2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Victor was the most important player in the NFL last year (had the Pats won it all, Gronkowski probably would have been)


(+) One of the best route runners the league has today


(+) Victor didn't actually start until his 9th game of the year!


(+) 131 targets as a non-starter for half the year is impressive


(+) He was targeted eight or more times in 12 games!


(+) Had a whopping four 150+ yard games


(+) Manningham, the guy that WAS starting in front of him, is now on the ‘Niners


(+) Seems to have the flair for the amazing play, allowing him to hit pay-dirt often


(+) He's just getting started and COULD be the #1 for the Giants already


(+) 1,536 yards in his first pro season (injured all of his rookie campaign)


(+) Put up 10 games with 90+ yards


(+) Also had seven 100-yard games


(+) Of his nine regular season TDs, eight were from 24 yards or more


(–) A Super Bowl slump has the possibility of hitting a player like Cruz big time


(–) #80 is on every defense’s radar now


(–) Is Rueben Randle going to be better than Manningham? If so, Cruz’s targets could start to get eaten into


(–) Is he a one-hit wonder? (Doubtful, but possible)

Cruz Shortened

Victor Cruz season came to an end on Sunday Night Football as he tore his patellar tendon. The injury occurred as he was trying to leap for a pass that sailed over his head in the end zone on a fourth down play. He grabbed his knee as he landed on the ground, and was in obvious pain. Both the Eagles and Giants wished him the best, as he was carted off the field. This will be a difficult adjustment for the Giants, as they relied heavily on him as their number one receiver.

For an inside look on what the injury consists of, click on the link at the bottom.

Pyro's take: Ruben Randle will take over as the team's number one receiver, backed-up by rookie Odell Beckham. Cruz is safe to drop in most leagues.

Get someone the damn ball

Victor Cruz was upset with the play-calling in Monday Night's debacle against the Detroit Lions. Cruz has earned his stripes being the only pro-bowl wide receiver on the team, and he wasn't happy about the attention he received. "I think it is important. I think in order for us to be successful, there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction and other playmakers' directions, just like Rueben Randle as well, in my opinion," Cruz said. "That all comes with the continuity. That comes with getting the running game going. That comes with building what we want to build as the game continues. It is just a matter of once we find that rhythm early on, we can get into passing the ball and opening up the plays a little bit."

Pyro's take: When a team gets blown out 35-14 the blame needs to go somewhere. The Giants looked horrible in their new offense, I've seen better performances in OTA's. What was supposed to be a great offensive schematic for Eli Manning turned out to be a confused mess. Players running the wrong routes, not understanding the hand-signals, or not knowing what to do when Manning audibles.

The Giants would have hoped this worked itself out by now, and it hasn't. At this point I would hang onto the Giants on your roster, but I would think twice about playing them, until this is fixed, if it ever does get fixed.

Cruz explains poor preseason showing

Wide receiver Victor Cruz offered a reason why fans shouldn't be quite so concerned about the overall results in preseason games, to date.

"Mainly because we haven't shown a lot," Cruz said Monday after the first-team offense accounted for no points and six yards passing in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts. Part of that was because Cruz's sloppiness (he fumbled after catching a deep ball down the right sideline) wiped away a 51-yard reception.

"We haven't given a lot of plays, tipped our hands on a lot of things we're showing [in practice]. It's pretty base stuff [in preseason games]," Cruz said. "We just have to do a better job of executing."

Pyro's take: The Giants have been horrible on offense so far in the preseason, and this seems like a logical answer, but I am not 100% bought in. New York had the 28th best offense, based on total yards, last season, and until we see differently in actual games, it is hard to buy in and feel totally comfortable.

We do believe that the Giants are going to be a much improved offense this season, but by not seeing any positives so far into the preseason makes fantasy owners uneasy. There is a good chance that it may take a few weeks for the new offense to click, but luckily none of the Giants skill players, Cruz included, are being drafted as premier starters this year.

Cruz could be used like Randall Cobb in 2014

Victor Cruz is the finest playmaking receiver the Giants have. Now that he has a new offensive coordinator, he can’t help but wonder if he could take on a new role, too: running back.

That’s what Cruz light-heartedly suggested to the Daily News on Monday. The Giants star pondered Ben McAdoo’s offense, then thought about his coordinator’s background with the Green Bay Packers. Then, the shifty Cruz compared himself to speedy Packer receiver Randall Cobb.

“I do see myself as a Randall Cobb,” Cruz said at a Fuel Up to Play 60 event at PS 75 in Manhattan. “Hopefully I can sneak in that backfield for a couple plays. I don’t know how effective that will be. But we’ll definitely see where it takes us. But we’ll see. I’m excited to be all over the field this year.”

