Week 17 WR Rankings


Victor Cruz vs. Cowboys –

While fellow top receivers like Calvin Johnson, Jordy Nelson and Roddy White could fall victim to a short workweek because their teams are headed for the playoffs, second year standout Victor Cruz and the Giants will be fighting for their playoff lives, on Sunday Night against the Cowboys. While Cruz had a couple of average games against the Cowboys and Redskins in recent weeks, he came back with a huge performance against the Jets totaling 164 yards and a touchdown on a mire three receptions.

Once again, Cruz helped in creating his own luck, as he flashed his trademark reflexes after catching a routine first down reception, and quickly turned his head and hips up field, positioning himself to break tackles and run down the side line for a 99-yard touchdown. As I’ve pointed out repeatedly this year, Cruz’s quick movements can get him in trouble as at times, as he will turn his body up field (mainly taking his eyes off the football) before he’s hauled the football to his chest, but the upside of this, is his 99-yard touchdown, or his first big score of the year against the Eagles, week three.

While I’m concerned some of Cruz’s comments to the media at times, he’s clearly one of the bright young play makers in football and is a possible low end WR-1 next summer, if he should secure a starting job opposite Hakeem Nicks.

As for this week, Cruz is a must start WR-1 and is capable of going off for a huge game at any time. With everything on the line, don’t expect the Giants to take their foot off the peddle until the victory is official.
