Wallace, who was sent to the Vikings this off-season in exchange for a fifth-round pick is expected to pencil in as the top WR for Minnesota in 2015. "I like Mike Wallace, he's got some fire and he comes up to me all of the time and says, 'You can't stop me today,' and stuff like that," Zimmer said after Thursday's final OTA practice. "Hey, I like those guys that are competitors. He works extremely hard. I think he's developing a good relationship with everybody on the football team and not just Teddy (Bridgewater)."Ě (Source: Vikings.com
Fantasy Impact: He is an intriguing player who has serious speed. Wallace tied a career high in touchdown catches (10) in 2014 along with 67 catches and 862 yards. He has missed just one start due to injury in six seasons. The 28-year-old is an upgrade over veteran Greg Jennings, who led the Vikings with 742 yards last season. Wallace is a nice value pickup in the sixth round just behind the likes of Keenan Allen, Jeremy Maclin and Jarvis Landry.
