Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garçon had a big game Sunday, with 143 receiving yards on eight catches. His team lost to the Green Bay Packers, 38-20, but Garçon had one of the team's three touchdowns in the process.
The 143-yard game comes on the heels of a 64-yard outing in Week 1 against Philadelphia.
Fantasy impact: Garçon is pretty handily the Redskins' top receiver, with the other members of the corps over the hill (Santana Moss) or unproven (everyone else). He was quarterback Robert Griffin III's favorite target a year ago as long as Garçon was healthy and, with 24 targets through two games, that appears to be holding true this season as well.
Garçon has had trouble staying healthy through his career, but hasn't had many injury concerns so far in 2013. As long as he is healthy and on the field, look for he and RG3 to keep up their connection.
