Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace had a mediocre fantasy day Thursday. The first-year Dolphin went for 82 receiving yards as the Dolphins snapped a four-game losing streak with a 22-20 overtime win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Wallace's 82 yards came on six receptions (eight targets), including one catch for 40 yards. He was held scoreless for the sixth straight game, as his lone score of the season came in Week 2.
Behind Wallace, wide receiver Brian Hartline continued his disappointing season with 39 receiving yards on three catches. It was Hartline's third game of the season (and second straight) under 40 yards, continuing a disappointing stretch.
Fantasy impact: Wallace had a fine game. If he could have reached the end zone, it would have been a very good one. After three games of 24 or fewer yards in his first four games, Wallace has 76 or more in three of his last four. He's not scoring touchdowns, but his decent yardage is going to keep him as a reasonable high-end WR3/flex play.
On the flip side of the coin, Hartline is increasingly proving to be unusable in fantasy. There was optimism after his season-opening 114-yard, one-touchdown performance, but Hartline isn't providing much value at all of late. He's fantasy-relevant only in desperate situations.
