Rueben Randle not overshadowed for once


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1:08 am ET) Since the emergence of rookie Odell Beckham in Week 9, and especially since his even bigger emergence in Week 12, wide receiver Rueben Randle has been an afterthought in the Giants passing game, averaging 2.3 catches for 31.8 yards in the four games leading up to Week 16 at St. Louis. But quarterback Eli Manning finally had enough yards to go around in that one, delivering Beckham his usual eight grabs for 148 yards and still finding Randle on six passes for 132 yards.

Randle even caught a touchdown pass, his first since Week 5. Of course, Beckham caught two and is now up to eight in his last five games, averaging 9.6 catches for 131.4 yards during that stretch.

You see the problem here, don't you? Manning was able to sustain both Beckham and Randle in this one, but that's only because he threw for a season-high 391 yards. If he regresses to a more modest total Week 17 against Philadelphia, we all know Randle is the one taking a back seat. Beckham has other-worldly talent, and Manning is smart enough to deliver him the ball as often as possible.

Of course, the Giants will probably have to throw a lot to keep pace with the Eagles, which bodes well for Randle, but you should still treat him as no more than a No. 3 wide receiver in Fantasy.


Rueben Randle goes off for a career-high 132 yards, TD


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle caught six passes for a career-high 132 yards and a touchdown in the Week 16 win at St. Louis. It was only the second 100-yard game this season for Randle, who's up to three touchdowns.

Randle caught each of his targets. He started the game after coming off the bench the two previous weeks for being late to meetings.

Randle will try to finish strong Week 17 against the Eagles.


Giants WR Rueben Randle benched for a quarter again Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle was benched for the first quarter again Week 15 against the Redskins for apparent disciplinary reasons. However, this time neither coach Tom Coughlin or Randle would reveal the reason for Randle's benching.

He entered the game in the second quarter, which is exactly how the situation played out in Week 13 against the Jaguars after sitting out the first quarter because he was late for a team meeting. Randle, who was targeted four times, finished with two catches for 30 yards.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Giants WR Rueben Randle held to one catch Week 14


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle might not have faced any disciplinary action Sunday at Tennessee a week after being benched for a quarter for missing a team meeting. However, you could hardly tell by Randle's production he was active for four quarters Week 14.

The third-year receiver had just one catch for 9 yards in a 36-7 win. He was targeted three times.

The one catch was a season low for Randle, who hasn't had a touchdown in eight games. The Giants are back in action Week 15 against the Redskins. Randle had eight catches for 89 yards in Week 4 against Washington.


Giants' Randle misses meeting, benched for one quarter Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle finished with three catches for 52 yards during a 25-24 loss Week 13 at Jacksonville. However, Randle's stat line was not the story of the game for the third-year receiver.

Randle was notably absent from the team's lineup as the game began Sunday. Speculation arose whether or not Randle was on the sidelines due to injury or disciplinary reasons. He finally entered the game early in the second quarter, but it wasn't revealed until after the game why Randle missed the first quarter.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin wouldn't reveal why Randle sat out the opening period Sunday, stating: "That's between Rueben and I." Although, Randle was more forthcoming with information, revealing he was late for a team meeting Friday because he forgot about a schedule change.

Randle extended his scoreless streak to seven games Sunday. The Giants are back in action Week 14 at Tennessee.


Giants' Rueben Randle paces secondary targets in Week 12


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Eli Manning was locked in on rookie Odell Beckham (10 catches, 146 yards, two TDs) and running back Rashad Jennings (eight catches, 68 yards), and Randle was one of the quarterback's six other targeted receivers to split 11 catches. Tight end Daniel Fells also secured three receptions for 35 yards, while tight end Larry Donnell managed just two receptions for 24 yards. Wide receiver Preston Parker caught one of his three targets for 16 yards, while tight end Adrien Robinson caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown.

