Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position.

As of press time Cruz had yet to sign the one-year tender made by the Giants nor had he agreed to a long-term deal. The Giants want to pay Cruz like a No. 2 wide receiver while Cruz wants No. 1 type money. In 2011, Cruz had 82 receptions for 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns whereas in 2012, with Nicks hobbled Cruz caught 86 balls for 1,092 yards and 10 touchdowns. We agree with the Giants and predict a near-repeat of 2012 should Cruz decide to not holdout.
