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.

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.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace's father: Son may stay

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 23:10:16 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace will remain with the team, according to what his father believes. "Right now, he's been talking to them," Burnell Wallace said. "He thinks he's going to stay there. He doesn't have a problem staying. (But) they really don't know. I really can't give you a definitive answer."

Fantasy Tip: Wallace projects as a low WR1 or high WR2 in most fantasy leagues, but if he ends up out of Miami things could change based on where he goes to play.

Dolphins | Ryan Tannehill wants Mike Wallace back

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 11:03:39 -0800

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill said he cleared the air with WR Mike Wallace, and the two have no problem. Tannehill said he wants Wallace to return, and the team will consider Tannehill's input when they make their decision on Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is being difficult with Miami, as he's said he won't restructure his current contract. The Dolphins could save quite a bit of cash if they decide to cut Wallace outright. It may be in Miami's best interests to retain Wallace, however, if at least for the sake of Tannehill's future after they already cut Brandon Gibson and Brian Hartline. Wallace had a disappointing 2014 season, but he still managed 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 touchdowns. A move away from Miami probably wouldn't hurt his fantasy value. Stay tuned.

Dolphins | Mike Wallace won't restructure

Fri, 27 Feb 2015 07:42:09 -0800

Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace is unwilling to restructure his contract and would rather test free agency, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace is unlikely to return to Miami, and a quarterback that can utilize him in deep routes would do wonders for his fantasy value. Wallace is a great WR3 with WR2 potential.

Dolphins | Miami shopping Mike Wallace

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 18:59:37 -0800

The Miami Dolphins do not plan to cut WR Mike Wallace just yet. They are exploring the trade route not just on Wallace's play, but also his fit in the locker room. He removed himself from the regular season finale, and had a shouting match with head coach Joe Philbin afterwards. Wallace is due $9.85 million in 2015, part of a five-year, $60 million deal that runs through 2017.

Fantasy Tip: He had trouble jelling with Ryan Tannehill, and it'll be tough to get much value in a trade. His time appears to be over in Miami, and if he lands on a team that can utilize him better in deep routes, he could be a low-end WR2 on draft day.
