2. Rueben Randle’s on the Verge of Breaking Out

You can argue Randle broke out last year with his 71 catches and 938 yards. However, I’m reluctant to give him that much praise after he was benched twice and still has some chemistry issues on the field with Eli. And I think his ceiling is much higher than his numbers show.

Randle’s a 6’2” field-stretcher who can go up and get a jump ball on the deep passes. He needs to improve his route running and his communication with Eli. But he has shown flashes of dominance, which he demonstrated by catching 12 passes for 290 yards in the final two weeks of 2014.

The LSU alum also has some red zone chops after reeling in 12 touchdowns the last three seasons. With Victor Cruz rehabbing a major knee injury—and probably mostly playing the slot this season—keep an eye on Randle on the outside.