Randle, Parker and the team's TE corps should continue to play a complementary role behind Beckham moving forward. The Giants will take on the Jaguars in Week 13.


Rueben Randle makes the most of his chances


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle has struggled with consistency this season, but put things together for his finest game of the season in Week 11  against the 49ers.

Randle hauled in seven passes for 112 yards in the game, his best performance of the season. He still caught fewer than half of the 15 passes thrown his way, the third game in a row he has been targeted 10-plus times without catching half the passes.

Randle has remained a huge part of the team's plans throughout the season, racking up 94 targets through 10 games, but is on pace for just 833 yards on the season overall. Eli Manning is going to keep looking for him, but you probably won't be able to rely on Randle on weekly basis down the stretch.   


Giants WR Rueben Randle has career high in yards in losing effort


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle had his first 100-yard receiving game of the season Sunday vs. San Francisco. Sadly, it came in a losing effort.

Randle, who was targeted 15 times, finished with a team-high 112 yards on seven catches in a 16-10 loss. His longest reception went 26 yards. However, he is now without a touchdown in five straight games.

The 112 receiving yards were a career high for Randle, who has two 100-yard games in his career. The Giants are back in action Week 12 vs. Dallas.


Giants backup pass catchers do little Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Giants backup pass catchers did little Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Rueben Randle actually managed to pull in five balls, but only gained 39 yards. He received a team-high 10 targets. Tight end Larry Donnell hauled in four passes, picking up 26 yards. Daniel Fells caught just one pass, gaining 12 yards. 

The three will take on the 49ers Week 11. 


Rueben Randle doesn't do much with 11 targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Giants wideout Rueben Randle tied for the team lead with 11 targets Monday night, but converted those into just four catches for 49 yards. He failed to score for the third straight game.

Randle dropped a couple passes and got overthrown on at least two other occasions. He visits the Seahawks in Week 10.


Giants backup pass catchers do little Week 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) The Giants backup pass catchers did little Week 7 against the Cowboys.

Rueben Randle had a decent game. He caught six passes for 74 yards. He was overshadowed in the red zone by teammate Odell Beckham Jr. during the contest. Randle did receive a team-high nine targets.

Daniel Fells only caught one pass, but made it count. In the second quarter, Fells grabbed a 27 yard touchdown from Eli Manning. Preston Parker caught two passes, gaining 19 yards. 

All three players are on a bye Week 8.


Is either Giants wide receiver worth using?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) The Giants will begin life without top wide receiver Victor Cruz Week 7 at Dallas, leaving Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham to pick up the slack. So should you be looking to start them in Fantasy?

In Beckham's case, not yet. The rookie will be playing in only his third game after missing the first four with a hamstring injury, but as the 12th overall pick in the draft, he obviously has the potential to be an impact player. Let's just see him put together a 50-yard game first.

Randle is a different story because he was already a major part of the passing game before Cruz went down, actually leading the Giants in targets with 49. He's gotten at least nine in each of the last four games.

Of course, he doesn't have the yardage to show for it, so at least in standard leagues (as in non-PPR), he's still an iffy option. He probably will pick up some of Cruz's slack and become a more advisable option across the board, but this isn't the best matchup to test him out. Though the Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, they've allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game this season.

Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Randle right around 30th at wide receiver for this week.


Victor Cruz injuries gives others chance to emerge


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/13/2014) It's official. Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz has a torn patellar tendon in his right knee and will have season-ending surgery, leaving quarterback Eli Manning without his favorite target.

Or at least one of his favorites.

Turns out Cruz wasn't even the Giants' most-targeted receiver through the first six games. Rueben Randle was and becomes the clear No. 1 with Cruz out. He again led the way in targets with nine Week 6 at Philadelphia. He had a modest 58 yards on five catches, but let's not forget Manning threw for only 151.

