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.

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'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.
