|Vikings | Mike Wallace finds end zone|
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 19:41:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) had his best game, by far, as a member of the Vikings. He is a solid WR3/4 or flex play in most fantasy formats for his big-play potential.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace still optimistic|
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 11:54:42 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace believes the deep plays are coming despite Minnesota's slow start in the passing game. "We still have a lot [of playbook]; we've got 73% more," Wallace said. "We still have a ways to go. We still have a lot of things in the fold. Hopefully, we can get to it." Wallace said another reason for upcoming deep passes is that RB Adrian Peterson has been playing well, which will hopefully open up the field more for Wallace and the Vikings wide receivers.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is off to an extremely slow start this year, and a breakout shouldn't be expected in Week 4 against one of the better pass defenses in the Denver Broncos. It's best to wait at least one more week before starting Wallace, or at least expecting a big game out of him.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace could be bottled up|
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 19:31:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) relies on making big plays to produce points, and he is a risky option at FantasyScore against such a tough secondary.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace solid in team debut|
Mon, 14 Sep 2015 23:04:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was one of the bright spots in an otherwise dismal night for those in purple and white. He might be amped up for his Week 2 matchup, as he faces his original team, the Pittsburgh Steelers. FantasyScore players might want to take a chance on him at a mid-level price.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace wants to prove himself again|
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:12:39 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace said he definitely has something to prove this year on his new team. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said the only thing that matters for Wallace is how he performs when he's on the field, not what he says off it. "If he makes plays, [if] he does the things we want him to do, [if] he works hard in practice, [if] he sets an example in his actions in terms of the way he approaches preparation, then that's leadership," Turner said. "What guys say is very meaningless to me. It's obviously what they do."
Fantasy Tip: Wallace was a distraction for the Miami Dolphins last year, so he does need to prove that he won't cause the same distractions for the Vikings this year. He is currently the fourth-highest paid wide receiver in the league, although the statistics aren't there to back that up. Wallace is due for a show-me season, but he should be viewed as a WR3 to be on the safe side.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace looking to do more|
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:51:02 -0700
Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace was added for his speed and experience, but he comes to training camp looking to do more than that. "I've got to take some things from Miami that I don't think I did as well and just try to bring it here and be a better person and a better player. Just lead more," Wallace said Monday, July 27.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace has struggled over the past two seasons, posting a total of 21 receptions for 20-plus yards despite his tremendous speed. He is worth a look as a WR2/3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace impresses at camp|
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:50:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: There will likely be an adjustment period for Wallace in his first year in Minnesota, but there should be opportunities for him to stretch the field with defenses focusing on slowing down Adrian Peterson. He should make a serviceable WR3.

|Vikings | Mike Wallace has struggled vs. NFC|
Thu, 09 Jul 2015 14:29:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Games against NFC opponents represent 25% of Wallace's games played over his career, but it's still something to consider since he'll be playing against 12 NFC teams in 2015. It will also be Wallace's first season with a new team and a new quarterback, so there is some risk involved. Drafting him as a WR3 would be reasonable.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson working out|
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 10:29:29 -0700
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.
