Victor Cruz leads the way
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/14) Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz may not have reached the end zone Thursday, but he still played a big role.

Cruz led the Giants with 108 receiving yards during the contest. He was Eli Manning's big play threat, as three of his receptions resulted in at least 20 yard gains. Cruz was targeted 10 times, which tied for the most among all receivers. The team opted to go to the tight ends in the red zone, meaning Cruz had to take a backseat to some other players.

Cruz will look for more Week 5 against the Falcons. 

Receivers could go against the norm Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/14) Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start. 

Victor Cruz nets his first touchdown in 13 games
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer
(9/21/14) For at least one week, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz silenced his critics. The fifth-year receiver, who was plagued by drops in his first two games, posted a team-best 107 receiving yards in a 30-17 win Week 3 vs. Houston.

Cruz got off to a very promising start, as his first catch late in the first quarter went for 61 yards. Cruz took a slant pass and ran past a few defenders before finally being dragged down at the Texans' 15-yard line. 

Cruz then really put in work to get his first touchdown of the season and put the Giants up 7-0 in the second quarter. Cruz caught a short pass from Eli Manning, stopped on a dime, made a defender miss and then outran another defender to the end zone for a 26-yard touchdown with 3:21 left before halftime. It was his first touchdown in 13 games.

Cruz, who has 18 career 100-yard games (including playoffs), finished with five catches on six targets. The Giants are back in action Thursday at Washington.

Victor Cruz not a trustworthy Week 3 receiver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/14) 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.

Tom Coughlin wants more from Victor Cruz
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/17/14) 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.
