Quick fantasy outlook: Apparently 2011 was not a fluke, after all. After bursting onto the scene in 2011 with a monstrous season (82 receptions for 1,536 yards and 9 touchdowns), many wondered if Cruz had somehow been the beneficiary of some fluke plays and single coverage as opposing teams were more worried about Hakeem Nicks on the other side. 2012 painted a much different story though. In spite of Hicks being injured and ineffective for large stretches, Victor Cruz flourished. In spite of increased double teams, Cruz caught another 86 receptions for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns. While it's true that Cruz' yards per reception fell precipitously (from 18.7 to 12.7), that was more a byproduct of the Giants offensive play-calling than any deficiency in Cruz' game. Cruz' game isn't perfect, he drops too many passes (12 last year), but he's earned Eli Manning's trust and was rewarded with a 6-year, $46mm contract extension in recognition of his role as one of the team's offensive cornerstones.
