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.

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.

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.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Bullock will be the kicker for at least Week 1 since Josh Brown is suspended, but it is not known if Bullock will keep the job. The Giants offense should be productive this season, so Bullock could be a starting option in daily fantasy leagues for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants will need a replacement for Josh Brown in Week 1. Bullock would compete with Tom Obarski for Week 1 kicking duties if he is signed. Whether or not he would be kept long term is another matter. Josh Brown should still be the main man after his one-game suspension, though, and is still in PK1 territory.

New York Giants PK Tom Obarski missed a 28-yard field goal during his team's exhibition game against the Buffalo Bills, potentially putting his status as the Week 1 kicker in jeopardy. Regular PK Josh Brown is suspended for the first week for violation of the NFL's domestic violence policy.
Fantasy Tip: Obarski would have minimal fantasy value except in weekly leagues or fantasy contests, but missing one of these puppy shots will not endear him to New York fans. Your best bet is to go elsewhere if you need a backup kicker for Brown in the first week.

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.
