Giants | Victor Cruz having drops issue

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:39:28 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had three drops in Week 2 after demanding to see the ball more before the game. He vowed to get better moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is still a decent WR2 in Week 3 against the Houston Texans. He is priced at $6,400 (12.8% of your cap) on FantasyScore this week.

Giants | Victor Cruz wants more targets

Tue, 09 Sep 2014 15:11:59 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz thinks the offense will improve if more targets are directed his way. "In order for us to be successful I think there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction," Cruz said, on a conference call with reporters. "And other playmakers' directions, just like Rueben Randle as well, in my opinion." Cruz had only six targets and finished with two grabs and 24 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. Randle was targeted only three times for two catches and one yard. The Giants offense as a whole was unproductive against the Lions after looking poor in the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: Eli Manning has struggled to pick up the new terminology of the offense, and that's something that could continue to hurt Cruz and the other playmakers early in the season. The Green Bay Packers should present a chance to get going, but you may want to avoid Cruz ($5,600; 11.2% of cap) in FantasyScore for at least another week.

Giants | Receivers inconsistent

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:19:25 -0700

New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and Mario Manningham have not made many big plays this preseason. Cruz initially caught a long play-action pass Saturday, Aug. 16, but dropped it. Randle has one catch for 12 yards in three games. Jernigan has not carried over his momentum from late last season, per head coach Tom Coughlin, and also dropped a throw from Eli Manning Saturday. Corey Washington has three touchdowns but received fewer first-string practice reps than Manningham in first-string practice reps Monday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Add in Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury, and there's little reason to believe in this offense right now. At least this may make them cheaper fantasy options.

Giants | Victor Cruz not concerned about offense

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:16:40 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he's not concerned about the offense's struggles "mainly because we have not shown a lot. We haven't given a lot of plays or tipped out hand on a lot of things that we have shown yet. It is still pretty base stuff, but we just have to do a better job of executing."

Fantasy Tip: Anybody could say this is the case in preseason play. Eli Manning directing a timing-based, West Coast offense is an interesting but risky proposition. Fantasy players could do worse for a QB2. As for Cruz, he's still a fine WR2 in all formats who'll get his thanks to his big-play ability.

Giants | Victor Cruz patient during preseason

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 14:20:33 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz is using the preseason to work on his technique and to make sure his routes are crisp, instead of focusing on the statistical side of the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz heads into the regular season as a solid WR2 option. Hakeem Nicks is gone and Cruz figures to play mostly in the slot. If he can stay healthy, he should return to WR1 status.

Giants | Victor Cruz banged up

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 18:02:23 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) was seen limping following a collision in one-on-one drills at practice Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on his status in the coming days to make sure Cruz is just dealing with a bruise and not something that will linger into the season.

Giants | Victor Cruz getting comfortable with new offense

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:23:13 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he is at an eight out of 10 in comfort with the new offense.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz still has plenty of time to get completely up to speed with the team's new offense. Regular practice time and preseason games should help everyone on the offensive side of the ball feel more comfortable with the new offense.
