Rueben Randle leads Giants in receiving, fantasy value still questionable

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Eli Manning struggled again, but Rueben Randle put in another solid outing. We break down the fantasy implications.

Rueben Randle caught three passes for 75 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Bears. He was targeted five times -- same as Victor Cruz -- and hauled in the only passing score from Eli Manning on Thursday night.

Randle's night was not mistake-free, though. Manning's first two interceptions were headed Randle's way. The second was the result of the second-year wideout running the wrong route. He also nearly turned the ball over in the third quarter when he slammed the ball on the ground after tripping and falling, but the refs said he gave himself up.

Fantasy impact: Randle clearly dodged a bullet with the refs ruling of no fumble. Tom Coughlin already seemed irritated by Randle's route running, and another mistake like this could've put him on the bench for the night.

Manning continues to struggle, and the Giants defense doesn't do him any favors. Expect plenty of passes every game going forward. Randle is still a risky play, but he's becoming more reliable for this trainwreck of a team.
