Summary

Victor Cruz' career is going in the wrong direction. After bursting onto the scene in his second year with a 1,536-yard performance, Cruz overtook Hakeem Nicks as the Giants most valuable receiver. In his third season Cruz caught 86 passes for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns. Last year, armed with a new contract, Cruz failed to break 1,000 yards and missed the final two games after a knee scope. Fortunately, things are looking up. Ben McAdoo is bringing his up tempo version of the West Coast offense from Green Bay, and Cruz is slated to play the same role that Randall Cobb held with the Packers. Cruz is one of the league's most dangerous inside (slot) receivers and his precise route-running and reliable hands argue for continued success as long as Eli Manning can recapture his accuracy.

Latest News

Giants | Four returning punts in practice (Tue Jul 22, 01:29 PM) - New York Giants WR Trindon Holliday, WR Odell Beckham Jr., WR Victor Cruz and WR Rueben Randle all are returning punts in practice Tuesday, July 22.

Our View: Holliday should be the primary return man for the Giants this year. He's dangerous with the ball in his hands--for both teams. Holliday fell out of favor with the Broncos because of fumbling problems. If he can hang onto the rock, he's the best option for the Giants. Beckham, Cruz and Randle are going to be heavily involved in the passing game. They don't need to risk injury to any of these guys with playing time on special teams.

Giants | Victor Cruz getting comfortable with new offense (Tue Jul 22, 12:23 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he is at an eight out of 10 in comfort with the new offense.

Our View: Cruz is a WR1 for fantasy purposes. He failed to produce big numbers in the Kevin Gilbride system last year, and Cruz finished the season as the 28th-best fantasy WR in 2013. Cruz should be re-energized under new OC Ben McAdoo. The potential to be a top-10 receiver is there, making Cruz a value play at his current ADP of WR14 (4.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.
