Giants WR Victor Cruz: new offense is 'pass happy'

Cruz says that Giant's offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's new offense is "definitely a little bit more pass happy than what we've had in the past." McAdoo is in the midst of installing an up-temp, West Coast offense, one in which Cruz says he believes he can catch 100 balls. "If I get 100, hopefully I can get around 1,500 yards," Cruz said. The last time Cruz approached those numbers was his rookie 2011 season, in which he caught 82 balls for 1,536 yards.

Fantasy Analysis:

McAdoo's scheme will apparently make the Giants a pass-focused team, which should help Cruz' statistical figures. Still, 100 catches and 1,500 yards seems a little outlandish. Cruz has averaged 1,000 yards and 7 touchdowns the last two seasons, and that's about what should be expected of him this year as well, which would put him at low-end WR2 status. And given Giants QB Eli Manning's recent comments that he doesn't feel totally comfortable in the new system, it's clear that there's still a learning curve for the Giants to overcome before things start clicking. Cruz is currently ranked 23rd among receivers.