Odell Beckham probably gets the biggest bump with Cruz's injury. Playing only his second game after missing the first four with a hamstring injury, he was targeted four times in Week 6, catching two passes for 28 yards. But he was on the field for 88 percent of the Giants snaps and showed his playmaking ability in Week 5, even scoring a touchdown. On a day when the Giants don't face a defense playing at its best, Beckham could impress.

Tight end Larry Donnell could get back to being a bigger part of the game plan with Cruz down. After catching 25 passes for 236 yards in the Giants' first four games, he has just one catch for 6 yards in their last two. He's probably already owned in your league, as is Randle, but Cruz's injury is enough incentive to stick with him a little longer.


Giants begin task of replacing WR Victor Cruz


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) How do the Giants replace Victor Cruz? Quarterback Eli Manning said the team must move on and figure out its best lineups without Cruz, who tore his patella tendon Sunday night at Philadelphia.

"What are going to be our best formations? What are going to be our best ways of putting people in position to do what they do best that will help out the team?" Manning told the team's website. "We have to be smart and creative with that and make sure guys, when they are on the field, are going to be able to play fast and know exactly what they are doing."

Coach Tom Coughlin called Cruz "a very, very, positive and popular young man who has meant an awful lot to this franchise. Just by virtue of his work ethic and the fact that he is a Pro Bowl playmaker. It is another test for the team. I was going to say the offensive side of the ball, but really for our team."

Cruz ranked third on the team with 23 catches for 337 yards and a touchdown. The website said Rueben Randle unofficially becomes the No. 1 receiver with rookie Odell Beckham Jr., Preston Parker and untested Corey Washington also helping fill the void.

"I think Preston Parker has demonstrated he can play inside, and he can play outside," Coughlin said. "The issue with Preston Parker has been the ball security issue, but as far as his learning multiple positions, he has done that. Corey Washington has played basically on the outside and has done a pretty good job of learning. He practices throughout the week with multiple reps, whatever day it might be. Even in a two-minute drill, he takes reps. He has had multiple opportunities to work."

Rueben Randle paces Giants in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle led the team with five catches for 58 yards in the shutout loss at Philadelpia, and he figures to be the No. 1 wideout going forward with Victor Cruz tearing his patella tendon Sunday. Randle drew a team-high nine targets after getting 10 each of the previous three games.

Randle will visit the Cowboys in Week 7.


Odell Beckham not major threat to Giants duo


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) After missing the first four games because of a hamstring injury, rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham made an impact in his NFL debut Week 5 against Atlanta, catching four passes for 44 yards and a touchdown.

But he played only about half as many snaps as starting duo Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle, and all but one of his five targets came on back-to-back drives in the second half.

Though neither Cruz nor Randle was at his best in that game, their targets were the same as usual. Cruz had six for the third time in five games, and Randle had 10 for the third straight game. And that was with quarterback Eli Manning throwing only 30 times. He's often closer to 40.

Beckham felt good after Week 5, and coach Tom Coughlin said the Giants will push him harder going forward. But especially against an Eagles team used to playing in shootouts, ranking 29th against the pass and allowing the most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers, it shouldn't make Cruz or Randle any less startable in Week 6.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both rank Cruz in their top 13. Randle is out of their top 24, but I'd probably start him, too.


Rueben Randle as targeted as ever


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) Though Rueben Randle's role was never really in jeopardy, he was one of the players that seemed most likely to lose looks whenever Odell Beckham returned from a hamstring injury. But even with Beckham back and contributing, scoring the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, Randle once again led the Giants in targets Week 5 against Atlanta, getting 10 for the third straight game.

He wasn't as productive with his targets, catching four passes for 33 yards, but his 3-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter shows he's as much in quarterback Eli Manning's sights as ever. Compare his numbers to Victor Cruz's (three catches for 22 yards) and it's pretty clear who suffered more with Beckham back.

Which isn't to say it'll be that way every week, but if Cruz is worth rostering in your league (and considering he's rostered in 100 percent of leagues, he is ), so is Randle.


