Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will reportedly not play on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. We break down the fantasy implications.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted out that Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon will not play in the team's Week 3 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals. Garcon entered the day with a doubtful injury status.

Fantasy Impact: This is not surprising news as Garcon was limited all week in practice. A doubtful tag means a player has approximately a 25% chance of playing, and doubtful players rarely play. With Garcon expected to be sidelined, Aldrick Robinson and Leonard Hankerson gain some value. The Bengals secondary has been up and down thus far, Robinson is the better play of the two. Hankerson is more of a home run threat that is fest or famine, while Robinson is likely to be targeted fairly frequently by Robert Griffin III.
