New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz hasn't shown too many ill effects from his preseason injury, starting off the season with two 100-yard games, the second coming against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Cruz had 118 receiving yards for the second-straight week and caught eight passes in the process. After a three-touchdown game against the Cowboys to open the season, Cruz was kept off the scoreboard in Week 2.
Fantasy spin: The Giants haven't had much success running the football in the first two weeks of the season, which has opened the door for a lot of opportunities in the passing game. New York may be 0-2 to start the season, but the added passing attempts have made Cruz a fantasy stud through two weeks.
The Giants also have both Cruz and Nicks healthy, which hasn't happened often over the last few years. That has benefited Cruz quite a bit. He's found more room to operate and hasn't seen much of a decrease in targets.
