Pierre Garcon was limited in Redskins practice on Wednesday with his ongoing foot injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was limited in Wednesday's practice, still recovering from a foot injury suffered early in their week 1 win over the Saints. Garcon missed last week's loss to the Rams because of the injury and his status for week 3 against the Bengals is still questionable. Garcon had 4 catches for 109 yards in only a handful of week 1 plays.

Fantasy Analysis: If small sample sizes are to be trusted, Garcon is the clear number one target for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and even after missing most of the season so far, he still leads the team in receiving yards. In fact, Garcon has almost more yards on one catch (long of 88) than second-in-yards Aldrick Robinson has in two games (92 yards on six catches.) Fantasy owners and Griffin are hopeful that Garcon will be able to return soon and play up to his abilities.
