Victor Cruz started off the season being criticized for dropping several passes in Week 1, but all that was forgotten when he caught 11 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown against the Buccaneers. His 80-yard score in the fourth quarter capped off one of the most impressive performances of his career.
Fantasy Impact: Eli Manning threw for 510 yards against Tampa Bay, divvying up the majority of his targets between Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. Both stud receivers finished with double-digit receptions and close two 200 yards receiving. It's tough to deny a performance like that, let alone two. The Giants started off the seasons struggling on offense, but this is exactly what they needed to boost their confidence in 2012.
