Giants hope to see more consistent Rueben Randle


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Giants are counting on more from receiver Rueben Randle this season, reports ESPN.

The report says Randle has the size and the physical skills needed to be a good NFL wide receiver. His issue, to this point, has been consistency of concentration.

Randle had 41 receptions for 611 yards and a team-high six touchdowns last season.

"Intelligence, he's got that," Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan said. "For me, the battle with him is consistency, and I think he's addressed it in this offseason in the way he approaches his job. I've seen a difference in his seriousness toward his work. This spring, I thought he was locked in. I thought he did a good job learning the new offense. Like I said, he's got some football intelligence to him. Things come to him. He sees things pretty well. But I thought he really worked hard at being locked into the meetings and on the field as well. I noticed a difference in him."


Rueben Randle improving; slot in his future?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) The early part of the offseason saw Rueben Randle's name effectively dragged through the mud by past and current Giants coaches and executives. But through minicamp he's shown sharper routes, consistently strong hands and could be primed for a big year after a strong offseason according to the Newark Star-Ledger

Could this grand offseason lead to more responsibilities for Randle? The New York Daily News reports Randle has been spoken to by coaches about playing in the slot, which would require some extra chemistry with quarterback Eli Manning. The two had some miscommunications last year that led to turnovers. 

"They were talking to me about coming in on the inside," he said, "using my big body in the seams. Whatever they need me to do, I'll do it."

Randle played in the slot during his sophomore season at LSU, so he has some experience with it. 


Rueben Randle comfortable in new offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/12/2014) Giants third-year receiver Rueben Randle said he likes the new offense under coordinator Ben McAdoo, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

"Everything is pretty much black and white, simple. What you have is what you run," Randle said. "It just takes a lot of things off our mind and go out there and play football, just use our ability to get open. And that is what we are doing."

The report says Randle already looks pretty comfortable. Under former coordinator Kevin Gilbride, Randle had trouble getting on the same page as his quarterback at times.

But now, he feels free, able to play without any of the past restrictions that might have potentially stunted his growth.

"When you can go out there and maintain and focus on one specific things, you can play a lot faster," Randle said. "That is what we are doing here. That is going to be key here moving forward for us to make plays."


Report: Rueben Randle will have to compete for his role


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/13/2014) The Giants made a big commitment to rookie Odell Beckham by taking him in the first round of May's draft. That should lead to a starting job for him. What about Rueben Randle? The Newark Star-Ledger believes Randle will compete for the third wide receiver job with Jerrel Jernigan. The paper also believes that Randle is the frontrunner for the gig because of his size and ability to play on the outside. Randle's experience is also a plus.

Addition of Odell Beckham changes Giants' receiving corps


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) The Giants view rookie receiver Odell Beckham as a contributor right away, reports ESPN.

"He's a dynamic receiver, dynamic punt returner and a dynamic kickoff returner," general manager Jerry Reese said. "You're getting a guy that can score touchdowns in three different ways for you. There's no way we would pass him up."

Beckham is expected to replace the departed Hakeem Nicks, and his addition allows the Giants to keep Victor Cruz as a slot receiver with Beckham and Rueben Randle playing outside.

"We're talking about the quarterback needing help, and this guy is a weapon," Reese said of Eli Manning and Co. "We need a weapon on the outside. Victor is more of an inside receiver. Victor can't play on the outside. We have Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and we got Mario Manningham back, so we're trying to get the quarterback some weapons. You need weapons in this league. We think this guy is a weapon."


Giants replace Hakeem Nicks with Odell Beckham Jr.


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) The Giants needed a replacement for Hakeem Nicks, and apparently they weren't sold on Rueben Randle as a starter. So they drafted receiver Odell Beckham Jr. from LSU at No. 12 overall.

Beckham has the chance to start right away, and he will help Eli Manning, who is coming off a down year in 2013. The Giants have a new offensive coordinator in Ben McAdoo, and you can expect to see a lot of three-receiver sets with Victor Cruz, Beckham and Randle.

We hope this will help the Giants make some plays down the field, and Beckham is considered a good route runner, who had 143 catches for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns in college.

We like Beckham with a late-round flier in re-draft Fantasy Football leagues, and he's likely a second-round pick in rookie-only formats. Randle now also drops from a potential mid-round pick to a late-round selection in the majority of leagues.


Victor Cruz not sold on Rueben Randle?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Giants receiver Victor Cruz doesn't sound certain Rueben Randle can ably replace Hakeem Nicks. In an interview with NFL Network, Cruz suggested the Giants take a receiver at No. 12 overall in the draft because the team "definitely" needs help at the position.

