Vikings | Mike Wallace a likely cut

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 08:43:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace is likely to be cut in the offseason as he carries an $11.5 million salary for 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace had a futile 39-473-2 line last season and didn't fit the offense very well. He still has the potential to land in a prime spot and be a solid WR4 flyer.

Vikings | Minnesota WRs struggle in victory

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:57:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WRs Mike Wallace, Jarius Wright, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs each struggled in the Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers. Wallace had one grab for 22 yards, while Wright had 21 yards on two receptions. Thielen posted 16 yards on his only target, and Diggs had an eight-yard grab on two receptions.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings receivers each did very little in a victory. The best bet for FantasyScore players is Diggs heading into next Sunday's playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, but none of the receivers have done very much lately and Seattle's defense is stout. It might be best to target receivers in the other playoff games.

Vikings | Mike Wallace should be on the field

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 14:41:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 16, and is listed as probable for the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is coming off a solid Week 4 performance when he caught eight passes for 83 yards and one touchdown. He is facing a Chiefs defense that allows the most fantasy points to wide receivers this season, so owners should consider adding him to their lineups.

Vikings | Mike Wallace, Charles Johnson limited

Thu, 15 Oct 2015 15:20:49 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WRs Mike Wallace (knee) and Charles Johnson (ribs) were limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) didn't practice yesterday, so this is a good sign that he will be able to take the field in Week 6. He has a tremendous matchup against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that has given up 11 touchdowns to wide receivers in 2015. Johnson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) hasn't done much this year and has missed some time recently. If he does play, he could be rusty and/or limited. He's a risky play on FantasyScore despite a good matchup.

Vikings | Mike Wallace does not practice

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 15:20:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) said he expected to play against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6, so owners should monitor his practice participation. Wallace would be a solid starting option against the Chiefs since they struggle against opposing receivers.

Vikings | Mike Wallace expects to play

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 13:33:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace (knee) said he injured his knee in Week 4 but should be able to play in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is coming off a solid Week 4 performance where he caught eight passes for 83 and one touchdown. He could be a solid starting option if active because the Chiefs allow the most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Vikings | Mike Wallace's status uncertain

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 13:02:01 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 12, because of an undisclosed reason. Head coach Mike Zimmer is not sure if Wallace will be able to play in the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye out on the situation during the week to see if Wallace will be able to practice at some point. He has posted decent numbers in the first four games of the season, but owners may want to have backup plans ready if he is not able to play.

Vikings | Mike Wallace doesn't practice

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 11:24:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, Oct. 6.

Fantasy Tip: The reason for Wallace's absence is unclear, but the Vikings do have a bye this week. If Wallace is dealing with an injury, he'll have plenty of time to recover.

Vikings | Mike Wallace finds end zone

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 19:41:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace pulled down eight balls for 83 yards and a touchdown in the Week 4 game against the Denver Broncos. He was targeted 10 times.

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.
