Cleveland Browns general manager Michael Lombardi once labeled Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace the fastest player he has ever seen on tape.

No deep threat takes the top off a defense quite like Wallace.

The criticism on Wallace is that he's not a complete receiver, doesn't run a full route tree and is unreliable as a go-to target. That hasn't proven to be the case with the Dolphins.

"It's not, 'If I can't get the deep ball, I can't do anything else,' " cornerback Brent Grimes told The Miami Herald. "He has good hands, can run other routes. He's not a one-trick pony."

Fantasy Impact: 

Wallace's career average of 17.2 yards per reception ranks fourth among active receivers. Since entering the NFL four years ago, Wallace leads the league with 27 receptions of 40-plus yards. We see going from QB Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh to QB Ryan Tannehill in Miami as a drop off, so Wallace comes in at 22 among our WRs, which is low-end WR2, high-end WR3 range.
