Victor Cruz dropped several passes in Wednesday night's loss to the Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Eli Manning continued his trend of targeting Victor Cruz often against the Cowboys, but the third-year struggled throughout the night finishing with three drops. Cruz managed to hold onto six passes for 58 yards total.

Fantasy Impact: Owners were excited to see what Cruz would bring in 2012. Unfortunately the start of the year for the salsa-dancing celebrity didn't pan out like many had anticipated. Manning was in sync with Cruz on his throws. He just wasn't able to hold onto the ball in several easy situations. Cruz still appears to be a top target, but it's worth keeping an eye on his unsure hands for now.
