2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
A season-ending knee injury limited Cruz to six games in 2014, opening the door for Odell Beckham Jr. to explode as the top receiving threat for Eli Manning in the passing game. Although Cruz has maintained throughout the offseason that he will avoid the PUP list and be able to play Week one, kneecap and patellar injuries like the one he sustained tend to limit players about a full calendar year. It also remains to be seen if the knee injury will have lingering effects on Cruz, a player who became to prominence because of his shifty route running and explosive plays. He’s avoided the PUP list at the outset of training camp which is a good sign but keep a close eye on his usage and mobility during pre-season contests. Being ready for Week 1 and being effective Week 1 are two different things.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Victor Cruz uncertain for Week 1
Giants WR still nursing calf strain
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 1, 10:40 am

New York Giants
Victor Cruz maintained that it’s “still the goal” to be on the field Week 1, but left the door open for his nagging calf to keep him out in the opener. (New York Daily News)

FFToday's Take: This is bad news for Cruz owners. Right now, nobody knows when they’ll see the Giants star on the field again. Cruz is trying to come back from last year’s torn patellar tendon in his right knee, and has been dealing with the calf injury since mid-August, when he still hoped to playing in multiple preseason games. He's an iffy fantasy option heading into 2015, and fellow WR Rueben Randle seems like the safer bet for consistent numbers.


Victor Cruz working way back
Wide receiver participates in individual drills
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Aug 12, 3:44 pm

New York Giants
Receiver Victor Cruz participated in individual drills but spent team drills on the sideline. He's coming back from a torn patellar tendon suffered last October, and the Giants are being cautious. "It's tough, but you have to understand the bigger picture," Cruz said. "Coach doesn't want anything crazy to happen, and you have to understand that." (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: It looks like Cruz may not play in the team's first preseason game if the Giants play it cautious with their recovering receiver. With Odell Beckham Jr. taking over as the team's top option, Cruz will be brought along slowly. If he continues to progress from week to week, this passing attack could make him a top thirty fantasy receiver in 2015.


Injury Cruz thinks he'll avoid PUP list to start camp
"I don’t think PUP will be an option"
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 7, 3:41 pm

New York Giants
Victor Cruz has maintained all offseason that he expects to be ready to go for training camp after tearing his patellar tendon last season and said on Tuesday that everyone with a say in the matter also feels confident that Cruz will avoid the physically unable to perform list when the team reports to training camp. (ProFootballTalk)

FFToday's Take: Cruz's injury is a nasty one for an athlete, especially a wide receiver and it will be a nice milestone if he's able to avoid the PUP list. Ultimately how he performs in camp will give us a better idea of his availability in Week 1.


Injury Cruz expected to be limited at the start of camp
Believes he'll be "around 100 percent" in late July/early August
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 18, 6:20 pm

New York Giants
Victor Cruz (patellar tear) agrees with Giants HC Tom Coughlin; he expects to be cleared for limited practice at start of training camp. (Paul Schwartz on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: If ever there was a report that should draw an eyebrow raise or eye-roll, this is that one. Patellar tears are arguably the most difficult injuries for a football player to come back from, so the notion that Cruz is going to be "around 100 percent" (as he told the New York Daily News earlier Thursday) less than a year after the injury is highly improbable. It is unlikely Cruz is going to be anything better than a fantasy WR4 in 2015.


Rueben Randle poised for big year?
Eli believes WR can be a "dominant" player
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 11, 4:30 pm

New York Giants
A year ago, before (Rueben Randle) finished with a flourish, he was benched for the first quarter of two games. “It was a personal issue,” Randle said. “It just caused me to be late here a couple of times. It’s over with now. I’m past it. At one time in the season people thought me and Coach [Coughlin] had a beef going on, which is not the case.” “I think Rueben’ll have a big year,” Eli Manning said. “I think Rueben can be a great receiver, a dominant receiver. I think he has it in him. You’ve definitely seen him from Day 1 to Day Now, just the maturity level is definitely improved, he’s all in, he’s been here working, he’s been here off days, and so I've been impressed with his commitment.” (New York Post)

FFToday's Take: This has the makings of a preseason fluff piece, but it would be a mistake to discount a player that went for 6-132-1 and 6-158 over the final two games of last season. With Odell Beckham Jr. likely to command double teams this year and Victor Cruz no sure thing to be what he once was, Randle could be ready to fulfill the promise that many owners believed he was going to deliver on a year or two ago.
