Summary

Pierre Garcon did no respond well to Jay Gruden's offense. Garcon led the NFL in 2013 with 113 receptions but caught only 68 last year. His targets were nearly halved (181 to 105), his yardage plummeted (1,346 to 752), and his TD total (3) was his worst since 2008 (his rookie year). It's tempting to project a bounce back season for Garcon, but one could instead conclude that 2013 was actually the outlier, suggesting that 2014's pedestrian totals were more in-line with his stats as an Indianapolis Colt. Garcon has only been a top 20 fantasy WR once in seven seasons. Let someone else draft Garcon as a WR2; he's really a WR4 at this point. (June 8)

Redskins | Pierre Garcon in contract year? (Thu Jul 23, 07:50 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon could be in a contract year in 2015. He will cost $10.25 million against the salary cap next season, according to ESPN.com's John Keim.

Our View: There's only $2.2 million left in dead money on Garcon's contract in 2016. He needs to have a strong season this year to justify that $10.2 million cap hit next year.
