Pierre Garçon gives fantasy owners 143 yards in Redskins loss

Patrick McDermott

The Redskins fell behind early, but the wide receiver managed a score in the game. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon had a big game Sunday, with 143 receiving yards on eight catches. His team lost to the Green Bay Packers, 38-20, but Garçon had one of the team's three touchdowns in the process.

The 143-yard game comes on the heels of a 64-yard outing in Week 1 against Philadelphia.

Fantasy impact:

Garçon is pretty clearly the Redskins' top receiver, with the other members of the corps over the hill (Santana Moss) or unproven (everyone else). He was quarterback Robert Griffin III's favorite target a year ago when healthy and, with 24 targets through two games, appears to be keeping that role this season.

Garçon has had trouble staying healthy through his career, but has avoided injury concerns so far in 2013. As long as he is healthy and on the field, look for he and RG3 to keep up their connection.
