Fantasy Football 2012 Rankings: New York Giants Wide Receiver Victor Cruz
It’s safe to say Victor Cruz went undrafted in most leagues last year, but things are different one year later heading into the fantasy football 2012 season as the New York Giants wideout will be a popular pick in most leagues.
All eyes will be focused on the third-year wideout during the 2012 season to see whether or not he avoids the label of being a one-hit wonder in 2012. Last season, Cruz took the NFL world by storm after catching 82 passes for 1,536 yards to go along with nine touchdowns–which is impressive for a player who failed to make a single reception in three games as a rookie in 2010.
From a fantasy perspective, Cruz will most likely fall in the third or fourth rounds in most leagues considering he still has a lot to prove–even if he did rank third in the NFL last season in receiving yards despite only starting seven games. With Mario Manningham–who signed with the San Francisco 49ers this offseason–out of the picture, Cruz will obviously be a starter for the Giants in 2012 and has the opportunity to be part of one of the league’s best wide-receiving duos playing alongside Hakeem Nicks.
Plus, having Eli Manning at quarterback helps his case now that nobody is questioning whether or not the two-time Super Bowl MVP is worthy of being placed in the category of being an elite quarterback. With the type of work Cruz has been putting in during the offseason, there’s no reason why he shouldn’t put up big numbers once again in 2012.
