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.
Sep 12 - 2:55 PM

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

We haven't seen any reason for concern over Wallace's Week 2 status. He's in the WR2 conversation.
Sep 11 - 5:51 PM

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

Wallace suffered the hamstring injury in Sunday's win over the Patriots. He was able to play through it, but played only 53 snaps. The fact that Wallace practiced is a good sign for his Week 2 status. He'll be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 10 - 5:45 PM

Mike Wallace caught 7-of-11 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 1 win over the Patriots.

Wallace had a different demeanor than he did in 2013, trying to break tackles while at one point even lowering his shoulder. It wasn't all roses. He lost a fumble, and was horribly overthrown on a deep ball pick by Ryan Tannehill, but facing the league's top corner, Wallace had the looks of a player who's going to be much more productive this season. OC Bill Lazor appears to know how to use his No. 1 receiver. Wallace is a WR2.
Sep 7 - 5:33 PM

Mike Wallace expects to see a lot of Darrelle Revis in Sunday's Week 1 opener against the Patriots.

It remains to be seen whether the Patriots will task Revis with shadowing Wallace, but we'd imagine they will, especially with Brandon Browner suspended the first four games. They'll let Logan Ryan or Alfonzo Dennard handle Brian Hartline. While we like Wallace to bounce back this season in a far more creative offense under OC Bill Lazor, he's more WR3/4 than WR2/3 this week.
Sep 2 - 8:17 PM

Mike Wallace estimates the Dolphins revealed "maybe 15 percent" of their playbook in the preseason.

New OC Bill Lazor's system came across as relatively tame in August, while coach Joe Philbin said the tempo wasn't where he wanted it to be. However, aside from Ryan Tannehill and Wallace's continued inability to get on the same page on deep balls, there's been no reason for alarm. A Joe Gibbs disciple and understudy for Chip Kelly last year, Lazor's system should be a major improvement on Mike Sherman's.
Sep 2 - 5:48 PM

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.
Aug 16 - 10:51 AM

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.
Aug 14 - 11:06 AM

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.
Aug 5 - 11:24 PM

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.
