Speaking Tuesday, Mike Wallace expressed frustration with the Dolphins' offense.
"Our offense was (expletive)," Wallace said of Miami's Sunday performance. When asked if he was encouraged by his 50-yard reception against the Jaguars, Wallace said that he was not. "That’s what I do. I’m built for that. I’m not really excited about it." Asked specifically if he was upset by the Dolphins' lack of deep balls, Wallace responded "I run the plays they call." Wallace is again being under-utilized, but this year it's more because of Ryan Tannehill's disastrous downfield accuracy than Miami's play-calling. The good news is that Wallace has scored in 5-of-7 games. He's a clear top-20 receiver with WR1 upside. Oct 28 - 7:24 PM

Date:

Mike Wallace caught 2-of-7 targets for 59 yards in the Dolphins' Week 8 win over the Jaguars.

The Dolphins' offense spent over half the afternoon wildly out of sync, but it didn't matter against an inept Blake Bortles. Wallace caught a 50-yard dime down the right sideline, but was — as usual — overthrown by Ryan Tannehill on a deep target on the left side of the field. The score-less game was just Wallace's second of the season. He'll remain a high-end WR2 for next week's date with the Chargers' banged-up secondary.
Oct 26 - 5:10 PM

Mike Wallace caught five passes for 46 yards and one touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 win over the Bears.

Wallace was targeted a team-high eight times on the day. He beat CB Tim Jennings to the corner of the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Wallace and Ryan Tannehill continue to struggle on deep looks, but Wallace keeps scoring touchdowns and is on pace for a career-high 13 of them. He's a legit WR1/2. Wallace has a tasty date in Jacksonville next week.
Oct 19 - 5:12 PM

Mike Wallace says he talked to OC Bill Lazor about calling more deep balls.

According to Lazor via Wallace, "They will come." Wallace says the Dolphins have worked more on the deep pass this week than they have since training camp. Wallace isn't the problem. Ryan Tannehill simply is horrible at throwing the deep ball. Over the last two seasons, Tannehill has completed just 20-of-79 passes that traveled 20-plus yards through the air for 660 yards, four touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Those numbers are near the bottom of the league.
Oct 17 - 10:25 AM

Mike Wallace caught five passes for 67 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Packers.

In this Bill Lazor offense, Wallace is getting used as more of a YAC player than a deep threat. That's just fine, as there's not much chemistry between Wallace and Ryan Tannehill on bombs. It's led to fine consistency for Wallace, as he has a touchdown in four of five games and is averaging 8.6 targets per day. He'll be a strong WR2 against the Bears in Week 7.
Oct 12 - 5:20 PM

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

An every-week WR2, Wallace should be in fantasy lineups versus Green Bay.
Oct 10 - 3:51 PM

Mike Wallace (hamstring) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Wallace has been "limited" for practically every practice this season, but has been fine on Sundays. He's a WR2.
Oct 9 - 5:55 PM

Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Wallace has been on the injury report all season, but he's yet to miss a game and is on pace for an 80-984-12 line. He's a weekly WR2 in Bill Lazor's offense.
Oct 8 - 4:33 PM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-4 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 4 win over the Raiders.

Wallace was held to no gain on his lone rushing attempt, and also fumbled. Thankfully for his fantasy owners, the Dolphins recovered. Wallace's score was a screen he took 13 yards to the house, breaking three tackles in the process. Wallace has looked considerably more willing to take on contact this season, and is now on pace for 80 catches, 984 yards and 12 touchdowns. Wallace is unlikely to keep up at that scoring rate, but is very much a threat for 80 grabs, and should easily finish with more than 1,000 yards. New OC Bill Lazor is scheming 60 Minutes the ball on a weekly basis.
Sep 28 - 5:41 PM

Mike Wallace (hamstring) is probable for Week 4.

Wallace was limited in practice this week for rest purposes. He's a WR2 against the Raiders in London.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Wallace should be fine for Sunday's matchup against the Raiders. He has at least 80 total yards and/or a touchdown in each of Miami's first three games.
Sep 24 - 7:42 PM

Mike Wallace caught 5-of-12 targets for 74 yards and added a 12-yard rushing attempt in the Dolphins' Week 3 loss to the Chiefs.

The usage and targeting were nice to see, but Ryan Tannehill frequently misfired on throws to Wallace, particularly at the intermediate level. Still, with at least 80 total yards and/or a touchdown in each of Miami's first three games, Wallace continues to pay serious fantasy dividends for drafters who bought him at a lowered ADP. He'll be a rock-solid WR2 against the Raiders in Week 4.
Sep 21 - 8:53 PM

Mike Wallace had five catches for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Buffalo.

Wallace couldn't get anything going downfield with Ryan Tannehill, with a long catch of just 18 yards. His touchdown came on a highlight one-handed catch in the back of the end-zone. He tied Brain Hartline and Charles Clay for a team-high eight targets. It's the second straight game Wallace has scored a touchdown. Wallace is a WR2 for Week 3 against Kansas City.
Sep 14 - 5:53 PM

Mike Wallace (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 2.

Wallace's Week 1 usage suggests he has borderline WR1 potential. He saw 11 targets and beat Darrelle Revis for a touchdown. Wallace nearly beat Revis for a second score, but Ryan Tannehill just barely overthrew him out of bounds.
