John Congemi (MiamiDolphins.com) writes… “Sixteen different players had a reception against Tampa Bay and some of these players are starting to separate from the pack. Veteran slot wideout Brandon Gibson looks to be healthy and gives this offense a vertical threat in the middle of the field. The same holds true for rookie Jarvis Landry. This combination inside will give opposing defense matchup problems because the can create with their route running and always give the quarterback a window to deliver the football.” (Source: MiamiDolphins.com
Fantasy Impact: The first team offense managed to score three points but was harassed by the Bucs defensive line all night. Mike Wallace’s night consisted of a well set up bubble screen that was dropped, and a takeoff route that was just overthrown. In all fairness to him and Brian Hartline, it was the first game they suited up for this year and will improve with live reps. There are going to be games where the defense does not allow the deep ball to beat them, fortunately for the Phins they now have the players underneath to really eat up the soft coverage. It’s going to be beneficial to Wallace’s FF value that many of his teammates are making plays, this will force defenses to stay honest or suffer the consequences.

Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald is reporting that QB Ryan Tannehill and WR MIke Wallace are struggling with their "deep ball chemistry." (Source: Miami Herald
Fantasy Impact: In 2013, Ryan Tannehill only connected on 32.8% of passes that traveled 20+ yards down the field, according to PFF. Tannehill and Wallace's lack of chemistry is concerning for Wallace, who made a living on the deep ball in his four years with Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh. He's currently being drafted near the end of the 6th round.

In an interview with Neil Reynolds of www.britviewnfl.com, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace said that he would like to return kicks for his team. He hinted that he "might get back there for kickoff returns.” (Source: Brit View NFL
Fantasy Impact: This isn't totally out of the realm of possibility since Wallace is a dynamic play-maker and has experience returning kicks from his days with the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, the Dolphins may not want to take on the injury risk that would accompany the additional touches Wallace would receive as a returner.

The Miami Dolphins made a big splash last year when they signed Mike Wallace away from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately he was wildly inconsistent last year. Can the speedster turn things around this year and be a more consistent fantasy threat? I believe he can..
