Can Victor Cruz Return and is he Worth the Risk?
From Newark Star-Ledger:
“We got [to cutting],” Cruz said Tuesday night prior to the 22nd annual United Way of New York City Gridiron Gala at the Hilton in Manhattan. “We started running some intermediate routes on air and stuff like that. It’s feeling good. It’s feeling good so far. I think I’m 75-80 percent right now. It’s just a matter of building it.”
The Giants seem mostly positive about Victor Cruz and his rehabilitation process. Cruz thinks he’s sitting at 75-80 percent right now. On the other hand:
Even at advanced ages, I think Anquan Boldin & Steve Smith Sr. catch 80+ balls p easily this year, and really think Dwayne Bowe might too.

After Rotoworld’s Evan Silva tweeted this earlier this morning it got me thinking about the MFL10 ADP of these players.
Dr. Budoff does a great job of going in-depth with Cruz’s injury. The nature of Cruz’s injury has me concerned and, given that he’s also overshadowed by Odell Beckham Jr., I’m going to be avoiding him this year. The safer play would be to draft the elderly gentlemen Boldin and Smith at the same opportunity cost for what I believe would be safer production. They’re not flashy, but they get the job done. While some players may just be hunting for the “boom or bust” player, there’s something to be said for consistency in MFL10s as well.
