From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Randle didn't have a huge game, but he did get the added opportunity that we expected in the wake of the Victor Cruz injury, and that will translate to more production going forward, although his large red zone role is clearly going to be shared with Odell Beckham from now on, enough so for Beckham to become the primary touchdown scorer.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs ATL (10 / 4 / 33 / 1 rec)

Reuben Randle got decent production in this game and scored but did not receive enough targets from Manning for anything more. Randle was a nice role player for the Giants and made a few clutch catches when conversions were needed. Randle was wide open in the endzone on a play action rollout but the pass was somewhat off target and Randle could not stay in bounds to complete the catch. It did not matter however as Randle scored on the next play. Randle got excellent separation on a comeback route in the endzone and provided Manning a huge window to throw into to get the first touchdown. Randle ran his routes well on Sunday and defenders respected his deep threat ability at the line of scrimmage. Randle looked very quick and showed impressive hands as he snagged a fastball from Manning over the middle on a slant play and got away from defenders temporarily to get a lot of yards after catch. Randle did fumble the ball at the end of this play but was fortunate as the Giants recovered and maintained possession. Randle always looked dangerous and open for Manning to throw to but Manning has a lot of weapons to involve with the addition of Beckham. It will be difficult for Randle to get consistent production in this offense due the volume of weapons for Manning and the Giants also like to have a strong ground game where possible.

2014 Week 6 vs PHI (9 / 5 / 58 / 0 rec)

Reuben Randle was the leading receiver against the Eagles for the Giants but that isn't saying much as the offense didn't score any points on the night. Randle performed as well as can be expected from the receiver and caught every decent pass thrown his way but the Giants really struggled to put long drives together consistently. Randle caught a lot of passes on the sideline with curl and comeback routes, using his speed to take advantage of backed off coverage from the defense. Randle has good hands and was able to catch a few high passes from Manning, who was under a lot of pressure throughout the game. Manning did misfire by overthrowing Randle late in the game on a curl route but the game was out of reach quickly for the Giants. Randle has good size and quickness which helps him run shorter routes on the sideline but doesn't have any game breaking ability. Manning did rely on him for first downs however, which shows he has confidence in the receiver but the rest of the offense played too poorly for Randle to make a difference. Randle also had two of his catches late in the second half as the Eagles defense began to play soft and give up shorter routes.

2014 Week 7 vs DAL (9 / 6 / 74 / 0 rec)

Randle was active early in the Giants passing game with three targets. Randle secured the two hitch routes, but dropped an open target on a slant route, stalling a promising drive. When Dallas had all the momentum, Eli Manning and Randle hooked up for a much needed third-and-down conversion on an in-cut. Later in the game, Randle corralled a perfect back shoulder pass and gained yards after the catch on a slant route. His lone touchdown opportunity came on a jump ball target in the end zone, which was well-covered and not catchable. As a blocker, Randle was called for holding on a wide receiver screen. Odell Beckham's ability to acceleration and separation was evident, but possession targets are Randle's forte with his ability to box out defenders.

Giants | Rueben Randle could work in slot (Thu Oct 23, 12:57 AM) - New York Giants WR Rueben Randle could be used in the slot over the final nine games, as the team works to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee). 'The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Rueben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field,' receivers coach Sean Ryan said Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Giants | G-Men comfortable with WR options (Tue Oct 14, 01:07 PM) - New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. are acceptable options to replace WR Victor Cruz (knee), according to head coach Tom Coughlin, with WR Preston Parker in the slot position. The Giants are content in not trading for another receiver from outside the organization. The only other healthy receiver on the current roster is WR Corey Washington.

Our View: We'll see how this shakes out in the near future. Randle and Beckham are the primary players to focus on here. We like Beckham's athleticism and upside better, but he's been slowed down his rookie season by a nagging hamstring injury. Randle has the experience edge, but his play has been plagued by concentration problems throughout his career. Parker is also an interesting player to keep an eye on--but only in deeper leagues.
