Mike Wallace (back) is questionable for Week 7 against the Vikings.
Wallace hasn't practiced the last two days after taking a helmet to his back in last week's loss to the Bears. A decision on Wallace's status will probably go down to the wire. If he sits out, it would only be Wallace's second absence in nine NFL seasons. Oct 20 - 2:43 PM

Mike Wallace (back) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

Wallace was downgraded to DNP Thursday and Friday, so his status for his return to Minnesota is in question. Expect Wallace to do everything he can to play in this #RevengeGame. Wallace is a last-gasp WR4 option if he plays.

Mike Wallace (back) said he expects to play against the Vikings in Week 7.

Wallace was downgraded to DNP at Thursday's practice but still plans to suit up against the Vikes. "My back is a little sore," he said. "It's like a bone bruise. It should be fine for Sunday." The Ravens are desperate for healthy bodies right now Breshad Perriman concussed and Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) limited to non-contact work at practice. It's worth noting that Wallace has missed just one game in nine NFL seasons.

Mike Wallace (back) was sidelined at Thursday's practice.

It's a downgrade after Wallace was limited on Wednesday. It throws his Week 7 status into question, though it's possible the Ravens are just managing their 31-year-old receiver's reps. We should have a firm idea of Wallace's status by the time the Ravens release their Friday injury report.

Mike Wallace (back) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) was also limited while Breshad Perriman (concussion) was listed as a DNP. Baltimore's receiving corps is running on fumes right now. If he plays, Wallace will have a tough matchup against Xavier Rhodes and the Vikings in Week 7.
Oct 18 - 5:01 PM

Mike Wallace caught 3-of-5 targets for 30 yards in the Ravens' Week 6 loss to the Bears.

Wallace has popped up for two spiked weeks this season, but otherwise he has been a dud. He'll be an obvious avoid against Xavier Rhodes' Vikings in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 5:13 PM

Mike Wallace secured all three of his targets for 133 yards Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 5 win over the Raiders.

He was out-targeted by Jeremy Maclin, Buck Allen and Ben Watson but still managed a game-high 133 yards including 106 before halftime. Wallace’s 133 yards were more than he had in his previous four games combined. He roasted Sean Smith for a 52-yard pick-up on Baltimore’s first play from scrimmage while breaking free for a 54-yard gain later in the half. It might be a stretch to say Wallace is all the way back—the Raiders were playing without their two best cornerbacks, David Amerson and Gareon Conley. But he’s certainly looked much better over his past two games (nine catches for 188 yards and a touchdown). Wallace will be in the WR3 discussion next week against the Bears.
Oct 8 - 9:00 PM

Mike Wallace corralled six-of-10 targets for a game-high 55 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 4 loss to the Steelers.

Wallace had a predictably up-and-down day against his former team. He reeled in a dying quail wobbler from Joe Flacco on the Ravens’ opening drive then took his eye off the ball and dropped what would have been a huge gain in the second quarter. Wallace redeemed himself in the second half by pulling in a 16-yard touchdown on a pass Flacco threaded between a pair of defenders. Sunday ended up being Wallace’s most productive game of the season, though obviously that wasn’t a very high bar to clear. We’ll see what he can muster up next week against the Raiders.
Oct 1 - 5:22 PM

Mike Wallace caught 1-of-5 targets for six yards in the Ravens' Week 3 loss to the Jaguars in London.

He also rushed once for four yards. Not that this performance was his fault with the entire offense laying an egg, but Wallace now has three catches for 21 yards through three weeks. He can be safely dropped in all redraft leagues.
Sep 24 - 12:52 PM

Mike Wallace said he "needs the rock" more moving forward.

Wallace has been targeted a total of four times through two games, securing two of them for a total of 15 yards. "I play wide receiver," Wallace said. "I don't play to block. But at the same time, when you're winning, it makes it all good. I'm going to find ways to make plays. I will make plays." Jeremy Maclin is the new No. 1 in Baltimore, and the Ravens are running the ball more. Wallace will obviously be better, but he's nothing more than a WR5 in fantasy right now.
Sep 20 - 3:24 PM

Mike Wallace caught 1-of-3 targets for seven yards in the Ravens' Week 2 win over the Browns.

It is a concerning stat line because Joe Flacco played well today. Wallace now has yardage totals of 8 and 7 through two games. Ahead of a Week 3 date with Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, Wallace belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Sep 17 - 6:37 PM

Mike Wallace secured his lone target for eight yards Sunday in the Ravens’ Week 1 win over the Bengals.

Wallace got some good cardio today but obviously wasn’t much of a factor as the Ravens attempted 42 runs compared to only 17 passes. He’ll be a boom-or-bust WR3 versus Cleveland in Week 2.
Sep 10 - 5:08 PM

Mike Wallace caught 1-of-4 targets for seven yards in the Ravens' third preseason game.

The 31-year-old speed demon finishes the summer with three grabs for 40 yards. He was one of the lucky ones in the Ryan Mallett "led" offense. It was hard to conduct a fair evaluation of any Raven this preseason, but Wallace still has his wheels. Provided Joe Flacco's back heals, Wallace will be a high-end WR4 for fantasy purposes.
Aug 26 - 10:13 PM

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.
