Starting anyone outside of Beckham Jr on the Giants is risky, very risky.
Freeman was the play out of those names IMO, but after Vereen's line last week I understand why you believed Vereen could deliver in this one.
Coughlin is pretty direct though, if he says they're going to make a concerted effort to get a certain player involved, then that's what they're going to do.
Randle was that guy, I wouldn't have played him this week if that wasn't the case. Just try to follow Giants beat writers, it's not like Coughlin is often cryptic about what he's going to do. He'll telegraph the gameplan and still execute, that's just the type of old school hard-nose coach he is.