"A (big-play receiver) is something we need in this offense to be successful," Cruz said. "An outside guy that can do the job and that can help fuel all the other receivers in the locker room and put some fire up under them to get them where they have to be."

Cruz hopes the G-Men take Mike Evans, a 6-5 receiver out of Texas A&M.


Tom Coughlin believes in Rueben Randle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Asked about replacing Hakeem Nicks, Giants coach Tom Coughlin immediately brought up third-year wideout Rueben Randle, reports ESPN.com.

"We have high expectations for Rueben," Coughlin said. "Rueben has to continue to develop, continue to become a better pro -- focus, concentration, production on the field, consistency, day in and day out. Practicing. You’ve seen the plays the guy can make. He’s made great plays ... We have a lot of belief and stock in his development."

Randle caught a team-high six touchdown passes last season but "also struggled at times to get on the same page as quarterback Eli Manning, and some of their difficulties in that regard led to interceptions," the report said. 


Giants GM: Jury out on Rueben Randle


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Giants general manager Jerry Reese said he's not sure if Rueben Randle could replace impending free agent Hakeem Nicks as the team's top outside receiver, reports the New York Daily News.

“The jury’s still out on that,” Reese said. “I think he’s a good player. I’m not sure if he’s a one, if he’s a two, if he’s a three, but I think he can contribute to our receiver corps.”

Randle caught 41 passes for 611 yards and six touchdowns last year. Nicks is expected to sign elsewhere.


Giants' hiring of McAdoo could make passing game re-emerge


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) The Giants' hiring of Bob McAdoo as offensive coordinator signals a big change in how the offense will operate. ESPN's Dan Graziano had a great breakdown of what to expect from the new scheme in New York. 

McAdoo is expected to run a West Coast offense with zone-read principles. It means fewer deep passes and a more controlled, methodical approach but it also means letting your key receivers make plays after the quarterback goes through his reads quickly. That should pop open the door for Victor Cruz to be a factor again, make Rueben Randle a decent regular in the offense and potentially make Jerrel Jernigan a key contributor (this is assuming Hakeem Nicks isn't back with the team). All of that, in turn, would help prop up Eli Manning's stats.

It's something to watch this offseason as pretty much every Giants player will wind up being a sleeper in drafts this summer. 

 


Rueben Randle's knee to be evaluated in two weeks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Giants receiver Rueben Randle, who left the Week 17 win after aggravating a knee injury, said the swelling in his knee should disappear with rest, reports the New York Daily News. Randle's knee will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Randle also said that if the Giants don't re-sign Hakeem Nicks, he can be the main outside receiver. Randle caught 41 passes for 611 yards and six touchdowns in his second season.


Rueben Randle will not return Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle will not return Week 17.

Randle aggravated a knee injury during the game. He did not catch a pass, and was targeted just one time.


Two questionable Giants ready to play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Giants WR Rueben Randle and CB Trumaine McBride are active Week 17.

Randle is dealing with a knee injury. He did not practice Thursday and Friday. McBride has a groin injury, and was limited in practice Friday.


Two Giants ruled questionable


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Giants WR Rueben Randle and CB Trumaine McBride are questionable Week 17.

Randle injured his knee Wednesday, and has not been able to participate in practice Thursday and Friday. McBride was limited Friday with a groin injury.


Rueben Randle able to put in some work Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle was able to put in some work during practice Friday.

Reporters said Randle wasn't doing much, and would likely be listed as limited on the final injury report. He's dealing with a knee injury.


Rueben Randle not practicing Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle was not able to practice Thursday.

Randle most likely has an injury, but the team hasn't revealed it yet. With Victor Cruz out, the team's wide receiver depth is weak at the moment.


Rueben Randle makes late-game impact Week 16


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle, who didn't make it onto the stat sheet his last time out, bounced back and was heavily targeted during Sunday's overtime win over the Lions in Week 16.

Randle caught two of his four receptions for 32 yards during the final drive of the game, which resulted in the game-winning field goal. He was targeted nine times and finished with four catches for 40 yards in a 23-20 victory.

The Giants will end the season at home against the Redskins.

Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle aiming to make some noise vs. Detroit


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) With Victor Cruz set to miss the final two games of the season with a knee injury, Giants wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle may see more targets heading into Sunday's game against the Lions in Week 16.

