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 receives PRP injection
No timetable for return
By: John Canario | Fri Oct 2, 7:20 pm

New York Giants
Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz had a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection Thursday in his injured left calf. PRP is supposed to promote healing in the affected area. The procedure occurred at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. "Hopefully it's able to make me feel better, and hopefully advance the recovery process in any way, shape, or form," Cruz said. Cruz aggravated a calf strain Wednesday in his first practice back. He lasted three plays after originally hurting the calf last month, admittedly a result of overcompensation following a serious knee injury he suffered last year. The MRI showed that the most recent aggravation of the calf isn't anywhere near as severe as the original injury, according to Cruz. He has yet to appear in a game, preseason or regular season. There remains no timetable for his return, but it does not appear it's on the horizon. Cruz will shut it down at least through this weekend as a result of the procedure. He will be evaluated Monday before a plan is devised. (

FFToday's Take: Cruz probably doesn't even deserve a bench spot at this point. He appears to be a ways away from returning, and Rueben Randle has shown that he is a more than capable WR2 for the Giants.

Injury Victor Cruz has setback with calf injury
Leaves practice Wednesday

TC on Victor Cruz: "Victor came out and tried to do individuals. He felt the calf again and that's all he did." (New York Giants on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There was optimism that Cruz (calf) would play this week but the chances of that happening are slim to none after Cruz left practice today. Cruz owners should make other plans for Week 4.

Injury Giants rule DRC and Victor Cruz out
New York thin in the secondary
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Sep 23, 4:20 pm

New York Giants
The New York Giants will be without top cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie for Thursday night's game against Washington, and wide receiver Victor Cruz will have to wait at least one more week for his return to the field. (

FFToday's Take: The injury to Dominick Rodgers-Cromartie leaves a defense that has been shredded the past two weeks with huge holes to fill in the secondary. Look for Kirk Cousins to test the Giants pass defense with Jordan Reed, Pierre Garcon and company on Thursday night. Additionally, New York released Preston Parker this week and Victor Cruz remains sidelined leaving the door wide open for Rueben Randle to stake his claim in the passing offense behind Odell Beckham Jr.

Injury Victor Cruz ruled out Sunday vs Falcons
Rueben Randle will again be Giants WR2
By: John Canario | Fri Sep 18, 4:25 pm

New York Giants
Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz (calf) will not play Sunday against Atlanta, reports Tom Rock of Newsday. Cruz has yet to practice through the first two weeks of the season, with recent claims suggesting he might not be ready until Week 4. Rueben Randle will start across from Odell Beckham against the Falcons, leaving Preston Parker as the No. 3 wide receiver. (CBS Sports)

FFToday's Take: Randle should be the greatest beneficiary while Cruz remains out, though he frustratingly mustered just 23 yards on three receptions in the Giants' loss to the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Expect an improvement this week, facing a porous Falcons' defense that gave up 336 yards in week one. Randle is a decent WR3 while Cruz is out.

Injury Victor Cruz to miss practice Thursday
Gaints receiver likely out for Week 1

Once again, Giants WR Victor Cruz will not practice today. (Dan Graziano on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Does everyone recall the training camp speculation and analysis that Cruz would be ready and was on track for Week 1? As we've discussed numerous times over the summer, Cruz's knee injury was nasty and difficult to make a quick recovery from. Hopefully you avoided him at his 7th round ADP. He'll likely be inactive this week.

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." (

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.
