New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz said on Sunday that he was not frustrated by a lack of chances to make plays in the passing game. Cruz had three catches for 26 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals and dropped what would have been a 38-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
Cruz has had less than 70 yards in three straight games and Jenny Vrentas of The Newark Star-Ledger points out that the Giants have not scored a passing touchdown since Cruz broke free for a 77-yarder against the Redskins in Week 7. The Giants have a bye in Week 11.
Fantasy Impact: Plenty of fantasy owners have been frustrated with the Giants in recent weeks. It starts with Eli Manning and continues with Cruz to pretty much the rest of the offense. The bye week comes at a good time for New York, which needs to figure out its passing game.
Cruz remains a No. 1 fantasy option at wide receiver but that could change if the Giants don't fix things on offense.
