Fantasy football sit/start advice, Week 12: Mike Wallace

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace had a big game in Week 12, but should you start him against the New York Jets?

Chris Trotman

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace had a huge game in Week 12. He caught five passes for 127 yards and a touchdown against the Carolina Panthers, though the Dolphins did lose the game. It was Wallace's best game of the season, which isn't saying much as he's struggled big time.

Wallace has been a frequent target of Ryan Tannehill, but he's barely caught half the passes thrown his way. He's caught 49 passes of the 96 thrown his way, which isn't very good. Against the Panthers, he was targeted 11 times. In other words, it's been a down season for the highly-paid wide receiver.

Fantasy Sit/Start: Wallace has 49 receptions for 661 yards and just two touchdowns on the season. He's been abysmal for fantasy owners for the most part, with just three games of 100-plus yards receiving, and six with 41 yards or less. Wallace's big game against the Panthers is encouraging, but nothing more. The Dolphins take on the struggling New York Jets on Sunday, but it is difficult to recommend starting him. As a deep WR3 play, Wallace is worth the start for his boom potential, but that's all.
