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.
Dec 12 - 9:54 AM

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.
Dec 7 - 5:50 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.
Dec 2 - 9:18 AM

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.
Nov 30 - 5:17 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.
Nov 24 - 1:28 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.
Nov 16 - 4:33 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.
Nov 9 - 8:20 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.
Nov 4 - 12:52 AM

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.
