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)

Giants | Victor Cruz continues to make progress (Fri Jun 26, 08:49 PM) - New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will have to participate in a mandatory conditioning drill at the start of training camp and believes he could pass it now. Cruz still has not worked with QB Eli Manning on route running or timing drills.

Our View: We've heard nothing but great things about Cruz this offseason. His recovery seems to be on track, and the team is hopeful he can be ready for the start of the regular season. Expect Cruz to be limited in training camp as they ease him back into action.
