WR Mike Wallace - Baltimore Ravens
|6-1, 199||Born: 8-1-1986||College: Ole Miss||Drafted: Round 3|
Week 13: vs Miami Dolphins
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Joe Flacco was limited to 25/36 for 234 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with two sacks taken for -15 yards vs. Cincinnati last weekend - Mike Wallace (four targets for 3/57/0 receiving) led the team in receiving while Dennis Pitta (five for 3/34/0), Kenneth Dixon (four for 4/31/0) and Kamar Aiken (two for 2/30/0) were the other receivers over 30 yards receiving last weekend. Breshad Perriman (three for 1/14/1) was the lucky recipient of the lone passing score. Flacco has thrown for more than one TD in exactly two games this season, and has 11 passing scores thrown vs. 10 interceptions tossed entering Week 13 - not exactly an explosive passing attack here, friends. The Dolphins' pass defense was hit for 29/46 yielding 282 net yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with two sacks of Colin Kaepernick for -14 yards during the 31-24 win over San Francisco. Two games ago Miami allowed just 17/31 for 125 net yards, zero TDs or interceptions with one sack for -9 yards of rookie Jared Goff (in his first regular-season NFL start). From Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Miami has averaged 21.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (17th in the NFL); and 19.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-least); with 9.7 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (ninth-most). This is a so-so pass defense entering Week 13, friends (Miami is currently ninth in the NFL averaging 229.7 net passin yards given out per game, with 17 passing scores given out over 11 games). This looks like a neutral matchup between two middlin' units.
