Mike Wallace might not be ready for preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5:48 pm ET) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace missed a second straight day of practice with a sore hamstring and won't play in Saturday's scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium, reports the Miami Herald. His status for the Aug. 8 preseason opener against the Falcons is uncertain.

The paper said the injury is not serious, but "obviously slows the growth of Wallace's and quarterback Ryan Tannehill's ability to team up on dynamic long passes."


Hamstring sidelines Mike Wallace until next week


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9:10 am ET) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace will not practice until next week, a source told the Miami Herald on Thursday. Wallace won't scrimmage against his teammates at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday. 

Wallace had 930 yards and five touchdowns in his first season with the Dolphins in 2013 but is expected to be a little more prolific playing in the team's new and improved fast-break offense. 


Mike Wallace likes the variety in new offense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Dolphins wideout Mike Wallace was planted on the right side last season. This year, in Bill Lazor's offense, he's moving all over the formation

“I love it,” Wallace told the Sun-Sentinel. "He just brings a different type of excitement to the table. I love [former OC Mike] Sherman, but coach Lazor’s a real different type of guy. So I’m really excited about it."


Mike Wallace: I might return kickoffs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, who struggled to connect with Ryan Tannehill last year, told Sky Sports he's willing to try anything to make his presence felt.

"I might get back there for kickoff returns," Wallace said. "I just want to be on the field making an impact for my team. I've always wanted to return kicks ever since I've been in the NFL."

Wallace returned kicks in the preseason when he was a Steeler, but there'e been no indication Miami will use him that way in the preseason or regular season, according to NFL.com. "At this point of my career, I just want to get the ball in my hands and make some plays," Wallace said.


Has the Ryan Tannehill-Mike Wallace connection been fixed?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) There were issues between Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and receiver Mike Wallace connecting on long passes last season. In 2013 Wallace had just five catches good for 40-plus yards, four of them legitimate deep lobs (and all of those four slightly underthrown). A big issue for Miami this offseason is to fix the deep ball for Tannehill and have him connect more often with the blazing-fast Wallace. 

According to ESPN, there's no visual evidence of an improvement. Over seven practices open to the media including the team's recent three-day minicamp, Tannehill has failed to connect with Wallace. He's tried but misfired. 

The team, including the receiver involved, insists that it's a non-issue. 

"(You) haven't been here. ... We hit those, about three or four of them so far," Wallace said. "Me and him haven't personally thrown that many. If we've thrown like six, we've hit on like four."

ESPN also notes that Wallace "appears determined" to have a big year. He's put in extra time after practice to work on his hands and received praise from his head coach, Joe Philbin, who said he's "doing the little things that can make the difference when the season comes around."


Mike Wallace will line up in different spots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace likes the fact that Bill Lazor's offense moves him around the formation, reports the Miami Herald. Last season, Wallace told the paper, defenses "knew exactly where he was going to be."

That flexibility is one reason why Wallace is clearly in "better spirits" this year, the paper said.


Mike Wallace admits he was confused last year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace admitted he wasn't on the same page with quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the offense last year. Wallace is more optimistic about new coordinator Bill Lazor's scheme.

"I didn’t feel like I knew what was going on” last season, Wallace told the Palm Beach Post. "It’s still new, just because it’s a new offense, but at the same time I feel a lot more comfortable."

Wallace and Tannehill have worked out together throughout the offseason, hoping to build better chemistry and timing.


Dolphins draft WR Jarvis Landry


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 63 pick in the NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected receiver Jarvis Landry from LSU.

Landry could compete to be the No. 3 receiver for the Dolphins this year behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline. He could challenge Brandon Gibson, Rishard Matthews and Armon Binns for playing time right away.

Landry had a big season in 2013 with 77 catches for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns. He isn't overly fast (he ran a 4.77 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine), but he does have good hands and is physical.


Report: Some Dolphins coaches not big fans of Mike Wallace


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Several Dolphins believe some of their coaches aren’t big fans of receiver Mike Wallace, reports the Miami Herald. If true, it would help explain why the team is looking so closely at receivers in the upcoming draft.


Mike Wallace: New offense is 'my style'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, a disappointment last season after signing a $60 million contract, said the team's new offensive scheme fits his strengths, reports the Miami Herald.

“My style: Big-play offense,” Wallace said, referring to first-year coordinator Bill Lazor’s system. “I see Ryan [Tannehill is] excited about it. He’s called me about eight, nine times.

“I just want to make some plays for my team,” Wallace continued. “Go out and make some plays for my team and have a much better year than last year. We can't have the kind of year we had last year. We need to be on the same page.”

