Do I pick up Victor Cruz? (WHIR)

Postby GiantsFanSTL » Fri Nov 11, 2011 2:50 pm

Somebody just dropped Victor Cruz in one of my leagues. What are your thoughts, do I pick him up? I could really use the help at RB (Mendenhall will be on bye, too), but both my starting WRs, Marques Colston and Mike Wallace (PIT) will be on bye. I could use some combination of Manningham/Cruz/Heyward-Bey for a trade to get a RB after Colston & Wallace come back.

STARTERS
QB: Michael Vick
RB: Rashard Mendenhall
RB: Jonathan Stewart
RB/WR: Mario Manningham
WR: Marques Colston
WR: Mike Wallace (PIT)
TE: Aaron Hernandez
D/ST: Packers
K: Mason Crosby

BENCH
QB: Tim Tebow
RB: Brandon Jacobs
WR: Eric Decker
WR: Darrius Heyward-Bey
TE: Fred Davis
D/ST: Texans
K: Dan Bailey
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Others still available are Michael Crabtree, Denarius Moore, Antonio Brown, Early Doucet, Josh Cribbs, Steve Breaston, and others. I really need a RB though. :-{

I think you should definitely try to pick up either cruz or antonio brown. I think brown would be the best option but both are solid pickups though

I wanted to pick him up before, but like I said, I'm badly in need of a RB. Do you think Antonio Brown will keep playing over Hines Ward as opposed to Cruz loosing some action once Nicks is healthy again?

Brown will be on bye the same time as Wallace, so that would leave me to start a combination of Manningham, Decker, and Heyward-Bey (probably Manningham and Decker). Which do you think is the better of the two or will do better the rest of the season...Cruz or Manningham?

I think you need to get D.Moore. Week 11 Colston, Wallace, Manningham Cruz and Brown have bye week so you need some1 who can play that week.

Theres so much wr depth i think you can trade some1 as big as Colston for a solid rb

If you can, pick both Antonio Brown and Victor Cruz up. Heyward-Bey has lost alot of value, and Decker can either have a decent game or a bad one with Tebow at QB. Cruz has performed well even with Nicks in the lineup. Brown has gotten many more looks than Ward and he's finally started clicking with Ben. Moore is also another WR you could pick up, his value is extremely high right now with Jacoby Ford out and Palmer giving him the most looks.

If you wanna ship out a WR for a decent RB, I think these guys will be the best trade bait. And though Manningham is technically ahead of Cruz in the depth chart, he hasn't performed as such. So you might wanna keep Cruz around.

The Giants already had their bye in Week 7. Manningham and Cruz will be playing.

***NOTE: I picked up Cruz, dropped Bailey, and put Cruz in at flex over Manningham. Smart moves???

I already dropped Dan Bailey for Cruz. What do you think about starting Cruz over Manningham at the flex spot?

Solid move. Post FA RBs you have no depth. I'd cut Texans DST for a RB which you need bad! I'd hold onto DHB for one more week. He was emerging as the #1 WR then disappeared for a week. I like Moore and DHB out of their WR they need those two.

I picked up DHB a few weeks back because he was starting to produce. Now with Jacoby Ford questionable, I'm still going to hold on to DHB. And RBs was the other half of my question. I'm in big trouble. The most appealing free agent RBs are

Ben Tate (same bye week as Mendenhall though)
Delone Carter
Marion Barber
Maurice Morris
Donald Brown
Kendall Hunter
Javon Ringer
Isaac Redman
Keiland Williams
Bernard Scott
Dexter McCluster
