The two touchdown catches from 16 and 7 yards was Wallace’s first multiple touchdown game as a Dolphin. Wallace now has 10 touchdowns on the season which he also accomplished in 2010. Wallace was targeted five times and caught all five passes for 58 yards.
The Dolphins host the Jets Week 17.
Wallace came down with an acrobatic 32-yard touchdown reception with five seconds remaining in the first half. He was targeted seven times and finished with five catches for 104 yards and a score in a 41-13 defeat. His last 100-yard came Dec. 15, 2013 against New England.
Wallace has 62 receptions for 804 yards and seven touchdowns on the year. He'll have two games to crack the 1,000-yard mark for the first time since 2011 with the Steelers, starting Week 16 vs. Minnesota and Week 17 vs. N.Y. Jets.
Wallace had 104 yards in the game, his first 100-yard performance of the season, and much of it came via the deep ball. Connecting on passes over the top has been something Tannehill and Wallace have struggled with, but 82 of Wallace's 104 yards came on two receptions, including a 32-yard touchdown that saw Wallace actually go up and fight for a score.
For a player with Wallace's speed, his time in Miami has been characterized by a surprising lack of big plays. He has yet to break a play of 60-plus yards since joining the Dolphins, something he did in three of his first four seasons. Though Sunday's effort was a good sign, it might be too little too late for Fantasy owners to trust Wallace. Heading into Week 16 against the Vikings, Wallace is a tough player to rely on.
Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Wide receiver
In Week 13 against the Jets Monday,
The Dolphins like the spread the ball around, and don't really have a traditional No. 1 receiver as a result. Entering Week 13, Wallace had played just 74.3 percent of the team's offense snaps, while Hartline led the way with 80.3 percent and Landry and Gibson came in at 58.7 and 41.4 percent. On any given week, any one of these four receivers can find the end zone or rack up decent yardage totals, but it's awfully hard to rely on any of them with the Fantasy playoffs looming.
