Wake recorded a sack and two tackles Sunday against the Rams. Wake has been on a tear, as he's notched 6.5 sacks over his last five games. After starting the season with just a single sack over the first five contests of 2016, he's returned to form as one of the elite pass rushers in the NFL.
Wake recorded two sacks and three tackles Sunday against the Chargers. After posting just one sack through his first five games of the year, he's now up to seven on the season. He's been on amazing hot streak, as he's recorded at least 1.5 sacks in each of his last three contests. He definitely has a chance to reach the 15 sacks he generated in 2012, which was the most he's had in any season of his eight-year career. He'll continue to be a outstanding IDP option at defensive end, especially with the Dolphins' defense starting to emerge.
Wake had two sacks and four tackles in the Dolphins 27-23 win over the Jets Sunday. Wake has responded to the team cutting down his snap count as he now has four sacks in his last three games. He's not expected to chase down running backs but the team will use him in obvious passing situations. Another double digit sack season is not out of the question for Wake.
Wake had 1.5 sacks in the Dolphins Week 7 win over Buffalo. The Dolphins have used Wake sparingly this season which was to be expected coming off of his Achilles tendon surgery. He can still be a valuable pass rusher, especially when the opposition is trailing and forced to throw the ball.
The Dolphins want to give Wake more defensive snaps, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins came into the season wanting to play Wake about 35 snaps a game but outside of the game versus Cleveland he hasn't approached that amount. This may not be the team's fault however as they have rarely had a lead which would force the opposing team into obvious passing situations which is when Wake would be on the field. Perhaps this will change Sunday versus the Titans.
