Pierre Garcon expected to sign with 49ers

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is expected to sign with the San Francisco 49ers. "When Pierre Garcon finalizes deal with 49ers, as expected, league sources believe he will make $16 million in first year," Mortensen said via Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

It appears Garcon will reunite with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. He's expected to sign a deal with the team when the free agent market opens Thursday. Garcon will likely be the lead receiver on a depleted 49ers offense unless they bring in another notable name at the position. Expect San Franciso to be aggressive in free agency.

Pierre Garcon posts cryptic social media message

Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon posted a cryptic social media message which suggests his tenure with the Redskins could be coming to an end. "Y'all hiring?" Garcon said via Instagram.

Fantasy Impact

Garcon, who is an impending free agent, could be on his way out of Washington. He posted a photo of himself on Instagram donning his Redskins uniform with the hashtag, "y'all hiring," beside it. Perhaps Garcon was informed by the team that they will be moving on from him this offseason. His social media message could also be an attempt to drive up his value for his coming contract with whichever team decides to sign him. Garcon is expected to receive at least a $9 million per year salary with his next deal, per ESPN.

Pierre Garcon, Redskins still not talking

According to beat reporter Brian McNally, the Washington Redskins have yet to reach out and talk to soon-to-be free agent wide receiver Pierre Garcon.

Fantasy Impact

The writing has been on the wall for quite some time that the Redskins would move on from both Garcon and fellow free agent wide receiver DeSean Jackson this offseason. Should both leave via free agency, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson would both see a nice bump in value. Garcon's best days are behind him, but he can still be a reliable possession receiver for a team.

Pierre Garcon leads Redskins in receiving against Giants

Pierre Garcon caught four of seven targets for 96 yards on Sunday against the Giants. Garcon led the Redskins in receiving.

Fantasy Impact

Garcon topped 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2013, as he became an integral part of the offense as the season went on. An unrestricted free agent like his counterpart DeSean Jackson, it's unclear where Garcon will end up next year. If he stays with the Redskins, however, expect Garcon to be drafted as a low-end WR3.

Pierre Garcon totals 94 yards receiving in win over Bears

Pierre Garcon hauled in four of five targets for 94 yards on Saturday against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Garcon posted his second-highest yardage total of the season, and has surpassed Jamison Crowder as the number-two receiving option for the Redskins. Garcon is a WR3 option at this point, and could be a WR2 option if DeSean Jackson (jaw) is forced to miss next week's game against the Giants.
