Giants | Victor Cruz thinks he could be used like Randall Cobb

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 13:18:13 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he believes he could be used like the Green Bay Packers use WR Randall Cobb, because offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo worked with the Packers in 2013. "I do see myself as a Randall Cobb," Cruz said. "Hopefully I can sneak in that backfield for a couple plays. I don't know how effective that will be. But we'll definitely see where it takes us. But we'll see. I'm excited to be all over the field this year."

Fantasy Tip: Cruz likely will be a starting wide receiver in all leagues next season, and any rushing stats he could provide would be an extra bonus.

Giants | Changing offensive approach

Wed, 15 Jan 2014 09:12:14 -0800

With the hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the New York Giants are admitting that they will change up their offensive approach to be more successful in 2014. "We're going to try to compromise the system with what we have here," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "However, there will be change, and that change will be very positive and very well-received by our team and players. And if our players are scrambling around to learn a new system -- good. That's another fire in their rear end." The new offensive scheme should help WR Victor Cruz, and it'll require QB Eli Manning to go through his progressions quickly and deliver the ball to playmakers in space.

Sat, 28 Dec 2013 07:31:03 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he wants to work in the offseason to eliminate any disconnect with QB Eli Manning.

"That's one thing we lacked … that continuity from a receiver standpoint with our quarterback. And I want to build that earlier this year. We've got to set some time apart and get the receivers down with Eli whenever he's ready and kind of just schedule it right so we can just build, not only on the field, but off the field."
