Rueben Randle's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Week 5 Performance vs. Eagles

Joseph Zucker@@JosephZuckerFeatured ColumnistOctober 6, 2013

If you've stuck with Rueben Randle on your fantasy football team this long, your faith was repaid in a big way in Week 5.

The second-year wideout had one of his best performances of the season. Randle had six receptions for 96 yards and two touchdowns in the New York Giants' 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

It's his most receiving yards in a game since Week 1 against the Dallas Cowboys, when he had five receptions for 101 yards.   

You'll want to make sure not to get carried away by this one game. It's going to be hard for Randle to maintain this kind of level of performance throughout the rest of the year.

He's still going to be third on the depth chart behind Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks. Plus, the Giants aren't going to play the Eagles every week; Philadelphia has one of the worst pass defenses in the league.

While Randle is worthy of a spot on your fantasy team, he's the kind of player who should only get the start in the right situations as a matchup play. Still, his Week 5 performance is a good sign for his fantasy outlook moving forward.
