Summary

Baltimore made it clear that they wanted their receiving corps to be full of field-stretchers and intermediate sure-handed players. With Steve Smith likely be the latter at this point in his career, Wallace is certainly the former. Mostly a one-trick pony throughout his career, Wallace's skills didn't align with Teddy Bridgewater's in Minnesota. When he signed with Baltimore, he said he never even planned to return to Minnesota because he needs a quarterback who make things happen for him. It was quite the honest (if not slightly self-deprecating) evaluation as Wallace is more a receiver made by his passers as opposed to one who can make his passers better. His skills certainly align with those of Joe Flacco, though, so Wallace could see a return to his Pittsburgh form where he seemingly caught a handful of 50-plus yard passes every season. He isn't likely to be a player who gets 120 targets or 80 catches, but he'll make some splash plays and allow Flacco's other targets to work all over the field as he takes safeties on deep routes with him. If Smith can't return to his old form, the offense could suffer as Wallace has proven that he's not a true volume-based number one receiver. (May 17)

Ravens | Mike Wallace endearing himself (Wed Aug 17, 09:53 AM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace has caught fade routes in the end zone, tough catches on back-shoulder throws and has been a frequent target on underneath routes in camp. He has been a reliable target as far as hands go. 'I think he is going to be a really big hit for us,' QB Joe Flacco said. 'We all know he can run. But just the way he runs his routes and how good is he at the top of it and coming back to you, and how sure his hands have been. I don't know if I've seen him drop a pass.'

Our View: The Ravens were excited enough about Wallace to spend 4.5 million guaranteed dollars to land him. Breshad Perriman's continued knee issues could open the door for Wallace to be a boom/bust WR3/Flex and DFS option in a high volume pass offense. He's currently going in the 15th round or later.
