Beat: 100 catches possible for Victor Cruz in new offense - [Full Article]

Giants WR Victor Cruz in particular should thrive in this new system. He already looks dominant catching balls from Eli Manning at practice. He caught 80-plus passes in 2011 and 2012. He was on pace for 83 receptions before an injury cut last season short. It's not hard to envision 100 catches for Cruz in OC Ben McAdoo's scheme, where Cruz's ability to get in and out of cuts sharply will serve him well.

Fantasy Impact: 

Cruz was the #1 WR through the first four weeks thanks in large part to a 118-yard, three-TD game against the Cowboys in Week 1. (Cruz cracked the 100-yard mark twice more in the first month.) Unfortunately, his production fell off of a cliff in the final 12 games; Cruz was the #59 WR the rest of the way. The Giants’ offense should bounce back under new OC Ben McAdoo who plans to use Cruz in the Randall Cobb role in his version of the West Coast Offense.
