Moves back to practice squad

Myarick reverted to the Giants' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: Myarick saw six snaps on offense and four on special teams in Sunday's win over the Colts, but he did not record any stats. The 27-year-old has played in all 16 contests for the Giants this season, but he was waived and re-signed to the team's practice squad last week. He'll work to earn the opportunity for another elevation Week 18 against the Eagles.

Elevated for Week 17

The Giants elevated Myarick from their practice squad Saturday, Michael Eisen of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: New York waived Myarick earlier this week, but he cleared waivers and was subsequently re-signed to the team's practice squad. The second-year pro will be active Week 17 against the Colts, as he has been for every other game this season. Myarick has shifted primarily to a special-teams role since New York's Week 9 bye, and he's tallied just seven catches on eight targets for 65 yards and a touchdown overall this season.

Returns to Giants' practice squad

Myarick was re-signed to the Giants' practice squad Friday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: After being waived Wednesday, Myarick will stay in New York, joining their practice unit Friday. The 27-year-old has appeared in all 15 of the Giants' games to this point this season, making him a likely candidate to get elevated to the active roster at some point down the stretch. Myarick has produced seven catches for 65 yards and a touchdown while splitting time between the offense and special teams this year.

Waived by Giants

Myarick has been waived by the Giants, Dan Salomone of the team's official website reports.

Analysis: Myarick was let go in favor of the team adding guard depth. He was drafted by New York in 2020 and accumulated 65 yards and one touchdown on seven receptions across 13 games during the 2022 season. The 27-year-old will now look for a new opportunity.

Tallies just eight snaps Sunday

Myarick did not get a touch or a target in the Giants' Week 13 tie with the Commanders.

Analysis: Myarick entered the contest having played at least 22 percent of New York's offensive snaps in 10 of 11 games, but that rate went down to just 12 percent Sunday. That was largely due to the return of rookie tight end Daniel Bellinger (97 percent offensive snap rate) and the presence of recently signed veteran Nick Vannett (45 percent). Myarick has caught just seven passes on eight targets over 12 games this season, and he's likely to see few pass-catching opportunities with Bellinger back in the fold.

Records season-long reception

Myarick was targeted once and recorded a 23-yard reception in Thursday's 28-20 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: Myarick, who dabbles between both fullback and tight end, produced a season-long gain on his lone target of the day. He's rarely featured in the Giants' passing game, having turned in a 7-65-1 receiving line on eight targets while appearing in all 11 of the team's contests to date.

Quiet performance in Week 8 loss

Myarick caught his only target for 10 yards in a loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Analysis: When rookie Daniel Bellinger departed last week's win over Jacksonville with an eye injury, Myarick stepped up to log a career-best 21 receiving yards on two catches. He wasn't able to build upon that production in Week 8, as Tanner Hudson instead saw increased opportunity with three catches on five targets for 58 yards. Myarick and/or Hudson could see a sprinkling of targets each week while Bellinger remains out, but neither is a priority add in fantasy given the uncertain work distribution and the lack of potency in New York's air attack.

Tallies career-best 21 yards

Myarick hauled in both of his targets for 21 yards in a Week 7 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.

Analysis: Rookie Daniel Bellinger exited the game late in the second quarter after being carted off the field with an eye injury, leaving Myarick to handle the bulk of the work at tight end. The third-year pro made a key catch near the end of the half to help set up a Graham Gano field goal, and he finished the game with a career-high 21 yards through the air while recording multiple receptions for the first time this season. If Bellinger is forced to miss additional time, Myarick would presumably fill in as a starter in his stead.

Not listed on injury report

Myarick doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's contest against the Ravens, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Marick was limited at each practice during Week 6 prep due to an ankle issue, but he doesn't carry an injury designation for Sunday's matchup. The third-year pro has played at least 20 offensive snaps in four straight games while operating as the Giants' No. 2 tight end and occasional fullback.

