Summary

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different outcome. It's fair to say many fantasy owners are insane when it comes to counting on Victor Cruz. All kidding aside, Cruz is three years removed from his last dominant season, and has missed 26 games in the last two seasons trying to come back from a knee injury and a torn calf. In May Cruz declared himself 100% healthy and vowed to be a full participant in training camp. If he follows through on his promise, Cruz could end up pairing with Beckham to be one of the league's top duos. That said, the Giants added Sterling Shepard in the draft who profiles as a future NFL starter in his own right. If Cruz isn't healthy, he may lose his spot to the rookie and never regain it. The good news is fantasy owners are snake bitten by Cruz after two failed seasons and his ADP represents all upside for the time being. (May 21)

Giants | Victor Cruz expects to be ready for camp (Sat Jul 23, 08:39 AM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) said he will be ready to participate once training camp begins.

Our View: We can't wait to see Cruz salsa-dancing in the end zone again someday. However, coming back from his injuries have proven to be difficult. We're hopeful Cruz can regain his form but want to see him in camp/preseason first.
