New York Giants WR Victor Cruz thinks the offense will improve if more targets are directed his way. "In order for us to be successful I think there needs to be an increased number of targets in my direction," Cruz said, on a conference call with reporters. "And other playmakers' directions, just like Rueben Randle as well, in my opinion." Cruz had only six targets and finished with two grabs and 24 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions Monday, Sept. 8. Randle was targeted only three times for two catches and one yard. The Giants offense as a whole was unproductive against the Lions after looking poor in the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Eli Manning has struggled to pick up the new terminology of the offense, and that's something that could continue to hurt Cruz and the other playmakers early in the season. The Green Bay Packers should present a chance to get going, but you may want to avoid Cruz ($5,600; 11.2% of cap) in FantasyScore for at least another week.

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle will be available to return punts when WR Odell Beckham Jr. isn't able to, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. "You can count on him to catch the football. People surround the returner, and you will be safe with that."
Tue, 19 Aug 2014 08:19:25 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan and Mario Manningham have not made many big plays this preseason. Cruz initially caught a long play-action pass Saturday, Aug. 16, but dropped it. Randle has one catch for 12 yards in three games. Jernigan has not carried over his momentum from late last season, per head coach Tom Coughlin, and also dropped a throw from Eli Manning Saturday. Corey Washington has three touchdowns but received fewer first-string practice reps than Manningham in first-string practice reps Monday, Aug. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Add in Odell Beckham Jr.'s injury, and there's little reason to believe in this offense right now. At least this may make them cheaper fantasy options.
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 10:40:51 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (hamstring) is participating in practice Friday, Aug. 1.
Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:30:33 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (hamstring) said his hamstring is feeling better and he expects to practice Thursday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: This is good news for Randle and the Giants. Randle should be considered a WR3 on draft day.
Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:56:15 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (undisclosed) is not participating in practice Tuesday, July 29.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:29:16 -0700
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.
Wed, 16 Jul 2014 20:33:39 -0700
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.
Fantasy Tip: Beckham is a Top 60 fantasy receiver heading into the season, and he obviously has quite a bit of upside. He is worth nabbing in the area of Rounds 12-16 on draft day in most fantasy formats.
Tue, 15 Jul 2014 17:31:49 -0700
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.
Fantasy Tip: If Randle does secure the starting job, he should be able to put up solid numbers in New York's offense. He could be particularly valuable in the red zone thanks to his size. Consider him a WR3 for fantasy purposes.
Tue, 24 Jun 2014 12:19:02 -0700
New York Giants wide receivers coach Sean Ryan said he has seen improvement in WR Rueben Randle this offseason. "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," Ryan said. "I've seen a difference in his seriousness towards his work. This spring, I thought he was locked in. I thought he did a good job learning the new offense. He's got some football intelligence 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."
Randle also had trouble with former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride's offense last season. He struggled getting on the same page as QB Eli Manning in a few plays that led to interceptions. The offense relied on option routes, and the ability of the wide receivers to identify the same coverages as Manning did at the line of scrimmage. Randle had issues with that and could theoretically thrive in a simpler scheme.
Fantasy Tip: Randle has a chance to shine in the slot this season and is a decent option for your WR3/flex position.
Thu, 19 Jun 2014 19:04:15 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle said the coaches have talked with him about the possibility of lining up as the slot receiver at times this upcoming season.

Fri, 09 May 2014 10:23:22 -0700
New York Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. is expected to play on the outside with WR Rueben Randle, according to Giants general manager Jerry Reese. WR Victor Cruz will play out of the slot. Reese also noted the return of WR Mario Manningham to the offense.
Fantasy Tip: It is presumed that Beckham will battle Manningham for a starting job in training camp and the preseason. Should he win the job, the electric rookie is a WR4 in standard formats.
Thu, 08 May 2014 18:23:28 -0700
The New York Giants selected Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham Jr. with the 12th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: They decided to go with a complementary weapon for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. Eli Manning is still a sound fantasy backup who has a bit more potential if New York can protect him a bit better. Beckham is a better long-term prospect than for 2014, but he's a capable reserve fantasy catcher due to his speed. Maybe Ben McAdoo will use him creatively.
