Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Pierre Garcon

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Pierre Garcon had a career-best game in Week 9 and will face a struggling Minnesota Vikings secondary in Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

After a poor Week 8 performance against the Denver Broncos and one of the league's worst passing defenses, Pierre Garcon has a huge day in Week 9 and is back on track as the top receiving threat on the Washington Redskins. Garcon managed seven receptions for 46 yards against the Broncos, and the team totaled fewer than 200 passing yards altogether.

But on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, Garcon managed another seven receptions and 11 targets, but this time put up a whopping 172 yards, which was a career best. The Redskins won that game, 30-24, in overtime -- their third win of the season.

Garcon has had a productive season altogether, with 54 receptions for 684 yards and two touchdowns. He complained about the passing game struggles following the loss to Denver, but backed up his talk with that performance against San Diego.

Fantasy Impact: Since Garcon performed so well against San Diego, he has to be excited about the team's Week 10 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. They have the No. 29 pass defense in the league, and the team is 1-7, their lone win being against the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers. Garcon is a must-start WR2 for fantasy owners this week, no question.
