|Rueben Randle scored six touchdowns in limited action last season, but still had to endure an offseason where his value was constantly questioned. General manager Jerry Reese failed to endorse him as a capable starting wide receiver and former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride implied that the team was never sold on his abilities. The apparent slights by the organization seemed to be further borne out when the team spent the No. 12 overall pick on wide receiver Odell Beckham, despite more pressing needs. Reports about Randle from OTAs and from training camp have all been nothing but positive, however. The new offense is thought to be a better fit for his skillset and should allow him to rely more on his physical gifts to get open rather than requiring him to make the proper read. Last season Randle and Eli Manning weren't always on the same page, and the hope is that Randle will be more effective this season in the new offense. At 6'2” he's the tallest of the wide receivers and he should see significant action. With the team having no discernible tight end, Randle could be the team's top red zone target.
| Cruz out for the season, torn patellar tendon|
Giants lose starting receiver

|New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz was carted off the field sobbing with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee during the third quarter of the team's game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Tough break for Cruz and the Giants. The patellar injury requires a lengthy rehab process and is very difficult to come back from. Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. will join Rueben Randle in the starting lineup.
| Randle, Beckham Jr. out with hamstring injuries|
Rookie wideout expected to miss another week
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jul 29, 3:00 pm
|The hamstring bug is spreading at Giants training camp. Wide receiver Rueben Randle joined the party on Tuesday. Randle, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and tight end Xavier Grimble all missed practice with hamstring injuries. It is not believed that Randle's injury is serious, but Beckham's wasn't supposed to be either. Eight weeks later, Beckham isn't practicing. (NJ.com)|
FFToday's Take: Beckham is expected to miss another week of camp with his hamstring injury while it's unclear how much time Randle will miss. Both receivers are expected to be starters in the Giants three receiver offense this season but missing valuable practice time while a new offense is being installed doesn't bode well for their fantasy prospects.
