The Dolphins were just starting training camp when Mike Wallace suffered a groin injury. Miami's new No. 1 wideout has been hampered by the injury ever since, but lately he appears to be operating at full speed.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald said Wallace is catching 60 and 75-yard bombs in practice, and he "seems to do it with little effort." Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill are starting to look like they're connecting better as well.
Fantasy impact: Salguero notes the Dolphins haven't seen a deep threat like Wallace on the roster for quite some time. He possesses the speed and ability to take to the top off defenses and provide a little excitement to Miami's offense for a change.
Wallace and Tannehill hooked up for three catches, 58 yards and a touchdown in their last preseason game against the Texans. Saturday night's matchup with the Buccaneers should provide a better look at their rapport. Wallace's stock is trending upwards.
