Pierre Garcon is looking unlikely. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pierre Garcon is unlikely to suit up for his late-afternoon game against the Rams.

Analysis: Garcon owners absolutely have to bench Garcon even though he has a beautiful matchup. The news is coming from ESPN and CBS, so the credibility is certainly there. If you're feeling saucy, it looks like Aldrick Robinson will be the sleeper of the day for deep leagues since he should get plenty of snaps in the slot. As maligned as the Rams D has been, they have a good pass rush and RG3 might be under pressure. Santana Moss is also a fantastic start that should be started in almost all 12-team leagues as a flex.
