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.

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.

Mike Wallace worked with the first-team offense on Sunday.

Wallace made news by flunking his conditioning test on the first day of camp, but he passed on Friday and has already begun working with the starters, a feat made less impressive by the absences of Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles') and Breshad Perriman (knee). Still, both players are not guaranteed to be ready for Week 1, making it likely the veteran has a big role to open the season. Wallace caught just 39 passes for 473 yards and two scores in Minnesota last year.

Mike Wallace passed his conditioning test and is practicing Friday.

"60 Minutes" failed the conditioning test to open camp on Wednesday and wasn't able to practice with the team until he passed it. It's not a good way to start camp, but not something that's going to have a huge overall impact. It is a bit concerning, however, as Wallace just hasn't been the same since leaving Pittsburgh. The Ravens are betting on Joe Flacco being a boost to Wallace.

Mike Wallace failed the conditioning test to open Ravens' training camp.

He'll get another chance to pass it on Thursday. But until Wallace does pass, he won't be able to practice and could open camp on the active/NFI list. All in all, it's not a huge deal for a soon-to-be 30-year-old veteran, but hints Wallace may have developed some laziness during the summer break.
Jul 27 - 4:04 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley listed Steve Smith Sr. and Mike Wallace as the starting receivers.

Smith should be locked into one of the spots if he is healthy, but the inclusion of Wallace is more interesting. Although Wallace was signed to a two-year, $11.5 million deal in March, Kamar Aiken has gotten more buzz this offseason. Breshad Perriman (knee) should also be involved if he is able to come back healthy. Like seemingly every other position on offense, the Ravens have a lot of questions to answer at receiver during training camp.

Mike Wallace believes he is a better receiver today than when he left Pittsburgh.

"I think I’ve gotten better, even though [the] numbers don’t say so," Wallace said. "I think I’ll get better this year, and I’ll show some people I have a lot up my sleeve." Wallace disappointed after leaving the Steelers for a five-year, $60-million deal with the Dolphins, and he was an absolute flop with the Vikings last year. He was never a good fit with either Ryan Tannehill or Teddy Bridgewater, however, so there is some reason to believe he can improve with Joe Flacco under center. Wallace is competing with Kamar Aiken and Breshad Perriman (knee) for a role opposite Steve Smith Sr. (Achilles').

The Baltimore Sun reports Mike Wallace has "impressed team officials with his effort level in OTAs."

It's meant as a compliment, but also speaks to how Wallace's effort hasn't always seemed to be there in recent seasons. Wallace has a big opportunity to reestablish himself as a factor this year, but is competing in an extremely jumbled receiver corps. The odds are against him reclaiming WR3 status.
Jun 14 - 6:16 PM

Joe Flacco expects Mike Wallace to have a big role in Ravens' offense.

Wallace is coming off career lows, but his struggles were partly due to Teddy Bridgwater's short-area playing style and Minnesota's inability to pass protect. Wallace will run more vertical routes in Baltimore and should easily top last year's 72 targets. Playing with cannon-armed Flacco gives Wallace a chance to reestablish himself as one of the NFL's better deep threats.
Apr 2 - 4:20 PM

New Ravens WR Mike Wallace says he had no intention of re-signing with the Vikings.

"When this process started, I knew that I wasn't going back to Minnesota," Wallace said matter of factly. "I was like, 'I need a good quarterback.' I need a quarterback who I know is proven and can get things done." Per the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec, Wallace's comments sounded less incendiary in person, but it confirms Wallace viewed Teddy Bridgewater's weak arm as a major concern. A total misfit for Bridgewater and Ryan Tannehill's skill-sets, Wallace could get cooking as a deep threat again with a cannon-armed Joe Flacco delivering his targets.
Mar 15 - 5:15 PM

Ravens signed WR Mike Wallace, formerly of the Vikings, to a two-year, $11.5 million contract.

Baltimore will be Wallace's third team in three years. Wallace has averaged just 775 receiving yards over the past four seasons, bottoming out at 473 in 2015, but is a badly needed deep threat for the Ravens' unsettled receiver corps. Although Wallace's decline began in Pittsburgh, he's a sideline specialist who has been saddled with two of the weakest-armed quarterbacks in the league in Ryan Tannehill and Teddy Bridgewater over the past three years. He'll never have another 1,000-yard season, but should rebound on his dreadful 2015. If Steve Smith and Breshad Perriman can stay healthy, Baltimore's receiver corps will be much improved on last year's laughable unit.
