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 | Coach impressed with Mike Wallace (Wed Jun 29, 04:58 PM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace showed he is a complete receiver during offseason workouts and is expected to be a big part of the offense in 2016, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Our View: Wallace was a disappointment in his one year with the Vikings. He hasn't been a top-5 fantasy WR since he was with the Steelers in 2010 and 2011, and we're not expecting him to regain his form now that he's back in the AFC North. The Ravens are looking for someone to stretch the field, but Wallace may not be as fast as he used to be. Fantasy owners should consider him a WR6 who could have some splash plays here or there.

Ravens | Mike Wallace not as fast (Mon Jun 27, 10:50 AM) - Baltimore Ravens WR Mike Wallace said he isn't as fast as he was as the slot receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers four years ago, but he thinks he can still get it done. 'I think I've gotten better, even though (the) numbers don't say so,' Wallace said. 'I think I'll get better this year, and I'll show some people I have a lot up my sleeve.'

Our View: Wallace's game is all about speed to get by defenders on "go" routes. If he's not as fast, then he may not be as effective. Of course, he hasn't been a fantasy factor for a few years. Mostly, Wallace has disappointed since he left the Steelers. He was a top-10 fantasy WR with the Steelers, since then his highest ranking is 18th in 2014 when he was with the Dolphins. This season, we can only forecast Wallace as a WR6 for fantasy owners.
