Victor Cruz was held to five catches for 48 yards as the Giants fell to 0-5 against the Eagles on Sunday afternoon. Cruz was targeted 12 times, but was contained well by Brandon Boykin for most of the game. Cruz tied Rueben Randle in targets, but both Randle and Hakeem Nicks outperformed Cruz for the day.
Fantasy impact: It was simply a poor performance in an otherwise stellar 2013 fantasy season for Cruz, who was the leading fantasy receiver in most formats until Week 5. Philadelphia has given up the most fantasy points to wide receivers through four weeks, which makes Cruz's output all the more disappointing. There's simply no reason to expect Cruz to struggle consistently. Fantasy owners will continue starting Cruz as an top-tier WR1 as the Giants prepare for the Bears at Soldier Field on a short week.
