Rueben Randle surfaces in Chicago, signs with Bears

The Chicago Bears have signed free agent wide receiver Rueben Randle to a reserves/ futures contract Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Randle spent the 2016 season unemployed after being released by the wide receiver-needy Eagles in the preseason. He worked out for the Saints and Bears at different points of the year, but he was never signed. Randle was likely brought in by the Bears to serve as a body for OTAs and training camp and will have to play mistake and drop free football in order to make a roster next season.

Rueben Randle released by Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have released WR Rueben Randle on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Randle seemingly played his way out of Philadelphia during his short offseason tenure with the club. The veteran wideout caught 20 touchdowns during his four-year career with the Giants, however, he had an unimpressive showing in spring and summer workouts that all but caused his release from the Eagles. Randle could be scooped up quickly by a wide receiver needy team like the Rams.

Rueben Randle deemed an 'embarrassment' on Thursday night

Philadelphia Eagles beat writer Jimmy Kempski described WR Rueben Randle's performance in Thursday night's preseason opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an "embarrassment." Kempski further stated that Randle failed to block and "barely ran routes" in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

Randle is currently projected to begin the regular season as the No. 4 wide receiver on the Philadelphia Eagles. Randle has struggled in camp and had a horrid performance in the preseason opener according to beat writer Jimmy Kempski. Randle is the veteran of the group and aside from Jordan Mathews, is the only wideout on the Eagles who has decent NFL production in his career. Philadephia has a plethora of question marks at the receiver position in 2016 and Randle could eventually emerge as the leading fantasy scorer of the group at the end of the campaign.

Rueben Randle starts in opener

Rueben Randle started the Eagles' preseason opener against the Buccaneers, recording only a single catch for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

Randle and the rest of the Eagles' receivers looked rusty and underwhelming. Randle has a chance to be a starter in the Eagles' offense that could see Jordan Matthews more in the slot than anywhere else.

Rueben Randle to be the No. 2 wide receiver in Philadelphia?

Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com is suggesting that Rueben Randle will enter the 2016 season as the No. 2 wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Rueben Randle was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the offseason to be their No. 3 receiver. Entering training camp, however, Randle could move up a spot on the depth chart into the No. 2 role lining up opposite Jordan Matthews. Nelson Agholor was the favorite for the job but an off the field incident and an underwhelming minicamp could have dropped down his value with the club even further than it was after a dismal rookie season in 2015. Randle is a proven NFL receiver and if he is, in fact, the starter in Week 1 then consider him a mid-to-low end WR3 for fantasy football purposes. Keep in mind: The Eagles will likely be playing from behind this year which forces them to throw the ball more than usual and pad Randle's stats especially in PPR formats as he will likely garner the opponents weaker cover corner.
