2013 Outlook: 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. 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.
2013 Outlook: A disastrous 2012 campaign has left Nicks' fantasy reputation in tatters. He struggled through 13 games, but his left knee was never right after Week 2 and required a scope this winter. Nicks has also battled foot and hamstring injuries in his four-year NFL career, and while he figures to come into training camp healthy, he's a hard man to trust. We all know what his size and open-field toughness can translate to: Nicks caught 11 TDs in '10 and Eli Manning loves to go down the field. There's top 10 upside here. But will Nicks ever play a full season at full strength?
2013 Outlook: Randle is probably a tick too slow to ever be an elite NFL wideout, but Giants coaches like his hands and his ability to fight off press coverage. He flashed a few times in his rookie season, but it was disappointing that Randle could never fully get in the mix with Hakeem Nicks so limited; this year, Domenik Hixon and Ramses Barden are gone, so the No. 3 WR job is Randle's for the taking. With his size and leaping prowess, this kid has Dwayne Bowe upside. This year, however, he'll continue to learn behind Nicks and Victor Cruz.
