Since the emergence of rookie Odell Beckham in Week 9, and especially since his even bigger emergence in Week 12, wide receiver
Randle even caught a touchdown pass, his first since Week 5. Of course, Beckham caught two and is now up to eight in his last five games, averaging 9.6 catches for 131.4 yards during that stretch.
You see the problem here, don't you? Manning was able to sustain both Beckham and Randle in this one, but that's only because he threw for a season-high 391 yards. If he regresses to a more modest total Week 17 against Philadelphia, we all know Randle is the one taking a back seat. Beckham has other-worldly talent, and Manning is smart enough to deliver him the ball as often as possible.
Of course, the Giants will probably have to throw a lot to keep pace with the Eagles, which bodes well for Randle, but you should still treat him as no more than a No. 3 wide receiver in Fantasy.
Randle caught each of his targets. He started the game after coming off the bench the two previous weeks for being late to meetings.
Randle will try to finish strong Week 17 against the Eagles.
He entered the game in the second quarter, which is exactly how the situation played out in Week 13 against the Jaguars after sitting out the first quarter because he was late for a team meeting. Randle, who was targeted four times, finished with two catches for 30 yards.
The Giants are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.
The third-year receiver had just one catch for 9 yards in a 36-7 win. He was targeted three times.
The one catch was a season low for Randle, who hasn't had a touchdown in eight games. The Giants are back in action Week 15 against the Redskins. Randle had eight catches for 89 yards in Week 4 against Washington.
Randle was notably absent from the team's lineup as the game began Sunday. Speculation arose whether or not Randle was on the sidelines due to injury or disciplinary reasons. He finally entered the game early in the second quarter, but it wasn't revealed until after the game why Randle missed the first quarter.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin wouldn't reveal why Randle sat out the opening period Sunday, stating: "That's between Rueben and I." Although, Randle was more forthcoming with information, revealing he was late for a team meeting Friday because he forgot about a schedule change.
Randle extended his scoreless streak to seven games Sunday. The Giants are back in action Week 14 at Tennessee.
