Garcon’s value remains viable in Washington

The Washington Redskins sure have been busy over the last few days.

First, the team pulled off a blockbuster trade with the St. Louis Rams to land the No. 2 overall selection in April’s draft (in an effort to land Baylor’s Robert Griffin III). Now they’ve agreed to terms with Pierre Garcon – a piece of news that was posted on Garcon’s Facebook page. While it’s a nice fit for Garcon, it’s not going to make him more valuable in fantasy land.

The veteran finished a respectable 23rd in fantasy points at his position in 2011, but Garcon was horribly inconsistent overall. And while he will be a nice option in the vertical pass attack for Griffin and coach Mike Shanahan, he isn’t going to become the next Art Monk. In fact, I still see him as more of a No. 3 fantasy wideout and worth a middle rounder in most formats.

Garcon’s presence in the offense will have a slightly negative effect on Santana Moss, but he’s on the downside of his career and isn’t likely to re-emerge into a top-20 fantasy receiver. In fact, Garcon will be selected ahead of Moss in most fantasy drafts. With the addition of Josh Morgan, however, Moss isn’t even a lock to remain in D.C.
