Teddy Bridgewater downplayed Mike Wallace's lack of catches the last four games.
"Mike, he’s a guy who works extremely hard and we’re very close [on connecting on passes]," Bridgewater said. "And like I continue to say, each week in this offense, different guys are going to have an opportunity to make plays for us." Wallace has just two catches the last four games and has just four targets total in the last two. Bridgewater has just missed Wallace on potential big plays a couple times over that span, but Wallace has become a situational player in the Vikings' run-heavy scheme. Wallace has been droppable for a couple weeks. Nov 26 - 10:23 AM

Mike Wallace did not catch either of his two targets Week 11 against the Packers.

Wallace got open deep late in the game, but Teddy Bridgewater overthrew him. Wallace now has one catch or fewer in each of his last four games and has not topped 40 yards since Week 4. He has been droppable for a couple weeks.
Nov 22 - 8:23 PM

Mike Wallace snared one of two targets for 22 yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Raiders.

Minnesota’s passing game essentially took the week off while Adrian Peterson went bonkers with a 203-yard masterpiece. Needless to say, there wasn’t much work for Wallace on Sunday. Wallace has reeled in just two of his 12 targets over his last three games. We’re not expecting much from Wallace next week against the Packers.
Nov 15 - 8:56 PM

Mike Wallace caught 1-of-6 targets for four yards in the Vikings' Week 9 win over the Rams.

Over the past two games, Wallace has managed just a four-yard catch on 10 targets. His six looks led the team on Sunday, but Teddy Bridgewater missed him on a pair of throws where Wallace was open. Wallace is a mere WR4/5 for Week 10 at Oakland behind teammate Stefon Diggs.
Nov 8 - 5:36 PM

Mike Wallace was held catch-less on four targets in the Vikings' Week 8 win over the Bears.

Wallace got wide open for a would-be touchdown bomb behind the Bears' secondary, but Teddy Bridgewater flat-out missed him with a dreadful overthrow. Wallace has clearly moved behind Stefon Diggs (12 targets) and is now the Vikings' clear No. 2 receiver. He'll be a WR4 against the Rams in Week 9.
Nov 1 - 4:15 PM

Mike Wallace secured 4-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Lions.

Wallace has pretty clearly taken a backseat in the Vikings' passing game to Stefon Diggs, who has seen nine targets or more in three consecutive games. Wallace has proven to be a mismatch for Teddy Bridgewater's timing-and-rhythm passing game as a vertical stretcher in what is now a quick-out offense. Even against the Bears' weak defense in Week 8, Wallace will be a low-end WR3 option.
Oct 25 - 4:55 PM

Mike Wallace caught 2-of-9 targets for 23 yards in Minnesota's Week 6 win over Kansas City.

It was a step back after Wallace had his best game of the season going into Minnesota's bye. Wallace had a drop on the opening drive, but most of his targets were uncatchable. He remains the Vikings No. 1 pass-game option, though Stefon Diggs has put together back-to-back strong games. Wallace will be a boom/bust WR3 in Week 7.

Mike Wallace (knee) is listed as probable for Week 6.

He's all systems go for Sunday's juicy matchup with Kansas City.
Oct 16 - 3:47 PM

Mike Wallace (knee) participated in Vikings practice Friday.

He should be near or at full strength for Week 6 against Kansas City.
Oct 16 - 1:40 PM

Mike Wallace (knee) returned to Vikings practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Wallace is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He'll be a high-end WR3 against a defense that's allowed the most passing touchdowns in the league.
Oct 15 - 6:18 PM

Mike Wallace said he plans to test out his sore knee in Thursday's practice.

Wallace has not practiced yet this week, but getting back on Thursday is a good sign for his availability. As long as he comes out of Thursday clean, he should be good to go this week. Wallace has a good matchup against Kansas City's suspect pass defense.
Oct 15 - 12:48 PM

Mike Wallace (knee) said there's "no doubt" he'll play Sunday.

Wallace hasn't practiced this week, but is only dealing with soreness. He should be fine for Week 6 coming off the Vikings' bye. Wallace has potential for a big game against Kansas City's leaky pass defense.
Oct 14 - 6:44 PM

Mike Wallace (knee) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Wallace is said to be dealing with just a "sore" knee. At Wednesday's practice, he worked off to the side with a brace on his left knee. If Wallace is unable to play this week, rookie Stefon Diggs could start opposite Charles Johnson.
Oct 14 - 2:37 PM

Mike Wallace (knee) is not practicing on Monday.

Wallace missed the Vikings' only practice of the bye week with a sore knee as well. It is possible Minnesota is just giving their veteran wide out extra time off. Wallace had his best game as a Viking Week 4 against the Broncos, catching 8-of-10 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown. He will be a WR3 this week against the Chiefs.
Oct 12 - 12:30 PM

Mike Wallace caught 8-of-10 targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in Minnesota's Week 4 loss to the Broncos.

Going up against the Broncos' elite defense, Wallace had easily his best game as a Viking, finding a surprising amount of space. The score was his first in purple. Once one of the league's premier big-play threats, Wallace has seen his upside vanish in recent seasons, but still has a low-end WR3 floor. With four games in the books, he's on pace for 80/932/4. He gets the Chiefs in Week 5.
