Fantasy Analysis | 1411069335
Victor Cruz not a trustworthy Week 3 receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Victor Cruz asked for and received more targets (10) in Week 2 against the Cardinals and he responded with another mediocre stat line of five catches for 60 yards, including three dropped passes.

He now has just seven catches for 84 yards this season and we're still waiting for our first salsa dance.

The Texans were beat up by James Jones last week at Oakland when he had nine catches for 112 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets, and Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson combined for 18 catches and 139 yards against Houston in Week 1.

But until Cruz starts to play like the receiver we know and love it's hard to trust him as anything more than a No. 3 receiver in deeper leagues.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Tom Coughlin wants more from Victor Cruz
by Larry Hartstein |

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he expects better play from receiver Victor Cruz, who had three drops in the Week 2 loss to the Cardinals. "He agreed with me and he's working toward doing something about that," Coughlin said of his meeting with Cruz.

The Giants host Houston on Sunday. Cruz has seven catches for 84 yards this season and has not scored a touchdown in 12 straight games.

Victor Cruz now without a touchdown in 12 straight games
by Michael Hurcomb |

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz had more of an impact on offense Week 2 against the Cardinals after a disappointing two-catch, 24-yard outing in the season opener. However, he still left some plays on the field during a 25-14 loss Sunday.

Cruz was pretty non-existent in the passing game early Week 2. His first intended pass on the opening drive was intercepted, and he didn't get his first catch until there was less than 4 minutes left in the second half. But he would have three catches on his team's final drive before halftime.

Cruz was targeted a team-high 10 times Sunday, included six in the second half. He was even targeted on a 26-yard pass into the end zone, but he didn't get a chance to make the play as Patrick Peterson was called for pass interference, which set up a 1-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Fells.

Unfortunately, Cruz had three unofficial drops in the second half, which could have resulted in three first-down catches had he made the plays. He finished with five catches for 60 yards, which included a long reception of 27 yards.

Cruz's scoreless streak has reached 12 games dating back to last season. The Giants are back in action Week 3 against Houston.

Victor Cruz says he needs more opportunities
by Larry Hartstein |

Giants receiver Victor Cruz was not involved in the offense early in Monday's 35-14 loss to the Lions. He finished with six targets, catching two passes for 24 yards.

"In order for us to be successful, I think there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction," Cruz told the New York Daily News.

Victor Cruz does little in Week 1 defeat
by Igor Mello |

Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz wasn't much of a factor in a Week 1 loss to the Lions at Ford Field.

Cruz was held without a target in the first quarter and finished the first half with one catch for 4 yards and two targets. He came down with a 20-yard grab in traffic in the third quarter for his only reception of the second half. He was targeted six times and finished with two catches for 24 yards in a 35-14 defeat.

Cruz will be seeking more looks come Week 2 at home against Arizona. 415 of his 998 receiving yards came at home last season. He hasn't scored at MetLife Stadium since Week 17 of the 2012 season.
