Wild Card Round at Green Bay
Victor Cruz had some ups and downs this year as the third option in the Giants’ receiving corps, but ultimately didn’t make a huge fantasy impact as he got buried behind Odell Beckham Jr. and rookie Sterling Shepard on the depth chart. Cruz seems past the point of being a top-level fantasy WR following two injury-plagued seasons, but it’s good to see him healthy and with an active role in the passing game. He has a little upside as a deep sleeper this week against the Packers, who have allowed the second most passing yards to opposing teams this season. Expect the Giants to the throw the ball a lot in what could become a shootout. Cruz is very risky, but classifies as a low-end bargain option if you’re in a league where you have to invest heavily in star players.
