From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): The targets continue to come in bunches for Randle. While that did translate to a very good fantasy game in Week 11, it hasn't been a surefire creator of value for him so far this year. The Giants schedule is conducive to good passing numbers going forward, so Randle is worth an add for depth at least.

Week 12: vs Dallas Cowboys

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Eli Manning had one of his best games of the year at Dallas during Week 7, with zero interceptions thrown or sacks taken, and he ended the night with 21/33 for 248 yards passing and three TD passes. Unfortunately, since then things have gone downhill for the Giants' passing attack, with the disastrous five-interception debacle happening last week vs. San Francisco (22/45 for 280 yards passing, one TD and two sacks taken for -15 yards). The Giants' passing attack is mired in (another) funk entering this divisional game. Rueben Randle (15 targets for 7/112/0) had his first 100+ yards-receiving game of the year last week, though, and Odell Beckham Jr. posted 13 for 6/93/0. Larry Donnell did get back in the end-zone last week with six for 3/54/1, so it was not all bad for the Giants' receivers despite Manning's frequent misfires. The Dallas pass D is ranked 14th in the NFL averaging 239.8 net passing yards allowed per game, with 14 passing scores handed out to date vs. 10 interceptions and 16 sacks generated (10th- and 28th-ranked in the NFL, respectively). Blake Bortles posted 22/37 for 262 net yards, zero TDs and one interception thrown in London (while being sacked four times for -28 yards) while Carson Palmer threw 22/34 for 237 net yards, three TDs and one interception at Dallas the game prior - the Dallas secondary is a mediocre unit that does generate turnovers on a regular basis. Manning was a turnover machine last week, and the Dallas secondary goes for interceptions, but is vulnerable to the passing attack otherwise. On balance, this looks like a neutral matchup for the Giants.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs IND (11 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)

Reuben Randle got a lot of targets from Manning on Monday against the Colts but came away with average production. Randle's chemistry seemed off with Manning as the two could not connect consistently throughout the game and several passes looked very inaccurate. Randle started off his game well with a tightly contested catch over the middle on an in cut, using his body well to secure the grab. Manning then tried to find Randle deep on a go route but the pass was overthrown. Randle got his hands on a few short patterns to the outside and picked up some first downs but couldn't break into the open field. Manning tried to hit Randle again deep down the field but the pass was inaccurate and Randle did not achieve enough separation from his defender. Randle caught a first down late in the game on a post route but had to double catch it to secure the play and the game was long decided at this point. Randle and Manning need to work on their timing as it was evident on Monday night that the rapport between the two is weak right down, especially in the long passing game.

2014 Week 10 vs SEA (10 / 5 / 39 / 0 rec)

Reuben Randle had another somewhat mediocre performance as his production and impact on the game was average. Randle was an afterthought and has become a role player with the emergence of Beckham as a more dangerous threat. Randle almost hauled in a high pass from Manning on the sideline in the first quarter but unfortunately his heel was ruled out of bounds. Randle did have a very impressive slant catch over the middle for a big first down, catching the ball in traffic and securing the catch well. Randle hauled in some curls and plays over the middle of the field but failed to make a mark on this game. Beckham is clearly the more dangerous threat down the field and is overall more talented as a receiver which will reduce Randles production. The Giants offense also struggled a lot in the second half with turnovers and Randle could only watch as his team fell apart. Randle is a nice option for Manning when the Giants have the lead or can successfully run the ball due to his size/talent and has shown flashes as a deep threat in this offense but does not produce good numbers consistently and is therefore unreliable for fantasy.

2014 Week 11 vs SF (15 / 7 / 112 / 0 rec)

Rueben Randle played a very efficient game for New York and was the top target for Manning on Sunday. Randle was a great possession receiver for the Giants who picked up many key first downs to keep his team in the game. Randle and Manning connected on many slant and in breaking routes over the middle of the field which burned the defense many times. Randle used his size and quickness to take advantage and win these types of battles at the line of scrimmage. Randle also showed a good pair of hands hauling in curl routes, just behind the first down marker and showed good chemistry throughout with Manning. Randle bailed out his quarterback by making a terrific catch over the middle in the second half. The pass was thrown behind Randle but he was able to reach behind and secure it for a big first down. Randle was open in the end zone on a slant pattern but Manning was hit as he threw which caused the pass to become wildly inaccurate. Manning tried to find Randle deep down the field on a go route but the pass was overthrown by a lot and picked off by the defense. Randle was excellent with the ball in his hands after the catch and has found a nice role in this offense. Randle has good size and quickness to run short routes and takes advantage with physical running after the catch.
