Keep an eye on his ankle injury, but he seems on track to start Week 1 without limitations and the Cowboys were just 16th against fantasy receivers last year.I think the Eagles secondary is one of the worst in the league and I think Garcon is going to show why on Monday Night. They gave up a league high 23 touchdowns to fantasy receivers last year.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
He has yet to miss a game in his career so I doubt he does this week. He's a top player in the Giants offense and I see this game scoring a lot of points. Hakeem Nicks hasn't looked very good this preseason so I'm hitching my ride to the Salsa Man.There is some worry that Washington will limit Robert Griffin's work, but the Eagles pass defense is so poor I think Garcon has an easy time of it even if he doesn't have a ton of targets.

Cruz has recorded back-to-back seasons with at least 80 receptions along with back-to-back seasons with at least 1,000 yards. View Cruz as a low-end No.1/high-end No.2 Fantasy WR heading into 2013 worth a pick starting in Round 4.Garcon turned it on when he finally came back healthy, he's my pick to grab a round earlier.  
Muntradamus
Beast Dome
Victor was the Stud of the Fantasy Football season the first half, but then Hakeem Nicks got healthy. When Hakeem was healthy, Eli seemed to be looking his way more often than Cruz. Victor let owners down in the Fantasy Playoffs with a combined 3 Standard Points combined in Week 15/16. Nicks is healthy heading into 2013.Garcon who looked to be the steal of the draft after his Huge Week 1, was never the same WR after the Toe injury. He is still not 100% confident in the injury, the Redskins signed Donte Stallworth and Devery Henderson. To go along with Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan. Fred Davis is also coming back. All of this adds up to a little bit too much inconsistency for 2013.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
The fact that Hakeem Nicks is a consistent injury risk boosts Cruz’s draft stock off the rip. We like Victor Cruz in 2013 and see him as New York’s top option.Garcon has yet to break the 1,000 yard mark in his 5 seasons in the NFL. His injuries have stabilized. Look for Garcon to flirt with a 1,000 yard season in 2013, should he remain healthy.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Dallas corners can be tough but Cruz still should be a top-15 performer to start 2013.Philly D is shaky so Garcon could easily hit on some big plays.  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
With his contract situation in the rearview mirror, Cruz should go right back out there and put up very solid WR2 numbers.
