Pierre Garcon Injury Update: Foot Injury Shouldn't Limit Fantasy Allure

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Pierre Garcon is questionable against Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pierre Garcon (foot) participated in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but then was just limited on Friday. He is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Vikings.

Garcon has been quiet since the injury and only has eight catches for 153 yards and a TD. He caught an 88-yard TD Week 1, so those numbers are pretty ugly with that out of the cumulative total.

Fantasy Impact: Garcon missed Week 3 and has been extremely quiet in his two games following. In Week 4 and 5 he combined for just 4 catches and 44 yards. The Skins short passing game has cost Garcon a little of his luster.

The Vikings were a fantastic matchup last year, but they've turned things around this year. Minnesota is ranked 15th against the pass, so Garcon is a risky play. Plus, the Redskins play in a late-afternoon game, so there's a little more risk should he have a setback in warmups. He's just a WR3 this week , but should remain owned in all leagues.
