Wallace did not have a catch and was targeted just two times in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. He did have one carry for six yards. Wallace has almost disappeared in the Minnesota passing game the last four games as he's been targeted a total of just 14 times and has just two receptions over that Span. Meanwhile Stefon Diggs has been targeted 28 times over that same span. Wallace and Teddy Brigewater can't seem to connect on deep balls as there was another instance Sunday where Wallace was open but Bridgewater overthrew him.
Wallace caught just 1-of-2 targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 30-14 win at Oakland. It's been a rough season for Wallace, who has scored just one touchdown and doesn't have a 100-yard receiving game. Even worse, he's got a total of just three catches over the last three agmes. As was the case with QB Ryan Tannehill for two seasons in Miami, Wallace's deep speed doesn't quite mesh with the style of Vikings' signal caller Teddy Bridgewater, who doesn't take a lot of shots down the field. The veteran wideout will look to get on track at home against Green Bay in Week 11.
Wallace had just one reception for four yards despite being targeted a team-high six times in Sunday's win over St. Louis. It was the second week in a row where Wallace and Teddy Bridgewater couldn't connect despite some chances where Wallace was open. Wallace didn't have a catch in last week's win over Chicago. At least Wallace is getting the ball thrown to him, but so far the duo hasn't had much chemistry on deep balls.
Wallace didn't have a reception but was targeted four times in Sunday's win at Chicago. Teddy Bridgewater and Wallace failed to hook up on two deep passes that were likely touchdowns. While Wallace's lack of catches is disappointing, at least Wallace being open could point to future success as Minnesota's running game is opening up deep throw opportunities.
Vikings fading wideout Mike Wallace caught four passes off of five targets for 36 yards in a win Sunday over the Lions. Wallace has not been all that the Vikings and Fantasy owners had hoped for this season. He is averaging just over 11 yards per catch in 2015, with a season-long reception of 22 yards and a single touchdown. Wallace still leads the team in catches and receptions, but it's beginning to look like Minnesota is looking elsewhere for production in its downfield passing game.
