2016 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jul-27-2016 by Shawn Childs


Cruz suffered his second major injury in his five-year career in 2014 when he tore a patellar tendon in his right knee. The early reports suggested Victor would be ready for Week 1, but I had a tough time believing he will play at a high level early in the year. As it turns out, Victor never played a snap in 2015 as a result of a left calf issue that ended up needing surgery in mid-November. His value faded over the last ten games of 2013 when he caught 47 passes for 523 yards with no TDs on 79 targets. Cruz played well in two of his six games in 2014 (5/107/1 and 6/108), but he had delivered losing value in his other four games (12/122). In a way, the calf injury gave him a full offseason to recover from his previous knee issue. Even with six months of recovery, Cruz is still limited in the early OTAs. His past resume suggests upside, but his growing health issues make him a tough investment unless his price point is free. I need to see him in game action before thinking about drafting him.

2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1

18.08 Adam Ronis - Was sniped on free agent Anquan Boldin. Settled for Cruz, who is a major long shot.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
13.11 Scout Fantasy - Jack Delaney - It’s a long shot that Victor Cruz is productive this season, but he’s not going to hurt my team as a 13th-round pick if he is no longer Fantasy relevant. It will be great if he becomes relevant again, but he would be easy to drop if he wasn’t able to return to his old form.
