Redskins WR Pierre Garcon out for Week 9, WR Aldrick Robinson cleared

The Washington Redskins will play yet another week without WR Pierre Garcon @PierreGarcon. The former Indianapolis Colt hasn't played since Oct. 7 and has only played in three games all season. Garcon and the Redskins have a bye in Week 10 and the early presumption is that he will return in Week 11. WR Aldrick Robinson @AldrickRobinson is expected to see an increase in playing time according to Grant Paulsen, a local beat reporter in Washington. Robinson had been held out because of a concussion incurred in a freak accident collision during pre-game warmups nearly a month ago.

Fantasy Analysis:

Realistically, Washington's only viable fantasy receiver is the ageless Santana Moss @EIGHTTODANINE. He is the only Redskins pass-catcher with more than one TD reception (he has five) and is tied for the team-lead with 23 receptions. Unfortunately for the entire receiving corps, Robert Griffin III @RGIII does a great job spreading the ball around. Three receivers (Moss, Leonard Hankerson @HankTime85, and Josh Morgan) have 23 receptions and each has at least 30 targets and no more than 37. When healthy, Garcon is certainly worth a roster spot on your fantasy team but he shouldn't immediately return to a starting lineup until he proves that he's back at 100-percent.
