Giants | Victor Cruz has good chance to play

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 10:51:36 -0700

New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said he is very optimistic about WR Victor Cruz's (groin) availability for the preseason game against the New York Jets Saturday, Aug. 27.

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.

Giants | Victor Cruz impresses at camp

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 17:20:41 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not show any signs of a lingering groin injury at practice Tuesday, Aug. 23, and he displayed quickness off the line of scrimmage. Cruz was a full participant in practice for the first time since Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: A step in the right direction, but we need to see a lot more than one practice to jump on the bandwagon. Think of him as a shaky WR5 at this point.

Giants | Victor Cruz to practice in full

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 08:13:08 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will practice with no expected limitations Tuesday, Aug. 23. If all goes well this week, he'll play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is wading in deep waters for his fantasy life after repeated injuries. He's in the WR5 mix, but he has the talent for more if he can return to his pre-patella injury form.

Giants | Victor Cruz will return Monday

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 12:57:24 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will return to practice Monday, Aug. 22, although it will not be a full practice. He could practice fully on Tuesday, Aug. 23, however, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: It's encouraging that Cruz is finally returning, but he has some convincing to do after not playing since 2014. Sterling Shepard may have already supplanted Cruz as the No. 2 wide receiver with the Giants, so don't view Cruz as more than a WR5 with the large amount of risk he brings.

Giants | Victor Cruz not ready to play

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 11:41:04 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) will not play Saturday, Aug. 20, against the Buffalo Bills. He will continue working with a trainer Sunday, Aug. 21, and plans to practice Monday, Aug. 22 in hopes of playing against the New York Jets next week.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz's struggle with good health has been well documented as he hasn't taken the field since 2014. Caution should be used, and drafting Sterling Shepard in an earlier round is probably the better way to go incase Cruz's issues continue to persist. Don't completely rule him out of your draft strategy, though.

Giants | Victor Cruz sits again

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 10:33:05 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz probably will miss at least one of the preseason games remaining and it is not known when he will be back on the field. He has dealt with injuries over the past several seasons, which makes him a risky option for owners. Cruz could be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

Giants | Victor Cruz works on side

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 11:12:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not practice Wednesday, Aug. 17, but was able to do more work on the sidelines, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz will need to return to the practice field before he is able to play in any games, so owners will need to monitor the situation. He will be a risky player for owners because of his injury history but could be a late-round option in deeper leagues if he is healthy.

Giants | Victor Cruz out again Wednesday

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 08:49:20 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) is out of practice Wednesday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz still has enough talent to use as a WR5 flyer as he attempts to make it make from multiple serious leg injuries.

Giants | Victor Cruz could practice Wednesday

Mon, 15 Aug 2016 16:09:25 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) may return to practice in some capacity Wednesday, Aug. 17, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz still faces an uphill battle in his return to action this year. This week could be that next step forward. It's unclear if he'll be ready to play by Week 1, but drafting him as a low-end WR4 or high-end WR5 isn't the worst course of action.
