Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE
Pierre Garcon is inactive for Sunday's game between the Redskins and the Panthers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Pierre Garcon has been ruled inactive for Sunday's game between the Washington Redskins and the Carolina Panthers due to a foot injury, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Garcon had been ruled out earlier in the week, and is expected to be reevaluated after the team's Week 10 bye.
With Garcon out, Aldrick Robinson will start over Leonard Hankerson to complement Santana Moss out of the slot, according to reports. Josh Morgan could also see extra targets from quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Fantasy Impact: Robinson's speed gives him significantly more upside than Hankerson. He could be an intriguing option this week, despite the fact that he has just eight receptions on the season. If you are absolutely desperate, Robinson could be worth a flyer.
As for Garcon, check back after Week 10. His injury struggles may have already caused several owners to drop him in their leagues, however.
