Mike Wallace still not accustomed to Ryan Tannehill

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace remains frustrated and had another conversation with offensive coordinator Mike Sherman about it in recent days.

“We’ve got to be able to throw the ball deep,” said Wallace, whose seven drops are third most in the league. “We have to be able to back people up and not have people sitting us. We have to balance it out.”

Sherman said he has tried to throw deep, but “for whatever reason, something has happened here or there.”

Even after working together since May, Wallace said Tuesday he’s still not completely accustomed to playing with Tannehill. “He’s more of a timing quarterback,” Wallace said. His former QB in Pittsburgh, Ben Roethlisberger, “is a guy who extends plays and makes things happen.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Wallace has been a disappointment, but he has seen 10+ targets in the last three games. He's a high-risk WR2/WR3 this week against the Bengals.
