The Newark Star-Ledger's Jordan Raanan noted Rueben Randle was the best Giants receiver on the field "by a wide margin" during spring practices.
Of course, Odell Beckham (hamstring) and Victor Cruz (knee) didn't participate, so it would have been a concern if Randle wasn't the best receiver out there. But by all accounts, Randle has taken a big step forward after getting benched on two separate occasions last year. Eli Manning has already predicted a breakout year for Randle. Playing in a fast offense, Randle will be a WR3/4 to own as a big-bodied target on the outside and a preferred option in the red zone. Jun 24 - 9:12 AM

Eli Manning believes Rueben Randle will have a breakout season as a fourth-year pro.

"I think Rueben’ll have a big year," Manning said. "I think Rueben can be a great receiver, a dominant receiver." Randle quietly set career highs in catches (71) and yards (938) last season, but frustrated fantasy owners by only scoring three TDs. "You’ve definitely seen him from Day 1 to Day Now, just the maturity level is definitely improved," added Eli. "He’s all in, he’s been here working, he’s been here off days, and so I've been impressed with his commitment." Still only 24 years old, Randle qualifies as an intriguing post-hype sleeper in 2015 drafts.
Jun 11 - 12:56 PM projects Rueben Randle as the Giants' No. 2 receiver this season, ahead of rehabbing Victor Cruz.

Although his efficiency was lacking and his TD total (3) disappointed in 2014, Randle posted career highs in catches (71) and yards (938) and finished strong with Weeks 16-17 stat lines of 6-132-1 and 6-158. Still only 24 years old, Randle remains an ascending player and could end up as a late-round value pick in 2015 fantasy drafts if Cruz experiences any setbacks.
May 6 - 10:47 AM

Despite some run-ins with coach Tom Coughlin, Rueben Randle remains a part of the Giants' plans.

Randle was targeted 127 times in 2014, second-most on the team. But he produced just 71 catches for 938 yards and three touchdowns -- and also got benched twice for showing up late to meetings. Still, the Giants aren't going to give up on a 23-year-old talent who can really stretch the field. Randle won't get as many looks if Victor Cruz (knee) returns healthy to pair with Odell Beckham in 2015, but Randle will still be a factor as the No. 3 man.
Feb 24 - 9:58 AM

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 158 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Randle was one of fantasy's bigger disappointments this season, frustrating owners with one 100-yard game in the first 14 weeks and frustrating the Giants coaches by being late to meetings. But he showed his front-line ability over the final two weeks, going 6-132-1 against the Rams in Week 15 and then doing it again against the Eagles. Randle's 2015 contract-year outlook would be brighter if Victor Cruz (knee) wasn't expected to make a full recovery and operate in two-wide sets with Odell Beckham. They'll still be room for Randle to get his though as OC Ben McAdoo prefers to operate out of a three-wide formation.

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 132 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 win at St. Louis.

For the first time in three weeks, Randle wasn't late for a team meeting and therefore wasn't benched for the first quarter. It was a good thing, as Eli Manning chucked him a jump ball 49 yards down the field which he came down with early and then got loose to the pylon in the third quarter for a seven-yard score. It's a reminder that when Randle's head is on straight, he can be a plus wideout in the league. That's rarely the case however, as evidenced by just two 100-yard games and three touchdowns all year.

Rueben Randle caught two passes for 30 yards in Week 15 against the Redskins.

Randle was benched in the first quarter for the second time in three games. He still managed to finish behind only Odell Beckham with four targets and remains the No. 2 option. Randle will be just a WR4 in Week 16.

Giants OC Ben McAdoo admits Rueben Randle has "been a little bit streaky" this season.

"Some days better than others," McAdoo continued. "We have a lot of confidence in him and expect him to continue to grow, get better. He’s still a young player and we feel his best days are ahead of him." Classic coachspeak. Randle has taken a back seat in the passing game since Odell Beckham's emergence and hasn't seen more than four targets in a game the past three weeks. He's also losing snaps to Preston Parker, Kevin Ogletree, and Corey Washington. Early-season volume made Randle a WR3, but he's now settled in as a mere WR4.

Rueben Randle caught one pass for nine yards in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Titans.

He was targeted just three times, which was fewer than Odell Beckham, Larry Donnell, Preston Parker, and Andre Williams. Randle had a fine matchup, but split looks with Parker and Kevin Ogletree behind Beckham at receiver. He's fallen into WR4 range. Beckham is the clear-cut No. 1 receiver.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 05:50:00 PM's Jordan Raanan notes that Rueben Randle wasn't the first one to be late for a meeting this year, but was the first one to be benched for it.

It's interesting because it suggests there's more going on with Randle behind the scenes. Remember that this is a player who frustrated coaches by his inability to grasp the Kevin Gilbride scheme last year and is so often the target of Eli Manning's interceptions. It's possible Randle has made a habit of being late to meetings, or perhaps Tom Coughlin wanted to send a message to his 23-year-old receiver. Regardless, expect Randle to be back in the starting lineup for Sunday's Week 14 game at Tennessee.

Rueben Randle had three catches for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

Randle was benched in the first quarter for being late to a team meeting on Friday. He finished with just four targets, and continues to be a non-factor in the red-zone. Randle won't be more than low-end WR3 despite a matchup with the Titans in Week 14.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:17:00 PM

Rueben Randle had three catches for 36 yards in Week 12 against the Cowboys.

With Eli Manning locked on to Odell Beckham, Randle was targeted just three times. He's behind both Beckham and Larry Donnell in the red-zone and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5. Randle isn't more than a low-end WR3 going forward.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 01:28:00 AM

Rueben Randle caught seven passes for a career-high 112 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the 49ers.

Just about all of Randle's catches came on the same play -- a deep "in" route that the 49ers defense simply couldn't cover. Of course, Randle was targeted on two of Eli Manning's five interceptions and had repeated miscommunications with his quarterback once again. He also left the game for a stretch in the second half due to cramping. We wouldn't go chasing Randle as anything more than a weak WR3 against the Cowboys in Week 12.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 04:33:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught five passes for 39 yards in Sunday's Week 10 loss at Seattle.

Odell Beckham Jr. actually saw more of Richard Sherman than Randle. Yet Beckham was once again the one opening eyes with plays and showing far more chemistry with Eli Manning. Randle has now caught just nine of his last 21 targets and hasn't scored since Week 5. He'll be a weak WR3 against the 49ers in Week 11 -- Beckham is the No. 1 wideout for the Giants now.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 08:20:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught four passes for 49 yards in the Giants' Week 9 loss to the Colts on Monday night.

Randle and Odell Beckham each saw a team-high 11 targets, but Randle was locked up in Vontae Davis' coverage for much of the night. He also dropped a pass in the red zone on third down, forcing the Giants to settle for a field goal. Midway through the season, Randle is on pace for a 76-740-4 on 134 targets. That'd be a major disappointment on such a high target total. Only 14 receivers saw 134-plus targets in 2013, and 13 of them had 1,000-yard seasons. Randle is an inconsistent WR3. He'll dance with Richard Sherman and the Seahawks in Seattle next week.
