Victor Cruz, WR, New York Giants (RFA)
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Victor Cruz took a chance last year. He had an opportunity to sign a multi-year contract last year, but he decided to hold out a year to hit restricted free agency and nab a bigger paycheck. While he didn’t necessarily duplicate his his second-year numbers last season thanks to an insane yards per catch average in 2011-12, he still was very productive. He ended up hauling in 86 catches for 1092 yards and 10 touchdowns. The only numbers that didn’t line up were his yards per catch average, but that was due to him playing in the slot more often than anything.
Now, Cruz is indeed a restricted free agent, but the Giants aren’t in much danger losing him. They are going to do one of two things, resign him to a multi-year contract or match an offer that another team decides to offer him. In other words, I wouldn’t worry about him being in anoth...
