Summary

Garcon could hardly have landed in a better situation after free agency. He goes back quite far with new coach Kyle Shanahan; the two were paired in Washington over 2012-13, and Garcon managed 157 receptions on a staggering 248 targets across 26 games. (That extrapolates to a 16-game total of 96.6 catches.) Shanahan has always favored his X receiver noticeably, force-feeding the likes of Garcon, Andre Johnson, Julio Jones, Josh Gordon (briefly), and even Jabar Gaffney en route to hefty target totals. And in San Francisco, Garcon will be virtually the only game in town; no other NFL team can claim such middling receiver talent. Only ho-hum slotman Jeremy Kerley can project realistically beyond 80-90 targets, and even that's a semi-shaky proposition. All told, the pieces seem to be in place for another Garcon run at 90 receptions. One could argue that his quarterbacking will be suboptimal, but I'm optimistic that his volume will overwhelm any efficiency concerns en route to a PPR WR2 season. Brian Hoyer fits Shanahan's expectations well enough, and the West Coast QB can certainly deliver high-percentage short- and mid-range throws to the nine-year veteran Garcon. The best part is that, while his ADP has crept up a bit, he's still likely to be roundly drafted as a WR3. There's concern, of course, in such a (likely) putrid offense, but few leaguewide will dominate targets like Garcon projects to. (May 21)
