Summary

After two seasons in Miami, Mike Wallace now joins his third NFL team in the Vikings. Wallace continues to be one of the fastest WR in the game but what he lacks is consistency and being a team player. Wallace seemed to be somewhat of a bust in his two year Dolphins stint but when you look at the numbers on paper he actually his final year in Pittsburgh. The Vikings can really use Wallace's speed and he should be able to help a young offensive group grow and make plays together as a team by his ability to stretch the field. The Vikings are an offense in transition and one that likes more a balanced approach so predicting a statline of 70/1000/8 for Wallace would just be out of the question. What he can bring is big play ability for Bridgewater down the field and defenses to have to play the pass and not stack the box against Peterson. (May 16)

Vikings | Mike Wallace wants to prove himself again (Tue Jul 28, 07:12 PM) - Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace said he definitely has something to prove this year on his new team. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner said the only thing that matters for Wallace is how he performs when he's on the field, not what he says off it. 'If he makes plays, [if] he does the things we want him to do, [if] he works hard in practice, [if] he sets an example in his actions in terms of the way he approaches preparation, then that's leadership,' Turner said. 'What guys say is very meaningless to me. It's obviously what they do.'

Our View: Another day, and another positive report about Mike Wallace coming out of Minnesota. Wallace just didn't mesh with Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill, but it seems like he and Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater are getting along famously. We'll see if that chemistry translates into on-field production.

Vikings | Mike Wallace looking to do more (Mon Jul 27, 10:51 PM) - Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace was added for his speed and experience, but he comes to training camp looking to do more than that. 'I've got to take some things from Miami that I don't think I did as well and just try to bring it here and be a better person and a better player. Just lead more,' Wallace said Monday, July 27.

Our View: It seems like Wallace "gets it" after disappointing for years with the Dolphins. Reports out of Minnesota have all been positive about Wallace, and he seems to be building a strong connection with young quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. We'll see if that chemistry can translate into production during the regular season.

Vikings | Mike Wallace impresses at camp (Sun Jul 26, 08:50 PM) - Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace was impressive during training camp Sunday, July 26.

Our View: Wallace never played up to his potential (or his paycheck) during his time with the Dolphins. All reports this offseason seem to indicate that he and second-year QB Teddy Bridgewater are putting on a helluva show. If the connection comes through for fantasy owners, Wallace could outperform his current ADP of WR35 (7.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.
