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.
Garcon's 2nd season in Washington saw him set a franchise record with 113 receptions for 1,346 yards and 5 touchdowns. Garcon is not likely to see the 182 targets he registered in 2013, but better chemistry with his star quarterback should mitigate the loss in targets.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.
Garcon had the receptions (113) and yards (1,346) to be a Top 10 fantasy receiver. He needs to improve on his five touchdowns if he is going to be an elite fantasy option. WR DeSean Jackson should help take pressure off Garcon. It may decrease his receptions, but could also increase his YPC and touchdowns.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
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.
Led the NFL last season with 113 Receptions. Garcon also netted 1346 Receiving Yards and only 5 TDs. The acquisition of DeSean Jackson will mean less double coverage in 2014 for Garcon, but will also mean that there are more mouths to feed in DC. The Washington Post recently reported that Jackson will take over the “Z” which was the position of A.J. Green last season in Jay Gruden’s Cincinnati Offense with Garcon handling the “X” at WR. Ultimately, we feel that Garcon will see a bump in Yards Per Reception, but a major reduction in his 182 Targets. However, we fully expect a regression in Receptions in 2014 and we don’t like him at his current ADP.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
New offensive scheme yet to click, O-line/Manning not looking much better thus far.
Receptions may decline some, but he will be more productive with DJax drawing coverage.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
The targets will come down to be certain, but Garcon was dominant with no legitimate threat opposite him. Team projects "he'll see more single coverage in first eight games than he has his entire Washington career."
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
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.
Garcon won't see the percentage of targets he had last season, but there's no doubting that RG3 feels very comfortable with him. Desean Jackson will take some pressure off him and some targets, but Jay Gruden's offense should help the passing game, along with a healthy RG3.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
Eli Manning's #1 target and should continue to put up solid weekly numbers.
Garcon has proven that he is an elite WR, but his lack of TD's in 2013 is a bit of a concern.
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Health is an issue and had down 2013. Could be had at awesome value.
He's a burner who turned into a PPR demon last year. That won't stick but he's still going to be a low-end WR1 or elite WR2.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
 
The addition of DeSean Jackson from Philadelphia will vulture some of Garson's fantasy value in 2014.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Has a strong track record, and Giants' new offense should suit him.
A decline in volume is inevitable, but he's still essential to Skins' offense.

Look for the Giants offense to rebound this year, and Cruz will be a big benificiary of this.
 
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Going to be a high-volume target as NYG will move him around, but Eli and the pass game still look terrible.
Target hog in '13 had healthy 12 looks in W1, but an Edelman like 10/77 line - important takeaway is that opportunities are still plentiful
  
Raju Byfield
Win My Fantasy League
Will push for 90+ receptions
Will take a step back with DeSean Jackson in town to steal targets