Fri, 28 Mar 2014 10:36:34 -0700
The New York Giants have high expectations for WR Rueben Randle. "We have high expectations for Rueben," head coach Tom 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."
Tue, 18 Mar 2014 09:43:41 -0700
The New York Giants agreed to terms with WR Mario Manningham (49ers) on a one-year deal Tuesday, March 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Manningham will have to learn a new offense, and will have to prove that he can stay on the field. He is likely behind Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan ahead of him on the depth chart. At best he is a No. 4 wide receiver.
Sat, 22 Feb 2014 08:47:43 -0800
New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese said the team expects WR Rueben Randle to make a significant jump next season.
Fri, 14 Feb 2014 17:01:53 -0800
The New York Giants could reduce WR Rueben Randle's punt returning duties next season, because he could receive at bigger role on offense. Randle was the team's primary punt returner this season.
Thu, 16 Jan 2014 19:11:21 -0800
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle could be helped by offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's system because it uses a lot of quick slants and back-shoulder throws in the passing game. Randle also likely will receive a lot of playing time because the team is expected to use three-receiver sets.
Mon, 30 Dec 2013 09:27:56 -0800

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle wants to show he can be an NFL starter with WR Victor Cruz (knee) out. "I am trying," Randle said. "I don't know if I have [shown that yet] or not. That is definitely the case that I am trying to prove."
Fri, 20 Dec 2013 16:46:26 -0800
New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Jerrel Jernigan (knee) will see more opportunities in the final two regular season games with WR Victor Cruz (knee) done for the season. Randle has already had success this year, scoring six touchdowns through 14 games after scoring three all of last year. He has 37 grabs for 571 yards. Jernigan is questionable for Week 16 against the Detroit Lions but said he was "feeling all right." Jernigan, who had seven catches for 57 yards last week, would likely replace Cruz in the slot position.
Fantasy Tip: Randle will see plenty of attention from the Detroit Lions secondary with Cruz out, but he could be plenty useful as a WR3 or flex in Week 16. Jernigan is more of a shot in the dark.
Thu, 19 Dec 2013 09:33:55 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (concussion, knee) is not participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 19.
Fantasy Tip: With Cruz missing practice again, it is becoming even less likely he will play. Hakeem Nicks, Jerrel Jernigan, and Rueben Randle would all likely see more work as a result.
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 12:26:47 -0800
The New York Giants may consider placing WR Victor Cruz (knee, concussion) on Injured Reserve because of his knee injury and concussion. If he is placed on IR, WR Rueben Randle likely would become the No. 2 wide receiver with WR Jerrel Jernigan being the No. 3 wide receiver.
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 10:24:27 -0800
New York Giants WR Victor Cruz (knee, concussion) is not practicing Wednesday, Dec. 18, and head coach Tom Coughlin said Cruz's knee "will probably prevent (Cruz) from doing anything." The Giants are more concerned with his knee than his concussion.
Fantasy Tip: It's looking like a long shot that Cruz will play this weekend against the Detroit Lions. Upgrade Reuben Randle and Hakeem Nicks in your weekly rankings. Randle has more upside for championship week.
Sun, 15 Dec 2013 19:32:02 -0800
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle did not have a catch in the Week 15 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Mon, 21 Oct 2013 21:06:21 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle had just three receptions for 40 yards in the Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings Monday, Oct. 21, but he was able to reel in a 24-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter.
Fantasy Tip: There weren't many fantasy stars in this ugly game, but Randle at least made his owners happy with the score. He remains nothing more than a WR3/4 or flex play in leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.
Mon, 14 Oct 2013 15:19:47 -0700
The New York Giants are not currently shopping WR Hakeem Nicks on the trade block, according to a source with knowledge of the team's plans.
Fantasy Tip: If Nicks is traded, Reuben Randle will have significant value and would probably be a must-start in most fantasy football leagues. Randle has value as a WR3 or 4 right now in deeper leagues.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 13:05:20 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle (ribs) left the Week 3 game with a ribs injury.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 11:36:35 -0700
New York Giants special teams coordinator Tom Quinn said the team's competition for the punt returner job is wide open. Quinn mentioned WR Rueben Randle, CB Jayron Hosley, WR Jerrel Jernigan, WR Kevin X. Hardy, FS Laron Scott and CB Charles James as candidates for the role.
