Randle has been battling knee tendinitis, and the pain in his knee caused the early end to his day.
"We thought he was doing pretty good last night," coach Tom Coughlin said, although he didn't sound like the knee problem was serious.
Randle finished his third season with career highs of 71 catches for 938 yards, with four touchdowns. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal.
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.