Pyro's take: Cruz is coming off his worst season with only 73 catches for 998 yards and four touchdowns. With McAdoo arriving from Green Bay, Victor should be utilized more in the offense.

That being said, Cobb has yet to have a 1,000 yard receiving season in Green Bay, so Cruz had better set his sights a little higher. The departure of Hakeem Nicks should help, but the emergence of Rueben Randle could eat into that potential. Cruz should still be a much better receiver in 2014, and a solid WR2.

Cruz should be happy about this match-up

While there are a number of weapons on the Giants offense, Cruz may present the greatest mismatch with his ability to make plays out of the slot. Defensive Coordinator John Pagano repeatedly stressed the need to bottle up the Giants’ playmaker:

“You have to be aware of number 80. He is somebody they like to feature. Anytime you get these slot receivers in the National Football League, especially someone like Victor Cruz, he’s very crafty. Inside, he is someone that you have to be aware of and accountable for. He is somebody they do a lot of different things with. Offensively, they do a great job of moving him around in different spots even though he is the slot receiver. They put him in different spots to give you different looks.”



Pyro's take: The Chargers are 29th in points against by wide receivers this season. Cruz has been very disappointing this season, but he can make up for it with a strong performance this week.

Cruz has been very cold as of late. He has only one 100-yard game in his last eight, and he has been held without a touchdown salsa dance. Cruz will not have to worry about being cold this week, as it should be just fine in San Diego.

If you have been riding Cruz all season, stick with him this week. This is the best chance he has had for a breakout game.

Victor Cruz is in a walking boot

The New York Giants are giving wide receiver Victor Cruz's bruised left heel a little extra medical attention.

The team's leading receiver the past two seasons, Cruz walked to a podium Tuesday using crutches and with his foot in a boot. It raised immediate concerns about the severity of his injury.

"It's all about just getting better at this point," said Cruz, who signed a $46 million contract extension in July. "I think I have a firm understanding of the offense, and me and Eli have an understanding of how he likes to hit me and things we do out there on the field. So I'm not too concerned about it.

"Obviously I'm a guy that loves to practice, loves to be out there. Just a short setback. And a time where -- you never want to have one -- but if there's a time to have one, it's now. So it's not bad."

Cruz bruised the heel Sunday while trying to catch a long pass from Manning on the opening series against the Indianapolis Colts. It was a jump ball type of play, and one of the defenders came down on his foot. It immediately went numb.

The Giants have told Cruz his status is day to day, but it looked more week to week with crutches and a boot.

Cruz, 26, hopes to shed the crutches soon. He is being treated with ice and medication to reduce the swelling. He added he doesn't think the injury will linger all season.

Pyro's take: Cruz does not seemed concerned about this injury, but anytime a player is in a walking boot, you have to be concerned a little. Cruz believes that he will be ready for the season opener, but likely will not play before that. Cruz is quite comfortable in this offense, and the lost time will not effect his rapport with Eli Manning.

Cruz is still a top ten wide receiver, and should be fine. If you are drafting this weekend, he might slip a little in drafts, which will be good as he should be just fine.

Victor Cruz does the salsa dance in first preseason game

Victor Cruz showed he is ready to live up to his contract with a dazzling 57-yard touchdown catch against the Steelers.

Pyro's take: Cruz is looking to have a rebound season after only having 1,092 yards in 2012. Cruz showed his potential with 1,536 yards in 2011 and is looking to regain that form this season. This catch against the Steelers was fantastic as he out ran the corner back and the safety and took it 57 yards to the house. Cruz is proving that he is worthy of top-10 consideration at the wide receiver position.

Cruz gets a long term contract

Victor Cruz signed a 6-year, $45.9 million deal, which locks him up as a Giant until 2018.

Pyro's take: This is great news for Dynasty owners of Cruz as well as owners who are looking to grab him in 2013. Cruz was seeking a deal worth 10+ million a season and settled for way less to stay a Giant until he turns 31 years old. This signals that he knows he is in the right offense for him and that he has a strong chemistry with Eli Manning and did not want to start over anywhere else. The doubt is now gone and Cruz just has to focus on football. Cruz will look regain the form he had in 2011 when he finished as the 3rd highest scoring receiver in fantasy.

Victor Cruz signs $2.879M RFA tender

Victor wants $8mil... the Giants don't want to pay him that much.

Pyro's take: Tom Condon, is looking more like a Trojan Condom at the moment.
