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.

Giants | Victor Cruz should practice Thursday

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 14:00:40 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is expected to return to practice Thursday, Nov. 17, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has done little in his comeback season so far, and he may still be hampered if/when he returns in Week 11. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepherd should remain New York's top two receiving options. Cruz is just too risky to start even in a plus matchup with the Chicago Bears.

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 16:17:10 -0800

Giants | Victor Cruz ruled out for MNF

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 11:21:41 -0800

Updating a previous story, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) will not play in Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: Roger Lewis figures to get the start and should see a ton of snaps as the Giants use as many three-wide sets as any team in the league. Dwayne Harris may also factor in as well, but Cruz's absence means Eli Manning will probably rely more heavily on Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard more often this evening.

Giants | Victor Cruz likely a no-go for MNF

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 09:52:14 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is not expected to play Monday, Nov. 14, to end Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals. While Cruz was encouraged by how his ankle felt during treatment this week, the team is reportedly choosing to play it cautious.

Fantasy Tip: Roger Lewis has one catch in each of the last three weeks as he has started to mix in with Cruz and found the end zone on two of those opportunities. It's hard to get too excited about him in fantasy tonight despite the likely increased opportunities he will see and big-play ability he has already flashed, so only owners who were counting on Cruz going tonight should consider him as an option.

Giants | Victor Cruz likely out

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 07:06:10 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is unlikely to play in Week 10 Monday, Nov. 14. WR Roger Lewis will likely fill in for Cruz.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has two touchdowns during the last three games. However, he only has three catches and six targets all year. He's a desperation play if you need a flex option to replace an injured player or a bye week for Monday night.

Giants | Victor Cruz questionable for MNF

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 10:29:33 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) has yet to participate in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: If Cruz sits out as expected, Roger Lewis would be worth considering as a low-end flex option in deeper leagues. While Odell Beckham Jr. could see a bump in targets as well, Sterling Shepard should see the biggest increase in targets and could make the case to be a WR3 on Monday night.

Giants | Victor Cruz unable to practice

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 17:32:21 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) did not practice Friday, Nov. 11, missing his second consecutive day.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is a question mark for the Monday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals. It's a good idea to keep him reserved in all fantasy leagues if you normally depend upon him.

Giants | Victor Cruz unable to practice Friday

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:30:58 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is "making progress" but did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 11, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz was at least usable in fantasy over the first month of the season, but he has struggled to be a factor since Week 4. Roger Lewis has been coming on a bit of late with a pair of touchdowns over the last three games, but his role is far too inconsistent at the moment. If Cruz sits or is limited this week, it should free up a few more targets for Sterling Shepard.

Giants | Victor Cruz not practicing

Thu, 10 Nov 2016 09:52:05 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to check on Cruz's status later in the week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 10. He will be a risky option for owners since he plays on Monday Night Football. Cruz has posted average numbers over the last few weeks but has not scored a touchdown since Week 1. Owners probably will be able to find better options to use.

Giants | Victor Cruz shouldn't be out long

Tue, 08 Nov 2016 13:06:09 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) said he might miss just one game after suffering a low-grade right ankle sprain in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is dangerously close to being irrelevant in the fantasy realm, if he's not there already. He's not a recommended start even if he does play this week.

Giants | Victor Cruz suffered a sprain

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 16:38:41 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) suffered a sprained ankle in the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. His injury is not believed to be serious, although he'll have more tests Monday, Nov. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz finished with just one grab for 46 yards on one target. When healthy Cruz is only worth a look as a WR4 in deeper fantasy leagues at this point.

Giants | Victor Cruz ruled out

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 12:14:01 -0800

Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) is out for the remainder of the game Sunday, Nov. 6, against the Philadelphia Eagles due to an ankle injury.

Fantasy Tip: As the previous tip suggested, stay tuned to see if the Giants have to go in another direction with Cruz out, and also watch how long Cruz may be out.

Giants | Victor Cruz goes to locker room

Sun, 06 Nov 2016 11:21:15 -0800

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 9 and went to the locker room to undergo X-rays. He is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Cruz will have to miss time because of the injury. He has posted decent numbers this season and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is healthy. Sterling Shepard probably would receive more targets if Cruz misses time and can be a No. 3 receiver.

Giants | Victor Cruz feeling great

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 17:56:59 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said he is feeling great and is finally 100 percent healthy following knee and groin injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz's comeback is admirable, but he isn't worth owning in most fantasy formats.

Giants | Victor Cruz catches five passes

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 10:07:55 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz caught five passes for 55 yards against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 7.

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

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz was targeted nine times in the Week 4 game against the Minnesota Vikings, posting 50 yards on five receptions Monday, Oct. 3.

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

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz said the offense hasn't lived up to its potential yet, but he believes a breakout performance is close.

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.

