Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Odell Beckham avoid PUP list - [Full Article]

Giants receivers Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham are not on PUP. Cruz passed the conditioning test less than 10 months after tearing the patellar tendon in his right knee. Beckham, who missed time with a hamstring injury this spring, did as well. Neither are going to start training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. That's good news. Both are expected to be on the practice field with their teammates on Friday. They may have their snaps limited, but at least they're cleared.

Fantasy Impact: 

Cruz tore his patellar tendon in mid-October, though recent reports have been unanimously positive. He's not going to get the same number of targets given Odell Beckham's emergence as a top-flight wideout. Cruz will likely play the Randall Cobb role in OC Ben McAdoo's offense, so there is some upside if he's fully healthy by Week 1. Hopefully the injury doesn’t rob him of the speed and quickness that makes him such a dangerous slot receiver.