Wallace caught a career-high 73 passes last season, but set career lows in yards per catch (12.7) and touchdowns (5).


Dolphins shopping Mike Wallace again


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) The Dolphins have renewed attempts to trade receiver Mike Wallace, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. It's a "tough trade," according to La Canfora, because Wallace is scheduled to make $15 million in base salary this year.

Dolphins shoot down trade rumors


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) A Dolphins source emphatically denied a published report that the team is open to trading receiver Mike Wallace, top pass rusher Cameron Wake and defensive end Dion Jordan, according to the Miami Herald.

Dolphins could trade Mike Wallace, Cameron Wake


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Dolphins could be open to trading No. 1 receiver Mike Wallace and top pass rusher Cameron Wake, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that "through conversations with numerous decision-makers from other clubs ... Miami looks to retool its roster under a new regime." He writes that the Dolphins need to revamp their offensive line, possibly by moving up the draft board to land an offensive tackle.

Sources close to Wallace and Wake expressed a belief that a trade would not be a shock this offseason, though Wallace's hefty contract would limit his options.


Mike Wallace stresses chemistry with Ryan Tannehill


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace stressed that he needs to be on the same page with quarterback Ryan Tannehill this offseason, according to the Miami Herald.

Wallace said the two need to "get the deep ball going." He added that he should have had 15 to 20 more touchdowns last season. "If you press me, you have no shot to cover me," Wallace said. "Once I get you to stop your feet, it’s over." Wallace said he would like to get together with Tannehill each month of the offseason to work on their chemistry.


Mike Wallace held in check despite score


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace scored a touchdown and established a new career-high in receptions in Week 17, but still managed to make little overall impact in a 20-7 loss to the Jets.

Wallace's five receptions gave him 73 for the season, besting his previous career-high from 2011. He managed to pick up just 25 yards on those five receptions, though one of them went for a 5-yard touchdown in the second quarter, his fifth of the season.

Wallace finished the season with 930 yards on 73 receptions, his second straight year finishing below 1,000 yards. 


Dolphins receiving duo nearing twin milestones


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) The Dolphins enter Week 17 against the Jets with plenty to play for, including a potential playoff spot. Wide receivers Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace are playing for something else as well this Sunday; a spot in team history.

Hartline leads the team with 978 receiving yards on the season, with Wallace right behind him at 905. If both players reach 1,000 yards, they will become the first Dolphins duo to do so since 1991, and just the third to do so in the team's history.

Wallace has the tougher road ahead of him to reach the milestone, with 95 yards in front of him. All Hartline has to do is replicate his performance against the Jets in Week 13 (127 yards), while Wallace needs to do a bit more than his seven-catch, 82-yard showing in that game.

Few teams throw the ball more than the Dolphins, and the Jets have proven vulnerable against the pass, so both players have a good chance to put up numbers. Against a Jets defense that allows the ninth-most Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, both Hartline and Wallace have value for Fantasy purposes. Consider Wallace a solid starter, while Hartline remains more of a low-end choice.


Mike Wallace held in check in ugly loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace struggled to get anything going in Week 16 against the Bills, in a 19-0 loss.

Wallace hauled in four of the 11 passes thrown his way for 38 yards. He was not the only one to struggle in the game, as the Dolphins' offense managed just 103 total yards in the shutout loss.

Wallace hasn't been exactly what the Dolphins hoped for in signing him to a big free-agency contract, but he could still finish with 1,000-plus yards on the season. He enters Week 17 against the Jets with 68 receptions for 905 yards and four touchdowns.  


Mike Wallace looking to continue strong play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace has finally found his stride over the last few weeks, a good sign for Miami as they battle for a playoff spot. He will look to keep it up in Week 16, when the Dolphins head to Buffalo to face the Bills Sunday.

Wallace has three touchdowns over the last four games, and is averaging 83.3 yards per game in that span. He had a solid performance against the Bills the last time these two teams faced off, hauling in five passes for 76 yards, who hopefully he can keep that up against a defense that allows the eighth-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers.

Given how poorly he started the season, Fantasy owners might be hesitant to trust Wallace in a big game. However, all three of our Fantasy experts have Wallace ranked in the top-25 for wide receivers for Week 16, so he can be considered a solid starting Fantays option. 


Mike Wallace scores again Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace bounced back from a subpar performance with his third strong game in the last four in Week 15 against the Patriots.

Wallace, who had just two receptions for 19 yards last week, was considerably more productive Sunday. He hauled in six of nine passes thrown his way for 105 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown at the end of the second quarter.

