New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz is officially listed as probable for the team's Week 10 matchup against the Oakland Raiders. Cruz is dealing with a neck injury that had him limited and donning a no-contact red jersey in practice on Thursday, but he was able to participate in full on Friday.
Cruz seems like a safe bet to play at this point. The no-contact jersey on Thursday seems like a precautionary move more than anything. He's caught 47 passes for 677 yards and four touchdowns this season. It's fortunate that the Giants are coming off a bye week, otherwise he might have missed time in Week 9. He caught seven passes for 86 yards in Week 8, when he sustained the injury.
Fantasy Impact: Cruz missing time would be big for the Giants, and big for fantasy owners. As it stands, he's likely to play, though owners should pay attention to the inactive lists on Sunday. He's a WR1 this week, especially with a matchup against the Raiders to look forward to. He's a must-start this week.
