Victor Cruz wants to be used like Randall Cobb
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Giants receiver Victor Cruz hopes new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, who came over from the Packers, uses him like Green Bay's Randall Cobb, reports the New York Daily News.

“I do see myself as a Randall Cobb,” Cruz told the paper. “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. ... I’m excited to be all over the field this year.”

Cruz has one career carry for three yards.

Victor Cruz says he wants Hakeem Nicks back
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Victor Cruz said he "selfishly" wants Hakeem Nicks to stay with the Giants

Speaking at a fundraiser, Cruz told the Newark Star-Ledger that Nicks could be too expensive for the Giants to retain but if the stars aligned, he'd love to have him back. In fact, he's told Nicks exactly that. 

"I have (asked him to stay)," Cruz said. "Selfishly, I would love for him to stay."

The paper made a note that Cruz was double-teamed more often this year because of Nicks' ineffective play. Nicks had a hard time separating from defensive backs and couldn't win jump balls. Nicks also had a hard time around the end zone as he went without scoring a touchdown all season.

Victor Cruz likes new coordinator's up-tempo approach
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Giants offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo promises the team will play with a fast tempo, and that's music to the ears of receiver Victor Cruz.

“I’m for all [going] up-tempo, getting a lot of catches, making a lot of plays,” Cruz told the New York Post. “That’s what I want to do — that’s kind of right up my alley. I’m excited to hear that, and I’m excited to get in there and learn the offense and get it going.”

Giants' hiring of McAdoo could make passing game re-emerge
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Giants' hiring of Bob McAdoo as offensive coordinator signals a big change in how the offense will operate. ESPN's Dan Graziano had a great breakdown of what to expect from the new scheme in New York. 

McAdoo is expected to run a West Coast offense with zone-read principles. It means fewer deep passes and a more controlled, methodical approach but it also means letting your key receivers make plays after the quarterback goes through his reads quickly. That should pop open the door for Victor Cruz to be a factor again, make Rueben Randle a decent regular in the offense and potentially make Jerrel Jernigan a key contributor (this is assuming Hakeem Nicks isn't back with the team). All of that, in turn, would help prop up Eli Manning's stats.

It's something to watch this offseason as pretty much every Giants player will wind up being a sleeper in drafts this summer.