Sun, 11 Aug 2013 18:21:01 -0700
New York Giants WRs Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Rueben Randle, Louis Murphy and Jerrel Jernigan are expected to be the team's top five wideouts. After that, there is a battle between Ramses Barden, Keith Carlos, Kevin X. Hardy and Julian Talley for the sixth receiver job, if the team elects to keep that many. WR Kris Adams (leg) was in the mix for the No. 6 job, but he fractured a leg in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers Saturday, Aug. 10.
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 18:16:39 -0700
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin praised WR Rueben Randle Monday, July 29, saying he made some outstanding plays in practice. "(Randle's) made some outstanding plays and today he had a couple that were almost, that would've been nice plays," Coughlin said.
Wed, 24 Jul 2013 09:53:56 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle turned heads during the offseason program, and he is ready for a bigger role in the offense behind WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. However, Randle is not locked into the third receiver job yet, as he needs to hold off WRs Ramses Barden, Jerrel Jernigan and Louis Murphy, among others.
Fantasy Tip: Randle has the most upside of any of the competitors for the No. 3 job, and with a good season he could make the injury-prone Nicks expendable after this season. For fantasy purposes, Randle is a nice later round addition on draft day. He is potentially just more Nicks injury or setback away from starting.
Mon, 08 Jul 2013 11:11:38 -0700
New York Giants WRs Rueben Randle and Louis Murphy are expected to compete for the No. 3 wide receiver job during training camp.
Fri, 05 Jul 2013 11:51:02 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle and CB Aaron Ross could be candidates for the punt returner job during training camp.
Thu, 13 Jun 2013 15:50:05 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle became QB Eli Manning's primary target during the absences of WRs Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz, who's still not at camp because of contract discussions. "His whole demeanor, his whole professionalism was outstanding," offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride said of Randle. "Not only did he grow, he kind of became the bell cow of the receiving corps. ... Oh, he's gonna play. He's gonna play a lot [in 2013]." Randle's versatility in where to line up should help his playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Let's wait until later this summer before we bolster Randle's stock significantly, but his late-rounds-flyer status looks to be pretty solid as of today.
Thu, 06 Jun 2013 14:40:08 -0700
New York Giants QB Eli Manning praised WR Rueben Randle. "A lot of times that second year you have a better feel for what's going on, what his assignments are and the ins and outs of the offense," Manning said as the Giants wrapped up OTAs. "He's confident out there. He's got a great skill set. I think he's had a great spring. I think he's done a lot of good things, made a lot of plays for us and I think he can be a great playmaker for us this year."
Fri, 31 May 2013 06:36:11 -0700
Updating a previous report, New York Giants WR Rueben Randle said he knows how important the extra reps he is getting during organized team activities are because it gives him more time to work with QB Eli Manning and show the coaches what he can do. "I'm a lot more confident in what I do," he said. "Going out there and making more plays, understanding the offense and more on the same page with Eli. And also, getting more trust from the coaches, and going out there and getting more reps so I can show my ability more."
Thu, 30 May 2013 13:57:55 -0700
New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is impressing at organized team activities. Randle has lined up with the first team due to WRs Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks not attending practices. "He's moving in that direction," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "He certainly has had many, many opportunities, and if there's a guy that really has a chance to step his game up and really show what he can do, it's happening right now for Rueben."
Wed, 29 May 2013 09:53:54 -0700
New York Giants WR Louis Murphy has stood out in OTAs so far. He was given plenty of deep routes in a recent workout. Head coach Tom Coughlin said he'll have a better impression of Rueben Randle after several more practice days.
Fantasy Tip: Targets among secondary NYG WRs could often produce solid fill-in weeks to account for byes or injuries, and Murphy looks primed to be the main option for a dice roll among the group. However, shifting gameplans will most likely make speculating on someone beneath Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Myers a frustrating weekly gambit.
