Mike Wallace injury update: WR questionable, expected to be available for fantasy owners

Scott Halleran

The Dolphins wide receiver is listed as questionable but is expected to play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace (hamstring) was limited in practice on Friday and is expected to suit up for the team's Week 11 game against the San Diego Chargers. Wallace was also limited in practice on Thursday but is fully expected to be on the field on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wallace will be a decent start against San Diego's weak secondary. Although he hasn't scored since Week 2, he has been more consistent in recent weeks and seems to have an improved rapport with quarterback Ryan Tannehill. His Week 2 performance with a touchdown was also his only 100-yard game so owners shouldn't be counting on WR1 production out of Wallace.

The improvement in chemistry with Tannehill is encouraging. But Wallace has made a living as a deep threat and the Dolphins' offensive line doesn't consistently give Tannehill enough time to let Wallace get down field and open things up.

Owners should go ahead and start the $60 million receiver on Sunday. The Chargers put up a lot of points and the Dolphins will likely have to pass more than usual to stay in the game. Wallace is a WR3 with upside.
