Week 16: at St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. In case you haven't noticed, Eli Manning has won his last two starts, thrown 250 or more yards in each game, and hooked up with Odell Beckham Jr. for four TDs in the last two weeks. Last week, Manning threw 23/34 for 250 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions vs. Washington, finding Beckham for all three TDs (15 targets for 12/143/3 receiving). He was followed by Rueben Randle (four for 2/30/0) and Kevin Ogletree (three for 3/25/0). Larry Donnell saw two targets for 2/11/0 receiving. The Giants' offense has (finally) found their footing here in the last month of the NFL season. The Rams' pass D gave up 16/30 for 131 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, and generated one sack for -8 yards vs. Arizona last week, after holding Washington to 23/36 for 179 net yards passing, zero TDs and two iterceptions thrown, with seven sacks taken for -43 yards two games ago. That's some stout pass D, friends. This will be a good test of the Giants' progress in this phase of the game - it's a tough matchup for Manning and friends.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs JAX (4 / 3 / 52 / 0 rec)

Rueben Randle managed only three catches against the Jaguars but they were important plays for key first downs. Randle got wide open on a curl route against soft zone coverage and picked up extra yards after the catch. Randle got his hands on a comeback route play from Manning but he stepped one foot out of bounds. Randle was open again on curl route and slipped away from the first tackle attempt for an impressive first down. Randle's last catch was a slant play inside that was well placed by Manning and perfectly in stride for Randle to pick up a lot of yards. Randle played his role well as a possession receiver but his deep play threat we have seen it no longer being utilised. Beckham jr. is clearly the top target for Manning. Randle has a nice role in this offense but the production is highly inconsistent and more suited to PPR leagues.

2014 Week 14 vs TEN (3 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

Rueben Randle managed only one catch on Sunday as the Giants fail to make him a feature player anymore. Randle caught a simple drag route across the middle of the field early in the game and turned it into a first down with his quickness but didn't manage another catch in the whole game. Randle was targeted on a tick play receiver pass by Beckham in the first half but Randle was double covered as the Titans were not fooled. Randle's production as suffered greatly with the emergence of Beckham jr. and the Giants ran the ball very often which meant Randle's role as a possession receiver was somewhat unneeded in this game.

2014 Week 15 vs WAS (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)

Reuben Randle had a fairly disappointing game on Sunday as his role in this offense continues to shrink. Randle was targeted on a hitch to the outside early in the game but he dropped the pass before he could secure it. Randle also got his hands on a comeback on the outside but a redskin defender did well to break up the pass. Randle did make a nice catch in traffic on a deep hitch play, securing the pass while taking a hit shortly after. Manning hit Randle again on a crossing pattern over the middle, as he managed to break free from his defender for a nice gain. Randle was sort of an afterthought after Beckham jr however as the bulk of Manning's targets go Beckham jr.'s way. Randle has rarely produced as a #2 fantasy receiver this season and is not currently worth owning in most fantasy leagues. Beckham jr is proving too dominant a player and is drawing a lot of targets. Randle has the quickness and hands to be a good possession receiver but does not have nearly the explosion or big play ability as Beckham.

Giants | Rueben Randle benched (Sun Dec 14, 09:32 PM) - New York Giants WR Rueben Randle was benched for at least the first quarter of the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins, and it might have been longer had WR Kevin Ogletree (head) not suffered a head injury.

Our View: The headline should read; Rueben Randle benched (AGAIN). We've seen this before with Randle this season. He's not a fantasy factor for championship fantasy games in Week 16, and Randle has little dynasty value.