Giants' Rueben Randle targeted 10 times for a third straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle scored for the first time in three games during a 30-20 win Week 5 vs. Atlanta. Randle, who was targeted a team-high 10 times, finished with four catches for 33 yards.

Randle opened the scoring Sunday with a 3-yard touchdown catch with 6:40 left in the first quarter. It was his second touchdown this season and 11th in his career.

Randle has been targeted 10 times in three straight games. The Giants are back in action Week 6 at Philadelphia.


What to do if big-time WRs sit out Sunday?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) With Texans receiver Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson of the Lions game-time decisions for their games this Sunday, Fantasy owners might be left scrambling for a replacement if they are ruled out. Luckily, both players play 1 pm EST Sunday, giving plenty of time for Fantasy owners to find a suitable replacement, if need be.

Some players you might want to look in to as possible fill-ins for the Johnsons are: Giants WR Rueben Randle (74 percent owned) vs. Atlanta; Rams WR Brian Quick (63 percent) at Philadelphia; Browns WR Andrew Hawkins (59 percent) at Tennessee; and Chargers WR Eddie Royal (81 percent) vs. N.Y. Jets. 


Ready to trust in Rueben Randle?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) Coming off what was far and away his best game of the season, Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle may seem like a sneaky play Week 5 against Atlanta. The Falcons are terrible on defense, having just allowed 558 yards to the Vikings, of all teams, and rank 30th against the pass, allowing 276.3 yards per game.

But the matchup might almost be too good for a player in Randle's situation. He's not the Giants' top weapon -- not even close. I'd bet on running back Rashad Jennings, wide receiver Victor Cruz and tight end Larry Donnell having big games before I bet on Randle. And after the way rookie running back Andre Williams performed in relief of Jennings last week, the Giants might involve him more, too.

Favorable matchup or not, not all of those players can have big games, and because the Falcons aren't strong enough anywhere on defense to neutralize one of those threats, Randle may take a back seat.

I'm not saying he can't have a big game. I'm just saying I'd have to be convinced he has a better spot in the pecking order to put any money on it. I probably wouldn't resort to him except in leagues that require the use of three wide receivers.


Which receivers are worth adding this week?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper


Rueben Randle fails to haul in a score


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle failed to haul in a score Thursday against Washington.

Randle had a good game overall, hauling in eight catches for 89 yards. He had a shot at a touchdown, but it was taken away on a controversial call. Randle caught the ball in the end zone, but it popped out when he was hit and wound up being an interception. Though Randle had crossed the goal line, it was determined he could not complete the catch, and the call stood. 

Randle will take on the Falcons Week 5. 


Receivers could go against the norm Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start. 


Rueben Randle totals 27 yards on 10 targets Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Giants made a concerted effort Week 3 against the Texans to get the football to wide receiver Rueben Randle. However, despite a team-high 10 targets, Randle finished with just five catches for 27 yards in a 30-17 win.

Randle was targeted on the first play of scrimmage Sunday and three times on the second drive. By halftime, he had seven targets, but he managed just four catches for 26 yards.

Randle had a chance in the fourth quarter to haul in a 13-yard touchdown pass, but the pass hit him in the chest and he couldn't make the one-handed grab. 

Randle has just 11 catches for 67 yards and one touchdown through three games. The Giants are back in action Thursday against the Redskins.


Rueben Randle hauls in 10th career touchdown


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle notched his 10th career receiving touchdown and recorded a touchdown for the first time in eight games during a 25-14 loss Week 2 vs. Arizona.

Randle ended his touchdown slump when he outleaped Patrick Peterson for a 7-yard touchdown near the sideline in the end zone with 37 seconds left in the first half. It was an impressive catch, as Randle tipped the football to himself and completed the play by grabbing the football with one hand and securing it against his chest. 

Randle finished with four catches for 39 yards. He was targeted seven times. The Giants are back in action Week 3 vs. Houston.