Giants | Odell Beckham, Victor Cruz fined

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 06:08:27 -0700

New York Giants WRs Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz were each fined $12,124 by the NFL for a group celebration during Week 1's game against the Dallas Cowboys, according to a league source.

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

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz will play eight to 10 snaps during the final preseason game against the New England Patriots Thursday, Sept. 1.

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

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.

Giants | Victor Cruz still dealing with injury

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 10:49:06 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz's (groin) groin injury is still bothering him, according to head coach Ben McAdoo.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz was able to do some things during practice Sunday, Aug. 14, but he may not be a full participant in practice for a while. Cruz is a risky option for owners in all leagues but could be a late-round option if he is healthy for Week 1.

Giants | Victor Cruz on the field

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 09:37:43 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) participated in individual drills during practice Sunday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz missed the first preseason game because of the injury, so he probably will be limited over the next few days. Cruz is expected to have a solid role in the passing game if he is healthy this season. He could be a late-round option in deeper leagues but will not be a weekly starting option.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) has a chance to participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 14, according to head coach Ben McAdoo. Cruz missed the first preseason game because of a groin injury.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has dealt with injuries over the past two seasons, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation. Cruz could have a decent role in the passing game if he is able to stay healthy but will be a risky option for owners because of his injury history. He could be a late-round option in some fantasy leagues.

Giants | Two G-Men out of preseason opener

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 08:43:34 -0700

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and WR Victor Cruz (groin) won't play in the preseason opener Friday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing is wrong with Manning as it was a coach's decision for him to sit. Cruz is still trying to make it back from a torn patella and calf muscle that have kept him out the last season-and-a-half. He has WR5 value, but the leg injuries are starting to mount.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) said he is not worried about the groin injury which caused him to miss practice Wednesday, Aug. 10, and is taking it slow to prevent the injury from becoming a bigger issue.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is still worth a flier in the final rounds, but don't count on him to contribute. There is a real chance he will never fully healthy again.

Giants | Victor Cruz might not have spot

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 18:59:42 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) might not have a spot on the 53-man roster if it comes down to merit, according to beat writer Jordan Raanan. WRs Tavarres King, Roger Lewis, WR Darius Powe and WR Myles White have all made more plays.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is two years removed from a major injury, but apparently he is yet to bounce back to his pre-injury form. He is an extremely risky fantasy selection at this point, and it's probably best to let him be someone else's headache at this point while you stock up on more certain options.

Giants | Victor Cruz out of practice

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 08:46:56 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) is out of practice again Wednesday, Aug. 10. The team hasn't expressed concern yet.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz still holds WR5 upside, but the leg injuries are beginning to pile up. Torn patella tendons are serious injuries that rob athletes of their burst, and he has yet to make it all the way back from that.

Giants | Victor Cruz may not play Friday

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 11:50:17 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (groin) did not practice Tuesday, Aug. 9, with a tight groin, according to head coach Ben McAdoo. His status for Friday, Aug. 12, against the Miami Dolphins is uncertain.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants will take it easy with Cruz considering his extensive injury history and the severity of those injuries. If Cruz is at full health before the regular season starts, he should still be in the WR4 conversation.

Giants | Geremy Davis getting first-team reps

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 10:23:22 -0700

New York Giants WR Geremy Davis has been getting some repetitions with the first-team unit, as the club brings WR Victor Cruz (knee) along slowly. In the process, he's looked improved from last year.

Fantasy Tip: With Cruz still not back to 100% health, and Rueben Randle no longer in town, there will certainly be targets to garner alongside top receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Rookie Sterling Shepard looks like the most likely to emerge but if he fails to capitalize on his opportunity, Davis could get a shot at more looks and potentially make an impact.

Giants | Victor Cruz coming along

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 22:10:10 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) is coming along slowly in his return from a serious knee injury. He caught his first pass of the summer in 11-on-11 drills Tuesday, Aug. 2. He is slowly making progress.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz is likely to work as the No. 3 receiver if he can stay healthy and does not suffer any setbacks or additional injuries, but he will have to hold off the likes of Geremy Davis, Myles White and Roger Lewis. Cruz is worth a late-round fantasy pick if he can re-gain any of his pre-injury form.

Giants | Victor Cruz is on schedule

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 10:38:11 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (calf) is on schedule in his recovery process from a calf injury for which he missed all of last season. Cruz practiced for a second straight day Saturday, July 30, without limitations.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants will probably still take it easy with Cruz leading up to the regular season. He may not be counted on as much as in previous seasons, though, with promising rookie Sterling Shepard in the mix. If Cruz stays healthy he could be a draft-day steal, though.

Giants | Victor Cruz at practice

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 07:54:55 -0700

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, calf) is practicing Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has missed most of the last two seasons due to a torn patellar tendon and a calf injury.
