All three players are on a bye Week 8.
In Beckham's case, not yet. The rookie will be playing in only his third game after missing the first four with a hamstring injury, but as the 12th overall pick in the draft, he obviously has the potential to be an impact player. Let's just see him put together a 50-yard game first.
Randle is a different story because he was already a major part of the passing game before Cruz went down, actually leading the Giants in targets with 49. He's gotten at least nine in each of the last four games.
Of course, he doesn't have the yardage to show for it, so at least in standard leagues (as in non-PPR), he's still an iffy option. He probably will pick up some of Cruz's slack and become a more advisable option across the board, but this isn't the best matchup to test him out. Though the Cowboys rank a modest 12th against the pass, they've allowed the third-fewest Fantasy points per game this season.
Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank Randle right around 30th at wide receiver for this week.
Or at least one of his favorites.
Turns out Cruz wasn't even the Giants' most-targeted receiver through the first six games.
How do the
"What are going to be our best formations? What are going to be our best ways of putting people in position to do what they do best that will help out the team?" Manning told the team's website. "We have to be smart and creative with that and make sure guys, when they are on the field, are going to be able to play fast and know exactly what they are doing."
Coach Tom Coughlin called Cruz "a very, very, positive and popular young man who has meant an awful lot to this franchise. Just by virtue of his work ethic and the fact that he is a Pro Bowl playmaker. It is another test for the team. I was going to say the offensive side of the ball, but really for our team."
Cruz ranked third on the team with 23 catches for 337 yards and a touchdown. The website said
"I think Preston Parker has demonstrated he can play inside, and he can play outside," Coughlin said. "The issue with Preston Parker has been the ball security issue, but as far as his learning multiple positions, he has done that. Corey Washington has played basically on the outside and has done a pretty good job of learning. He practices throughout the week with multiple reps, whatever day it might be. Even in a two-minute drill, he takes reps. He has had multiple opportunities to work."
Randle will visit the Cowboys in Week 7.
