Mike Wallace Fantasy News

Change is coming for the Dolphins at the receiver position. Miami was ranked 17th in passing with 233.1 yards per game last season, and the immediate futures of several veterans are in question. Starting receiver Brian Hartline and slot Brandon Gibson could be salary-cap casualties due to their $5.95 million and $3.26 million salaries, respectively. The Dolphins must also decide what to do with No. 1 receiver Mike Wallace, who is due $9.9 million. Wallace was benched in the second half of Miami’s Week 17 loss to the New York Jets due to venting his frustration. It remains to be seen if both sides stay together or part ways. Either way, the Dolphins need to have a strong group of receivers around quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is entering his fourth season.

Mike Wallace unsure of future with Dolphins

Whether he was benched or benched himself on Sunday, Mike Wallace left a bitter taste with the Miami Dolphins heading into this offseason.

Fellow wideout Brandon Gibson told reporters that Wallace was frustrated with "not being involved as much as he wanted" in the offense. But will he be involved at all going forward?

Wallace told reporters Monday that he wants to return after signing a five-year, $60 million contract in 2013, but he isn't certain the team wants him around.

"I'm not the general manager or anything, or the head coach," Wallace said, per the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "I'm not sure."

Coach Joe Philbin -- who will be back -- was noncommittal about the future of his top pass-catcher, saying Monday: "Nothing has changed right now. I haven't spent one second thinking about 2015 yet."

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace enjoyed his best season in Miami under play-caller Bill Lazor, piling up 73 catches for 930 yards with five touchdowns. He went out of his way, though, to voice displeasure with the scheme after calling out Mike Sherman's attack the previous season.

After Dolphins TE Charles Clay scored with 2:49 left in first half, Mike Wallace came off the field and told HC Joe Philbin he no longer wanted to play in the game.

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace was seen on the sidelines by himself in the second half. This turn of events put a question mark on whether he'll be with the Dolphins in 2015. Wallace finished 2014 with 67 catches for 862 yards and 10 TDs.

Mike Wallace is a deep ball receiver on a team without a great deep ball quarterback.

He has been watching his own Dolphins team find life one week and then quickly allow it to disappear the next. He has also been watching a quarterback he left behind, Ben Roethlisberger, find a career renaissance with Todd Haley in Pittsburgh.

Needless to say, he was not happy after the Dolphins' 20-16 loss on Sunday. Wallace had five catches for 51 yards and a touchdown. He has yet to crack 100 yards this season.

"We can't keep doing this on offense," Wallace said, via ESPN.com. "We can't be up and down to be the team that we want to be. We have to be able to finish football games."

Fantasy Impact:

The team is just a week removed from a fantastic, 37-point performance against the Chargers and was coming off a three-game winning streak. The Lions were a tough opponent at home this week, ranking near the top in terms of not allowing fantasy production to several positions. But as the story pointed out, the frustration will linger as long as the Dolphins have talented players that aren't being used correctly, or to their full potential.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace frustrated with usage

Despite having five touchdown catches already, Dolphins WR Mike Wallace hasn't cracked 100 yards yet this season and has had fewer than 60 yards in three of his last four games, which prompted him to say this on Tuesday, on the heels of another dismal offensive performance against Jacksonville:

"We didn't do nothing," Wallace told reporters. "Our offense was (expletive). We've got to do better."

According to The Miami Herald, Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill has hit on just seven passes of 20 yards or more this season. He's attempted more than 20.

"That's what I do; I'm built for that," Wallace said, continuing to show some visible signs of frustration.

Fantasy Impact:

This is a change of tone from the preseason, when Wallace spoke in glowing terms about Bill Lazor's offense. He and Ryan Tannehill continue to struggle to hook up on deep passes.
