Just 1% of our experts believe Cruz is worth drafting above his ADP. In fact, Cruz might not make the team, let alone be a fantasy relevant asset. At this point in New York, Sterling Shepard is the wingman to Odell Beckham, and Cruz isn't even on the radar.

Victor Cruz played for the first time since 2014, catching one pass for four yards. Cruz missed all last season with a calf injury and missed the first two pre-season games with a groin injury.

Fantasy Impact: Cruz is a boom or bust type player this season. If he can recapture the form he displayed before he hurt his knee, he would be a steal as his ADP. On the other side of the coin, he has not shown the ability to even stay on the field for two years. Let's think of him as a sleeper that may be worth a late round flyer.

Fantasy Impact: A groin injury has impacted Cruz's ability to practice and kept him sidelined during the Giants' first two preseason contests. With back-to-back full practices Tuesday and Wednesday, though, the team's training staff is likely confident that the oft-injured wideout can handle the rigors of game action for the first time since October of 2014.

Cruz hasn't had any setbacks since starting training camp, which is a miracle in itself. Sterling Shepard appears to be ahead of him, so that puts Cruz in a tough fantasy position. If he can stay healthy and someone ahead of him is hurt, the Giants' offense is good enough to be grabbing Cruz as fast as you can
