GIANTS FANTASY RANKINGS: WEEK 1

Victor Cruz

The NFL season kicks off Thursday night when the Ravens travel to Sports Authority Field in Denver to take on the Broncos. And with that, a new season of fantasy football begins.

Victor Cruz is the highest-ranked Giant entering the first week of the season, according to ESPN, CBS, Yahoo! and Fox, coming in at an average ranking of No. 12. Cruz is ranked as high as No. 8 by Yahoo! and as low as No. 13 by ESPN and Fox.

“Cruz consolidated his breakout season in 2011 with a not-quite-as-good ’12, but he established his bona fides as an every-season fantasy threat,” ESPN wrote in their fantasy football preview. “With Mario Manningham gone from Gotham and Hakeem Nicks battling a knee injury all year, Cruz was New York’s only consistent WR threat. He had to shoulder more possession routes and fewer seam routes, and as a result his big plays diminished; Cruz went from a league-high 17 plays of 25-plus yards two years ago to 10 such plays in ’12. He was actually on pace for a phenomenal campaign through seven weeks but ran out of gas as Eli Manning slumped. If Nicks can get healthy, Cruz’s workload might drop a bit, but that might help his big-play numbers return.”

Despite suffering a heel contusion in the Giants second preseason game against the Colts, Cruz expects to play Sunday against the division rival Cowboys.

Quarterback Eli Manning (14), tight end Brandon Myers (14) and kicker Josh Brown (15)  are also ranked in the top half of the league at their respective positions.

Here’s a look at where the all of the Giants players are ranked heading into Week 1:
