Week 16: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Kirk Cousins started for Washington back in Week Three - this week it looks like Robert Griffin III is going to go, so looking back in time won't inform us much regarding Griffin's prospects in this game. Griffin has been in and out of the lineup this year - when in, he's posted 104/150 for 1,138 yards, three TDs and three interceptions thrown, with 27/146/0 rushing to his credit over seven appearances. Last week in New York Andre Roberts (four targets for 2/81/0 receiving), Silas Redd (three for 3/62/0) and Pierre Garcon (seven for 4/36/0) led the team in receiving - running back Chris Thompson (four for 3/22/1) handled the lone TD of the day from Griffin. Not exactly a set of household words in fantasy circles, are they? We'll see who Griffin relies on here in Week 16 with a week of preparation with the first team. The Eagles' pass D is awfully putrid, ranking 28th in the NFL averaging 257.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 passing scores given out vs. 10 interceptions (23rd in the NFL) and despite an impressive 47 sacks recorded (second in the NFL). The secondary simply doesn't play well for the Eagles, and that's that. Dez Bryant deconstructed them with eight targets for 6/114/3 receiving last week, as Tony Romo threw 22/31 for 249 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown while taking three sacks for -16 yards. Advantage, Washington.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs IND (9 / 3 / 9 / 0 rec)

Pierre Garcon was unable to exact "revenge" against his old team, finishing with a paltry nine yards for the day. He was targeted in the end zone late in the second quarter but was blanketed by Vontae Davis and couldn't come up with the ball. Garcon was never able to shake the Colts coverage and looked disinterested as his teammates garnered much more attention from Colt McCoy.

2014 Week 14 vs STL (11 / 9 / 95 / 0 rec)

Pierre Garcon had a game reminiscent of last season when he led the league in receptions. His nine receptions and 95 yards were his most since week three against the Eagles. Garcon clearly benefited from the absence of DeSean Jackson, but he still ran mostly short, high-percentage routes and didn't find much room to run after the catch. Garcon never came close to getting a red zone look and is merely a high-volume, low floor receiver at this stage.

2014 Week 15 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)

Pierre Garcon was second on the team with seven targets, but had to settle for mostly short underneath routes in a neutered RG3 passing offense. Garcon had a nice chain-moving catch in tight traffic early in the game that fired him and the Washington offense up, but Garcon disappeared in the second half as the Giants pass rush stiffened and kept Griffin running for his life.
