News: Randle had six catches on 13 targets for 158 yards during Sunday's loss to the Eagles.
Impact: An excellent game for Randle, though he was greatly overshadowed, once again, by rookie wideout Odell Beckham, who caught 12 passes on 21 targets for 185 yards and a touchdown. Randle posted back-to-back games with over 130 yards in Weeks 16 and 17, finishing the season with 71 catches on 127 targets for 938 yards and three touchdowns. Randle will likely return to the No. 3 wideout role next season, when Victor Cruz returns from his knee injury, which means he likely won't get nearly as many targets as he did this season.

News: Randle caught all six of his targets Sunday against the Rams, finishing with 132 yards and a touchdown in New York's 37-27 victory.
Impact: Randle hadn't scored since Week 5 and had surpassed 75 receiving yards just once in that span. This was a pleasant surprise, but with Odell Beckham deservedly getting most of the targets among the Giants' receivers, games like these will continue to be an aberration for Randle.
Rotowire: Dec 7 / 10:18p ET
News: Randle caught one of three targets for nine yards Sunday.
Impact: The Giants had hoped Randle would develop in his third year, but his role in the offense has diminished as the season's gone on.
