Mike Wallace caught six of his team-high eight targets for 67 yards against the Cowboys Saturday.
It was Wallace's first catches of the preseason, but it should have been an even bigger night. Wallace came wide open down the right sideline for what should have been a walk-in touchdown, but Tannehill missed him by a good five yards. Tannehill's accuracy concerns aside, Wallace should thrive as OC Bill Lazor finds creative ways to get him in space. He is a value in the seventh round. Aug 23 - 9:43 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero says he has not seen "significant improvement" in Mike Wallace's and Ryan Tannehill's chemistry.

Tannehill struggled to find Wallace deep last season, often underthrowing the speedy wideout. The pair has reportedly not been any more successful in camp. New OC Bill Lazor's system should use Wallace more creatively, but Tannehill has to become a better deep-ball thrower for Wallace to reach his full potential. Wallace is currently coming off the board early in the seventh round.

Mike Wallace will play in the Dolphins' second preseason game Saturday.

After missing early-camp time with a hamstring tweak, Wallace has practiced on several consecutive days and is all systems go. Playing the DeSean Jackson role in ex-Eagles assistant Bill Lazor's offense, Wallace is a steal at his 7.03 ADP. Julian Edelman and Brandin Cooks are going ahead of him.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday after sitting out the Dolphins' preseason opener.

He was held out of the exhibition as a precaution, but should be all systems go for game two. Wallace is a nice-looking value at his seventh-round ADP.
Aug 10 - 11:03 PM

The Miami Herald reports Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace are still struggling with their chemistry on deep balls.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, the duo's connection has remained comparable to 2013, where they were an anemic 6-for-36 on passes that travelled at least 20 yards in the air. It's certainly a concern after the pair didn't come anywhere close to striking up a reliable partnership last season. Nursing a hamstring injury, Wallace is unlikely to suit up for this week's preseason opener.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) returned to practice Monday.

Wallace missed only five days of work, confirming the tweak was extremely minor. He remains one of our favorite bounce-back candidates as he plays the DeSean Jackson role in the Dolphins' new Eagles-like offense. Wallace has been lining up all over the formation throughout offseason practices and training camp. Wallace quietly set a career high with 73 catches last season. If he stays healthy, we like his chances of pushing for 80-plus in 2014.

Mike Wallace's (hamstring) availability for Miami's preseason opener is in question.

Wallace will definitely be sidelined through the Dolphins' Saturday night intrasquad scrimmage, "and his status will be revisited next week." Wallace is a great bounce-back fantasy bet if healthy, but this injury is a concern.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) will not practice until at least next week.

Wallace said his hamstring was "tight" earlier this week and then sat out Wednesday's session. So he'll rest it for a few days, meaning he'll miss Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage. Wallace's tweak doesn't sound overly severe, but we hate when speed-reliant wideouts have soft-tissue problems in their legs. It's something to monitor once the prime bounce-back candidate does get back on the field.
Jul 31 - 8:25 AM

Mike Wallace has been moving around the formation and lining up on both sides during training camp.

"I think I’ll get to run everything," Wallace said. "I’ll be able to be a complete receiver instead of a one-dimensional guy." After running mostly go routes down the right sideline under old OC Mike Sherman, Wallace is "running a variety of patterns" under new play caller Bill Lazor. Wallace is currently being drafted as a WR3, but we like his odds for having a bounce-back breakout year.
Jul 27 - 11:20 AM

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin believes Mike Wallace has had a "really good offseason program."

Per reporter Andrew Abramson, Wallace was "usually the last one off the field" in spring practice. It's nice to see an actually established player be the subject of so many offseason puff pieces. Words and performances from pad-less practices typically mean very little once teams actually start gearing up for the season in training camp, but it's clear Wallace has been energized by the Dolphins' regime change at offensive coordinator. Bill Lazor seems to have a much firmer grip on Wallace's strengths than his clueless predecessor Mike Sherman.
Jun 19 - 2:09 PM

Mike Wallace has taken snaps out of the backfield in Dolphins OTAs.

Wallace, who has also lined up outside and in the slot, scored out of the formation last week. It's the latest indication new OC Bill Lazor is serious about using Wallace as a movable chess piece after predecessor Mike Sherman kept Wallace glued to the outside. We're still only in pad-less practices, but Lazor appears a good bet to make the Dolphins' offense far more watchable and competent in 2014.
Jun 9 - 1:28 PM

Mike Wallace confirmed he will frequently move around the formation in new Dolphins OC Bill Lazor's offense.

Lazor comes from Philly, where DeSean Jackson was a movable chess piece and played 30 percent of his 2013 snaps in the slot. "Nobody can ever key on me," Wallace said. "Last year, you kind of knew where I was every single play." Indeed. Wallace played 90 percent of his 2013 downs on the right side of Miami's formation. He's a sneaky bounce-back candidate with high-end WR2 upside.
Jun 6 - 1:30 AM

According to the Miami Herald, Mike Wallace is "clearly in better spirits" under new OC Bill Lazor.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, Wallace is jazzed about the flexibility Lazor's offense gives him to "change where he lines up." Former OC Mike Sherman was infamously uncreative with his use of his No. 1 receiver. Wallace is a strong bet to improve on his 73/930/5 2013 line.
Jun 2 - 5:07 PM

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker believes Mike Wallace could be primed for a big 2014.

Wallace posted career lows in yards per reception (12.7) and TDs (5) under Mike Sherman last season, but has bounce-back appeal in new OC Bill Lazor's more vertical-based attack. He's reportedly shown improved chemistry with Ryan Tannehill. Wallace is being used at all three receiver spots after playing just 3% of his snaps in the slot last year. With Lazor now calling plays, the Dolphins should manufacture more touches for Wallace.

May 31 - 6:58 PM

Mike Wallace admitted he "didn't feel like I knew what was going on" last season.

Observers of departed OC Mike Sherman's scheme didn't know what was going on either. He never even attempted to establish a run game, turned Ryan Tannehill into a pinata (league-high 58 sacks) and was strikingly uncreative with Wallace. New OC Bill Lazor is moving Wallace all over the formation, something that played a major role in DeSean Jackson's career-best 2013 season. Wallace says he feels "a lot more comfortable" and hasn't missed a single chance to work out with Tannehill this offseason. He's going to improve drastically on last year's career-worst 12.7 YPC and five touchdowns.
