Victor Cruz receiving interest from Broncos

ESPN Broncos senior writer Jeff Legwold reports that the Denver Broncos have already expressed interest in free agent wide receiver Victor Cruz.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz was released by the Giants only two days ago, so Cruz should be feeling optimistic that a team is expressing interest in him so quickly. He has a lengthy lower body injury history and appeared to be sap of his explosiveness last season, so it's fair to wonder how much he could contribute with another team.

Victor Cruz cut by Giants

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports the New York Giants have released wide receiver Victor Cruz on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz, 30, has been cut by the Giants Monday. The injury-prone wideout attempted to rejuvenate his career last season, but he struggled on a Giants offense that features both Odell Beckham and Sterling Shepard ahead of him. If Cruz can continue to maintain his health, he'll likely sign an incentive based contract this offseason with a new club with the hopes of extending his career.

Victor Cruz could be released this offseason

James Kratch of reports "there's a very strong possibility" that New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz becomes a salary cap casualty this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

With Sterling Shepard taking over as the Giants' No. 2 receiver behind Odell Beckham, Cruz could be released in the offseason to open up salary cap space. Beat reporter James Kratch cites the veteran wideout's inability to play special teams as a reason for his possible release. If he is indeed cut, the Giants will save $7.5 million against the cap.

Victor Cruz wants to return with Giants

Victor Cruz told reporters that he hopes to return with the Giants for the 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz was a useful receiver, which in and of itself was an accomplishment considering his string of injuries. However, New York likely won't be able to justify his current salary, so he'll need to take a pay cut or will probably end up elsewhere. He wasn't extremely fantasy relevant this season outside of deeper leagues.

Victor Cruz with 30 yards receiving in Giants' loss to Packers

Victor Cruz had 30 yards receiving on three receptions in the Giants' 38-13 loss to Green Bay in the NFC Wild Card game. Cruz was targeted just four times by Eli Manning.

Fantasy Impact

Cruz, once again, was not a huge part of the Giants' offensive game plan on Sunday, despite being one of the more sure handed receiving options on the day. Cruz will hold no fantasy value in 2017 if he remains with the Giants, which is doubtful. Depending on where Cruz lands, he may have some WR3 appeal for 2017.
