New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he hopes WR Victor Cruz attends organized team activities next week. "We get into some real practices next week so hopefully as we get into those live going-against-the-defense practices he'll get back in so we can get back to work," Manning said.

Mon, 15 Apr 2013 15:20:37 -0700
New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) said he has been running at full speed for a few weeks and is happy that he recently worked out with QB Eli Manning. "I kept it simple because it was my first time running routes," Nicks said. "I wasn't about to go out there and – it's still early right now. So my biggest thing is that I want my presence to be felt there with Eli. Because it is something that I do week-to-week. We're on the same page."
Fantasy Tip: Nicks dealt with injuries during the 2012 season and underwent knee surgery this offseason in hopes of fixing his knee. Nicks should be a solid No. 2 wide receiver on teams next season if he is healthy. Hicks could have a chance to be a low-end No. 1 receiver if Victor Cruz is not on the team.

New York Giants QB Eli Manning is preparing for the 2013 season by working out this week at Duke University in North Carolina, and he is assuming he'll have his receiving corps intact.

"(I'm) here with Coach Cutcliffe (to) have him work with my mechanics, get everything sharp and get everything prepared," Manning said Wednesday, April 10. "So when we start workouts next week, I am going there ready to go and improving and ready to get better."
Fantasy Tip: Manning is making strides to get better, and working with Coach Cut will hopefully help him cut down on his mistakes in 2013. He is already a bona fide No. 1 fantasy option, but he could be Top 5 at his position if he continues to show improvement.

Wed, 20 Mar 2013 11:17:58 -0700

Sat, 05 Jan 2013 08:17:22 -0800
New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the injury to WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) really hurt the offense, particularly QB Eli Manning, this season, and the team may have been better off giving Nicks more rest. "I think it starts (with) ... Hakeem Nicks has been one of the linchpins in our offense. He was banged up and I really think it took its toll on our offense and what we are trying to do," Reese said. "He was trying to fight through it. But in hindsight, I think if we had to think about it again, maybe we would have taken him out a little quicker than we did. But that is neither here or there at this point. But I do think it affected the quarterback's play some."

New York Giants QB Eli Manning said WR Hakeem Nicks' lack of practice time this year has hurt the duo's productivity on game day. "He's out there trying to do his best, so we just have to keep working, try to get on the same page. He missed most of training camp, all of the offseason, so you don't get that rep time. We don't get practice reps. He gets a few reps, he's not quite at full speed. The timing is off on a few things, and it can make it hard to be as effective as you need to be and be on the perfect timing that is required to be really successful." Nicks had only three targets in Week 16 and didn't have a catch for the first time in his four-year career.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 04:04:44 -0800

New York Giants QB Eli Manning and WR Hakeem Nicks are having timing issues because of the lack of practice reps due to Nicks' injury issues this year. "I love Hakeem and the way he competes,'' Manning said. "He's obviously dealing with a frustrating issue that's limiting him a little bit. He missed most of training camp, all of the off-season, so you don't get that rep time. We don't get practice reps. The timing is off on a few things and it can make it hard to be as effective as you need to be."

He had the ball down the seam to Victor that should've been a touchdown."
Mon, 12 Nov 2012 05:19:14 -0800
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said following Week 10 that his recent struggles are not due to arm fatigue. "I don't think so," Manning said. "I feel like I'm making the throws, and I don't feel like it's tired ... If my arm were tired, I would tell the coaches, and we would shut down some throws or throw a little bit less. I don't feel like we're overthrowing, I feel like when I'm making throws, the ball is coming out well, so I don't see anything into it." Head coach Tom Coughlin added there is nothing physically wrong with Manning.
Mon, 12 Nov 2012 05:13:54 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had just three receptions for 26 yards in Week 10 against a Cincinnati Bengals defense designed to take him out of the game plan. The Bengals were ready for the team's short-passing game after playing the Denver Broncos and QB Peyton Manning in Week 9. The Giants appeared to attempt the same strategy but managed just 45 yards after the catch on QB Eli Manning's 29 completions. "Everything was similar from last week's offense to this week's offense," LB Rey Maualuga said. "We knew that Victor Cruz was such a big part of their offense and is a great weapon. Most of our plays were based on doubling him and making sure where he aligned on every play. We wanted to execute him out of the game plan and then stop the run and I think we did a good job." WR Hakeem Nicks was the beneficiary of all the attention Cruz received. He caught nine passes for 75 yards and was targeted 14 times.

Sat, 10 Nov 2012 10:54:17 -0800
New York Giants QB Eli Manning said he believes the offense should be successful in the middle of the field when opposing defenses play their safeties deep to prevent long passing plays. "Usually, that's kind of when the middle of the field should be open," Manning said. "And guys in the middle of the field should be open. [TE Martellus Bennett], and [WR Victor Cruz] can still win his routes inside."
Sat, 10 Nov 2012 05:41:52 -0800

Mon, 05 Nov 2012 18:06:17 -0800
New York Giants WR Hakeem Nicks said the team's current three-game offensive slump is something he knew would happen. Last season, WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks each eclipsed 1,000 yards and QB Eli Manning shattered records. But eventually, Nicks said, defenses would adjust, and that's what's happening now.
The result has been increasingly physical play from opposing corners (Cruz's frustration), and a few different defensive looks. Nicks admitted Sunday that the Giants receivers were caught on their heels a few times, taken aback by the alignments of the Pittsburgh's secondary.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said following Week 9 that he needs QB Eli Manning to return to form. Manning was just 10-for-24 passing in the game. "We've got to get him back on track," Coughlin said. "He's our guy, (and) we've got to get him back to the way he was playing a couple weeks ago and do it in a hurry." Manning, however, feels he has been accurate with his passes. "I feel like I'm throwing the ball accurately when I have opportunities to. I don't feel off rhythm, no," Manning said. "I think, offensively, in the passing game, whether we're just running things we feel comfortable with or getting guys winning again so we get guys open, it's just a combination of … I don't feel like I'm throwing the ball inaccurate, I don't feel like I'm missing guys, so I think it's just a matter of getting back where offensively we're playing fast and making good decisions and guys are winning and we'll hit 'em."
