Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline both shine for Dolphins, fantasy owners

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins receivers both had big games Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

In their first season as teammates, Miami Dolphins wide receivers Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace had yet to both have big games at the same time entering Sunday. The pair had five games between them with double-digit fantasy points on the season, but those games hadn't overlapped. Sunday, though, they both got on the board, leading the Dolphins to a 23-3 victory over the New York Jets.

Hartline led the way with nine receptions for 127 yards and a touchdown, his third touchdown of the year. It was Hartline's season high in yards and only his second 100-yard game of the season. Wallace, meanwhile, scored for the second straight game, gaining 82 yards on seven receptions. Sunday's game brings Hartline to 804 yards on the season and Wallace to 743.

Fantasy impact: The two receivers are very different as far as trustworthiness goes. Wallace has 10 or more fantasy points four times, but has scored one or two points four times as well. Hartline, meanwhile, has only topped 10 three times, but hasn't scored less than three in any game.

Basically, fantasy owners who are looking for a lottery ticket would be safer to use Wallace, while those who just need a reliable few points would rather go with Hartline. Neither, though, has done enough this season to be considered a sure starter; they're low-end flexes at best.
