Niners passing on Garcon's option | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The 49ers have elected not to pick up the 2019 option on WR Pierre Garcon's contract. That's not a surprising move given Garcon's tumble over the past 2 seasons. He missed 8 games apiece in 2017 and 2018 and posted his 2 smallest catch totals (40 and 24) since his 2008 rookie campaign. The 32-year-old looks done as a fantasy factor -- and perhaps as an NFL player. His departure leaves opportunity for younger members of the Niners' WR corps: Dante Pettis, Richie James and Trent Taylor.

The 49ers have placed WR Pierre Garcon (knee) on IR. He's been sidelined since Week 9 and finishes with just 24 catches for 286 yards and 1 TD in 8 games. The 32-year-old's time as a fantasy asset is just about over.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) is out for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Marquise Goodwin is set to return from his 2-game absence and will join Dante Pettis as a top-2 WR for the ‘Niners.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (knee) will miss Monday's contest against the Giants. He missed each practice during the week. With Garcon sidelined, San Francisco will primarily utilize Marquise Goodwin, Richie James, Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne at WR.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. That leaves Dante Pettis, Trent Taylor and Kendrick Bourne behind Marquise Goodwin on the WR depth chart. Pettis is the best fantasy bet but would be a flier in Week 8 lineups.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. WR Dante Pettis, meanwhile, isn’t on the final injury report after missing the past 3 games with a knee injury. The rookie is worth monitoring but can’t be trusted in Week 8 fantasy lineups.
