Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace will apparently move around in the formation this season as opposed to last year when he lined up on the right side 90 percent of the time, according to a Palm Beach Post report.
Insight: Wallace finished the season with 73 receptions for 930 yards five touchdowns, but more was expected of him. He may be a much better fantasy value in 2014 with expectations lowered.

Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace caught a touchdown for the third time in his last four games Sunday against New England.
Insight: Wallace also had his fourth 100-yard effort of the season. It followed a dud (two catches, 19 yards) in Week 14 against his former team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wallace has 867 yards and four TDs on 64 catches this year.

Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace put together consecutive double-digit fantasy point games for the first time all season with seven catches, 82 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: That followed Wallace grabbing five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown in Week 12. He'll remain an all-or-nothing WR3 going into a showdown with his former team the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 14.

Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace busted out of his season-long slump Sunday in a loss to Carolina.
Insight: He finished with 127 yards on five catches. The stat line is a little deceiving as most of his yardage came on just two catches: a 53-yard touchdown in the first quarter and then a 57-yard grab to start the second. Still, it's good to see that Ryan Tannehill is looking his way again. The ten targets Wallace received were his most since October 27th against New England.

Insight: He's officially listed as questionable on Miami's injury report. Wallace caught seven balls for 112 yards last year when he faced the Chargers. Of course, that was with Ben Roethlisberger throwing to him and not his current quarterback, Ryan Tannehill.

Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace will carry the questionable label into Week 11's matchup with San Diego. SOURCE: Barry Jackson, Miami Herald
Insight: It's due to a sore hamstring. The former Steeler has 40 catches for 495 yards this season. He hasn't scored since Week 2.
 
10/9/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan said cornerback Darrell Revis will likely get a lot of time covering Mike Wallace Monday against the Dolphins.
Insight: The Buccaneers have played a lot of zone this season while waiting for Revis to make it back to 100 percent after reconstructive knee surgery. According to TampaBay.com, Revis is getting to the point where he can press receivers more often and has the stamina to race step-for-step on go routes. "I'm getting back to my old self," Revis said. "I'm feeling very comfortable. The knee is feeling a lot better, the leg is feeling a lot better" Wallace leads the Dolphins with 480 yards in his first season with the team, but he should only be used as a low-end WR3 in 10-team leagues this week.
 
10/6/2013 6:43:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace saw 16 looks from Ryan Tannehill Sunday against the Ravens and came away with seven catches and 105 yards.
Insight: Wallace had 28 targets in the first four weeks combined, but the Dolphins made it a point to get their big-money receiver the ball Sunday. His targets will likely remain inconsistent..

Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace (groin) will play Sunday against the Falcons, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com.
Insight: A Dolphins source says that Wallace is "fine." After a quiet Week 1 against Joe Haden and the Browns, a frustrated Wallace complained about his role and ended up seeing 11 passes thrown his way in Week 2 against the Colts. He had nine catches, 115 yards and a touchdown.
 
9/20/2013 4:10:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace was added to the injury list yesterday with a groin problem, but was a limited participant in Friday's session.
Insight: After a quiet Week 1, Ryan Tannehill ended up going to Wallace nine times for 115 yards and a score in the game last Sunday. They will need both Wallace and Brian Hartline if they are to hang with the Falcons' offense in Week 3.
 
9/15/2013 5:55:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace doesn't have anything to complain about after getting 11 targets Sunday against the Colts.
Insight: Wallace was locked down by Browns CB Joe Haden in Week 1 and had one reception on five targets. Afterwards, he expressed frustration with his lack of activity. Ryan Tannehill ended up going to Wallace three times for 46 yards and a touchdown on the opening drive and nine times for 115 yards in the game Sunday.
 
Cold9/12/2013 12:58:00 PM
Description: Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill said he won't "force" the ball to Mike Wallace, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: "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." Wallace expressed frustration with getting just five targets and catching one pass in the opener against the Browns. He'll have an easier matchup in Week 2 against the Colts because he won't have to match up with Joe Haden.
 
Cold9/8/2013 6:39:00 PM
Description: Miami wideout Mike Wallace only made one catch on Sunday and he didn't seem too happy about it after the game.
Insight: "Ask coach. Not my game plan," he vented to reporters after the game. Obviously, Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill still have a long way to go in terms of chemistry. Brian Hartline led the Dolphins with 114 receiving yards in Sunday's win over Cleveland.
 
8/1/2013 7:57:00 PM
Description: Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace has sat out the last few days of training camp with a groin injury and is questionable for Sunday's Hall of Fame game, according to the Miami Herald.
Insight: Wallace hasn't practiced since he was surprisingly absent from Monday night's scrimmage. The receiver has been slow to develop chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, according to multiple reports, and being away from the field won't help that process.
 
7/24/2013 3:10:00 PM
Description: Multiple reports are saying that Dolphins receiver Mike Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill have yet to develop much chemistry.
Insight: Its way too early to worry. There are weeks of training camp and a few exhibition games to get it together before we would consider a change to either player's expected fantasy value.
 
3/12/2013 4:42:00 PM
Description: According to multiple reports, the Dolphins and receiver Mike Wallace have agreed to a five-year contract. ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that the deal is worth $65 million, and NFL Network's Jeff Darlington is saying that roughly $30 million is guaranteed.
Insight: Wallace had an up and down season for Pittsburgh in 2012 (836 yards and eight touchdowns) but he wasn't exactly used to his strengths by new OC Todd Haley. Haley ran a "dink-and-dunk" offense that was publicly criticized by both Wallace and QB Ben Roethlisberger. We expect Miami will use Wallace as a field-stretching weapon in 2013.
 
3/11/2013 9:12:00 PM
Description: Mike Wallace to the Dolphins is essentially "a done deal" according to the Palm Beach Post.
Insight: And just like that, the league's biggest free agent wide receiver is off the market. Wallace had an up and down season for Pittsburgh in 2012 (836 yards and eight touchdowns) but we're confident he'll bounce back next season in South Beach. Free agency doesn't officially begin until midnight so we probably won't know any details about Wallace's new contract until later in the week.

Insight: No surprise here. With Wallace already ruled out for Sunday's game against Cleveland, the team needed to make a move to clear up a roster spot.

Description: Pittsburgh wide receiver Mike Wallace will miss Week 17 because of hip and hamstring injuries. SOURCE: Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: With Pittsburgh out of the playoff hunt, there is little reason to start him in the meaningless Week 17 game. Wallace will be a free agent this offseason and may have played his last game with the Steelers.
 
12/24/2012 3:08:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh wide receiver Mike Wallace is questionable for Week 17 against Cleveland with a strained hip.
Insight: With the Steelers out of the playoff hunt, there is little reason to start him in the meaningless Week 17 game. The injury to Ben Roethlisberger hurt Wallace's season totals (64-836-8), but owners should recognize that fact and continue to respect Wallace's fantasy value.
