Giants beat writer Dan Graziano: ...it was nice for the Giants to see Rueben Randle cap off Friday night's first-half touchdown drive with that 15-yard touchdown catch from Eli Manning. Randle is a key component of what they need to do on offense this season. As of right now, he's the most established threat they have on the outside with Victor Cruz in the slot... If they can truly count on Randle to play well and be consistent, that's a massive help. For me, he's miscast in this new offense, since he's more of a vertical threat and they want to operate in short range. But if he can use his size to create separation quickly and win his matchups, he could be a major factor. We haven't seen enough this preseason to know which way to bet on that.
We're fairly bullish on Randle's upside in the offense provided Eli Manning and Co. can get in sync. It has been a struggle so far this preseason, but the team showed some signs of life this week.
