Giants | NYG receivers catch endorsement

Wed, 20 May 2015 18:18:20 -0700

New York Giants WRs Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle all received strong endorsements from ex-Giants WR Stephen Baker Tuesday, May 19. "I think [the Giants offense] will be a matchup nightmare, and I love the diversity of the receivers," said Baker. "You've got little Cruz, who can shake and bake in the middle, then you've got Beckham on the outside, who's just explosive, and then you have Randle, I consider him a smooth receiver, when he catches a pass, he just looks smooth. I like him as a third down possession-type guy," Baker said.

Fantasy Tip: With the vast majority of fantasy owners enamored by Beckham Jr., Cruz and Randle will be available at huge discounts following disappointing seasons. Beckham Jr. will be drawing the focus of opposing defenses, leaving plenty of room for his fellow wideouts to operate.

Giants | Victor Cruz not rushing rehab

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:28:54 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he will not rush his rehab in order to participate in offseason workouts and minicamps. Cruz has a good chance to be ready for training camp. He is feeling good and has not reported swelling in the knee even after workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz does not have to participate in offseason workouts, so he likely is working on being ready for camp. Cruz could be eased back into the lineup early in the season but should still have a solid role as one of the top three receivers. Owners could consider Cruz as a No. 3 receiver in drafts next season.

Giants | Victor Cruz begins making cuts

Wed, 13 May 2015 06:25:42 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) has begun making cuts in his routes, and he labeled himself about 75-80% in his recovery from a torn patellar tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz appears to be on track for the start of the season, but the type of injury he suffered is one that is difficult to return from. You're probably looking at a WR3 flyer with significant risk and solid reward with Cruz.

Giants | Victor Cruz won't practice in minicamp

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:06:29 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will not participate in team practices during the Giants' minicamp, but will be doing some of his own rehabilitation work. Cruz has already started running routes as he recovers from a torn patellar tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz seems to steadily be making progress as he attempts to be ready for Week 1 of the 2015 season. Cruz has already said that he believes he'll be ready for the start of the season and that he'll be able to return to pre-injury form. If he is healthy, he'll still have Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle to contend with in the Giants' offense. He has WR2 potential if he can stay on the field and play the way he did before the injury.

Giants | Victor Cruz improving

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:05:43 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) did not experience swelling in his injured knee after running routes and doing some agility drills.

Giants | Victor Cruz thinks he will play Week 1

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 11:08:24 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he believes that he will be ready to play in the season opener next season and play like he did before he suffered the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is working his way back from a serious injury, so owners should monitor his rehab over the offseason. Cruz will be a risky option in drafts next season but could be an option in the middle to late rounds if he is able to return from the injury.

Giants | G-Men uncertain about Victor Cruz

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:39:42 -0700

The New York Giants do not know whether and to what extent WR Victor Cruz (knee) will recover from the severe knee injury he suffered last season. He might not be ready for the start of training camp, and if he can go Cruz is expected to be on a somewhat limited program.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz suffered that torn patellar tendon in a prime time game last season, perhaps one of the saddest scene on the field in all of 2014. He is a huge wild card heading into fantasy drafts in 2015. He could return to form, or miss the entire season. No one can say for certain at this point.

Giants | NY optimistic on Victor Cruz

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:17:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) "looks really good and light," according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz started running last week six months after he tore the patellar tendon in his knee in Week 6. Coughlin projects Cruz to be available for the start of training camp, but he's unsure if Cruz will be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. However, the team remains cautiously optimistic about Cruz in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: It seems unlikely that Cruz will ever the player he once was after going through this devastating injury. Making it back for Week 1 may be a big stretch, too. Don't expect Cruz to have much fantasy value at all in 2015.

Giants | Victor Cruz could miss opener

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 08:46:31 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) could miss the start of the 2015 season with a torn patellar tendon in his knee, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz's goal is to be ready for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz might be lucky to have any fantasy football relevance at all in 2015 after suffering such a debilitating and horrific injury to his knee. He's fighting a very steep uphill battle to return, and it was an injury that often robs players of their explosiveness, which was a big part of Cruz's game. Keep an eye on his recovery, but don't expect much out of him this season.

Giants | Victor Cruz looks good

Sat, 21 Feb 2015 07:21:35 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) looks good as he continues to recover from a torn right pateller tendon in his knee, according to general manager Jerry Reese. Reese said the Giants would not put all their eggs in that basket heading into next year.

Fantasy Tip: If Cruz can stay healthy next season, there is some upside to owning him in fantasy football, especially with team's trying to slow down Odell Beckham Jr. Still, health will be the big question, and Cruz should be considered a WR2 at this point.

Giants | Victor Cruz may start running soon

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 16:05:55 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) may commence running shortly, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. Cruz is recovering from a torn right patellar tendon in his right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Odell Beckham Jr. will be the wide receiver to own from the Giants, but a healthy Victor Cruz shouldn't be overlooked by any means, though he will not have as much value as he has had in previous years. If he can play a full season, there's still potential for WR2 numbers to be had.

Giants | Victor Cruz hopes to be ready for camp

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 10:36:57 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said he hopes to be ready for the start of training camp next season but will listen to the doctors. Cruz believes his leg could be stronger than it was before the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has several months to rehab his knee before the start of camp, so owners should monitor his situation during the offseason. He likely will fall down drat boards in 2015 because of the injury but could be a solid draft selection if he is able to return to pre-injury form.

Giants | Victor Cruz running on treadmill

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 08:28:26 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) said his rehab from a knee injury is going well, and he is running on a treadmill.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Cruz, who appears to be right on schedule. Monitor his progress in the offseason before you consider adding him to your roster in 2015.

