Giants' Rueben Randle paces secondary targets in Week 12
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle caught all three of his targets for 36 yards in his team's 31-28 loss to the Cowboys in Week 12.

Eli Manning was locked in on rookie Odell Beckham (10 catches, 146 yards, two TDs) and running back Rashad Jennings (eight catches, 68 yards), and Randle was one of the quarterback's six other targeted receivers to split 11 catches. Tight end Daniel Fells also secured three receptions for 35 yards, while tight end Larry Donnell managed just two receptions for 24 yards. Wide receiver Preston Parker caught one of his three targets for 16 yards, while tight end Adrien Robinson caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown.

Randle, Parker and the team's TE corps should continue to play a complementary role behind Beckham moving forward. The Giants will take on the Jaguars in Week 13.

Giants going with committee at tight end
by Larry Hartstein |

Giants coach Tom Coughlin said the team will use several tight ends. None of the contenders for the starting job -- Larry Donnell, Adrien Robinson, Kellen Davis and Daniel Fells -- separated himself.

"That is not necessarily what the plan was," Coughlin said. "But the plan has evolved to that, where people can be utilized for their skills in different ways."

Giants see Adrien Robinson as a breakout player
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Newark Star-Ledger believes Giants general manager Jerry Reese insinuated that tight end Adrien Robinson would be a breakout candidate for the team this season. Reese didn't name Robinson specifically but did talk about him as part of the group of tight ends they're hoping to get some good production from this fall. 

"We still have some guys that have to prove some things. We have some young players with some dynamic skill sets that can get out there and do it," Reese said. "Adrien Robinson, Larry Donnell, and couple of young tight ends that we like. Those guys have to do out there and do it. I always refer to other people's roster. Julius Thomas only had one catch going into the season. Hopefully we could have a guy that can step out of the shadows and do that for us. They just have to get out there and do it."

Robinson has yet to catch a pass in his NFL career. He's played in just three games.

Giants leaning toward committee approach at tight end
by Larry Hartstein |

Adrien Robinson hasn't separated himself from the Giants' other tight ends, and the team "probably" will go with a committee approach, reports The Star-Ledger.

"I think the jury is still out on who the No. 1 tight end is, I think it'll probably be tight end by committee," general manager Jerry Reese said on WFAN. "But there are some really good tight ends, some athletic, big guys who can run and catch the ball.

"Adrien Robinson and Larry Donnell are a couple of young guys who have been on the squad for a couple of years, but have had some injury stuff going on with them. We expect them to be healthy and to be able to pick up the slack here."

Daniel Fells, Xavier Grimble and Kellen Davis are the other tight ends on the roster.

Adrien Robinson could start for Giants
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Giants could open the season with Adrien Robinson as their starting tight end, reports ESPN.

"Well, it's my third year, my weight's down, we've got a new [offensive coordinator], new tight ends coach, everything is fresh," Robinson said. "It's a clean slate, and I'm just ready to go."

'Now or never' for Adrien Robinson
by Larry Hartstein |

The Giants let tight end Brandon Myers leave via free agency and they didn't draft a tight end, creating a big opportunity for third-year pro Adrien Robinson. The 2012 fourth-round pick let his weight get up to 285 last year but says he's now 270 and aiming for 265, reports The Star-Ledger.

"It's just a huge opportunity. They laid a huge opportunity in front of me. I just have to go take it, make the most of it," said Robinson, who has zero catches in two seasons. "I do feel that pressure. I know it's my third year. Like you said, 'it's now or never.' That is my mentality that I'm taking every day."

Giants going with Adrien Robinson at tight end
by Larry Hartstein |

Tight end was a position of need for the Giants, but they didn't choose one during the draft. That leaves 2012 fourth-round pick Adrien Robinson as the projected starter, reports ESPN.com.

"We weren't going to force any players or overvalue anybody just because people may think we need a tight end," Giants VP of player evaluation Marc Ross told the website. "That's just not the way we operate." 

Jermichael Finley and Dustin Keller remain available in free agency.

Giants could be in market for tight end help
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Giants could look at reuniting offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo with one or two of his former players to fill their void at tight end, reports the Newark Star-Ledger.

McAdoo, who coached the Packers tight ends for six seasons in Green Bay before taking over as quarterbacks coach the past two seasons, likes using the tight end in his offense. The Giants cut Brandon Myers this offseason, and the Packers have two free agents on the market in Andrew Quarless and Jermichael Finley, who is trying to make a comeback following spinal fusion surgery last season.

Either one could be in play for the Giants, who only have Larry Donnell and Adrien Robinson on the roster. Bear Pascoe is going to be an unrestricted free agent.

Giants WR Victor Cruz, S Cooper Taylor, OL Brandon Mosley, DE Jason Pierre-Paul and TE Adrien Robinson have been ruled out Week 17.