Nicks was practically a non-factor in Week 15 against Seattle, tallying five yards on one reception. Four of Eli Manning's five interceptions that day were on passes intended for Nicks. He has 50 catches for 794 yards and no touchdowns this season.

Randle didn't make it onto the stat sheet against Seattle, failing to come down with either of the targets thrown his way. He has 37 catches for 571 yards and six touchdowns on the year.

The Lions have not allowed a 100-yard receiver since Week 12 (Tiquan Underwood). In fact, opposing wide receivers are averaging only 16.3 Fantasy points over the last three games against Detroit. Consider both Randle and Nicks as low-end starting options for Week 16.

Rueben Randle held off the stat sheet Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle didn't make it onto the stat sheet during a 23-0 loss Week 15 vs. Seattle. Randle failed to catch either of the targets thrown his way.

It was the second time this season Randle was held without a catch. He also had no catches during a 15-7 win Week 8 at Philadelphia. He was targeted once in that game.

It wasn't really Randle's fault he couldn't get involved on offense Sunday. Quarterback Eli Manning struggled all game, throwing five interceptions. The Giants had just 81 yards of offense after three quarters.

The Giants are back in action Week 16 at Detroit.


Rueben Randle can't get past three catches


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle has managed more than three catches just twice this season and both of those games came during the first five weeks. Randle heads into Week 15 vs. Seattle without more than three catches in eight straight games.

What's really hurt Fantasy owners as of late is Randle's three-game scoreless streak. Fantasy owners could handle Randle's low-catch totals when he posted six touchdowns over a six-game span from Week 5 through Week 11. However, if Randle isn't scoring touchdowns, then he isn't a very productive Fantasy option.

As you can imagine, wide receivers haven't had outstanding numbers against a very good Seattle defense. Wide receivers average just 110.2 receiving yards and 14.7 Fantasy points per week, which is the second-lowest average. Wide receivers have also totaled just eight touchdowns in 13 games and only five wide receivers have tallied at least 10 Fantasy points.

The Giants' offense continues to be inconsistent, so a tough matchup Week 15 is not an ideal time to rely on Randle. It's probably best to look toward other Fantasy options this week.


Rueben Randle does little in Week 14 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle failed to make much of an impact as he was held under 30 receiving yards for the second consecutive game during Sunday's loss to the Chargers in Week 14.

Randle was limited to just one catch for 9 yards in the first half and caught just one pass in the second half, and 18-yard grab for his longest gain of the day. He finished the game with two catches for 27 yards on four targets in a 37-14 defeat.

Randle has racked up 148 yards over his last four games. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Rueben Randle catches three passes again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2013) Giants receiver Rueben Randle caught three passes Week 13 for the fourth straight game. They went for 20 yards, his lowest output in the streak.

Randle, who was targeted four times, did not a score for the second straight week after getting six touchdowns in the previous six games. He'll visit the Chargers in Week 14.


Rueben Randle looking for end zone again


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2013) Giants receiver Rueben Randle is looking to find the end zone in Week 13 at Washington and start a new touchdown streak.

Randle's two-game scoring streak ended in Week 12 against Dallas, and he has scored in five of his past seven games coming into this matchup with the Redskins. He has a good chance to score in this game.

The Redskins have allowed 12 receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points with 13 touchdowns. Randle only has one catch for 13 yards against Washington in his young career.

We consider Randle just a boom-or-bust No. 3 Fantasy receiver. If he scores he'll be great, and there's a good chance that could happen based on his recent history and the Redskins defense, but if he doesn't find the end zone you could be disappointed.


Rueben Randle held without TD for second time in last six games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle stepped into the starting lineup Week 12 vs. Dallas with Hakeem Nicks sidelined due to injury, but Randle had a relatively quiet performance during a 24-21 loss. 

Randle finished with just three catches for a team-high 64 receiving yards. His longest catch went 22 yards and he was tied for the team-lead with seven targets.

Sunday was just the second time in the last seven games Randle was held without a touchdown. The Giants are back in action Week 13 at Washington.


Rueben Randle's scoring spree could continue


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/20/2013) All Rueben Randle does is catch touchdowns. He leads the Giants with six, all in the last six games.

Randle only has four red-zone targets, two of which have gone for scores. He excels at the big play and has averaged at least 16 yards per catch five times this year. Randle has surpassed three catches only twice, but he makes his receptions count.

Now he faces a Cowboys defense that's allowed 20 passing scores. Only three teams have allowed more. Play Randle as a high-end WR3 for Week 12.