Giants | Victor Cruz to have lengthy rehab

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 13:28:29 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) will rehab at the team's facility for the next two to three months and believes he will need four to eight months to recover from his surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz will miss the rest of this season and could also miss some offseason workouts because of his rehab. Cruz likely will be lower on wide receiver rankings for 2015, but owners will need to see how he is doing before considering drafting him.

Giants | Victor Cruz to IR

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 15:03:33 -0700

Giants | Victor Cruz's career in jeopardy?

Tue, 14 Oct 2014 11:09:59 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) won't ever be the same after his season-ending knee injury, according to Dr. David Chao. "He can return to 100 percent, but it (his knee) is a car in a car accident," said Chao, a former NFL team physician. "Never brand new when fixed." There is no timetable for Cruz's rehab, and there is no prognosis for the rest of his career. His injury could rob him of his explosiveness and change-of-direction ability. A handful of NFL players have returned from this type of injury, but none of them discovered their elite form. A torn patellar tendon can't be fixed arthroscopically, so it needs a massive open procedure that will require lengthy and painful rehab. Cruz will need to rebuild the muscles around the tendon, and it'll likely be six months before he can even try to run again.

Fantasy Tip: It's a tough break for Cruz. A lot will depend on how his rehab goes as far as his chances of returning next season to make a fantasy football impact. The Giants will be even more determined to develop their young receivers like Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr.

Giants | Victor Cruz has surgery

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 16:04:57 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) underwent successful season-ending patellar tendon surgery on his right knee Monday, Oct. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz won't be able to return until next summer. You can drop him in all standard, one-year leagues. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. will see the roles expand drastically with Cruz out of action for the rest of the year.

Giants | Victor Cruz undergoing surgery

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 11:54:46 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn patellar tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will miss the rest of the 2014 because of the injury, so owners should check on the waiver wire for available receivers. Odell Beckham Jr. likely will have a bigger role in the offense and could be an option for owners looking for help at the position.

Giants | Victor Cruz to undergo more tests

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 11:19:33 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) has been transferred from Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia to Hospital for Special Surgery in New York in order to undergo more testing. Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz likely will miss the rest of the season, so owners should start looking for a replacement. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. likely will become the team's starting receivers and should have fantasy value.

Giants | Victor Cruz tears patella tendon

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 19:27:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) was taken off on a cart after suffering a torn patellar tendon in his right knee. As he was carted off, he was sobbing on the way back to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: No matter what side of fantasy or the NFC East rivalry you're on, that was sad watching the undrafted free agent turned Pro Bowler leave in tears and terrible pain. For fantasy purposes, Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. will climb the depth chart, and preseason star rookie Corey Washington could even see time. Cruz's 2014 season is over, and he can be dropped in all formats.

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 19:26:07 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) suffered an apparent right knee injury in the third quarter of the Week 6 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. On a fourth and goal play to the corner of the end zone, Cruz was unable to haul in a fade from QB Eli Manning. He went down and immediately grasped his right knee.

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.

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

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.

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.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. viewed as outside guy

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 20:33:39 -0700

New York Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. is viewed as an outside receiver despite standing just 5-foot-11, and he might push WR Rueben Randle for the No. 2 job opposite WR Victor Cruz.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham is a Top 60 fantasy receiver heading into the season, and he obviously has quite a bit of upside. He is worth nabbing in the area of Rounds 12-16 on draft day in most fantasy formats.

New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to play on the outside with WR Rueben Randle, according to Giants general manager Jerry Reese. WR Victor Cruz will play out of the slot. Reese also noted the return of WR Mario Manningham to the offense.

Fantasy Tip: It is presumed that Beckham will battle Manningham for a starting job in training camp and the preseason. Should he win the job, the electric rookie is a WR4 in standard formats.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. selected 12th overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 18:23:28 -0700

The New York Giants selected Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: They decided to go with a complementary weapon for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Eli Manning is still a sound fantasy backup who has a bit more potential if New York can protect him a bit better. Beckham is a better long-term prospect than for 2014, but he's a capable reserve fantasy catcher due to his speed. Maybe Ben McAdoo will use him creatively.

Giants | Former OC defends Eli Manning

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:28:16 -0700

Former New York Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said in a radio interview this week that it is "ludicrous" to say QB Eli Manning is declining. "There's been no deterioration of his arm strength, there's been no lack of preparation and effort," Gilbride said. "I think he's going to be fine as soon as they solidify the offensive line. They certainly made a move to do that by bringing in three interior offensive linemen and as soon as they get somebody that's going to be productive for them as an outside receiver. WR Victor Cruz is terrific, but they need somebody that when they go to match up, bump and run (and) go win for them."

Giants | Victor Cruz thinks he could be used like Randall Cobb

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 13:18:13 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he believes he could be used like the Green Bay Packers use WR Randall Cobb, because offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo worked with the Packers in 2013. "I do see myself as a Randall Cobb," Cruz said. "Hopefully I can sneak in that backfield for a couple plays. I don't know how effective that will be. But we'll definitely see where it takes us. But we'll see. I'm excited to be all over the field this year."

Fantasy Tip: Cruz likely will be a starting wide receiver in all leagues next season, and any rushing stats he could provide would be an extra bonus.

Giants | Changing offensive approach

Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:12:14 -0800

With the hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the New York Giants are admitting that they will change up their offensive approach to be more successful in 2014. "We're going to try to compromise the system with what we have here," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "However, there will be change, and that change will be very positive and very well-received by our team and players. And if our players are scrambling around to learn a new system -- good. That's another fire in their rear end." The new offensive scheme should help WR Victor Cruz, and it'll require QB Eli Manning to go through his progressions quickly and deliver the ball to playmakers in space.
