Vikings | Adrian Peterson working out

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:29:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has been working out with RB Jerick McKinnon and WR Mike Wallace since offseason workouts ended.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson appears to be ready to play for the Vikings this season and is preparing for training camp. Peterson should be considered a first-round draft pick and may be one of the safer options available.

Vikings | Mike Wallace bonding with QB

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 16:28:00 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace has been working to develop a bond with QB Teddy Bridgewater this offseason. "We've linked up at the crib a couple of times, about three or four times already since I've been here and just vibe. You can talk a little bit about football but really just getting a connection and a bond. On the field, it's going to come naturally," said Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is working to establish a bond similar to what he had with Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, after he never really gelled with Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill. Wallace is currently being drafted as a WR3, but he has WR2 potential.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with new WR

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:23:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said he has been spending extra time with WR Mike Wallace and working on the routes they used during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater had some solid outings in the second half of the 2014 season and is looking to improve his play. Bridgewater could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season and could be a starting option against certain opponents. Wallace will be a start for the Vikings and could have more fantasy value if the team throws more deep passes. Wallace could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts.

Vikings | Mike Wallace digs new offense

Thu, 28 May 2015 09:34:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace feels at home in Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner's vertical passing system, comparing it to his time in Pittsburgh. Wallace is currently working at flanker and expects to move all over the field. He is expected to serve as the deep threat of the passing game, but Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer likes Wallace's explosiveness from any route, including screen passes.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace has struggled to consistently post strong fantasy numbers, which is a trend owners can expect to continue in 2015. However, he is in the best situation we've seen in some time for the easily disgruntled wideout. When happy, he tends to be productive. Consider Wallace a WR3 in non-PPR and a fourth in reception-rewarding formats.

Vikings | Mike Wallace makes bold claim

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:12:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace proclaimed himself the fastest player in the NFL Tuesday, May 5, per the Pioneer Press. "If somebody feels foggy about that, we can [race]. I'm never going to back down from competition,'' said Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace will have a lot of work to do this season if he wants to prove himself correct. Wallace surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in two of his last three seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but posted a high of 930 yards in his three-year stint with the Miami Dolphins. With plenty of mid-level receiving options in Minnesota, Wallace will have to get off to a strong start or risk being buried on the depth chart. At this point, Wallace should be considered as not much more than a late-round flier with WR3 upside in 10 or 12 team leagues.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace traded by Miami

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 16:20:50 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been traded by the Dolphins to the Minnesota Vikings for a fifth-round draft choice, according a source. The Vikings will also receive a seventh-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins were able to trade Wallace after they acquired Kenny Stills earlier in the day. Stills could have a chance to start based on what the team does at the position. He should be considered as a No. 3 wide receiver in drafts next season. Jarvis Landry should also receive a boost in value with the move and could be a middle-round pick.

Vikings | Minnesota acquires Mike Wallace

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 16:14:03 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been traded to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for a fifth-round draft choice, according a source. The Vikings will also receive a seventh-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace likely will be one of the starting wide receivers for the Vikings next season. He may take a small hit in terms of his fantasy value but could still be seen as a No. 3 receiver for owners next season.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace on trade block

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 12:17:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has been placed on the trade block after the team acquired WR Kenny Stills in a trade.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace probably will be playing with another team next season, and his fantasy value will be determined by which team he joins. Wallace likely will be a middle-round pick in drafts next season if he is able to find a starting job with a team.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace open to restructure?

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 22:06:10 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace indicated Tuesday, March 10, that he might be open to restructuring his deal. "Like I said I am willing to help out the team, but at the same time I'm not about to do nothing crazy either. I'll definitely help the team out, but it has to be reasonable - what I feel is reasonable," Wallace said.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain what it will take and whether he will be back with the Dolphins or if he’ll be playing elsewhere in 2015. Once things become clearer his fantasy outlook will become less murky.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace return more likely?

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 12:21:15 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace's return to Miami is becoming more likely as the free agency period progresses. Wallace has said he's open to coming back to Miami and his contract doesn't seem to be as big of an issue as previously thought.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins have already lost WRs Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson, so it could be harder for the Dolphins to afford losing Wallace than it would be to afford keeping him. If he remains in Miami, he should be considered a solid WR2.
