Giants | Victor Cruz is on schedule

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 10:38:11 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is on schedule in his recovery process from a calf injury for which he missed all of last season. Cruz practiced for a second straight day Saturday, July 30, without limitations.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants will probably still take it easy with Cruz leading up to the regular season. He may not be counted on as much as in previous seasons, though, with promising rookie Sterling Shepard in the mix. If Cruz stays healthy he could be a draft-day steal, though.

Giants | Victor Cruz at practice

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 07:54:55 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) is practicing Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has missed most of the last two seasons due to a torn patellar tendon and a calf injury. You can't sneeze at the potential upside that comes from Odell Beckham Jr. commanding so much attention from defenses. If Cruz has anything left, he's in a prime spot to showcase it. He's in the WR5 mix in fantasy.

Giants | Victor Cruz avoids PUP list

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 11:28:10 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) will not be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list but will be limited during the early part of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz will be eased back into practice since he missed the entire 2015 season because of injuries. Owners will need to monitor him during training camp to see if he is making good progress in his return. He will be a risky option for owners because of his injury history, but should be a solid option in the late rounds of drafts.

Giants | Betting against Victor Cruz?

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 22:51:05 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) continues to make his way back from the serious knee injury he suffered in the 2014 season. While he might make it back through training camp and be healthy enough to play in the regular season, beat writer Ralph Vacchiano doesn't believe Cruz will post more than 50 receptions.

Fantasy Tip: Not only is Cruz making his way back from a major injury, but he now has rookie Sterling Shepard to contend with for receptions, as well as Odell Beckham Jr. Cruz is likely to be third fiddle among the receivers, at best, and might also be behind Larry Donnell and/or Will Tye, as well as Shane Vereen in the passing game. Fantasy owners might want to take a flier on him in the final round on draft day, but that's about it.

Giants | Optimism around Victor Cruz

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:42:19 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) has made good progress in his recovery, and there is optimism he can return to his pre-injury form.

Fantasy Tip: There is no guarantee Cruz will be able to stay healthy, let alone play at a high level. However, he is a great player to gamble on in the later rounds of drafts.

Giants | Victor Cruz expects to be ready for camp

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 05:39:13 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf, knee) said he will be ready to participate once training camp begins.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has dealt with injuries over the last two seasons but should have a decent role in the passing game if he is healthy. Owners probably should consider Cruz in the late rounds of drafts this season.

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.
