Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace (hamstring) practiced on Friday and will start in the team's Week 12 game against the Carolina Panthers. Wallace was limited in practice on Thursday but is fully expected to play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: The $60 million receiver has been somewhat of a disappointment to fantasy owners as well as the Dolphins. Although he has played in every game this season, he has only topped the 100-yard receiving mark twice and his only touchdown on the year came in Week 2. Wallace is a talented deep-threat receiver but the Dolphin's offensive line hasn't consistently given quarterback Ryan Tannehill enough time to allow the deep routes to develop. His 12.1 yards per catch this season is well below his 16.4 career average.
The Panthers present an extremely difficult match up against the pass. Their secondary allows the second fewest points to wide receivers in PPR leagues. Wallace and Tannehill have struggled to develop the chemistry that translates to outstanding fantasy production. Wallace is still a decent PPR option but owners shouldn't have high expectations in Week 12. Wallace is a weaker WR3 option.
