Quick fantasy outlook: The Redskins lavished Pierre Garcon with a 5-year, $42mm contract including $20.5mm in guaranteed money last offseason, believing Garcon was the perfect WR1 to help Robert Griffin III reach his star potential. Garcon opened the 2012 season against the New Orleans Saints, and torched the beleaguered defense for 109 yards and a touchdown. The Redskins investment in the former Indianapolis Colt seemed well deserved. Sadly, that marked the pinnacle of Garcon's season; he tore ligaments in his foot in Week One and was limited throughout the year. Garcon missed six games and played hurt through the rest, finishing with a disappointing 44 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns. Garcon opted not to have surgery in the offseason, and acknowledged that his foot may not be 100% again in 2013. That's a red flag, and no one should be surprised if Garcon opts for surgery at some point over the next calendar year. However, Garcon has looked great during training camp and shown no signs of last year's impediment. Assuming he can play through the pain, Garcon has the deep speed and ball tracking ability to blow the top off opposing defenses.
