Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Week 4: Grab Giants' Victor Cruz

If you are looking for a wide receiver to add to your Fantasy Football roster for Week 4 of the NFL season, Victor Cruz of the New York Giants might be your.

Cruz had a breakout game last Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, catching three passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns. His touchdowns were on a 74-yard catch and run and a 28-yard reception where he outfought two Philadelphia defenders, including All-Pro cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Cruz started in place of Mario Manningham (concussion) against the Eagles. Even though Manningham is expected to play Sunday when the Giants face the Arizona Cardinals, there should be plenty of snaps for Cruz. The Giants lost slot receiver Brandon Stokley this week when he suffered a quadricep strain during practice, so Cruz figures to be on the field whenever the Giants utilize sets with three wide receivers.

Cruz's numberFire Projections are 2.68 catches, 40.23 yards and 0.02 TDs, for 5.21 fantasy points. To be honest, I think those might be low. Pick him up, there are snaps available for him and Giants' quarterback Eli Manning has been throwing the ball well.
