Giants | Victor Cruz doing drills again

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 08:46:18 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) is doing individual drills for the third straight day Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is about 20 months removed from his torn patellar tendon, which is an injury many players never return to form from. He has a few hurdles to clear, but he's a WR5 flyer in fantasy if he's healthy.

Giants | Victor Cruz active in practice

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 12:51:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) ran routes and caught passes during practice Tuesday, June 14. He started small but eventually progressed to full routes. Cruz has already said he plans to participate in the start of training camp in late July.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz isn't totally out of the woods yet, but he is making good progress. Sterling Shepard is probably a less risky draft target from the Giants behind Odell Beckham Jr., but Cruz should not be overlooked. He's still capable of WR4 numbers if he can stay on the field, but that's a big if.

Giants | Victor Cruz vows to be ready

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 10:44:09 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) said he will be ready for the start of training camp. "Come July 28th my plan is to be on the field for the start of training camp," Cruz said.

Fantasy Tip: Knee and calf injuries have really put a damper on what was a bright and promising career for the salsa-dancing wide receiver. He played in only six games in 2014. Even if he participates in all of training camp, fantasy owners should be only cautiously optimistic about him this year. Odell Beckham is the clear No. 1 receiver, and the Giants drafted promising rookie Sterling Shepard, who could also take notable looks away from a healthy Cruz. Cruz should be drafted as a flex receiver, at best, this fall.

Giants | Victor Cruz doing drills

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 08:43:45 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is doing individual drills at camp, running routes and catching passes Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is a WR5 flyer in fantasy if he's healthy. However, that's a big question after he has missed much of the last two years with knee and calf injuries.

Giants | Minicamp unlikely for Victor Cruz

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:26:40 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is not expected to participate in organized team activities or minicamp this week, according to ESPNNewYork.com's Dan Graziano. The Giants are hoping Cruz will be able to participate in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz will continue to have to be patient with his recovery. The Giants don't want to risk aggravation. Drafting Cruz as a WR4 wouldn't quite be lunacy, but it's safer to take him as a WR5 considering his injury history and slow recovery.

Giants | Victor Cruz hopes to practice during minicamp

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 05:38:23 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) has made significant strides over the past three months and is optimistic he could practice in the individual portions of workouts during minicamp this week.

Fantasy Tip: Over the past two seasons, Cruz has played just six games, and rookie Sterlin Shepard will likely make Cruz the third option in the passing game, at best. Cruz is a potential late-round flier in deep leagues, but you should keep your expectations in check.

Giants | Victor Cruz shows burst

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 11:53:40 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) performed full speed acceleration drills with a trainer Monday, June 6, and showed some burst in doing so. The goal is still for him to return by training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Don't let Cruz's progress get you too excited. He missed all of last year due to injury and only played in six games in 2014. For now, it's safer to draft him as a late-round flier.

Giants | Victor Cruz targeting training camp

Tue, 24 May 2016 09:50:07 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) jogged around the practice field Tuesday, May 24, as the team is targeting around training camp for him to return to full participation.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has missed most of the last two years with a torn patellar tendon and a torn calf muscle he injured in his comeback attempt. The Giants aren't counting on him, and it wouldn't be wise to do so in fantasy other than a lottery-ticket WR5.

Giants | Victor Cruz taking it slow

Mon, 23 May 2016 09:56:46 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) and RB Orleans Darkwa (leg) were both working on the side with trainers during practice Monday, May 23. The Giants continue to take it slow with Cruz.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz's major knee injury is concerning. He's played in only six games in the last two years and will probably never be the same receiver he once was. The Giants drafted Sterling Shepard to make an immediate impact in the passing game because of the uncertainty surrounding Cruz. Consider Cruz a very risky fantasy asset moving forward as a late-round flier.
