Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 5 vs ARI (12 / 5 / 47 / 0 rec)
Garcon led the 49ers in targets by a wide margin despite missing a full quarter of the game due to injury. It was tough to tell because there was no replay, but he appeared to do something to his shoulder while diving to the ground for a low throw from C.J. Beathard. Speaking of which, the stat sheet says he only caught 5 of 12 targets, and some people might say several of those were drops, but this low catch rate was not Garcon's fault. When he wasn't throwing low and inside on slants to Garcon, he was throwing high and inside on slants to Garcon. Indeed, one of Beathard's interceptions might go down as a Garcon drop, but that pass was thrown way too hard, way too high, and way too inside. Garcon did a nice job even getting two hands on the ball. Unfortunately, those two hands acted as a volleyball set to safety Tre Boston.
2018 Week 4 vs LAC (7 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)
Over half of Garcon's yardage came on consecutive plays early in the second quarter. And both came out of an alignment that Garcon has been increasingly used in this season: the slot/flex. On the first play, he ran a quick out route against soft zone coverage, the catch was uncontested and yards after the catch were available. Lined up in the identical spot -- slot right tight -- on the next play, he ran a deep crossing pattern, once again against zone coverage, and was able to easily beat linebacker Jatavis Brown for a 23-yard catch and run.
2018 Week 3 vs KC (4 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Garcon's quiet performance was due to Kansas City's zone coverage having him bracketed across the field on most routes. He did, however, have a golden opportunity for 40-yard gain or more when he was left uncovered on a crossing pattern, but Jimmy Garoppolo overthrew him.
2018 Week 2 vs DET (4 / 4 / 57 / 0 rec)
Garcon's relatively quiet day was due to being shadowed by Darius Slay on the vast majority of routes. Indeed, half of his receptions and two-thirds of his yards came on two targets against the man-to-man coverage of Teez Tabor (1-13) and Nevin Lawson (1-19).
2018 Week 1 vs MIN (6 / 2 / 21 / 0 rec)
As was the case in San Francisco's third preseason game, Garcon was removed for a substitute far more than you would expect for a true No. 1 wide receiver. He caught a ball and fell on the ground hard? Wave on Kendrick Bourne. He caught a pass after playing a number of consecutive snaps? Wave on Kendrick Bourne. This isn't Garcon's fault. He's old. But with a trend so notable, it's worth taking account. Oh by the way, he also dropped a touchdown pass.
