2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Expected to be given his first extensive playing time and be utilized primarily as a slot receiver in 2011, Cruz burst onto the scene during a Week 3 road game against Philadelphia catching three passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns. By seasonís end, Cruz had supplanted Mario Manningham in the starting lineup and had amassed 82 receptions for 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns, finishing the year as the 4th ranked fantasy wide receiver. Those are lofty heights for a former undrafted free agent who had failed to catch a single pass during his first two years in the league. So, the question is whether Cruz can replicate his 2011 success in 2012? With no realistic threats to his playing time, Cruz has an opportunity to match his touchdown production from last season but the odds of him topping 1,500 yards again are remote. Cruz was a big play machine last year, using his speed and elusive to register several long touchdown passes including receptions of 99, 74, 74, 72 and 68 yards. Think thatís happening again? Dream on. While Cruz is unlikely to match his 2011 production, he should be in for another big year with the Giants continuing to be a pass first offense and with fellow starting wide receiver Hakeem Nicks unlikely to be 100% healthy by opening day after breaking his right foot in May. That should mean plenty of targets for Cruz and plenty of fantasy production in 2012. Add it all up and Cruz shapes up as a potential top five fantasy wide receiver but comes with more risk than any other player listed in the top 10 at his position.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Hakeem Nicks to sign with Giants     -- Tue Nov 17 11:40 am --

2009 first-rounder may see best chance to return to form
Mike Garafalo (@MikeGarafalo) on Twitter: "With Victor Cruz headed to IR, the Giants will be re-signing WR Hakeem Nicks, sources say. Here comes his best shot to recapture old form." (Twitter)

FF Today's Take: We don't expect Nicks to be a top play anytime soon, but if something should befall Odell Beckham, Jr. or the veteran shows signs of a resurgence, he could be relevant.
Injury Victor Cruz to undergo season-ending calf surgery     -- Mon Nov 16 4:50 pm --

Missed most of 2014 season with torn patellar tendon
Victor Cruz will not play this season. The Giants wideout, who missed a majority of the 2014 season with a torn patellar tendon, announced Monday that he was undergoing calf surgery. Before the 2015 campaign started, and even before the calf injury, we noted that the Cruz-Odell Beckham tag team this season was a pipe dream. A torn patellar tendon is a brutal, grueling injury that can have ripple effects throughout the lower body. While the Giants maintain that the two are not related, it's hard to imagine this calf injury surfacing out of thin air. (NFL.com)

FF Today's Take: Cruz was always a longshot to contribute this season given how few players have come anywhere close to their usual levels following patellar tendon tears. There is no more guaranteed money left on Cruz's contract, which makes it very possible for the Giants to part ways with him if they choose to do so. In the meantime, Dwayne Harris will occupy his usual spot in the slot and remain a decent WR4/WR5 option in fantasy leagues.
