2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jul-04-2014 by Larry Goldstein

Pierre Garcon shook off an injury-riddled first year with the Redskins to post career-highs in targets, receptions, and yards in 2013. In fact, Garcon led the entire league with a staggering 182 targets; even more impressive, he had ten or more targets in each of the last ten games. While those stats are as much a product of RG3 having no other trustworthy weapons than anything else, it validates Garcon as one of the premier receivers in the league. Griffin is expected to spread the ball around more this year with the additions of DeSean Jackson, Andre Roberts and a healthy Jordan Reed, but Garcon will still be the most heavily targeted receiver in Jay Gruden's pass-happy offense. Garcon is currently the 12th WR being selected (32.60 ADP) and going approximately two rounds ahead of his new teammate Jackson. Expect fewer targets but greater efficiency this year as defenses will not be able to double-team Garcon.

2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
5.08 FFToolbox - Brian Murphy - I was a little bummed that Dwayne Bowe didn't fall one more pick. Garcon's right foot is still a problem for him, and that's more risk than I like to take on this early in a draft. But if he can deal with the pain -- and he has said he will -- I think Garcon will post WR2 numbers this season. Yes, that hinges on the health of Robert Griffin III, but all reports out of that corner sound pretty rosy.

5.12 Bruno Boys - Again the value at the turn was at WR. The problem was that I didn't really like any of the options on the board. I ended up taking an early upside pick. Garcon battled injury literally all of last season and it looks as if he?s unlikely to ever fully heal which makes him a risk. His upside, however, is immense. Garcon managed to put up near WR2 PPG numbers despite playing through injury. His chemistry with Robert Griffin is unparalleled and no other receiver on the team has really stepped up. Garcon will lead the Redskins? receiving corps yet again and 75+ receptions is a very achievable number. Relying on him as a WR2 shouldn't be too much of a stretch.
