Redskins WR Pierre Garcon doubtful to play vs. Bengals

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan didn't sound confident yesterday when talking about the possibility of Pierre Garcon @PierreGarcon playing this weekend versus the Bengals, and now the team's injury report matches that skepticism. Garcon is officially listed as doubtful to play due to the foot injury he suffered back in Week 1.

Fantasy Analysis:

Garcon was listed as questionable heading into last week's game in St. Louis, so he may have suffered a setback, but that hasn't been confirmed. In any case, we'll have to wait a little longer on Garcon. Leonard Hankerson @HankTime85, who caught -- barely -- a long touchdown in Week 2, gets a bump up in fantasy value, but I'm not thrilled about starting any Redskins wide receiver this weekend. The matchup is fine; I just have no idea which of these wideouts will get the most targets. Robert Griffin III remains a must-start despite the average talent around him.
