Head to Head: Two Mike Wallace 2013 Fantasy Predictions

From Adam Rainbolt (@adamrainbolt)

With Mike Wallace appearing to be headed to Miami, let’s take a look at his fantasy prospects in 2013.

Wallace’s best seasons came in 2010 (60 catches, 1,257 yards and 10 touchdowns, #5 WR) and 2011 (72 catches, 1,193 yards and 8 touchdowns, #9 WR).

2012 was a different story, (64 catches, only 836 yards and 8 touchdowns, #25 WR), as he was plagued by groin, knee and hip injuries throughout the season.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected well with Brian Hartline (74, 1,083 and 1 touchdown), while Davone Bess was the only other wideout of note on the Fins in 2012 with 61 catches, 778 yards and a touchdown.

Don’t expect top flight numbers from Wallace, but more likely production just under that of Brandon Marshall during his South Florida days.

Adam’s Prediction (3/11/2013): 75 catches, 950 yards and 7 TD making him a top 20 wide receiver.

From Regan Yant (@reganfp);

Wallace to Miami ranks a “meh” on my fantasy scale in regards to his fantasy prospects.  While I’m not a big fan of his game; run fast and hopefully catch, I think he helps the guys on the field with him more.  I’m on the Ryan Tannehill bandwagon.  I have loved him since his Texas A & M days.  I think he has the smarts, the cockiness and the rocket arm to be an elite QB one day.  In my initial QB rankings he is just outside of the top 10.  With the addition of a vertical threat such as Wallace i’m even more excited for Tannehill’s prospects. 

I also think Brian Hartline and the TE spot (Jared Cook?) will benefit from a fantasy standpoint.  Finally, his addition bodes very well for whomever is running the ball for the Dolphins next year, be it Lamar Miller or a Free Agent they may bring in.  Sorry Daniel Thomas fans, he is garbage, dump him!

Regan’s Prediction (3/11/2013): 68 catches, 1074 yards and 8 TDs, making him a slightly higher scorer than Adam’s prediction, but low for what I think his ADP is going to be come draft time
