“Things might have been ugly on the field for the Giants in their season-opening loss to the Dallas Cowboys, but fantasy life was beautiful for Cruz. New York’s salsa-dancing slot receiver caught five passes for 118 yards and three touchdowns in the 36-31 defeat. Cruz should be plenty busy against the Broncos next week in what could be another high-scoring game.” -Marcas Grant, NFL.com
