Austin Mack: Seven catches as a rookie

Mack secured seven of 11 targets for 91 yards across 11 games with the Giants in 2020.

Analysis: Mack also contributed on special teams for the Giants. Considering his status as an undrafted free agent, it's relatively impressive that Mack managed to carve out a consistent depth role in New York's receiving corps. The Ohio State product be an exclusive rights free agent this offseason.

Austin Mack: Not targeted Sunday

Mack wasn't targeted during Sunday's 19-17 win over the Bengals.

Analysis: The 23-year-old played 17 offensive snaps as New York's No. 4 wideout but wasn't targeted in the passing game. Mack's outlook is unlikely to improve given the health of the receiving corps and the injury to quarterback Daniel Jones (hamstring).

Austin Mack: Back down to one catch

Mack caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Mack took advantage of an expanded Week 9 role due to Golden Tate sitting out for disciplinary reasons and posted a career-high 72 yards, but he played only 24 offensive snaps (34 percent) against the Eagles and didn't get much attention from quarterback Daniel Jones. Barring injuries ahead of him on the wide receiver depth chart, Mack's unlikely to see the field enough to be a difference-maker moving forward.

Austin Mack: Leads team in receiving Week 9

Mack corralled four of five targets for 72 receiving yards during Sunday's 23-20 win against Washington.

Analysis: Mack had been promoted from the practice squad twice already this season coming into Week 9, though he had not yet registered a single offensive or special-teams snap. The undrafted rookie from Ohio State made quite an impression with his first opportunities, leading the team in receiving despite commanding half as many targets as top option Evan Engram. Darius Slaton, Sterling Shepard and C.J. Board all remain ahead of Mack on the depth chart, and that does not include Golden Tate (coach's decision), who was a healthy scratch for Week 9. Add in the arrival of Dante Pettis from San Francisco, and it's possible this is Mack's most notable blip on the radar all season.

Austin Mack: Ascends to active roster

The Giants signed Mack to the active roster Tuesday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Mack has spent the year on the Giants' practice squad, but now he'll replace Damion Ratley, who was waived by the team Tuesday, on the active roster. The 23-year-old wide receiver posted a 27-361-3 line over 10 games at Ohio State in 2019, and he's expected to work as the No. 4 wideout until Sterling Shepard (toe) returns from IR.

Austin Mack: Elevated to active roster

Mack was moved from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Mack joined the Giants in April as an undrafted free agent. He could participate in his first ever NFL game Sunday against the Rams, but he's buried down the depth chart at receiver and is likely to be used primarily on special teams.

Austin Mack: Makes practice squad

Mack signed with the Giants' practice squad Sunday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Mack wasn't able to crack New York's final roster, but he showed enough in training camp to stick around the organization in an emergency capacity. The Giants are set to begin 2020 with five wideouts on the practice squad, so Mack won't lack for competition.
