Mike Wallace looks good for Week 3


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Mike Wallace is off to a great start this season with 12 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns in two games against the Patriots and Bills.

He's excelled despite coverage from Darrelle Revis and Stephon Gilmore, and he has at least eight targets in each outing.

The Chiefs have already allowed three receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league with Kendall Wright in Week 1 and Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in Week 2.

If Wallace can once again be a focal point of the passing attack then he should come through with another quality outing at home.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Mike Wallace finds the end zone again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was a bit less productive this time out, but still found the end zone for the second game in a row in a 29-10 loss to the Bills in Week 2.

Wallace was targeted eight times and caught five passes for 56 yards to the lead team on a day when the passing game wasn't really clicking. He made scored the team's only touchdown in the third quarter, as he made a one-handed grab to secure a 7-yard touchdown.

Wallace has 137 yards on 12 receptions and two touchdowns in the first two games of the season, and will try to extend his scoring streak to three games in Week 3 against the Chiefs. 


Hamstring a non-issue for Mike Wallace


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace is active for Week 2 against the Bills, despite dealing with a hamstring issue at times during the week in practice. He was considered probable for the game despite the injury, so his participation comes as little surprise.

Mike Wallace expected to play in Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was limited in practice yet again Friday, but the team seems to be expecting him to play in Week 2 against the Bills Sunday.

Despite being limited every day of the week in practice as a result of the injury, Wallace is officially considered probable for Sunday's game. 


Mike Wallace limited again Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was limited in practice again Thursday.

Wallace is dealing with a hamstring injury. There's a sense that Wallace will play despite the lack of work in practice. The Dolphins are set to take on the Bills Week 2. 


Knowshon Moreno, Mike Wallace limited Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Dolphins running back Knowshon Moreno (shoulder) and wideout Mike Wallace (hamstring) were limited in Wednesday's practice ahead of their Week 2 matchup at Buffalo.

Mike Wallace tweaked hamstring during opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace played much of Sunday's opener against the Patriots with a hamstring issue, he revealed after the team's 33-20 Week 1 victory.

"I tweaked my hamstring kind of early in the game so I was kind of on half a leg," he told the Palm Beach Post after the game. "So it kind of hard for me to build up the power I wanted to and I couldn’t run as far as I wanted to but I gave it everything I could to fight for this team."

Wallace hauled in seven of 11 passes thrown his way for 81 yards and a touchdown. The injury does not appear serious enough to cause him problems in Week 2 against the Bills. 


Mike Wallace shows life in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace got on the same page as Ryan Tannehill in the team's opener Sunday, a 33-20 win over the Patriots.

The duo failed to hook up on any long receptions, but Wallace was still productive overall Sunday. He hauled in seven of the 11 passes thrown his way in the win for 81 yards, with a long of 22. He found the end zone once on a 14-yard pass in the third quarter as the Dolphins worked their way back from an early deficit.

Wallace and Tannehill had trouble hooking up in their first year together, but Sunday's performance provides plenty of reason for optimism. The Dolphins' next game comes in Week 2 in Buffalo next Sunday.  


Matchup not in Mike Wallace's favor in opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace closed out an otherwise disappointing first season in Miami with a flourish, but he seems unlikely to keep his momentum going in Week 1 against the Patriots, as he has a date with Revis Island this Sunday.

Wallace told The Miami Herald he is excited for the chance to matchup with new Patriots defensive back Darrelle Revis, though that might just be because he doesn't have much history against him. Wallace put up seven catches for 102 yards in a 2010 matchup against Revis' Jets, but was held to just one catch for 6 yards in a matchup in the postseason that year.

The Dolphins' offense this season is expected to line Wallace up all over the field to take advantage of his speed, but he is sure to find himself matched up with Revis plenty. Our Jamey Eisenberg hit Wallace with the "Sit 'Em" tag for Week 1, and neither he nor Dave Richard has Wallace among the top-36 wide receivers for Sunday's game.

Turn to better matchups if you have them to open the season. 


Coming off big game, Mike Wallace promises more to come


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught six of eight targets for 67 yards Saturday against the Cowboys. But he and quarterback Ryan Tannehill failed to hook up on a deep ball, a recurring theme from last year.

"It's going to come," Wallace told ESPN.com. "It's going to present itself again in two weeks (during the regular season). We're going to have a lot more opportunities. Hopefully, we can cash in and get a lot more touchdowns than last year."


Mike Wallace 'grinding' as he eyes redemption


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace was known as a "waste of money" last year after receiving $30 million guaranteed in free agency. According to CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist Pete Prisco, Wallace is ready to prove his worth in Year 2 in Miami.

"Grinding is what he is doing more of now," Prisco wrote. "He stays after practice to work on the JUGS machine. He has added five pounds of muscle to get stronger, yet says he hasn't dropped any of his speed.

"The route running is better, more precise," Prisco added. "The adjustment of being on a new team, playing with new players, is also behind him."

Wallace will move around the formation and run more than go routes under new coordinator Bill Lazor. "This offense gives me the chance to run every single route in the route tree," Wallace said. "I get to move around. I like the speed of the offense."


Mike Wallace not on the same page with Ryan Tannehill


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace showed some struggles in his first preseason game Saturday night against Tampa Bay.

Wallace was not on the same page with Ryan Tannehill early on, as he failed to come down with a deep pass on the opening drive. He also dropped a bubble screen pass late in the first quarter. He worked the first couple of series with the first-team offense but finished without a grab despite being targeted three times.

Dolphins sit out three starters for preseason opener


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) The Dolphins will be without three offensive starters Friday night against Atlanta in preseason action, per the Miami Herald. The team held out wide receivers Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline and tight end Charles Clay.

Mike Wallace returns to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2014) Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace, who missed most of last week with a hamstring injury, returned to practice Monday, reports ESPN.com. It is not yet known if he'll play in Friday's game against the Falcons.

Mike Wallace might not be ready for preseason opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) 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
(7/31/2014) 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
