Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (undisclosed) said he was limited in practice Tuesday, July 29, because he is dealing with some muscle soreness. He declined to reveal what part of his body was bothering him.

Fantasy Tip: We'll have more on this as more details are relayed. Wallace, all things equal, is a WR3 candidate in non-PPR games with a decent ceiling in Miami's new offense.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace connect

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:44:28 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill and WR Mike Wallace connected on a deep throw on the first day of training camp Friday, July 25. According to Omar Kelly, the two connected on one deep ball in five weeks during last year's camp activities.

Fantasy Tip: A positive note from someone paid to watch such things. Bill Lazor's new offense and another year of experience between the two could lead a fantasy rebound for both this season, making them fine buy-low candidates.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace wants to return kicks

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 10:28:29 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he could return kicks in 2014, something he has always wanted to do. "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."

Fantasy Tip: While Wallace may want to return kicks, there has been no indication that he will for the team this season. If he does get the chance, it could increase his value. Stay tuned to training camp to see if Wallace does get the chance.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace likes flexibility

Wed, 04 Jun 2014 18:19:45 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace is feeling better this offseason, and a big reason is that he loves the system of offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. The new OC gives Wallace flexibility to change where he lines up, something former offensive coordinator Mike Sherman would not permit him to do last season. Wallace said that allowed opposing defenses to know exactly where he was going to be on the field.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace seems to have a better comfort level with this year's offense and OC, and that might lead to a resurgence. Fantasy owners might undervalue him based upon last season's numbers, but he still has WR1 potential in this league. Wallace is a nice sleeper heading into 2014.

Tue, 27 May 2014 09:43:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said WR Mike Wallace looks and feels more comfortable in his second year with the team.

Dolphins | Will look to compete more deep passes

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 13:10:00 -0700

Miami Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin said completing deep passes will be one of the team's focal points moving forward, because Ryan Tannehill completed only six of his 36 passes to WR Mike Wallace that traveled 20 yards or more. "Some of it's timing between the guys. Some is ball location. Some is the receiver being in the exact right spot. We've got to increase our explosive plays. We've got to score more points. We just have to. [Deep balls are] a part of it. It's not the only part. We've sliced up those routes and studied why and how. We definitely addressed that."

Dolphins | Mike Wallace wants offense to change

Sun, 26 Jan 2014 07:27:40 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said he wants the offense to change to use the deep ball more in 2014. "We have to," Wallace said. "Definitely have got to get the deep ball going. That's the difference between winning and losing a couple games. I should have had 15 or 20 more touchdowns. And that's being modest. If you press me, you have no shot to cover me. Once I get you to stop your feet, it's over."

Dolphins | Mike Wallace has another strong game

Mon, 02 Dec 2013 10:47:39 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace had seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 13 win over the New York Jets. Wallace has 12 grabs for 209 yards and two touchdowns over the last two weeks. "This is the time when you've got to be the best you can be," Wallace said. "It's December. I've had enough time to get adjusted. It's the time for me to be the player I know I am, no matter (what). Just block out everything and play football."

Fantasy Tip: Wallace should be in most starting lineups on a weekly basis. He'll likely draw Ike Taylor in the Week 14 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It finally appears as though Wallace and Ryan Tannehill are on the same page.

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 18:10:33 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace said Tuesday, Nov. 19, that he could be "a lot better," and that he has had disappointing chemistry with QB Ryan Tannehill so far.

Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman thinks Wallace is coming around. "I thought Mike had a tremendous ball game," Sherman said of Wallace's Week 11 performance against the San Diego Chargers.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace had four receptions for 15 yards in the Week 10 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday, Nov. 11. He was targeted seven times.

Wallace said he's still not completely accustomed to playing with Tannehill, even though they've worked together since May.

Patriots | Aqib Talib may sit out again

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 10:07:39 -0700

New England Patriots CB Aqib Talib (hip) practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday, Oct. 23, but he did not look close to 100 percent healthy while battling through his hip flexor strain. The ailment is the same issue that hampered him at the end of last season.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, things don't look good for Talib. He's been one of the league's best cover corners this year, too. Mike Wallace and the Miami Dolphins passing attack could thrive if Talib isn't on the field.

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 21:41:21 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace hauled in seven balls for 105 yards in the Week 5 game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he also had at least two dropped passes.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace's production has been up and down, but he remains a useful low-end WR2 or must-start WR3 in most fantasy formats.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace mostly working on right

Wed, 02 Oct 2013 20:14:46 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace has lined up on the right side 90 percent of the time so far this season, rather than moving around and seeing time in the slot.

Fantasy Tip: There was word that Wallace would be moved around, seeing time in the slot, but that has yet to materialize so far. He remains a decent low-end WR2 or flex fantasy play, but has the potential to do so much more.

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (groin), who was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons, appeared to be moving around fine after practice.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace was listed as a full practice participant Thursday, even though the team didn't officially practice. We expect Wallace to give it a shot and play on Sunday, but he may not be 100 percent. As long as Wallace is on the field, he should be in your starting lineup.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace suddenly is chipper

Tue, 17 Sep 2013 20:13:40 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace was grumpy after Week 1 when he managed just one reception, but after his big stat line in Week 2, he is suddenly bubbly. "I was the deep guy there (in Pittsburgh). But I always want to show people I can do more than deep routes. So this is fun for me," Wallace said. He has lined up in the slot, and is allowed to move around more.

Fantasy Tip: Week 1 was certainly an anomaly, so hopefully his fantasy owners didn't panic too much. He will have a lot better chance to rack up more catches, perhaps not for as big of an average yards per catch as we have seen in the past, but his targets will certainly be up.

Dolphins | Will not force ball to Mike Wallace

Thu, 12 Sep 2013 17:58:04 -0700

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said the team wants to throw the ball to WR Mike Wallace but will not force throws to him. "I'm going to play the quarterback position the way the coaches install the plays," Tannehill said. "I'm going to go through the reads just like they install it. We're going to try and get him the ball when he's in the play, but we're not going to force him the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Wallace did not get many targets in the team's Week 1 game but should get more throws going his way as the season goes on. He should be considered a starter in most weeks but likely will be more like a No. 2 receiver.

Sun, 08 Sep 2013 19:19:18 -0700

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace refused to speak to reporters after the Week 1 win against the Cleveland Browns after managing just one catch for 15 yards in his team debut. "Ask coach," Wallace said about how he was used. "It's not my game plan."

Fantasy Tip: Ut-oh. Trouble in paradise? Already? Wallace signed a huge contract in the offseason, but he did little in his team debut. Fantasy owners will still want to keep him active in Week 2 and hope for better results against the Indianapolis Colts.

Dolphins | Spreading field, even near goal

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 17:33:49 -0700

The Miami Dolphins have used an empty backfield setup with five players lined up as receivers, including WRs Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline, RB Lamar Miller, TE Dustin Keller and either WR Brandon Gibson or TE Charles Clay. The team even practiced with that grouping in goal line situations. "That surprised me and I'm on the team," Wallace said. "If we can do that, we'll keep catching teams off guard and get a lot of mismatches we want."
