WSH -56.89% -47.28% Pierre Garcon

The Washington Redskins appear to be a horrific matchup for Pierre Garcon, and that normally would be true thanks to Josh Norman, however Josh is out 2-4 weeks meaning Pierre’s matchup is much better than it looks on paper.  If you’re debating whether or not to start Pierre this week, I’d go with start as San Francisco will find ways to get him the ball.

Sammy Watkins on the other hand.. his matchup is exactly as tough as it appears.  The Jaguars may have the best corners in football, and Sammy was already struggling to see targets.  Expect a lot of Todd Gurley and not much Sammy Watkins this week against the Jaguars.
