Rueben Randle WR NYG 6 Days

Randle caught eight passes for 89 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's 45-14 win over the Redskins.

Randle mostly played a nice game while recording 10 targets for a second straight week. However, he also just barely missed out on a touchdown, as he grabbed a pass in the end zone during the third quarter, only to have it knocked out of his hands and into a defender's by the helmet of Washington safety Brandon Meriweather. While Randle's level of involvement in the offense is encouraging, he didn't do much with his targets before Thursday, and the Giants finally figure to have first-round rookie WR Odell Beckham (hamstring) for Week 5 or 6.

Randle caught five of his 10 targets for 27 yards Sunday.

Despite the quiet day he actually led the team in targets. The Giants offense looked a lot smoother in Week 3, and if that continues Randle should have a breakout game before long.

Randle had four catches on seven targets for 39 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Cardinals.

Randle was much busier Sunday after posting two catches for one yard in Week 1 against the Lions. His touchdown came on a seven-yard jump ball that got the Giants on the board in the second quarter, and his good size will keep him as a popular red zone target for quarterback Eli Manning. Up next is a tough matchup against the Texans in Week 3.

Randle had two catches for one yard on three targets in Monday's 35-14 loss to the Lions.

Randle and Victor Cruz combined for just four catches and nine targets, while third receiver Jerel Jernigan caught 4-of-7 targets for 25 yards in an unimpressive performance. The only Giants to produce in the passing game were TE Larry Donnell (5-56-1) and RB Rashad Jennings (4-50-0). Eli Manning continued the trend from last year and this preseason, struggling throughout Monday's game. Randle still has appeal as the tallest regular wide receiver in what should be a pass-oriented offense, but he's no better than second fiddle to Cruz, and thus needs the team as a whole to get on track. Also worth considering is that Odell Beckham (hamstring) will eventually join the mix. If Randle doesn't show up soon, his opportunities may start to evaporate.

Randle caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Jets.

With Odell Beckham (hamstring) yet to play this preseason, and Jerel Jernigan struggling, Randle seems like a safe bet to work across from Victor Cruz in two-wide formations at the beginning of the season. The Giants don't figure to throw many passes to their tight ends, so the wideout group should see plenty of targets. As easily the largest player of that group, Randle has a nice opportunity to make frequent visits to the end zone.

Randle has looked good early in camp, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Randle is using his size, speed and length to gain separation and make plays in practice. With Odell Beckham still nursing a hamstring injury, Randle is the early favorite to be the team's No. 2 target. He's also their only significant red-zone presence.

Randle started Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against the Bills, but he did not receive any targets.

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. Randle is primed to explode. With an ADP in the ninth round, Randle is a tremendous value.

The New York Daily News writes Rueben Randle "seems the favorite to start" opposite Victor Cruz in two-wide set.

Randle "seems the favorite to start" over rookie Odell Beckham. The Giants are expected to essentially run a base three-wide offense under new OC Ben McAdoo, but "starting" in two-wide formations could mean the difference between playing 95 percent of the snaps, and 65-70. It's certainly worth noting. Beckham missed time during OTAs with a hamstring issue, giving Randle an edge.

Giants WRs coach Sean Ryan says the team saw a more focused Rueben Randle during the spring.

"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." The switch to a simpler offensive system that doesn't rely as heavily on option routes should also help Randle. He's going to line up all over the field, even in the slot. Entering his third year, Randle is oozing with WR2 upside.
