Summary

Victor Cruz is recovering from a torn patellar tendon, and both he and the Giants have expressed confidence in his availability for Week One. Fantasy owners will have to take some of that on faith because it's unlikely Cruz will see the practice field much, if at all, during the preseason. Assuming for a moment he makes a full recovery, Cruz enters the 2015 with a different role than the past two seasons. Cruz is no longer the Giants' top pass-catcher; that role belongs to Odell Beckham for the foreseeable future. Cruz will now be able to test his mettle against team's secondary cornerbacks. He'll also face single coverage in most situations. At his best, Cruz is a smart route runner with vacuum hands. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in his ability to gain separation, particularly on crossing routes. His days as a fantasy WR1 are probably over, but Cruz can re-emerge as a viable WR2 if his recovery progresses unabated. (May 16)