Wallace has been a disappointment in his first season in Miami, but a strong second-half push has him within striking distance of a 1,000-yard season. He enters Week 16 against the Bills with 64 receptions for 867 yards and four touchdowns. 


Inconsistent Mike Wallace a risk for Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace seemed to have found a rhythm with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, at least until last week. He will try to get back on track in Week 15 against the Patriots Sunder.

Wallace was held to just two receptions for 19 yards, after totaling 209 yards and two touchdowns in his previous two games. He will try to turn it around against a solid passing defense that held him to just 41 yards on three receptions in Week 8.

Opposing wide receivers are averaging just 20.5 Fantasy points per game against the Patriots this season, good for 13th in the league. In spite of that, they have had a number of high-profile blowups against No. 1 receivers in recent weeks. Andre Johnson (121 yards), Demaryius Thomas (41 yards, one touchdown) and Josh Gordon (151 yards, one touchdown) have all found success against New England over the last three weeks.

Despite a matchup that might offer some potential, Wallace's inconsistent play makes him a risky Fantasy start in Week 15. 


Former teammates hold Mike Wallace in check


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) If Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was looking to show his former team what they are missing, he probably had a better performance in mind than what he ended up with in Week 14 against the Steelers Sunday.

Wallace's run of solid play came to an end, as he was held to just two catches for 19 yards. His scoring streak came to an end at two games, leaving him with just three in his first season since joining the Dolphins on a big free agent contract.

Wallace was showing signs of coming around in recent weeks, and will try to get back on track in Week 15. The Dolphins face the Patriots next Sunday. 


Mike Wallace prepared for former team


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace seems to have found his way over the last few weeks, but he probably hopes to have saved the best for Week 14, when he faces his former teammates in Pittsburgh. He told ESPN.com Tuesday he is expecting to hear from the crowd after leaving Pittsburgh as a free agent.

"I already know how my welcome is going to be -- it's not going to be too pretty," Wallace said after Tuesday's practice. "I'm looking forward to it, though. It's exciting."

Wallace enters the week riding his best two-game stretch of the season. He has 12 receptions for 209 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks, and now gets to face a Steelers secondary that has struggled recently.

Four of the Steelers' last five opponents have racked up at least 24 Fantasy points from the receiving crops, a feat that was matched just once in the first seven games of the season. During this five-game stretch, opposing wideouts are averaging 29.8 Fantasy points per game, a mark that would lead the league for a full season.

Wallace has been a pretty big disappointment in his first season in Miami, but his recent play is encouraging. Consider him a solid starting Fantasy option for Week 14. 


Mike Wallace finds the end zone again in Week 13


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace had another strong performance in Week 13, as he scored for the second game in a row in a 23-3 win over the Jets.  

Coming off a breakout, 127-yard performance, Wallace hauled in seven passes for 82 yards Sunnday. Wallace scored his touchdown from 28 yards out, after he broke a tackle and scampered into the end zone. He brought in all but two of the nine passes thrown his way.

Wallace has 743 yards on the season, 209 of which have come over the last two weeks. He enters Week 14 against the Steelers with three touchdowns on the season. 


Mike Wallace looks to keep rolling vs. vulnerable Jets secondary


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace has been inconsistent throughout this season, but he clearly still instills some sense of fear in opposing defense. Jets safety Ed Reed told Newsday as much Tuesday in the run up to the teams' Week 13 matchup.

"He definitely is. He's a threat for all snaps. He's their go-to-guy and he's someone we got to make sure we have eyes on at all times," Reed said.

Reed is particularly vulnerable to deep attacks, as he gave up a long touchdown pass in Week 12. The Jets' passing defense has been an issue for much of the season, and they allow 182.8 yards per game to opposing wide receivers. Additionally, only five teams give up more Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers than the Jets, who have surrendered 25.3 per contest.

Wallace has been a big-time disappointment this season, so Fantasy owners are obviously hesitant to trust him. Still, given the improved chemistry he showed with Ryan Tannehill last week, he might be worth the risk with a good matchup on the way. 


Mike Wallace goes for long score in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace finally broke out in Week 12, as he became just the third wide receiver to score against the Panthers in a 20-16 loss.

Wallace hit two plays of 50-plus yards, one of which went for a 53-yard touchdown in the first half. The Panthers' secondary had great trouble keeping Wallace in front of them all day, and he and quarterback Ryan Tannehill probably left at least one additional touchdown on the board as they continue to struggle to get on the same page on deep passes.

Wallace still finished with his best game of the season, with five catches for a season-high 127 yards and a touchdown. He enters Week 13 against the Jets with 661 yards and 49 catches, with two touchdowns in his first season in Miami.
