|Giants | Victor Cruz glad to be back|
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:21:53 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) was glad to be back among his teammates and coaches during the Giants' first offseason workout Tuesday, April 26. Head coach Ben McAddo is taking it slow with Cruz this offseason, but said he's ready to practice. Cruz anticipates being the same player he used to be before suffering his prolonged injuries. "I'm not in the business to go out there and be half of myself or half of what I was," Cruz said. "I want to go out there and be 100% and be the same player that I once was."
Fantasy Tip: Cruz has missed just over two and a half seasons because of injuries, missing all of the 2015 season. There is a great deal of risk in drafting Cruz this year because of the prolonged absence and the severity of his injuries. He's still worth drafting because of what he offers, but don't draft him as more than a WR4.

|Giants | Victor Cruz says he is healthy|
Sat, 23 Apr 2016 09:38:51 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) said he has been training and that he is 100% at this point. Cruz said he likely will be limited during offseason workouts but wants to be a full participant during training camp.
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Cruz is on the right track with his recovery and may be ready for camp. Cruz has missed most of the last two seasons because of injuries and will be a risk in fantasy drafts. Cruz could be an option in the late rounds of drafts but will not be a weekly starter.

|Giants | Tempered expectations for Victor Cruz|
Thu, 21 Apr 2016 18:43:52 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz's (knee, calf) progress has pleased doctors, but general manager Jerry Reese said the team isn't counting on Cruz to produce in 2016. "We expect him to be full go," Reese said. "He hasn't played in two years. He's probably more healthy than he's been in the last two years. What we get from Victor will be a bonus and we're hoping it's a great bonus for us."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should take the same approach as the Giants when it comes to Cruz. Draft him in the later rounds, and it consider it a bonus if he ends up producing useful numbers.

|Giants | Victor Cruz restructures deal|
Wed, 09 Mar 2016 17:53:01 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz has agreed to restructure his contract, according to sources. He will receive a base salary of $1.3 million in 2016. The contract also includes $5.5 million in playing time incentives and production incentives that will allow him to earn the rest of his previous salary.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz was in danger of being released if he did not restructure his contract, so he should be a part of the Giants next season. He was not able to play in 2015, so owners should check on his participation during offseason workouts and training camp. Cruz could be a late-round option in deeper leagues in 2016 if he does not suffer any setbacks.

|Giants | Victor Cruz must restructure contract|
Mon, 07 Mar 2016 08:16:48 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz is willing to accept a pay cut to stay with New York, and a source said the Giants have told Cruz he must do that. The Giants are in negotiations with Cruz's agent, Tom Condon, who has been told his client would be released without a contract negotiation. Cruz hasn't played in an NFL game in 17 months because of injury. He's scheduled to make $7.9 million this year with a salary cap hit of $9.9 million.
Fantasy Tip: There's definitely no guarantee that Cruz can regain his form after missing all of 2015. Odell Beckham Jr. has asserted himself as the team's clear No. 1 receiver these days. Cruz might be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues in 2016 if he proves healthy in training camp.

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 19:03:42 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Cruz missed all of last season, and injuries have hit him hard the last couple of seasons. He is worth a late-round flier in drafts, but he is not a sure thing by any means.

|Giants | Victor Cruz likely to stay|
Wed, 24 Feb 2016 06:05:41 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Cruz will be around 18 months removed from a torn patellar tendon, and he'll have to show us something in camp before he's anything more than a WR5.

|Giants | Victor Cruz on the bubble?|
Mon, 22 Feb 2016 16:46:18 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz could be on the roster bubble since he is scheduled to count $9.9 million against the salary cap next season. It is believed that Cruz would be willing to take a pay cut in order to stay with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz has not played since the middle of the 2014 season because of various injuries, so he likely will not return at his current salary. The team probably will look to add receivers in free agency and the draft, which may push Cruz down the depth chart. Owners should monitor the situation during the offseason, but he is not a great fantasy option entering next season.
