Rueben Randle finds the end zone for fantasy owners for third straight week

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The Giants got their first win of the season on Monday night, and a touchdown by Rueben Randle helped propel them. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Giants continue to get encouraging results from second-year wideout Rueben Randle.

Amid a game where Head Coach Tom Coughlin dialed-up a conservative gameplan, Randle caught just three passes for 40 yards, but made an athletic touchdown grab in the first-half in one-on-one coverage down the sideline. Though he was not as heavily featured as past weeks, Randle displayed a physicality and reliability that is quickly making him a favorite target of Eli Manning.

Fantasy Spin: Randle continues to ascend the fantasy ranks, and has now scored four touchdowns in his last three games. Additionally, it is the third straight game Randle has logged more fantasy points than his counterpart Hakeem Nicks, indicating there could be a changing of the guard in the Giants receiving corps.

Nicks has often been the topic of potential trades, and with Rueben proving capable, Nicks could very well be expendable. Going forward, Randle is a serviceable WR3 against the Eagles in Week 8, and would be solid depth to round out fantasy owners' receiving corps.
