From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Oct 28): Like Keenan Allen in San Diego, Garcon seems relegated to short and intermediate routes, and a share of targets that reflects being one of four or five viable targets instead of THE target like he was last year. Garcon is going to hover in WR3/Flex range unless the return of Robert Griffin III miraculously gets him close to where he was last year.

Week 9: at Minnesota Vikings

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The big question this week is whether Robert Griffin III will get back in the saddle prior to Washington's Week 10 bye, or if the coaching staff lets Colt McCoy lead the charge at Minnesota this week. With a big 'W' under McCoy's belt on Monday Night Football (and a lost season for Washington at 3-5 in the NFC East at the half-way point), we expect to see McCoy appear again in Minnesota this weekend. He played a solid game in Dallas, posting 25/30 for 299 yards, zero TDs and one interception, with three sacks taken for -13 yards, and 7/16/1 rushing. The top Washington receivers were McCoy's main targets, with seven targets for 6/136/0 receiving for DeSean Jackson, four for 4/47/0 flowing to Pierre Garcon, and seven for 7/40/0 going to Jordan Reed. McCoy got the ball to the Washington playmakers. The Minnesota pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 212.1 net passing yards allowed per game, with 13 passing TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 25 sacks generated (13th-ranked (tie) and tied for second in the NFL, respectively). Mike Glennon was sacked five times for -12 yards with one passing TD, one interception thrown. The Bills gave up six sacks of Kyle Orton for -28 yards, but he still posted 31/43 for 255 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown vs. the Vikings two games ago. This looks like a tough matchup for McCoy and company, on the road at Minnesota.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 31 / 1 rec)

Pierre Garcon had another quiet week after catching only two passes in his last game. Garcon was targeted six times in the game, catching four of them for only 31 yards. The strong receiver looked good running with ball, converting a short pass for a first down late in the second quarter by outracing a corner to the edge. Garcon's routes seldom saw him run further than 10 yards down the field, and he failed to haul in his lone deep target in the game, a lob up the right sideline that was well-covered. Garcon's day was salvaged by a five yard TD late in the fourth quarter to help pull Washington to within a FG. Garcon turned a quick slant from the right side behind the slot receivers who ran clear outs for him and galloped into the endzone untouched.

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (6 / 5 / 87 / 1 rec)

Pierre Garcon reminded everyone that he is still a dangerous threat to run with the ball after the catch, taking newly inserted Colt McCoy's first pass of the game 70 yards to the house. The defender took a bad angle attempted to push Garcon out of bounds up the left sideline, but he showed that he still has the speed to outrun a poor secondary. Garcon was targeted close to the LOS on his other targets, gaining only 17 yards on four other receptions.

2014 Week 8 vs DAL (4 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)

Pierre Garcon was barely a rumor in the first half, catching one pass for -2 yards. He made his first impact in the game catching a weak-armed pass from McCoy on a short out to the right sideline and taking the ball inside the five yard line, setting up Washington's first TD. Garcon took a backseat to Jordan Reed and Desean Jackson in the target pecking order, but came up big late, catching a 23 yard pass from McCoy on Washington's first play of OT.
