Sun, 23 Oct 2016 10:07:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz has been targeted at least seven times in three of the last four games but has not posted more than 55 yards in any of those games. Cruz could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

|Giants | Victor Cruz busy under the lights|
Mon, 03 Oct 2016 20:58:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz hasn't made it all the way back yet, but he has posted 50 or more yards in each of his past three games while averaging four grabs per game in his four outings so far this season. Cruz is worth using as a low-end WR3 in most fantasy formats.

|Giants | Victor Cruz believes breakout is close|
Sat, 01 Oct 2016 17:43:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz has 161 receiving yards in the last two games, but since he is No. 3 in the pecking order for targets, his value is limited to deeper PPR formats.

Fantasy Tip: Beckham had four catches for 73 yards in the season opener, while Cruz caught four passes for 34 yards and a touchdown in his first game in nearly two years. Both players have favorable matchups for Week 2's contest against the New Orleans Saints.

|Giants | Victor Cruz realistic entering 2016|
Sat, 10 Sep 2016 09:38:56 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz, who took a total of 38 preseason snaps this summer after missing all the 2015 season with a calf injury, has missed his team's last 26 contests. However, he will play his first game in 700 days when the Giants visit the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1. "I can't do it," Cruz said when asked about being able to reach the gaudy numbers he posted prior to tearing his patellar tendon in 2014. "I just have to play and think about what I'm doing out there on that field, and not setting (numerical) goals and expectations."
Fantasy Tip: Any contribution from Cruz at all should be considered a bonus by the Giants and fantasy owners. Patellar tendon tears are among the most devastating injuries an athlete can suffer and no player to date has been able to recapture his pre-injury form after receiving such a diagnosis. If he merely serves as a viable threat while Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard carry the passing game, he will be doing his job. Consider Cruz nothing more than a WR5 in fantasy.

|Giants | Victor Cruz making progress|
Thu, 01 Sep 2016 20:24:57 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz failed to record a catch in the preseason finale against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 1, but he said he is "slowly but surely" regaining his quickness and ability to create separation.
Fantasy Tip: Injuries have derailed Cruz's promising career, and he is no more than a late-round flier at this point.

|Giants | Victor Cruz will play Thursday|
Wed, 31 Aug 2016 09:54:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz hasn't played a regular season game since Week 6 in 2014, and he just returned to practice Monday, Aug. 22. He's nothing more than a lottery-ticket selection in the end of deep drafts. However, there is some upside if he carves out a role in the offense.

|Giants | Victor Cruz gets back into game action|
Sat, 27 Aug 2016 19:32:20 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) had one reception for four yards in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the New York Jets. It was his first catch in a game in 22 months due to his major knee injury and recovery. "It felt great (to) put this 80 jersey back on and get the love of the crowd…it was a great feeling," Cruz said.
Fantasy Tip: Cruz is slowly making his way back, but he is still no lock for the 53-man roster. Only fantasy owners with deep benches and plenty of patience will want to take a chance on Cruz.

|Giants | Victor Cruz has good chance to play|
Thu, 25 Aug 2016 10:51:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will receive limited playing time if he is active for the game since he has not played in a game in two years. Cruz has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game this season and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues despite his injury history.

|Giants | Victor Cruz sharp again in practice|
Wed, 24 Aug 2016 10:45:56 -0700
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz caught three passes during team drills and a touchdown pass during a red-zone drill during practice Wednesday, Aug. 23. He is on pace to play against the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 27.
Fantasy Tip: It's another step in the right direction for Cruz, but he's still nothing more than a late-round flier in fantasy leagues. How he holds up in game action should be more telling. Continue to temper your expectations for now.
