The Newark Star-Ledger doesn't envision the Giants re-signing impending free agent Rueben Randle.
Beat writer James Kratch isn't sure if the Giants even want Randle back, but he also suspects Randle will get more money from another team than the Giants will be willing to pay. Randle seemed to frustrate ex-coach Tom Coughlin a great deal, but it's unclear how OC-turned-coach Ben McAdoo felt about the 24-year-old. Randle is entering a market with not much receiver talent available, so it's possible a team drastically overpays him. Feb 5 - 11:01 AM

Rueben Randle caught 4-of-7 targets for 79 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Eagles.

Eli Manning found Randle deep behind the defense for a 45-yard touchdown. Both Randle and Odell Beckham were open on the play. Randle set a new career-high in touchdowns this season with eight, but his catches (57) and yards (797) were both off from his 2014 receiving line of 71-938-3. He continued to be a mistake-prone underachiever this season. At 6'2/208, Randle has size to excel in the red zone, and he doesn't turn 25 until May. Randle is scheduled to become a free agent in March. He's said he'd like to return to the Giants, but it's uncertain if the feeling will be mutual. Randle has talent, but he's been more knucklehead than playmaker through four seasons. Randle should draw plenty of interest from receiver-needy teams, but he's not a No. 1 guy.

Rueben Randle caught 2-of-5 passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 16 loss to the Vikings.

Randle was left wide open on his 72-yard touchdown. He was otherwise shut down, catching only one pass for eight yards. Randle will return to a supporting role behind Odell Beckham for next week's Eagles matchup.

Coach Tom Coughlin named Rueben Randle first when asked whom the Giants will look to for big plays in the absence of Odell Beckham.

"Rueben comes to mind," said Coughlin. Averaging six targets per game this season, beat writer Jordan Raanan anticipates Randle drawing "about eight or nine" on Sunday Night Football against the Vikings. It's a big opportunity for Randle on national TV with two regular season games left in his contract year.

Rueben Randle caught 4-of-5 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Panthers.

The Panthers literally forgot to cover Randle on his first quarter touchdown, leaving him unguarded for a 27-yard score down the left sideline. 4/47/1 is about as good as a Randle line gets. He'll be a WR4/5 against the Vikings in the fantasy finals.

Rueben Randle caught 5-of-6 targets for 58 yards and one touchdown in the Giants' Week 14 win over the Dolphins on Monday night.

All in all, this was probably one of the better games of Randle's four-year career and definitely one of his better ones of this season. He found a soft spot in the Dolphins' zone defense for his six-yard touchdown in the first half, and then made a nice "hands" catch on an outside throw from Eli Manning later. Randle expressed a desire for more opportunities this past week, and the Giants got him involved early. He'll be a WR3 next week at home against 13-0 Carolina.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Rueben Randle should "take more advantage" of his current opportunities instead of complaining about his role.

Randle said this week he was "frustrated" with an role which has produced just one game with more than seven targets this season. As Coughlin correctly pointed out, Randle could demand more work by doing more with the targets he is given. Randle has caught just three of his last 12 targets and is averaging a career-worst 12.7 yards per catch. Not playing well and clearly catching the coaches' ire, it is unlikely Randle sees an expanded role in the final four games of the year.

Rueben Randle admitted that he's "frustrated" with his offensive role.

Randle has started every game in his contract year, but he's only topped seven targets in a game once and is on pace for just a 56-710-5 receiving line after posting a 71-938-3 line last season. "My opportunities have been cut down a little more," Randle said. "Odell [Beckham] is pretty much the prime target for us offensively. ... It’s definitely frustrating." His 1.18 yards per route run is 69th among 83 qualified receivers, behind guys like Cole Beasley and Brian Hartline.

Rueben Randle reeled in two of six targets for 22 yards in the Giants' Week 13 loss to the Jets.

Both receptions came in the second half. Randle has been targeted 12 times over his last two games but only has three catches to show for it. With the fantasy playoffs starting up, Randle won't be an option against the Dolphins next week.
Sun, Dec 6, 2015 06:08:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught 1-of-6 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown Week 12 against the Redskins.

Randle was having a terrible day before hooking up with Eli Manning for a 40-yard score on fourth down late in the game. It was Randle's only catch, and he ended up losing four yards on a lateral play to close out the loss. Randle has been terrible this season, but he sees at least six targets most weeks. That is worth something in deep leagues.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 05:14:00 PM

Rueben Randle caught 3-of-4 targets for 51 yards in the Giants' Week 10 loss to the Patriots.

His four targets were fourth on the team behind Odell Beckham (12), Dwayne Harris (9), and fill-in TE Will Tye (7), and Randle continues to put up mediocre numbers if he isn't scoring a touchdown. Randle has settled in as a low-upside, low-floor WR4. The Giants head into their bye before facing the Redskins.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 08:49:00 PM

Rueben Randle nabbed all five of his targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Giants' Week 9 win over the Buccaneers.

Randle’s eight-yard touchdown in the first quarter marked his first end-zone visit since Week 4 against Buffalo. He’s now recorded five catches in four of his last five games. Randle will find himself in the low-end WR3 range next week against New England.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Rueben Randle (hamstring) will play Sunday against the Buccaneers.

He missed practice on Wednesday but returned to a limited session on Thursday. Randle is on pace for just 768 receiving yards, which is well below the 938 he posted last season. He'll be on the WR3/4 borderline this week at Tampa Bay.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 09:47:00 AM

Rueben Randle (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 9 against the Bucs.

Randle is tentatively expected to play, but the hamstring injury has affected his on-field performance. Even when he's at 100 percent, Randle is nothing more than a boom-bust WR3. He should be downgraded to a WR4/5.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 01:56:00 PM

Rueben Randle (hamstring) got in a "limited" practice on Thursday.

Randle sat out Wednesday's practice and said after the Week 8 loss to the Saints his hamstring is still an issue. Although he was limited Thursday, the practice puts him on track to play. Randle is a weekly WR4 who does carry some touchdown upside.
