Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan said the team plans to use Rueben Randle in the slot more over the final nine weeks of the season with Victor Cruz (knee) done for the year.
"The other guy that can do certain things in the slot for us is Reuben because he's smart and he's a big target in the middle of the field," Ryan said. Randle is averaging nearly 10 targets per game the past five weeks, and is the No. 23 overall PPR-scoring wide receiver over the past six. Getting him in the slot is just another way to get the ball in his hands. At 6'3/210, he's a mismatch for smaller nickel corners. Randle has picked up his play and put himself into WR2 consideration. We're just waiting for that "boom" game. Oct 22 - 10:40 AM

Rueben Randle caught six passes for 74 yards in Sunday's Week 7 loss at Dallas.

Randle had one tough third-down drop and couldn't come down with a goal-line fade, but he had a strong game. Most importantly, he was on the same page with Eli Manning throughout, even completing a pretty back-shoulder throw. Randle's touchdown rate is sure to rise going forward (he has two TDs in seven games so far), but the immediate schedule is difficult: Bye, vs. IND, at SEA, vs. SF.
Oct 19 - 7:53 PM

Rueben Randle caught five passes for 58 yards in Sunday night's Week 6 loss to the Eagles.

He was targeted a team-high nine times. The Giants couldn't do anything in the pass game with their offensive line struggles, and were shut out by the Eagles. With Victor Cruz out for the season, Randle has a promising going-forward outlook. He's locked in as the No. 1 receiver, with Odell Beckham replacing Cruz in two-wide sets. Randle will be on the WR2 radar against the Cowboys in Week 7.
Oct 13 - 1:11 AM

Rueben Randle caught four balls for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 5 win over the Falcons.

The final stats are decent, but Randle had a rough game. He was very inefficient with his team-high 10 targets, dropping two passes and showing suspect ball security. Still, the targets are highly promising for his going-forward outlook; Randle has double digits in three consecutive games. He'll remain an upside WR3 when the Giants take on a weak Eagles secondary in Week 6.
Oct 5 - 4:26 PM

Rueben Randle caught 8-of-10 targets for 89 yards in the Giants' Week 4 win over the Redskins.

Randle was inches from two touchdowns, but continues to have tough luck near the end zone. One of Randle's missed targets was a pass he caught for a score, only to have it speared out of his hands by a helmet before he "completed the catch." Randle's final grab was a 21-yarder where he was tackled at the two-yard line. Inexplicably, Larry Donnell caught three of Eli Manning's four scores. The good news is, Randle is finally on the same page with Eli, and operating well within the flow of the Giants' new offense. There's WR2 hope for him yet.
Sep 26 - 12:31 AM

Rueben Randle caught five passes for 27 yards in the Giants' Week 3 win over the Texans.

Randle was targeted a team-high ten times, and the chemistry between he and Eli Manning appears to be growing. But Randle is seeing mostly short passes. He did see one end-zone look, but got tangled up with the Houston cornerback and couldn't make the one-handed catch. Randle gets the DeAngelo Hall-less Redskins on Thursday night. He's a boom-or-bust WR3/4.
Sep 21 - 6:03 PM

Rueben Randle secured 4-of-7 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

Although it was nice to see Randle get going and more involved in the offense -- he beat Patrick Peterson on a red-zone fade for his touchdown catch -- the Giants couldn't get him the football in the second half, and Randle bobbled away a would-be critical fourth-quarter reception. Randle will enter Week 3 against the Texans as no more than a boom-or-bust WR3 option.
Sep 14 - 4:05 PM

Rueben Randle said there were times he felt like he was open in Monday night's loss to the Lions.

Randle finished with two catches for one yard on three targets. Eli Manning looked toward plodding tight end Larry Donnell (eight targets) and undersized No. 3 wideout Jerrel Jernigan (seven targets) far more often than his playmaking 6-foot-3 No. 2 man. "I can only control what I can control," Randle said afterward. "There were opportunities there, but like I said, my job is to run the route that is called and get open." With the Giants entire offense off the rails, Randle will be a very touchdown-dependent WR3. Sunday's matchup against Patrick Peterson and the Cardinals is not ideal.
Sep 9 - 12:07 PM

Rueben Randle caught two passes for a measly one yard in the Giants' Week 1 loss to the Lions on Monday night.

Randle finished the night fifth on the Giants with his three targets. It's a concern, but we're obviously not ready to throw in the towel on Randle's breakout season. Randle looks like he might be a slow learner, and those concerns were raised in the pre-draft process. He admitted after the preseason that he and Eli Manning were still not on the same page in new OC Ben McAdoo's offense. Randle is a boom-or-bust WR3 until further notice.
Sep 8 - 11:26 PM

Rueben Randle admitted he and Eli Manning continue to struggle with timing and aren't on the same page.

Coach Tom Coughlin called an incompletion between Manning and Randle the worst play of the Giants' preseason finale, saying "There is no place for that." Randle and Eli struggled with their communication last season. Now it's timing. It's been going on all summer in practice, and Randle admits he needs to get his head around faster. Randle will be a boom-or-bust WR3 early on.
Aug 29 - 10:05 AM

Giants coach Tom Coughlin opened his Saturday press conference by praising third-year WR Rueben Randle.

Randle ran a sharp route on his 15-yard touchdown catch Friday night against the Jets, and displayed impressive body control on a 26-yard strike along the sideline. He's the Giants' best hope for big plays this season. Randle remains a value pick at his mid-ninth-round ADP. He's the No. 2 option in the passing game, and at 6'3/210 should be the clear No. 1 on red-zone throws.
Aug 23 - 4:29 PM

Rueben Randle caught 2-of-4 targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Friday's regular-season dress rehearsal.

He was a bright spot for the dysfunctional Giants, showing excellent body control on a 26-yard catch near the sideline before running an excellent route on his 15-yard score. Almost certainly done for the preseason, the Giants' only legitimate red-zone threat finishes with three catches for 53 yards and a score. Currently the WR42, Randle is a value pick in fantasy leagues.
Aug 22 - 9:51 PM

Rueben Randle started, but was not targeted in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game against the Bills.

Victor Cruz was not targeted by Eli Manning, either. Jerrel Jernigan was the only wideout Manning targeted, beyond screens to Rashad Jennings and hookups with TEs Daniel Fells and Larry Donnell. Randle has the most breakout potential in New York's wideout corps, but the Giants need to get their offensive line fixed in order for him to deliver. The O-Line played poorly Sunday night. Randle did set an impressive downfield block on Andre Williams' 21-yard run.
Aug 3 - 9:26 PM

Rueben Randle saw a lot of red-zone looks during Thursday's practice.

As beat writer Jordan Raanan notes, it's "something we should probably get used to." At 6'3/208, Randle towers over fellow wideouts Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham. He's also shown strong catch-point ability in his career, making plenty of contested catches on his way to nine touchdowns on 60 receptions.
Aug 1 - 9:10 AM

According to the New York Daily News, the "stage is set" for a Rueben Randle breakout in 2014.

With Hakeem Nicks out of the picture, Randle is starting opposite Victor Cruz. It sounds like the Giants plan to frequently throw the ball up to him in contested situations in the red zone and downfield. "I’ve got to play big," Randle said of his new role. "They’re going to allow me to do that. My job is to make that big play, whether it be in the end zone or down the field." Randle said he's "very confident" he'll score "double-digits in touchdowns." At 6'3/208, Randle projects as the main red-zone beneficiary with the Giants severely lacking talent at tight end. With an ADP in the ninth round, Randle is a tremendous value.
