Wallace hauled in one of three targets for seven yards Sunday in the Ravens' win over the Browns. With two catches for 15 yards through the first two games, Wallace has been on the back burner in the offensive gameplan while the Ravens have utilized a short passing game and a heavy ground attack. A London matchup against Jacksonville awaits Wallace in Week 3, but the limited target volume through the first two weeks will likely leave owners looking for alternatives.
Wallace hauled in his lone target for an eight-yard reception in Sunday's win over the Bengals. No Baltimore receiver saw more than four targets as the Ravens took the pressure off Joe Flacco by leaning on the ground game. As a result, it was a disappointing day for most of the Ravens pass-catchers aside from Jeremy Maclin, who caught a 48-yard touchdown. Wallace seeing just one target was still surprising, even with Baltimore's run-heavy game plan. He'll have an opportunity to bounce back in Week 2 against the Browns, but if Baltimore continues to be heavily skewed toward the run, it could be an issue for those invested in the Ravens passing game.
Wallace caught one pass for seven yards on four targets in Saturday's preseason game against the Bills. Ryan Mallett threw to Wallace on three of Baltimore's first five snaps, with the veteran wideout later drawing a deep target from No. 3 quarterback Josh Woodrum. Likely done for the preseason, Wallace caught three of six targets for 40 yards in two games as the Baltimore offense struggled to move the ball without Joe Flacco (back). The team expects its starting quarterback to be ready for Week 1 in Cincinnati.
Wallace is expected to make his preseason debut Thursday against the Dolphins, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. After getting a veteran's week off for Baltimore's preseason opener, Wallace will get in on the action against his former team Thursday. However, with it being only the second week of the preseason, it's unlikely that Wallace and the rest of the Ravens' first-team offense sees significant snaps. Look for Wallace to play a handful of series against the Dolphins with Ryan Mallett as his quarterback, making him a risky option in preseason daily fantasy formats.
Wallace isn't expected to play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Redskins, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. The Ravens aren't allowing any of their top three wideouts to take the field -- Wallace, Breshad Perriman (hamstring) and Jeremy Maclin -- providing Michael Campanaro, Chris Moore and Chris Matthews with an opportunity to impress the coaching staff. Now 31 years old, Wallace is a good bet to see action in just 1-2 outings before the regular season.
