Fantasy Impact: Cruz looked pretty good in a half of play, and the Giants offense finally moved the ball on the last possession of the first half. "We were able to get into a little rhythm and showed what we could do," wide receiver Victor Cruz said. "It's something to build on, no question." Cruz should be good value in the 5th round.

Victor Cruz started watching film of Jerry Rice when he heard about Ben McAdoo being hired as offensive coordinator to install the west coast offense. "It’s definitely a little bit more pass happy than the offense we’ve had in the past, (Source: New York Daily News)

Fantasy Impact: Speaking of the new offense Cruz said, "It’s definitely a little bit more pass happy than the offense we’ve had in the past. Anytime a receiver can get the ball in his hands quicker, it’s beneficial." Cruz is primed for a bounce back year. His goals are lofty ones (100 catches, 1500 yards, 10 tds), but in McAdoo's offense 100 catches is attainable. As a slot guy, Cruz is shaping up to be a nice value pick in the 5th round of drafts.

Has a strong track record, and Giants' new offense should suit him.

New offensive scheme yet to click, O-line/Manning not looking much better thus far.
The Fake Football | Aug 26th
The Packers offense brought to New York by McCadoo should be a great fit for Cruz. The shorter, quick hitters coupled with his ability after the catch is a nice match.

Health is an issue and had down 2013. Could be had at awesome value.

Look for the Giants offense to rebound this year, and Cruz will be a big benificiary of this.

Eli Manning's #1 target and should continue to put up solid weekly numbers.
Fantasy Football Maniax | Aug 25th
I like Cruz, but his season was a major disappointment with 73 receptions for 998 yards and four receiving touchdowns, three of which came in the opener at Dallas. I expect somewhat of a bounce back season, but he is a WR3 until QB Eli Manning can show he remembers how to play quarterback.

Cruz says he has already fully recovered from his December 19th knee scope/procedure. He is expected to be 100 percent by the start of training camp.

Victor Cruz is being moved all over the field this season and will remain the primary slot WR for the Giants. Ben McAdoo, Ex-Green Bay Packer, is installing a west coast pass happy scheme in New York which suits Cruz perfectly. “It enhances my skills,” Cruz said about the new offense. Cruz will continue to see the majority of Targets in the New York Receiving Corps with an in-experienced group of Randle and Beckham. Eli Manning‘s unproductive 2013 season killed Cruz’s numbers, but hitting Cruz on the short passes in McAdoo’s scheme will limit interceptions allowing Victor Cruz to produce numbers after the catch. Cruz has claimed his goal is to catch 100 balls this season.

31 – Reuben Randle – Randle is one of our favorite sleeper candidates for the 2014 Fantasy Football season. At 6’3/208, Randle will be the main Red Zone Target for the Giants in 2014. Lining up opposite of Victor Cruz the Giants are expected to rely heavily on Randle with Nicks now out of the picture. Randle said he’s “very confident” he’ll score&hell...
