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 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.
