Redskins WR Pierre Garcon listed as probable

Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon @PierreGarcon finished off a week of full practice with another one Friday. Although he has said that he doesn't feel 100 percent recovered from his Week 1 foot injury, Garcon is expected to play and play often Sunday against the Falcons. He is listed as probable on the injury report.

Fantasy Analysis:

Garcon was on the field for 80 percent of the snaps last week against the Buccaneers. You have to think he'll play even more this week. However, the matchup is not easy. The Falcons have a top-10 pass defense and have allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wideouts. Garcon is Robert Griffin's best target, but I would feel a little queasy about putting him in my lineup this week. FFToolbox has ranked Garcon as the No. 30 WR, which is appropriate. I think Garcon is a risky WR3 in Week 5.
