Huddle Up: At 30 years old, Cruz is over the hill and has not played a full season since 2012. Furthermore, he'll have Mike Glennon throwing to him. He may have more opportunity for playing time than in most places in Chicago's relatively weak wide receiver corps, but Cruz would likely be cemented on fantasy benches anyway.

Huddle Up: The Broncos have plenty of salary cap space, which apparently includes enough room for some risks. Cruz would certainly qualify as one, being someone who has looked like a much different player since tearing the patellar tendon in his knee in 2014. While Denver does have a need for a No. 3 receiver, the 30-year-old still has a long road ahead back towards fantasy relevance.

Huddle Up: Cruz tore a patellar tendon in 2014, and since then, he hasn't nearly been the same, which was very evident this past season as he registered a career-low 39.1 receiving yards per game over 15 contests. He'll likely get another shot with some receiver-needy club in training camp, but it would take a long road back for him to suddenly be fantasy relevant again.

Huddle Up: Cruz didn't do a whole lot for the Giants last season. Lack of production, injuries and age make this a logical move for the Giants. Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shephard are now at the helm of the Giants' receiving corps.

Huddle Up: Cruz showed some signs of life after two years of debilitating injuries. However, he didn't show the game-breaking ability he had before he tore the patellar tendon in his knee. His final line was 39-586-1, and he'll be 31 in November. He could still be worth a WR5 flyer if he landed in the right situation.

Huddle Up: Cruz is due a $1 million roster bonus on March 11, so that date could be one to remember in terms of his employment with the Giants. The odds are very strong he will be released sometime before then. Expect New York to address the position in the draft again this year after landing Sterling Shepard last spring.
