Update August 31, 2013 - Michael Cox had already impressed enough to make the Giants roster, but with Andre Brown out for the first part of the season, look for Cox to get some more touches and don't be surprised if he makes the most of them. The Giants are high on his upside.

Update September 19 -2013 - Brandon Jacobs was added last week, but is nothing more than a short yardage guy.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

Update (8-29): Giants RB Andre Brown fractured his leg against New England on Thursday during the Giants' final preseason game. No immediate word on any timeframe, but expect Brown to miss a good chunk of the season; following the game he said the injury is "not as serious as it was last year." Scott and Ryan Torian are now the primary backups. Neither is handcuff worthy until further notice.

After coming out of nowhere in 2011 to bust out with 82 receptions for 1536 yards and 9 touchdowns, Cruz came back to earth slightly in 2012 raising his receptions (85) and touchdowns (10), but "only" had 1092 yards. The biggest question mark regarding Cruz is his contract talks. Everyone is saying the right things and hopefully by the time training camp starts Cruz will be locked into a long term contract. As long as Cruz is back in camp he should considered a stud and drafted accordingly.

Injury Status: Out - Knee

Nicks battled through multiple injuries in 2012 to play in parts of 2013, but he was never fully healthy and it showed. He wasn't 100% all year and put up the worst numbers of his short career. Nicks has worked hard in the off season to go into 2013 healthy and so far he's looking good. Look for Nicks to go back to his old ways and you can expect at least 75 receptions for at least 1000 yards and at least 8 touchdowns. If he can somehow stay healthy all year, expect him to surpass all those projections with ease and be a #1 receiver on someone's fantasy team.

Update 10-25-2013 - Randle is doing a very good job as the #3 receiver for the Giants. He hasnt been consistent enough to be a lock start every week but with all the bye weeks and injuries, he is worth a look, especially in good matchups

Update August 7, 2013 - So far this off season and during training camp the reviews about Randle have been very good. With the injury history the Giants receivers have, Randle is looking more and more like a worthy draft pick, especially in leagues where you start 2+ receivers and flex and/or dynasty leagues

Randle had a very quiet rookie season playing behind Nicks, Cruz and even the departed Domenik Hixon. With Hixon gone, look for Randle to move into the #3 spot on the depth chart; and with the Giants going to 3 WRs so often, look for Randle to get a lot more opportunities to become a factor in the Giants' offense this season. With Nicks' injury history and Eli Manning's knack for making anyone who lines up at receiver successful, Randle is definitely someone to keep an eye on.
