Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins WR Pierre Garcon appears to have switched wide receiver positions and spent the bulk of the day playing the ‘Z’ rather than the ‘X.’ He used to line up on the left, and now is split out to the right. Coaches plan to make a greater point of getting Garcon the ball, and this is part of the plan. DeSean Jackson lined up at the ‘X’ today.

Fantasy Impact: 

After a #11 finish in PPR formats in 2013, Garcon was the #47 receiver last season. His targets dropped from 182 to 105, thanks to the addition of DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts in free agency. The team is expected to run the ball a bit more this season, so we're not expecting a big bounce-back season for Garcon. If the team follows through with its plan to get him the ball more often, he could post WR3 numbers in PPR formats.
