Randle caught only one of six targets, a 36-yard touchdown Sunday against the Redskins. Randle was also passive on an Eli Manning interception where the defender was more aggressive in breaking to the ball, and he had a drop. It was a poor game for Randle despite the long touchdown.
Randle caught 3-of-4 targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 27-26 loss to New England. Randle made a nice 31-yard catch at one point, but was otherwise quiet. He hasn't had many big games this year, but he's been a relatively steady contributor, with at least 50 yards or a touchdown in six of 10 games. It'll be interesting to see what Randle's role will be once Victor Cruz (calf) returns, which could happen after the Giants' Week 11 bye.
Randle hauled in five catches off of five targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Randle's touchdown broke a four-game scoreless streak dating back to Week 4. The fourth-year receiver has been a fairly consistent performer for the Giants this season, catching at least three passes in seven of nine games and ranking second on the team in every major receiving category. It will be interesting to see if Randle remains Eli Manning's No. 2 target when and if Victor Cruz makes his return to the lineup in Week 10 or after the bye.
Randle (hamstring) is active for Sunday's contest at Tampa Bay, the Giants' official site reports. Randle's hamstring was likely bothering him more than usual, as he garnered questionable status heading into the Giants' Week 9 tilt, but he'll serve his usual role as the No. 2 option for Eli Manning. With looks all but guaranteed in a pass-heavy attack, Randle could prosper against a Bucs defense that has given up 9.5 YPT and 11 touchdowns to wideouts this season.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicates that Randle (hamstring) is in line to play Sunday against the Buccaneers. Official confirmation of Randle's Week 9 status will arrive in advance of the Giants' 4:05 ET kickoff, but at this stage it looks like the wideout -- who is listed as questionable for the contest -- will be able to give it a go Sunday.
