Eagles Beat: Rueben Randle could be second on team in targets

Sunday, July 10, 2016, 9:03am - [Full Article]

Rueben Randle is the most accomplished receiver on the Eagles' roster, and was brought in to be a safety net for the younger players. Despite missing a portion of OTAs due to surgery, it wouldn't be surprising to see Randle be the receiver with the most targets this season outside of Jordan Matthews.

Fantasy Impact:

Matthews will likely remain in the slot for most of his snaps and can create mismatches with his size, but on the outside, it wouldn't be shocking to see Randle ahead of second-year player Nelson Agholor. Inconsistent Josh Huff projects to be the fourth guy with Chris Givens fifth. Randle is only 85th on our list but is getting some late-round attention in drafts for just this reason.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard 'will get every opportunity' to win WR2 job

Second-round wide receiver Sterling Shepard is in the best position to make a significant impact. The Giants targeted him early in the draft process as a wideout they liked, and coach Ben McAdoo sees him as a player he can use all over the formation in a variety of roles as a complement to star Odell Beckham Jr. With Rueben Randle gone and Victor Cruz still a major question mark as he attempts his comeback from knee and calf injuries, there's an opening for a No. 2 wide receiver in New York. Shepard will get every opportunity to lock down the role for the short and long term, and he has the skill set to do it.

Fantasy Impact:

The only thing standing in the way of a major role for Shepard is Cruz and his balky knee and calf. If Cruz looks like his old self, then the Giants will probably let Shepard grow into a larger role, but if Cruz doesn't have a great offseason then Shepard will be thrust into a major role immediately. He could fill the Randall Cobb role in Ben McAdoo's offense.

New Eagles WR Rueben Randle passed up multi-year deals from other teams because he felt Philadelphia provided the best chance for success.

"I felt like it was a better opportunity for me here to showcase my talents on a one-year deal to go out there and prove myself," Randle said. "It's a new start for everyone, new coaching staff, new start for me as well."

Even though the 6-2, 208-pound Randle is only 24 years old, he along with another new addition in Chris Givens are the most experienced receivers on the team.
"I can come out here and help those guys be better players. It's not all about me," Randle said. "I'm willing to help my teammates out and get those guys better as well so with my veteran presence I can lead the group a little bit and maybe get some things started here in the receiving corps."

Fantasy Impact:

Randle started all 16 games for the first time in his career in 2015. He expects to do so again now with the Eagles. Jordan Matthews is expected to remain a slot receiver so Randle will compete with Givens and Nelson Agholor for spots on the outside.

Eagles sign WR Rueben Randle

For the first time in his NFL career, Rueben Randle won't be wearing a Giants uniform. After four years in New York, the free agent receiver is jumping ship for a division rival.

The 24-year-old agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Eagles on Wednesday, the team announced. Randle's agent, Vincent Taylor, told that the deal includes $500,000 in guaranteed money and can be worth up to $3 million if Randle meets all of his incentives.

Before the Eagles added Randle on Wednesday, new coach Doug Pederson had mentioned that Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews would be the top two outside receivers heading into OTAs. If that doesn't change, Randle will likely compete against Josh Huff for playing time at the No. 3 receiver spot.

Fantasy Impact:

Randle will likely compete with Josh Huff for WR3 duties, but he could push the unimpressive Nelson Agholor for snaps as the team's WR2. Randle has largely been a fantasy disappointment, but he did finish as the #28 WR (standard) in 2015 and #37 the year before.

Hakeem Nicks could see more work with no OBJ

Saturday, December 26, 2015, 11:45am - [Full Article]

Odell Beckham Jr.’s bright star has been temporarily eclipsed, but the other Giants receivers are confident they will shine in his absence.

Without him, Eli Manning will look to the other wideouts, including Rueben Randle, Dwayne Harris, Hakeem Nicks, Myles White, and perhaps rookies Geremy Davis and Ben Edwards, who joined the active roster this week.

“We’ll be fine,” the always-calm Manning said. “We’ve got guys; (it’s a) great opportunity for other guys to step up. We’ll run our offense and go about our business. The guys know what they’re doing, guys know the routes, guys know how to get open, and we’ll go about it and make plays.”

