Rueben Randle has a lot to prove entering 2014, but the offensive scheme change argues for optimism. Last year Randle and QB Eli Manning were often on different pages, as Kevin Gilbride's offense asked Randle to run option routes and correctly read the defense. New OC Ben McAdoo runs a West Coast offense that will take the guess work out of Randle's hands. That's essential to Randle's fantasy outlook particularly with the Giants addition of Odell Beckham with the 12th pick in the NFL draft. At 6'3", 210 lbs. Randle gives Eli Manning a big target; something that neither Beckham nor Victor Cruz offer. And last year's six touchdowns (best on the team) are a testament to his ability in the red zone. Yet, his catch rate (41 catches in 80 targets) must improve and that's not solely to blame on last year's option routes. Randle has top 20 fantasy upside, but the risks are too high to pay that price on draft day. (May 25)

Giants | Four returning punts in practice (Tue Jul 22, 01:29 PM) - New York Giants WR Trindon Holliday, WR Odell Beckham Jr., WR Victor Cruz and WR Rueben Randle all are returning punts in practice Tuesday, July 22.

Our View: Holliday should be the primary return man for the Giants this year. He's dangerous with the ball in his hands--for both teams. Holliday fell out of favor with the Broncos because of fumbling problems. If he can hang onto the rock, he's the best option for the Giants. Beckham, Cruz and Randle are going to be heavily involved in the passing game. They don't need to risk injury to any of these guys with playing time on special teams.

Giants | Odell Beckham Jr. viewed as outside guy (Wed Jul 16, 11:33 PM) - New York Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. is viewed as an outside receiver despite standing just 5-foot-11, and he might push WR Rueben Randle for the No. 2 job opposite WR Victor Cruz.

Our View: We certainly think Beckham is a better option to start on the outside. Randle has been inconsistent during his career, and he might be better used in the slot. Beckham is clutch. He's fearless when running routes over the middle, but he has the speed to attack a defense vertically. He's a much more explosive athlete than Randle.

Giants | Rueben Randle the favorite for No. 2 WR job (Tue Jul 15, 08:31 PM) - New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is the favorite to start the year as the team's No. 2 receiver across from WR Victor Cruz, according to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. Samuel said that Randle impressed in OTAs with his physical play and displayed a wide catching radius that QB Eli Manning likes.

Our View: Keep an eye on this competition during training camp. Randle has the experience edge, but 2014 first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. is a superior talent. We're excited by the Giants new offense under OC Ben McAdoo, so the WR2 with the Giants could have more fantasy value than some think.
