Giants say Rueben Randle can 'definitely' be the team's WR2

New York Daily News - [Full Article]

Giants WR Rueben Randle, who spent two years miscommunicating with Eli Manning in the worst possible moments, enjoyed a solid camp, and receivers coach Sean Ryan said he “definitely” can serve as the team’s No. 2 receiver behind Victor Cruz.

Randle caught a beautiful deep TD pass from Manning on the second day of minicamp, and he said he finds Ben McAdoo’s new playbook “easier.”

“That battle with him is consistency,” Ryan said. “And I think he’s addressed it in this offseason in the way he approaches his job.”

It’s a transition the Giants needed Randle to make. Jerrel Jernigan and first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. could also be options, but neither offers the physicality that the 6-2 Randle brings.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hakeem Nicks is gone, but the Giants drafted Odell Beckham in the 1st round. New OC Ben McAdoo utilizes a lot of three-WR sets (a la the Packers), so Randle should see starter’s snaps. He has been productive in his first two seasons on a per target basis, so he should produce starter-caliber numbers in significant playing time.
