Two Dolphins people dispute a CBS report that Joe Philbin will have a shorter leash on Ryan Tannehill and might play Matt Moore. But the Dolphins feel strongly that Tannehill must improve his chemistry with Mike Wallace. One Dolphins official said Tannehill can throw a ball anticipating where Brian Hartline will be, but cannot consistently with Wallace.

Mike Wallace wants to work on the deep ball
Sunday, January 26, 2014, 11:33am

Miami Herald - [Full Article]

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace says he and QB Ryan Tannehill have to get their deep ball chemistry going this offseason.

"We have to,” Wallace said. “Definitely have got to get the deep ball going. That’s the difference between winning and losing a couple games. I should have had 15 or 20 more touchdowns. And that’s being modest. If you press me, you have no shot to cover me. Once I get you to stop your feet, it’s over.”

But if the deep ball isn’t thrown accurately, or caught, it’s moot.

Consider: Of balls in the air at least 20 yards, Tannehill threw 36 such passes to Wallace, and only six were completed --- the worst percentage of 22 deep-threat receivers ranked by PFF. Of those 36, only eight were deemed catchable and Wallace dropped two.

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace says he was just being "modest" saying that he should have had "15 or 20 more touchdowns" but he only scored five TDs in 2013 and four of those came in the final six weeks, so there were signs of improvement. The deep ball was a rarity, however, and it sounds like Wallace is eager to develop chemistry with Tannehill.

Fantasy Impact:

Mike Wallace is active, and the matchup is good, but he has been an inconsistent fantasy option all season long. With center Mike Pouncey inactive, the Dolphins offense could be in full-on trainwreck mode today.

Dolphins WR Mike Wallace, listed as questionable with a hamstring, expects to play Sunday barring an unexpected setback.

Fantasy Impact:

The Dolphins are a late afternoon game so have a backup plan just in case but it looks like he'll give it a go.

Mike Wallace still not accustomed to Ryan Tannehill
Wednesday, October 30, 2013, 10:56am

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.

Asked if the Dolphins need to throw deep more to WR Mike Wallace, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said that’s “easy to say [but] coverage dictates a lot of that. We’re getting more two safety-looks to take away deeper looks. We called 12 deep balls [Monday]. They didn’t go there because coverage didn’t allow it to go there. You can’t force things when they’re not there.”

Fantasy Impact:

Wallace has been a disappointment thus far in Miami. Other than a nice 9-115-1 outing in Week 2 against the Colts, he's averaging 2-20 in his other three games. At best, he's a WR3 at this point.

Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill feels no need to necessarily feed WR Mike Wallace going forward.

"I’m going to play the quarterback position the way the coaches install the plays," Tannehill said. "I’m going to go through the reads just like they install it. We’re going to try and get him the ball when he’s in the play, but we’re not going to force him the ball."

Fantasy Impact:

The Colts don't have a corner like Joe Haden, so Wallace should be better in Week 2. Just don't expect him to explode in production given Tannehill's comments and their relative lack of chemistry in the preseason.
