Pierre Garcon is getting old, that’s a fact, but he’s still a relevant wide receiver. Garcon is coming into his 10th year in the league, and his 2nd on the Niners, at the ripe age of 31 years old. Last year broke Garcon’s 4 season streak of playing in every single regular season game, after he was placed on IR with a neck injury. Kyle Shanahan expects Garcon to come back as strong as ever, and as we all know things are looking up in San Francisco with Jimmy G, and with that will come a significant increase in targets and catches for Garcon. Currently Garcon is ahead of Marquise Goodwin as the number one receiver on the depth chart.
Garcon was only able to play 8 games last year and recorded exactly 500 yards and 0 touchdowns on 40 receptions. That means he was on pace for exactly 1000 yards, and that was just with quarterbacks like Brian Hoyer and C.J. Beathard. That means with a quarterback that isn’t garbage, he’s going to have more significant yardage, and Garoppolo is definitely more than garbage. Every season that Garcon has had more than 100 targets he has finished at least as the 39th wide receiver, and that’s not why he’s 39 on my list, that’s just a coincidence, but he is going to get around 100 targets and get at least 39th in my projection.
The part that holds me back despite the promise the 49ers bring are his injury, and rookie receiver out of Washington Dante Pettis. Garcon’s injury was a neck injury, and not only did it land him on IR till the end of the year but if its it's still an issue coming into OTAs then its it's something to factor in. Secondly, Dante Pettis was a 2nd round pick that was built to be a big part of the new 49ers. Whether that's as a return man or as a high flying wide receiver, he's very talented, and I'm sure that Shanahan is excited for the explosiveness he brings to the table.
