Ready to trust in Rueben Randle?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Coming off what was far and away his best game of the season, Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle may seem like a sneaky play Week 5 against Atlanta. The Falcons are terrible on defense, having just allowed 558 yards to the Vikings, of all teams, and rank 30th against the pass, allowing 276.3 yards per game.

But the matchup might almost be too good for a player in Randle's situation. He's not the Giants' top weapon -- not even close. I'd bet on running back Rashad Jennings, wide receiver Victor Cruz and tight end Larry Donnell having big games before I bet on Randle. And after the way rookie running back Andre Williams performed in relief of Jennings last week, the Giants might involve him more, too.

Favorable matchup or not, not all of those players can have big games, and because the Falcons aren't strong enough anywhere on defense to neutralize one of those threats, Randle may take a back seat.

I'm not saying he can't have a big game. I'm just saying I'd have to be convinced he has a better spot in the pecking order to put any money on it. I probably wouldn't resort to him except in leagues that require the use of three wide receivers.

Which receivers are worth adding this week?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper

Rueben Randle fails to haul in a score
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle failed to haul in a score Thursday against Washington.

Randle had a good game overall, hauling in eight catches for 89 yards. He had a shot at a touchdown, but it was taken away on a controversial call. Randle caught the ball in the end zone, but it popped out when he was hit and wound up being an interception. Though Randle had crossed the goal line, it was determined he could not complete the catch, and the call stood. 

Randle will take on the Falcons Week 5.

Receivers could go against the norm Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Generally speaking, skill positions players are hard to rely on when facing Thursday night matchups. Through three weeks, only one player has topped 100 yards receiving on Thursday this season, compared to 29 in 45 other games. That pattern continued last season, as only 10 of the league's 208 100-yard receiving performances came during the 17 Thursday games a year ago.

That being said, this Thursday's game has all of the makings of an outlier, as the Redskins and Giants look set for a shootout. Neither team boasts a particularly strong pass defense, with both ranking among the league's seven worst in yards per attempt allowed. That is why you will find Pierre Garcon and Victor Cruz ranked among the top-15 at wide receiver in both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard's rankings for Week 4.

Cruz has enjoyed solid success against Washington in his career, averaging 71.8 yards per game in five matchups. Garcon was mostly held in check in two games against the Giants a year ago, hauling in 15 combined passes for just 117 yards, but Fantasy owners have to consider him a must-start option after the rapport he showed with new starter Kirk Cousins a week ago. Especially with DeSean Jackson's availability in question with a shoulder injury. 

If Jackson plays, he could be a nice option, as he shrugged off the shoulder injury with five receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown last week. Rueben Randle just might find himself the odd-man-out this week, however, and is more of a flex start.

Rueben Randle totals 27 yards on 10 targets Week 3
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Giants made a concerted effort Week 3 against the Texans to get the football to wide receiver Rueben Randle. However, despite a team-high 10 targets, Randle finished with just five catches for 27 yards in a 30-17 win.

Randle was targeted on the first play of scrimmage Sunday and three times on the second drive. By halftime, he had seven targets, but he managed just four catches for 26 yards.

Randle had a chance in the fourth quarter to haul in a 13-yard touchdown pass, but the pass hit him in the chest and he couldn't make the one-handed grab. 

Randle has just 11 catches for 67 yards and one touchdown through three games. The Giants are back in action Thursday against the Redskins.
