On Monday, GM Jerry Reese publicly demanded that Eli Manning and the Giants' offense needs to be more aggressive in the final 9 games. In light of these "expectations," it's likely the Giants' passing offense will see an uptick in productivity coming out of the bye. Rueben Randle, Odell Beckham and Larry Donnell stand to benefit the most. (Source: nj.com
Fantasy Impact: Randle, already cast into the Giants' WR1 role as a result of the season ending injury to Victor Cruz in Week 6, should likely see an increase in targets going forward. For Week 9, Randle is a solid WR2 play, with WR1 upside, against a Colts secondary which has been playing poorly of late.

Fantasy Impact: Randle was the clear number one option in the Giants passing game. But it was Beckham and Fells who had the touchdowns. Look for better stat lines for Randle in coming weeks. But in the meantime, with the Giants on bye in Week 8, Randle could be a fantastic buy low.

The Giants were able to do very little on offense against the Eagles in the Week 6 shutout loss. Rueben Randle led the Giants with just 58 receiving yards on 5 receptions.
Fantasy Impact: The main story out of the loss was the season ending knee injury suffered by Victor Cruz which took the wind out of the Giants' sails in the 3rd quarter (although they were getting brutally beaten well before the injury). Randle will now step up into the primary WR role for the Giants, with Odell Beckham lining up as the Giants #2 WR. Before the Week 6 loss, the Giants' offense had been clicking so, assuming the offense can get back on track even with the loss of Victor Cruz, Randle sets up as a nice WR2 play for the remainder of the season in all formats.

Rueben Randle continued to serve as an integral part of the Giants' offensive scheme in Week 5, where he led the team with 10 targets. He finished the afternoon with 4 receptions, 33 yards and one TD.
Fantasy Impact: Randle did drop two passes in Week 5, but it is clear he remains an important part of the Giants' offense. Randle remains a solid WR3/Flex play heading into Week 6 at Philadelphia.

Randle had 8 catches for 89 yards and was tied for the team lead in targets with 10 in the Giants blowout win against the Redskins.
Fantasy Impact: Unfortunately for Randle owners, he had a TD knocked out of his hands that turned into an interception unfairly, as he had possession of the ball in the end zone. Still, this was Randle's best game so far of the season in terms of yards and receptions. The Giants seem to have started to click on offense and Randle looks like a WR2/WR3 option moving forward, as the scores will come.

Giants' wide receiver Rueben Randle caught 5 passes for 27 yards on 10 targets in the Giants's Week 3 win over the Houston Texans at MetLife Stadium. (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: Even though he only caught half of his targets, it's inspiring that Eli is continuing to pepper him. Randle could be a sneaky Week 4 start against a Washington secondary that just gave up huge games to Jeremy Maclin and Jordan Matthews.

Rueben Randle caught 4 passes on 7 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Giants Week 2 loss at home to the Cardinals. (Source: NFL.com
Fantasy Impact: Randle wasn't Manning's favorite target (Cruz 10 targets, & Donnell 9), but it's an inspiring stat line from a player whose best games should still be ahead of him this season. Don't rush to the waiver wire, but keep your eye on him.

Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle is frustrated with the offense. He said, "It's frustrating...I can only control what I can control. Just go out there, block and get open and that is what I did tonight." (Source: NJ.com
Fantasy Impact: With the scary defense of the Arizona Cardinals coming to town on Sunday, it could be another long day for the Giants. Randle will be covered by a combination of Patrick Peterson and Antonio Cromartie.

You read that correctly. WR Rueben Randle was held to only 1 yard of offense on 2 catches against Detroit on Monday night.
Fantasy Impact: Randle can serve as, and is expected to be, a red-zone threat if and when the Giants' offense begins to come together this season. With a FantasyPros WR ADP of 43, Randle should continue to be rostered, but until the Giants' passing game begins to come together and show signs of life, he should remain on all fantasy benches.

Fantasy Impact: After the Giants's 5th win of the preseason on Thursday night, coach Tom Coughlin said, "I thought the worst play of the night was the misconnection between Rueben Randle and Eli...There is no place for that." Randle insists that his timing with Eli will improve with more practice. The big receiver is still a viable red-zone threat with significant upside when or if this offense starts to click.

Rueben Randle caught two passes for 41 yards and a TD in Friday's pre-season matchup against the Jets.
Fantasy Impact: Randle will be the Giants number two WR across from Victor Cruz this season and should see a large number of red zone opportunities in the Giants new offense. With a current WR ADP of 42, Randle is potentially a strong value WR play this season, provided the Giants OL comes together and can protect Eli Manning.

Rueben Randle was running with the 1st team, but was not targeted in Sunday's Hall of Fame game win over the Buffalo Bills.
Fantasy Impact: Eli didn't look Randle or Victor Cruz's way on Sunday, instead opting for shorter passes to Jennings, tight ends, and Jernigan in the slot. The Giants's offensive line is something to monitor going forward. If it doesn't improve, Randle's role could be hit hardest for fantasy impact in the passing game.
