Fantasy Tip: Cruz will be eased back into practice since he missed the entire 2015 season because of injuries. Owners will need to monitor him during training camp to see if he is making good progress in his return. He will be a risky option for owners because of his injury history, but should be a solid option in the late rounds of drafts.

New York Giants DT Damon Harrison (knee) will be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of swelling in his knee. LB J.T. Thomas (hamstring) and DT Jay Bromley (ankle) will also be placed on the PUP list.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee) continues to make his way back from the serious knee injury he suffered in the 2014 season. While he might make it back through training camp and be healthy enough to play in the regular season, beat writer Ralph Vacchiano doesn't believe Cruz will post more than 50 receptions.
Fantasy Tip: Not only is Cruz making his way back from a major injury, but he now has rookie Sterling Shepard to contend with for receptions, as well as Odell Beckham Jr. Cruz is likely to be third fiddle among the receivers, at best, and might also be behind Larry Donnell and/or Will Tye, as well as Shane Vereen in the passing game. Fantasy owners might want to take a flier on him in the final round on draft day, but that's about it.

New York Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul might not reach the 12.5 sack level he posted in 2014 after back surgery and before his fireworks accident, but beat writer Ralph Vacchiano still believes Pierre-Paul will have a big impact on the team's defense and pass rush, especially with DE Olivier Vernon working on the other side.

New York Giants FS Darian Thompson impressed the coaching staff during the spring, and he is in the mix to start with SS Landon Collins. Safeties Nat Berhe, Cooper Taylor and Mykkele Thompson are also in the competition.

Fantasy Tip: This position battle could come down to preseason. Whoever wins, however, should not be viewed as a starting fantasy tight end.

New York Giants QB Ryan Nassib isn't likely to be traded as the window to do so has likely closed. The Giants may let him test the free-agent waters next offseason and attempt to re-sign him if he isn't offered a starting job.

Fantasy Tip: Williams has done very little in his first two seasons. He would need that stellar camp and then some to be worth taking as an RB5 right now.

Fantasy Tip: There is no guarantee Cruz will be able to stay healthy, let alone play at a high level. However, he is a great player to gamble on in the later rounds of drafts.

Fantasy Tip: It is unclear exactly what McAdoo means by "bounce-back year" for Williams, whose best season was averaging 3.3 yards per carry as a rookie in 2014. Williams reportedly dropped weight in the offseason, but he has no business stealing reps from Rashad Jennings or rookie Paul Perkins unless he has completely transformed his running style. Consider him an extreme longshot to be a fantasy factor in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Cruz has dealt with injuries over the last two seasons but should have a decent role in the passing game if he is healthy. Owners probably should consider Cruz in the late rounds of drafts this season.

New York Giants CB Eli Apple may not receive significant playing time early in the season because CBs Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Janoris Jenkins will be the starting cornerbacks, and the nickel back job does not appear be a natural fit for Apple.
