Mike Wallace gives Dolphins, fantasy owners another big game

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins wide receiver had his third big performance in his last four games Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

What looked like a lost season for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace only a month ago has started looking like a success in recent weeks. His moderate hot streak continued Sunday in the Dolphins' 24-20 win over the New England Patriots.

Wallace had 105 yards and a touchdown Sunday, his second 100-yard game and third touchdown in his last four. He also chipped in 13 rushing yards. His touchdown came on a 39-yard connection with quarterback Ryan Tannehill with 32 seconds left in the second quarter.

Fantasy impact: Wallace averaged only 5.6 fantasy points through his first 10 games this season, with only one touchdown in that time. His production has skyrocketed lately, though, with 16.7 fantasy points per game in his last four, and that includes a two-catch, 19-yard performance a week ago. Wallace has had at least 14 fantasy points in three of his last four.

For a while, it looked like he and Brian Hartline -- and maybe even Rishard Matthews and/or the since-injured Brandon Gibson -- would be battling each other for middling fantasy points, but Wallace has clearly set himself well ahead of Matthews and Gibson, and at this point he has to be seen as a notch or two above Hartline, even if Hartline has had more fantasy points on the season as a whole.
