Fantasy Football - New York Giants Victor Cruz Out Week 1

The New York Giants will start the NFL season without WR Victor Cruz, who was hoping to make his return from a torn patellar tendon. This leaves Odell Beckham Jr. and Rueben Randle as Eli Manning's top targets on Sunday night at Jerry World, against the Dallas Cowboys.  Randle had a nice 2014 season, catching 71 passes for 938 yards.  However, he managed to catch just 3 touchdowns.

Randle caught 6 of his 9 targets against the Cowboys in Week 7, picking up 74 yards but just 3 receptions for 36 yards in the next matchup, Week

Without Cruz, Eli will focus on OBJ, Randle, TE Larry Donnell and his new weapon out of the backfield - Shane Vereen.  If Vereen and Manning click, it will be tough for any defense to force the Giants to punt.

The addition of Vereen, and the success of Andre Williams last year, Giants starting RB Rashad Jennings has lost a ton of fantasy football value.
