Update 10-25-2013 - Randle is doing a very good job as the #3 receiver for the Giants. He hasnt been consistent enough to be a lock start every week but with all the bye weeks and injuries, he is worth a look, especially in good matchups

Update August 7, 2013 - So far this off season and during training camp the reviews about Randle have been very good. With the injury history the Giants receivers have, Randle is looking more and more like a worthy draft pick, especially in leagues where you start 2+ receivers and flex and/or dynasty leagues

Randle had a very quiet rookie season playing behind Nicks, Cruz and even the departed Domenik Hixon. With Hixon gone, look for Randle to move into the #3 spot on the depth chart; and with the Giants going to 3 WRs so often, look for Randle to get a lot more opportunities to become a factor in the Giants' offense this season. With Nicks' injury history and Eli Manning's knack for making anyone who lines up at receiver successful, Randle is definitely someone to keep an eye on.

Over the past 3 years Eli Manning has had a different g- to TE each season, and each season he has done the best he could. This year will be another new TE, Brandon Myers, formerly of the Oakland Raiders. Last season (despite playing with below average QBs), Myers put up career numbers, catching 79 passes for 806 yards and 4 touchdowns as the g- to guy in the Raiders' weak offense. It will be interesting to see if he can match or eclipse those numbers playing with a much better QB, but also sharing the load with a better receiving corps. Don't be surprised to see him put up comparable numbers this season.

After a long stint using Lawrence Tynes as their kicker, the Giants let him walk as a free agent and have brought in Josh Brown to take over the kicking duties. Brown has been a solid kicker over the years and will benefit from playing on one of the higher scoring offenses in the league. Last season Tynes finished the season scoring the 2nd most points in the league, so drafting Brown as one of the higher kickers makes sense.

The Giants' defense played well below average last season, giving up the 2nd most yards and finishing 22nd in sacks. The bright spot was they did finish 3rd in the NFL in turnovers. The Giants' D should be improved this season, regardless they still shouldn't be considered a top fantasy defense.
