Victor Cruz salsa danced his way to three TDs against the Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz did lots of salsa dancing in Week 5. Against the Cleveland Browns, Cruz had five catches for 50 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Giants to a big 41-27 victory over the Browns.

Fantasy Impact: Cruz had eight targets on the day, but outside the three scores he was relatively quiet as Eli Manning spread the ball out to seven different receivers and got big games out of Reuben Randle and Domenik Hixon. Still, TDs are TDs, so there's not much to complain about here. Cruz now has five scores on the year and is on pace for nearly 120 receptions and around 1,300 yards. He's a WR1 play every week and should be starting in all leagues.
