 Dropping due to injury concerns but laden with WR2 potential  
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.Chances of Holmes play this season. Slim. Do not draft Santonio and just wait for the news. Even when healthy, it could be a very rough year for the Jets.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Dallas corners can be tough but Cruz still should be a top-15 performer to start 2013.   
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
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.   
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.   
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.   
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
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.   
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.