Fantasy Impact:

The aforementioned receivers have totaled 97 receptions for 859 yards, and 10 scores, the story said. The article went on to say perhaps the most intriguing receiver in the group is Nicks, the former first-round draft choice who returned to the Giants Nov. 17. He has caught one pass in each of the four games in which he’s played. But without Beckham at his disposal, Manning could look to the player who has caught more of his passes than any other, the story said. It's not the first time we've heard this, as the beat writers mentioned Nicks as a guy who could see a lot more work because Harris is dealing with a shoulder issue.

Giants Beat: Hakeem Nicks could fill in for OBJ

New York Post

They may not have Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday. But the Giants still have a pivotal game to play against the Vikings in Minnesota.

And that just might give an old star receiver a chance to rekindle the magic he had in his first go-round in East Rutherford. With Beckham almost certain to sit out on Sunday, Hakeem Nicks seems likely to assume his role.

Nicks, who was signed in mid-November, has gradually seen his snap count increase, and in last Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, while Beckham was running wild, Nicks was playing a season-high 37 snaps and functioning as the Giants’ third receiver. He could find himself starting and playing opposite Rueben Randle against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact:

While Dwayne Harris would seem like the next man up as the team's WR2 opposite of Randle, the story said Harris is dealing with a shoulder injury.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning almost always pins the blame for any interception or loss on himself, and you very rarely see him question the play of one of his teammates. After throwing an interception on a target to wide receiver Rueben Randle for a second week in a row, Manning dropped a subtle hint that he was not pleased with Randle's effort on the critical fourth down play late in the fourth quarter of the team's Week 13 loss to the New York Jets.

“It was the play we had run earlier in the year, we’ve had great success with it,” Manning said in his Monday meeting with the media. “They covered it well the way they tried to pass it off, the safety came down, and I would’ve had to work a second window or come back to my back on a route. But they got pressure, and I didn’t have that luxury.

"Still thought I could maybe hit Rueben (Randle) just kind of running by. The defender wasn’t looking at me, he was looking at Rueben. I thought Rueben could run by him and still possibly make the catch or get an interference call. Didn’t work out that way, though.”

Fantasy Impact:

Randle did not run through his route and by the defender. Instead, he stopped his route, and with nowhere to throw the football, Manning forced a pass that was intercepted, the story said. The two weren't on the same page for the longest time early last year, but those issues seemed to go away when the offense started to turn around late last season.

Giants WR Rueben Randle (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 9. Randle isn’t 100%, but we’re still expecting him to play through the injury against the Bucs. If he’s out, Dwayne Harris should be peppered with targets as he serves as Odell Beckham’s sidekick.

Week 6 MNF Injury Report: Beckham questionable; Agholor out

Saturday, October 17, 2015, 4:40pm


Giants (New York conducted a walk through on Saturday. The Saturday practice report is an estimation.)
CB Prince Amukamara (pectoral), WR Victor Cruz (calf), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring)

DE Robert Ayers (hamstring), LB Jon Beason (concussion), WR Odell Beckham (hamstring), LB Jonathan Casillas (calf), CB Trumaine McBride (groin, illness)

G Justin Pugh (ankle), WR Rueben Randle (hamstring), DE George Selvie (calf)

WR Nelson Agholor (ankle), LB Kiko Alonso (knee), DE Brandon Bair (groin), LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring)

RB Ryan Mathews (groin)

Fantasy Impact:

Odell Beckham didn't practice this week but is listed as questionable so his status is in doubt for Week 6. The team says he's coming along, however, and indications this week have been he's got a chance to play, but it's a situation to monitor especially since Beckham didn't practice. Rueben Randle is listed as probable so he could be a nice backup option for Beckham owners who are planning to wait it out. For the Eagles, Nelson Agholor is out. Agholor plays on a lot of snaps so it's a chance for Riley Cooper and Miles Austin to get more chances. Ryan Mathews is also questionable and that could be good news for owners of DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles who would see more time if Mathews is limited our unable to play.

Friday, October 16, 2015, 6:15pm

Giants WR Rueben Randle (hamstring) took limited practice reps again Friday. Barring a setback, Randle is expected to play in Week 6.
