Victor Cruz puts in another mediocre fantasy outing

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants look terrible, and their star receive isn't seeing as much action. We break down the fantasy implications.

For the second week in a row, New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz failed to find the end zone and finished with a mediocre stat line. Cruz caught four passes for 68 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears.

The Giants ran the ball 26 times, clearly making an effort to keep their game plan balanced. However, Eli Manning continues to struggle, and he's affecting the value of those players around him.

Fantasy impact: After going off for 10 catches in Week 4, Cruz has been quiet over the last two weeks. The Giants in general aren't much to look at, but Cruz is normally a bright spot on the offensive side of the ball. He'll get back to that status soon.

New York faces Minnesota next week. Cruz should be able to bounce back, and he'll be a top 10 receiver in the weekly rankings regardless of the last two performances.