Oct 14, 2022 12:23 PM EST

Limited in practice

Myarick (ankle) was a limited participant in practice Thursday.

Analysis: Myarick was also a limited participant Wednesday, leaving his status for Sunday against the Ravens in question. As the team's No. 2 tight end, while also playing as a fullback, it's unclear how the Giants would replace him if he were unable to suit up.

Oct 13, 2022 2:18 PM EST

Back at practice

Myarick (foot) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Myarick was dealing with a minor foot injury during the preseason, but as expected, he's returned to practice and should be full go for the regular season. While he's listed as a fullback on the Giants' official roster, Myarick is expected to operate as a backup option at tight end behind Daniel Bellinger (concussion) this season.

Sep 7, 2022 1:29 PM EST

Expected back at practice

Myarick (foot) is expected back at practice this week, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Myarick is dealing with a minor foot injury, but he should be back practicing at some point this week. The tight end is expected to be the primary backup option behind rookie Daniel Bellinger (concussion) this season.

Aug 30, 2022 11:35 AM EST

Back with Big Blue

Myarick signed a contract with the Giants on Tuesday, NFL agent Paul Sheehy reports.

Analysis: Myarick started the 2021 campaign with the Giants before being waived and landing on Cincinnati's practice squad. He appeared in eight games for New York last season and caught three passes for 17 yards and one touchdown.

Feb 22, 2022 2:46 PM EST

Joins Bengals' practice squad

The Bengals signed Myarick to their practice squad Thursday.

Analysis: Myarick was waived by the Giants on Tuesday after spending seven straight games on the active roster, but he'll quickly land a role as organizational depth for Cincinnati. The 26-year-old made eight appearances for the Giants this year and secured three of six targets for 17 yards and a touchdown.

Jan 6, 2022 9:08 AM EST

Waived by Giants

Myarick was waived by the Giants on Tuesday, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: After playing 24 snaps in the Giants' Week 17 loss to the Bears, Myarick was let go by the team. The tight end was part of the active roster for each of the team's last seven games, catching three passes for 17 yards and a touchdown. He will now either be claimed by another team, rejoin the Giants' practice squad or enter free agency.

Jan 4, 2022 3:31 PM EST

Ready for Sunday

Myarick (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Myarick was questionable due to the hip injury but has been cleared to take the field. The 26-year-old should fill his usual role as New York's No. 3 tight end with Evan Engram and Kyle Rudolph healthy.

Jan 2, 2022 9:03 AM EST

Catches two passes in win

Myarick caught both of his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 13-7 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Myarick's one-yard touchdown grab was the only time the Giants' saw the end zone in the contest. The 26-year-old tight end was promoted from the practice squad ahead of the game to handle tight end duties behind Evan Engram with both Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and Kaden Smith (knee) ruled out. When those two are healthy, it is possible Myarick is moved back to the practice squad. Nonetheless, the 6-foot-5, 261-pounder showed that he can be trusted as a pass catcher when the team is in scoring range. If Myarick is needed in Week 13, the Giants will face off against the Dolphins.

Dec 1, 2021 3:25 AM EST

Promoted for Week 12

Myarick was signed from the practice squad, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Myarick was elevated prior to Week 11 as well. His promotion likely means one or both of Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and Kaden Smith (knee) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Nov 25, 2021 9:08 AM EST

Back to practice squad

Myarick has reverted back to the Giants' practice squad, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: The Giants elevated Myrick to their 53-man roster prior to Monday's 30-10 loss to the Bucs. It was his second game on the active roster this season. He ultimately did not record any statistics.

Nov 23, 2021 4:12 PM EST

Elevated from practice squad

Myarick was elevated from the Giants' practice squad to the active roster for Monday's game against the Buccaneers, Michael Elsen of the Giants' official site reports.

Analysis: Myarick was also elevated to the active roster for Week 2 and didn't receive a target on seven offensive snaps. He could serve as New York's No. 3 tight end if Kaden Smith (knee), who is listed as questionable, is unable to suit up Monday.
