Pierre Garcon (toe) still considering surgery

The Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon hasn’t yet decided whether or not to have surgery on the injured toe that hobbled him for much of the year.

Garcon tore ligaments in the second toe of his right foot and missed a total of six games, but played the final seven games of the regular season despite not being fully healed, and finished the year with 44 catches for 633 yards and four touchdowns. Garcon’s agent said this week that the receiver is still weighing his options.

Garcon said at the conclusion of the season that he still hoped to avoid surgery, but would seek multiple opinions from doctors before making a decision.

Fantasy Impact: 

Garcon was WR27 on a PPG basis, and that included a total of seven catches for 49 yards and zero touchdowns in Weeks 4, 5 and 11 as he was initially trying to play through the injury. In the other seven games, he averaged 5.4 catches for 85 yards and 0.57 TDs, which projects to 87-1360-9 over the course of a full season. Those are WR6-type numbers, so if Garcon can get and stay healthy, there is a ton of upside here.
