He still has fantasy WR1 upside, yet he is falling so far in drafts. Take advantage!
 
  
Raju Byfield

Still a good bet for WR1 numbers despite who is throwing him the ball
Will push for 90+ receptions
  
Chet Gresham

AJ isn't dead yet as shown by his 109 receptions last season. I don't think Ryan Fitzpatrick is any worse than what the Texans had last season and AJ should be able to remain the focal point of the passing game.
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.
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Owners will take his 93 yards in W1 w/ new QB Fitzpatrick, but no red zone targets
Going to be a high-volume target as NYG will move him around, but Eli and the pass game still look terrible.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Trade talk and no QB is starting to kill his upside.
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.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Still an elite talent, but his situation is less than ideal.
Has a strong track record, and Giants' new offense should suit him.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Andre Johnson finally reported to camp, only to suffer a minor hamstring injury. He should be ready fro Week 1. He had another 109 reception and 1,407 yard season, but he had only five receiving touchdowns on the season. At 33-years old, he is a strong WR2 in fantasy, due to low touchdown numbers and bad quarterback play.
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.

Target monster an elite option in PPR formats.
New offensive scheme yet to click, O-line/Manning not looking much better thus far.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
A new QB in Houston will make a huge difference in Johnson's numbers and his attitude. Expect Johnson to have a solid 2014 year.
Eli Manning's #1 target and should continue to put up solid weekly numbers.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
Gary Kubiak is out, Bill O’Brien is in. Remember in Week 9 last season when Andre Johnson scored his first TD of the season? Remember Weeks 9 and 10 were the only 2 weeks Andre 3000 scored TD’s on the season? Instead of Kubiak’s heavy featured run scheme where he didn’t utilize Andre in the Red Zone, Bill O’Brien will. In the Red Zone Kubiak only featured TE’s and RB’s; this will be different with new coach Bill O’Brien. At Penn State, O’Brien ran a pro styled offense depending on the opponents strength. With Houston’s easy pass schedule this season, O’Brien will get his Playmaker the ball. With Ryan Fitzpatrick in at QB Andre Johnson will continue to see a ton of targets. His deep ball numbers may actually be down a little, but a 33 year old Andre Johnson will again put up WR2 Fantasy numbers, if healthy for an entire season.
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.

Johnson will turn 33 years old in July, but continues to play at an elite level. Despite suffering through poor quarterback play last season, he ranked 3rd in catches (109), 7th in yards (1407), 6th in catches of 20+ yards (20) and 2nd in catches for a first down (69).
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.
