From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): So much for the Garcon bounceback coming out of the bye. He doesn't seem to have lost ability, but in this crumbling Washington offense, he has lost any semblance of fantasy value.

Week 12: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Robert Griffin III's return to action has juiced up Alfred Morris' production in the rushing phase of the game, but the Washington passing attack remains problematic with Griffin in the game. He threw 23/32 for 207 yards, one TD and two interceptions against the Tampa Bay defense last week (ranked 30th in the NFL this year averaging 266.1 net passing yards allowed per game - Washington had 167 net passing yards last week after subtracting six sacks for -40 yards). Running back Roy Helu led the team in receiving with six targets for 6/57/1, and Morris hauled in 2/36/0 to place second on the team last week. That left DeSean Jackson (six targets for 4/35/0 receiving) and Pierre Garcon (two for 1/6/0) with another disappointing week of production against an easy opponent. Jordan Reed had three passes for 2/22/0. Griffin just can't seem to get this system operating smoothly, friends. The 49ers pass D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 220.2 net passing yards generated per game, with 18 passing scores given up vs. 16 interceptions (first in the NFL) and 17 (tied-25th) sacks generated to date. Aldon Smith managed two quarterback hits in his return to NFL action last week, but didn't record a sack at New York. Eli Manning threw five interceptions to the 49ers last week, though, while taking two sacks for -15 yards on they way to 22/45 for 265 net yards passing, and one TD throw. Drew Brees was intercepted twice two games ago, sacked twice for -5 yards, and finished the game with 28/47 for 287 net yards and three TDs thrown. As you can see, the 49ers are giving up more yards than usual of late, but they are also notching a lot of interceptions to balance that out. This looks like a tough matchup for the visiting Griffin and company.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs MIN (5 / 3 / 15 / 0 rec)

RG3's favorite target last year, Pierre Garcon looked as if he might re-establish his place at the top of the WR pecking order in Washington. Garcon was targeted early, but finished the game again taking a backseat to Desean Jackson. His 15 yards receiving was his worst output since Week 2 at Jacksonville. Garcon was targeted deep late in the second quarter, but he was unable to haul in a tough but catchable ball the Griffin rocketed up the left sideline that fell right through his hands. Garcon looked like he may have injured his wrist on the play as well, but he was not taken out of the game.

2014 Week 11 vs TB (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Pierre Garcon was an afterthought in the Washington passing game, catching only one of his two targets for six yards. More than half of RG3's completions were to RBs and TEs, and Desean Jackson seems to have the clear hold on WR targets.
