and ready to go but it might not be until next season. Just avoid him for now.
