Ravens | Baltimore unlikely to look at Victor Cruz

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 11:21:46 -0800

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) probably will not be an option for the Baltimore Ravens this offseason unless he is willing to sign for the veteran minimum, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz's injury history likely will limit his market, but teams looking for a slot receiver could have interest in him. He will be a risky fantasy option because of his injuries but could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver depending on his role.

Panthers | Victor Cruz could fit in Carolina

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 22:03:13 -0800

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) could be pursued by the Carolina Panthers, according to beat writer David Newton. General manager Dave Gettleman has a connection with Cruz from his time with the New York Giants, and Cruz would fill Carolina's need for a slot receiver.

Broncos | Broncos plan to meet with Victor Cruz

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 20:17:44 -0800

The Denver Broncos are "working" to meet with free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants).

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have plenty of salary cap space, which apparently includes enough room for some risks. Cruz would certainly qualify as one, being someone who has looked like a much different player since tearing the patellar tendon in his knee in 2014. While Denver does have a need for a No. 3 receiver, the 30-year-old still has a long road ahead back towards fantasy relevance.

NFL | Victor Cruz probably done, says scout

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 20:50:31 -0800

Free-agent WR Victor Cruz (Giants) is "probably done," according to one NFL scout.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz tore a patellar tendon in 2014, and since then, he hasn't nearly been the same, which was very evident this past season as he registered a career-low 39.1 receiving yards per game over 15 contests. He'll likely get another shot with some receiver-needy club in training camp, but it would take a long road back for him to suddenly be fantasy relevant again.

Giants | Victor Cruz released

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 11:19:00 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz was officially released Monday, Feb. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz didn't do a whole lot for the Giants last season. Lack of production, injuries and age make this a logical move for the Giants. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shephard are now at the helm of the Giants' receiving corps.

Giants | Victor Cruz to be cut

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 09:48:11 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz will be released Monday, Feb. 13, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz showed some signs of life after two years of debilitating injuries. However, he didn't show the game-breaking ability he had before he tore the patellar tendon in his knee. His final line was 39-586-1, and he'll be 31 in November. He could still be worth a WR5 flyer if he landed in the right situation.

Giants | Victor Cruz uncertain about return

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 09:01:43 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz wants to play out the final two years of his contract with the team, but he admits the "ball is in (the Giants') court" when it comes to sticking around. Cruz has a $9.4 million salary cap hit next season and will likely need to take a pay cut for the second straight season in order to stay. Cruz agreed to reduce his base salary from $7.9 million to $1.3 million for the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is due a $1 million roster bonus on March 11, so that date could be one to remember in terms of his employment with the Giants. The odds are very strong he will be released sometime before then. Expect New York to address the position in the draft again this year after landing Sterling Shepard last spring.

Giants | Victor Cruz may be cap casualty

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 10:52:24 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz could be a cap casualty this offseason because the team would save $7.5 million in salary cap space if he is released. He is currently scheduled to count $9.4 million against the 2017 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will be available during free agency but could re-sign with the Giants at a lower price. He probably will be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver no matter where he signs next season and would only be a No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

Giants | Victor Cruz wants to remain in New York

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 09:23:38 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz finished the season with 39 receptions for 586 yards and one touchdown after missing most of the previous two years with knee and calf injuries. He wants to return, but he is slated to make $6.4 million (and count $9.4 million against the cap) in 2017. "This is family. This is home. I don't know anywhere else. I don't want to know anywhere else," Cruz said.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz would still count for $1.9 million against the cap if he is cut in the offseason, but his release would provide $7.5 million worth of savings for the team, so he's probably done in New York unless he's willing to accept a huge pay cut. Given the expected drop-off in speed and quickness he displayed in 2016, he'll be hard-pressed to find a fantasy-worthy gig in 2017.

Giants | Eight grabs for Victor Cruz

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 21:01:18 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had a season-high eight catches for 84 yards in a 24-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz had one of his best games of the year, but he is typically only good for a couple grabs. He can still be avoided going forward.
