Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon left the team's game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints with a foot injury and is questionable to return. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon left the team's game on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints with a foot injury and is questionable to return. Before the injury, Garcon racked up 109 yards and a touchdown on four catches. His touchdown was an 88-yard gem from Robert Griffin III, who has been outstanding to start the game. The deep speed of Garcon was looking dangerous with Griffin's arm strength.

Fantasy Impact: The Washington Redskins passing offense looks lethal early on. Garcon was a big part of that, so his injury will obviously be worth monitoring. He has developed into one of Griffin's favorite targets already. Still, Griffin is still looking like an excellent fantasy quarterback.
