Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 12: Rueben Randle is inconsistent start

Al Bello

We take a look at whether or not you should start Rueben Randle in your fantasy league in Week 12.

New York Giants wide receiver Rueben Randle seems to be making a name for himself in his second year with the team. Randle, a second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, has played in 10 games this season and has looked solid. He's already eclipsed his rookie season with 29 receptions for 460 yards.

That's an average of 15.9 yards per reception. The most important stat to mention, however, is that Randle has six touchdowns on the season. All six of those touchdowns have come over the last six games. Randle has already eclipsed Hakeem Nicks, who has no touchdowns as one of the starters, and Victor Cruz, who has struggled to score in recent weeks.

Randle is the third receiver on the field, but he's quickly establishing himself as a player who finishes drives.

Fantasy Sit/Start: Obviously, Randle hasn't put up the yardage numbers on a consistent basis. He's the third receiver on, so he's not seeing all the targets, but there's fantasy value if he continues to be targeted in the red zone. This essentially means he's a deep start in any league, but primarily as a WR3 for lack of a better option. We might not be too far off from naming him a must-start in future seasons if he keeps up his progression.
