Giants | Victor Cruz may be cap casualty

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 10:52:24 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz could be a cap casualty this offseason because the team would save $7.5 million in salary cap space if he is released. He is currently scheduled to count $9.4 million against the 2017 salary cap.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will be available during free agency but could re-sign with the Giants at a lower price. He probably will be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver no matter where he signs next season and would only be a No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

Giants | Victor Cruz wants to remain in New York

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 09:23:38 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz finished the season with 39 receptions for 586 yards and one touchdown after missing most of the previous two years with knee and calf injuries. He wants to return, but he is slated to make $6.4 million (and count $9.4 million against the cap) in 2017. "This is family. This is home. I don't know anywhere else. I don't want to know anywhere else," Cruz said.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz would still count for $1.9 million against the cap if he is cut in the offseason, but his release would provide $7.5 million worth of savings for the team, so he's probably done in New York unless he's willing to accept a huge pay cut. Given the expected drop-off in speed and quickness he displayed in 2016, he'll be hard-pressed to find a fantasy-worthy gig in 2017.

Giants | Eight grabs for Victor Cruz

Thu, 22 Dec 2016 21:01:18 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had a season-high eight catches for 84 yards in a 24-19 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Dec. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz had one of his best games of the year, but he is typically only good for a couple grabs. He can still be avoided going forward.

Giants | Victor Cruz has a long catch

Sun, 18 Dec 2016 14:22:07 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz caught a 29-yard pass from QB Eli Manning in a 17-6 win over the Detroit Lions. It was Cruz's only catch of the game.

Fantasy Tip: This may have been Cruz's finale in a Giants uniform at New York, and if so he is auditioning for a role elsewhere. Injuries have robbed Cruz of some effectiveness, but he can still salsa at the age of 30. Cruz might have some good years ahead as a WR2 or WR3 if he can recover some of the magic.

Giants | Victor Cruz sees sporadic play

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:20:10 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz played 26 snaps (43 percent of the offense) Sunday, Dec. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz didn't have a reception or a target in Week 13, and it's pretty clear he's not heavily in the offensive game plan.

Giants | Just one grab for Victor Cruz

Sun, 27 Nov 2016 20:37:50 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz posted just one grab for 37 yards on five targets in the Week 12 game against the Cleveland Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has been limited to one catch in each of his past three games. While they have each been big plays, he just isn't getting enough looks to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.

Giants | Victor Cruz taken off injury report

Fri, 18 Nov 2016 12:38:23 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) has been removed from the injury report ahead of his team's Week 11 tilt Sunday, Nov. 20, against the Chicago Bears. He was a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Although it looks like he'll be able to return after missing last week's Monday Night bout opposite the Bengals, Cruz isn't really an option for most leagues, as he's merely been just a background player for the Giants this season. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 1, and in his last outing, he managed only one reception. Cruz can be avoided outside the deepest of leagues.

Giants | Full practice for Victor Cruz

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 10:40:03 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 17. Offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said Cruz was moving around well during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz likely will be able to play in Week 11 unless he suffers a setback in the next few days. He should receive a decent amount of targets during the game and can be a flex option for owners.

Giants | Victor Cruz practicing

Thu, 17 Nov 2016 09:24:25 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) was participating during the media access portion of practice Thursday, Nov. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz was not able to play in Week 10 but looks like he will have a solid chance to play this week if he does not suffer an injury. He will be a risky option because of the injury if he plays but could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Giants | Limited practice for Victor Cruz

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 13:49:51 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Don't trust Cruz to produce right out of the gate after an extended absence, even in a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears. It's best to wait and see how his ankle reacts to a return to the field, if he does indeed return.
