The Ravens exercised WR Mike Wallace's option and will keep him for 2017.
There were some whispers the Ravens could move on from Wallace and his $8 million cap hit, but Baltimore ultimately decided to keep their best receiver in the fold after Steve Smith retired and Torrey Smith opted to sign with the Eagles. Wallace and Breshad Perriman are penciled in as Nos. 1 and 2 out wide. Mar 9 - 4:44 PM

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes Torrey Smith's availability could affect the Ravens' decision whether to keep Mike Wallace.

Coach John Harbaugh said he anticipates Wallace being back with the team, but that was before Smith was cut by the 49ers. Wallace is set to count $8 million against the cap in the final year of his deal, and the Ravens can save $5.75 million of that by releasing him. If they can get Smith for cheaper, they may decide to move on. Zrebiec reports Smith "never wanted to leave the Ravens" and still has ties to Baltimore.

Coach John Harbaugh anticipates Mike Wallace being back with the Ravens in 2017.

Wallace's name has been floated as a potential cut due to his massive $8 million cap number, which is the fifth-highest on the team. But after losing Steve Smith Sr. to retirement and with Kamar Aiken headed for free agency, Baltimore can't really afford to let Wallace walk out the door. Wallace and Breshad Perriman should open the year as Baltimore's top two receivers.

The Ravens would save $5.75 million in salary cap space by releasing Mike Wallace.

Wallace's $8 million cap charge is fifth highest on the Ravens, and the Baltimore Sun suggests Wallace's roster spot isn't safe despite leading the team in 2016 receiving yards (1,017). The Ravens also lost Steve Smith Sr. to retirement and may lose Kamar Aiken in free agency, perhaps increasing the odds they keep Wallace for one more year. Wallace turns 31 before the start of the season.
Jan 26 - 10:30 AM

Mike Wallace caught 4-of-4 targets for 33 yards in the Ravens' Week 17 loss to the Bengals.

Wallace showed big-play ability early in the season, but he faded as the year progressed and wound up scoring just one touchdown from Week 2 on. Owed $5.75 million in 2017, Wallace is questionable to return to the Ravens, who will want to increase Breshad Perriman's role. Wallace can still be a useful role player, but his deep game is evaporating. He'll turn 31 before next season.
Jan 1 - 4:27 PM

Mike Wallace caught 4-of-7 targets for 21 yards in the Ravens' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

Wallace's #RevengeGame looked to be on when he opened with back-to-back catches on slants on the first two plays of the game. He was held to just two catches for four yards the rest of the way, however, and took a backseat to Steve Smith Sr. and Dennis Pitta. Wallace has not scored a touchdown or topped 65 yards since Week 9. He will try to end those streaks in the season finale next week.

Mike Wallace caught 2-of-5 targets for 60 yards in the Ravens' Week 15 win over the Eagles.

Rain didn't play as much of a factor in this game as people expected, but it was a windy day and neither team reached 220 passing yards. Wallace led the team in receiving yards, while Steve Smith Sr. (7) led the Ravens in targets. Wallace will be a boom-bust WR3 option at Pittsburgh in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:55:00 PM

Mike Wallace caught 5-of-8 targets for 52 yards in the Ravens' Week 14 loss to the Patriots.

His eight targets were second-most on the team behind Kenneth Dixon's 11. Wallace was targeted on a couple deep balls, the rare ones Joe Flacco threw, but he was unable to catch either, with one being picked off and the other a flat-out drop by Wallace on a slight under-throw. Wallace should bounce back next week against a pitiful set of Eagles corners at home in Baltimore.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 12:32:00 AM

Mike Wallace notched six catches for 59 yards on seven targets Sunday in the Ravens' Week 13 win over the Dolphins.

Another status quo week for Wallace, who has logged between 57 and 62 yards in each of his last four games. At least the man is consistent. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Wallace hasn’t found the end zone during that span. He’s scored in three straight games against the Patriots, so something will have to give next week when the Ravens travel to Foxboro for Monday Night Football.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 05:41:00 PM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-4 targets for 57 yards in the Ravens' Week 12 win over the Bengals.

Wallace was quiet aside from a 31-yard reception late in the second quarter. In Sunday's game, all Baltimore pass catchers failed to clear 60 yards. Wallace is certainly capable of making big plays, but the Ravens' passing game has been dysfunctional for most of the season. It should perhaps be noted that Wallace tweeted "Seven Days!" shortly after Sunday's win, referring to the Ravens' Week 13 meeting with the Dolphins, which will be a #RevengeGame for Baltimore's theoretical deep threat against his former team.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 05:47:00 PM

Mike Wallace caught 5-of-10 targets for 62 yards in the Ravens' Week 11 loss to the Cowboys.

Wallace had a long catch for 27 yards but did very little else. He added a 13-yard run. Wallace fumbled over the middle after one of his catches, but teammate Kamar Aiken was there to scoop up the loose ball. Wallace continues to see healthy targets, even with Steve Smith back healthy. He'll be on the WR2/3 map next week in an easier test against the Bengals.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 07:21:00 PM

Mike Wallace corralled four-of-five targets for 59 yards Thursday in the Ravens' Week 10 win over the Browns.

Coming off a torrid three-game stretch that included at least 97 yards in each game, Wallace finally cooled off in Week 10. Wallace drew the toughest assignment of the night against Joe Haden, though he did beat Haden for a couple of catches including a 20-yarder to begin the second half. It’s worth noting that Wallace has seen a combined 11 targets in two games since Steve Smith Sr. made his return from an ankle injury. Prior to that, he had drawn at least nine targets in four straight games. Wallace will be on the WR2/3 borderline next week at Jerry’s World.
Fri, Nov 11, 2016 12:20:00 AM

Mike Wallace caught 4-of-6 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in Baltimore's Week 9 win over the Steelers.

Wallace's score was a 95-yarder, and the longest play in Ravens history. Working with a simple slant, Wallace clownsuited Artie Burns before stiff-arming Mike Mitchell. He was then off to the races. Wallace was so fired up after scoring, he missed a series with an "illness," later saying he was lightheaded from the emotion. Steve Smith Sr.'s return curbs Wallace's upside a bit, but he's cleared 97 yards in three straight games. He'll be an intriguing WR2 against the Browns in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 04:53:00 PM

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.

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.
