Mike Wallace caught 10-of-13 targets for 120 yards in the Ravens' Week 7 loss to the Jets.
Wallace has seen extreme volume consistently over the last month, and this was his most efficient effort to date. His highlight was a 53-yard catch in double coverage in the second quarter. Despite Joe Flacco's struggles, Wallace has played himself into the every-week WR3 conversation. The Ravens go on a Week 8 bye, then they will take on the Steelers in Week 9. It's unclear whether Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) will return by then. Oct 23 - 4:20 PM

Mike Wallace secured four-of-nine targets for 97 yards Sunday in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Giants.

As expected, Wallace saw an increased workload with Steve Smith Sr. sidelined by a sprained ankle. Most of Wallace’s yardage came on a 70-yard explosion late in the third quarter. He torched Janoris Jenkins on the play to set Baltimore up with a first-and-goal from the three-yard line. Wallace was wide open and could have strolled into the end zone for a game-winning touchdown on the game’s final possession but the pass from Joe Flacco was badly overthrown. He’s now been targeted 29 times over his last three games. Wallace will be in the WR3 discussion next week against the Jets.

Mike Wallace (chest) is expected to play in Sunday's Week 6 game against the Giants.

Wallace's status for Sunday was never in much doubt. Wallace's volume should increase with Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) sidelined this week, though he's always been a boom-or-bust fantasy option. Consider him a WR3 this week.
Oct 16 - 8:53 AM

Mike Wallace (chest) is questionable for Week 6 against the Giants.

He's practiced fully the past two days and should be fine for Sunday's divisional matchup against the Giants. Wallace earned a team-high 11 targets last week with Steve Smith Sr. sidelined by a sprained ankle. We'd expect a similar workload for Wallace in Week 6.
Oct 14 - 2:21 PM

Mike Wallace (chest) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Wallace will be ready to go against the Giants. He will have WR3 appeal with Steve Smith Sr. (ankle) expected to be sidelined.
Oct 13 - 3:41 PM

Mike Wallace (chest) was still wearing a non-contact jersey in Thursday's practice.

The fact he is practicing at all suggests he will play, but the non-contact jersey is at least concerning. Wallace is set to see more targets with Steve Smith Sr. sidelined.
Oct 13 - 11:21 AM

Mike Wallace (ribs) was wearing a non-contact jersey at Wednesday's practice.

It's the first time Wallace has been on the injury report this season. He's still practicing, however, and will likely be listed as limited. As long as Wallace practices all week, he should be fine to face the Giants. The Ravens are expected to attempt more deep balls under new OC Marty Mornhinweg.
Oct 12 - 11:23 AM

Mike Wallace caught 7-of-11 targets for 63 yards in the Ravens' Week 5 loss to the Redskins.

As Steve Smith (ankle) left the game in the first quarter, Wallace took on the role of possession receiver and led Baltimore in targets, racking up possession-style catches. Wallace's usage will grow if Smith misses time going forward, but Wallace is just a fringe WR3 play in fantasy leagues. The 30-year-old onetime deep threat has failed to clear 65 receiving yards in four straight games.
Oct 9 - 4:27 PM

Mike Wallace caught 4-of-10 targets for 44 yards in the Ravens' Week 4 loss to the Raiders.

His ten targets were second on the team behind Steve Smith's 11. The Ravens dialed up a few deep shots to Wallace down the field, but he couldn't connect with Joe Flacco. Wallace has a big role in Baltimore's offense, but he has been a touchdown-dependent fantasy commodity so far. Wallace will be a low-end WR3 option when the Ravens play the Redskins next.
Oct 2 - 4:47 PM

Mike Wallace collected three catches for 34 yards on six targets Sunday in the Ravens' Week 3 win over the Jaguars.

He only caught one ball for seven yards in the second half as Joe Flacco went to his safety valve, Steve Smith Sr. Wallace had a touchdown in his grasp but couldn’t come down with it early in the third quarter. That ended Flacco’s streak of 21 completions in a row. We knew Wallace would cool off after erupting for three touchdowns in his first two contests. Wallace is still a terrific playmaker and one of the game’s fastest downfield receivers but he’s always been boom-or-bust when it comes to fantasy. He’ll be a WR3 next time out against Oakland.
Sep 25 - 5:55 PM

Joe Flacco said he wants to "keep feeding" Mike Wallace targets.

"I know he's very confident, and we want to keep him that way," Flacco said. "The more and more he continues to feel like that is going to be better for our team." Wallace is third on the team with 12 targets, but he has scored all three of the Ravens' offensive touchdowns. With the Jaguars and Raiders next up on the schedule, Wallace should be starting on most teams the next two weeks.

Mike Wallace caught 4-of-6 targets for 41 yards and two touchdowns in the Ravens' 25-20, Week 2 win over the Browns.

The Ravens fell behind 20-0 right out of the gates in the first quarter, but Baltimore rallied back to win by five on the backs of Joe Flacco and Wallace. Wallace caught his first touchdown on seven-yard slant platter, before later being left wide open in the left side of the end zone for a 17-yarder. He was mostly unheard from in the second half. The Ravens again rotated snaps at receiver, but Wallace is clearly the guy to own here as both the big-play threat and a serious red-zone option as evidenced by Sunday. 2-0 Baltimore travels to Jacksonville for Week 3.
Sep 18 - 4:15 PM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-6 targets for 91 yards and one touchdown in the Ravens' 13-7, Week 1 win over the Bills.

Wallace got the start opposite Steve Smith Sr., and his six targets were three fewer than Smith's team-high nine. Now 30, Wallace showed he still has the deep speed that made him millions on a big-money deal with the Dolphins. He was miscast badly in Miami and then Minnesota, but landed in a perfect spot with big-armed Joe Flacco. The two showed it off immediately, hooking up for a perfect 66-yard touchdown deep down the middle after Wallace ran right by S Duke Williams. The Ravens have a deep receiver corps and will likely rotate guys to keep them fresh, but Wallace has the best odds to lead the team in yards with numerous big plays.
Sep 11 - 4:05 PM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-6 targets for 37 yards in Baltimore's third preseason game.

With the Ravens missing multiple starters, Wallace was the clear No. 1 option. All six of his targets came from Joe Flacco in the first quarter. Wallace hasn't done much this preseason, but is a solid rebound candidate in Baltimore's vertical pass scheme. He's been Flacco's favorite receiver throughout training camp.
Aug 27 - 8:31 PM

Joe Flacco said he thinks Mike Wallace is "going to be a really big hit" for the offense.

We haven't read much on Wallace since he failed his conditioning test at the start of training camp. But according to ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley, camp has been "filled" with highlights between Flacco and Wallace. The two are hitting it off in the red zone, on fade routes, deep balls, and first-down grabs over the middle. With Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee) on PUP, Wallace has been Flacco's favorite target this summer.
