Through 6 games this season Mike Wallace has 30 catches for more than 350 yards and averaging 12 yards a catch. Those are good stats through 6 games but the stat that is more impressive is his 5 TDs. He has scored in all but one game this season. Wallace has been utilized well this season under Lazor's offense. Last year we saw him not able to run across the middle and he looked like he gave up on a lot of plays. This year he is playing more towards Tannehill's strengths, being able to get open on slants across the middle and on outside routes besides the go route. We are still waiting for that play where he outruns his defender and Tannehill hits him in perfect stride for a TD, however Wallace is being able to score by not just simply out running the whole team.
Wallace is tied 8th overall by WRs in TDs (this is a total number, some teams have not had a bye yet) and out of his 30 catches, 20 of them have gone for first downs. Being efficient in moving the chains is greatly needed in this offense. Wallace also impacts the game in other factors because many times he requires a safety over the top which helps the run game and also takes away pressure from other receivers leaving those like Landry to one on one match-ups. Now many will argue that Wallace is not worth the money we have given him but we have to at least acknowledge the fact that thus far he has played well, considering has already matched his total amount of TDs from last year and on pace to break his single season record of 10 TDs back in 2010.
