Summary

Garcon returns having missed most of his Kyle Shanahan reunion with a neck injury. And, finally paired with an effective quarterback, he remains a premier PPR target. He famously dominated Shanahan's passing game in Washington. Upon joining Shanahan in San Francisco, Garcon averaged 9.3 targets over 7 full games and looks poised to see similar attention in 2018. There should be plenty of opportunity in play to keep a target hog like Garcon squarely in PPR WR3 territory with modest upside. He's not a particularly dynamic producer, and his career touchdown rates are subpar, but he's a strong volume play when he slips into Rounds 7 and 8. (May 22)

49ers | Pierre Garcon building chemistry with QB (Thu Jun 21, 10:06 PM) - San Francisco 49ers WR Pierre Garcon has been building chemistry with QB Jimmy Garoppolo, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. 'It's been a good process for them to get here, spend some time together,' Shanahan said.

Our View: Garcon was once a prodigious target hog in a Kyle Shanahan offense, and the 49ers promptly signed Garcon to a long-term deal after Shanahan took over last year. He's a prime candidate to provide value at ADP as long as he's healthy.
