This fantasy football season everyone has been concerned over the state of the New York Giants. The team is currently 0-3 and QB Eli Manning has already thrown eight interceptions. It is not exactly a picture perfect start for any fantasy owner with a Giant on their roster.
However, there are still some guys worth adding for a stretch run. One of these under the radar guys is WR Rueben Randle.
It is obvious that WR Hakeem Nicks is nowhere near healthy, despite all his off-season positivity, and the injury to Nicks has opened the door for Randle to get more reps in the offense. Randle hauled in an impressive 101 yards in the first game of the season and the wideout has received 20 targets through the first three games. He missed some time with a rib injury last week against the Carolina Panthers, but considering the G-Men lost 38-0, it wasn’t exactly the best environment for Randle to have a big fantasy outing.
New York is still averaging 290.3 passing yards per game despite their offensive struggles, so there are plenty of yards to go around. Manning may not be having the best statistical season, but he has still been able to move the ball, with the only exception being last weekend. Manning will only get more comfortable as the season moves forward, especially if they can get the running game going, so don’t completely discount New York just yet.
Randle is worth adding as a WR4 right now and the second-year receiver should have a huge second half of the fantasy season. If you can get your hands on him now, do it before New York comes out of their offensive rut.
