Rueben Randle totals 27 yards on 10 targets Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) 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.


Rueben Randle a forgotten man in aerial attack Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle was a forgotten man in the aerial attack Week 1 against the Lions.

Randle caught a short pass from Eli Manning for a gain of 7 yards in the first quarter before an illegal use of hands penalty by the third-year receiver wiped the play away. He didn't make his first catch until the second quarter. He was targeted just three times, finishing with two catches for one yard in a 35-14 defeat.

Randle will be seeking more targets, especially in the red zone come Week 2 at home against Arizona. Five of his six touchdown receptions came at home last season.

Rueben Randle could be strong red zone presence for Eli Manning in Week 1


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/5/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle is hoping to become a strong red zone target for Eli Manning, starting in Week 1 Monday night against Detroit.

Randle had a six-game stretch last season where he found the end zone six times. Unfortunately, that didn't come against the Lions in Week 16. Randle had an average performance against a weak Detroit secondary, as he was limited to four catches for 40 yards.

Wide receivers against the Lions averaged 26.88 Fantasy points per game in standard CBSSports.com leagues, which was second-to-last in the league, only ahead of Philadelphia.

Randle should have a favorable matchup, considering how below average Detroit was against wideouts last season. However, it seems as if Eli Manning will enter the season still learning the new offense, which could hurt Randle's numbers. Consider him a flex option at best in Week 1.

Rueben Randle gets in the end zone Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle made only two grabs but one of them counted for six during Friday’s preseason game against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Randle came down with a 15-yard grab in the end zone with 11 seconds remaining in the first half. He worked with the first unit for the first two quarters before sitting out the rest of the game. He was targeted four times and finished with two catches for 41 yards.

Rueben Randle 'doesn't appear in sync' with Eli Manning


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle's stock is falling, according to The Star-Ledger. "Even in practice, Randle doesn't appear to be in sync with Eli Manning, unless they're working on red-zone plays," the paper said.

Randle has one catch in three preseason games, though it's hard to single him out as the entire first-string offense has struggled.


Rueben Randle plays first half of preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Giants receiver Rueben Randle wasn't much of a factor in Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers.

Although the starters left the game after two drives, Randle remained in the game to get some reps. He played the entire first half and was limited to only one catch for 12 yards despite being targeted three times, all of which came from backup quarterback Ryan Nassib.

Rueben Randle to reap rewards of the red zone?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2014) After Rueben Randle got a bunch of targets in the red zone during drills on Thursday, the Newark Star-Ledger advised that "we should probably get used to seeing" the Giants' tall receiver used in such a capacity. Randle dropped one target but caught the other two. 

Randle had missed a couple of practices with a hamstring issue but was back at it. Randle had 41 receptions for 611 yards and a team-high six touchdowns last season.


Rueben Randle held out with hamstring issue


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) The Giants held receiver Rueben Randle out of Tuesday's practice due to a sore hamstring, reports the New York Post.

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.

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