Wallace has been the king of hit-or-miss performance in 2013 and has fantasy owners feeling like they are standing at a roulette table when starting him. “The last three spins were red, so this one HAS to be black, right?” Week 5 was kind to Wallace’s owners as he received a league high 16 targets, which he turned into 105 yards. We would obviously like to see Wallace catch more than seven of the passes intended for him, but when you’re following two weeks of sub-25 yard games, we won’t complain too much. Mike Wallace is sure to be a headache to own this year as he will likely spice things up with a few four-catch, 37-yard games in between masterpieces.
