Found October 07, 2012 on Fantasy Football Champs:
Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) is expected to play on Sunday, but he did say "it's going to take some time" until he's back to full capacity.Fantasy Spin:Garcon only caught one pass in Week 4, but he did recover a fumble for a touchdown. When Garcon is healthy his status as Robert Griffin III's favorite target makes him a strong WR2, but it could be awhile before he's 100 percent. Still, the Redskins offense is going to have to produce a lot of points htis week to stay with Atlanta and that means Garcon must be involved.
