Mike Wallace

Week 3 – Flex – Start or Sit – Peyton Hillis, Mark Ingram, or Michael Crabtree?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start or sit Peyton Hillis in week 3 @ New Orlenas? This is for my flex and my other options are Mark Ingram vs. KC or Michael Crabtree @ MIN.

Answer:

Peyton Hillis has been a disappointment for fantasy owner who likely spent a mid-round pick on him when a quality WR could have been taken such as Mike Wallace or Stevie Johnson.

The good news for Peyton Hillis this week is the Saints defense. They’ve given up the 2nd most fantasy points to running backs through two games this season. Jamaal Charles also tweaked his inured knee last week against the Bills. Although Charles should play this week (he’s listed as probable), the injury gives the Chiefs staff more reasons to decrease his workload while giving Hillis more carries.

Hillis saw 7 carries in week 1 and 11 carries last week. Hills may see as many as 15 carries this week. Although Hillis in week 1 was a bust against the Falcons, Hillis had a much better game in week 2 against the Bills picking up 66 yards on 11 carries and hauling in 3 receptions for 25 yards. A 6.0 YPC and 12.5 YPR average make fantasy owners happy, but he just needs to get more touches and he should have that opportunity against the Saints this week.

I don’t trust Ingram in my starting lineup since his fantasy numbers are always contingent on whether he gets any goalline opportunities for the Saints. Without the goalline opportunities, he won’t put up any big numbers and his statline may come in at 15 carries for 60 yards on a good day. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles also put a big dent in his touches.

Michael Crabtree …

Week 3 – WR – Start or Sit – Marques Colston or Lance Moore?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 23rd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

Should I start Lance Moore or Marques Colston in week 3.  My other active WR’s are A.J. Green, Mike Wallace, and at Flex Stevie Johnson in a PPR league.

Answer:

Marques Colston is listed as questionable with a foot injury, so you may want to put Lance Moore in the starting lineup. If you find out right before kickoff that Colston is going to be playing, then I would insert him in your lineup as he’s a more consistent producer compared to Moore.

Your other wide receivers and flex should do plenty of damage this week. A.J. Green @ WAS, Mike Wallace @ OAK, and Stevie Johnson @ CLE are all quality starts this week due to their favorable matchups and should put up big numbers this week.

Good luck!…

Week 3 – WR – Mike Wallace of Dwayne Bowe?

Posted by in NFL Week 3 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 22nd, 2012 | Comment »

Question:

I can’t figure out if I should Mike Wallace or Dwayne Howe at WR2. Help!!

Answer:

You shouldn’t go wrong with either player. I like Mike Wallace’s matchup in Oakland, especially since the Raiders top two corners are injured.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:  Whoever plays cornerback for the Raiders on Sunday, they’re going to have their hands full with Pittsburgh receiver Mike Wallace. “Fastest kid in the world,” Raiders safety Michael Huff said of Wallace. “You see him on film and you see corners playing off … he is probably track-Olympic-fast, to be honest.” The Raiders have been looking for answers all week now that they are without both starting cornerbacks, Ron Bartell (shoulder) and Shawntae Spencer (foot). Backups Pat Lee and Joselio Hanson didn’t inspire much confidence last week against the Dolphins.

Wallace is averaging 55 YPG and has had a TD in each game.

Dwayne Bowe also had a hell of a game against the Bills with 8 receptions, 102 yards, and 2 TDs. The Saints have a suspect defense which should allow Bowe to put up big numbers as well.

The bottom line is that you can’t go wrong with either of these guys. With the Raiders starting corners out, I think you should exploit that and take Mike Wallace this week.

Good luck!…

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Mike Wallace, Eric Decker, Torrey Smith, or Brandon Lloyd?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 15th, 2012 | Comment »

Question: Which 2 wide receivers should I start in week 2?

Mike Wallace vs NYJ
Eric Decker @ ATL
Torrey Smith @PHI
Brandon Lloyd vs. ARI

Answer:

Very nice group of wide receivers. Who did you take in the first 3 rounds? It looks like you got your QB and 2 RBs early and then went WR, WR, WR, WR and got a mighty fine set of receivers to work with.

I like Brandon Lloyd and Eric Decker this week.  The Pats should be able to score a ton of points at home against the Cardinals and hopefully Tom Brady looks Lloyd’s way in the endzone rather than the tight ends he typically looks to. I wasn’t high on Lloyd coming into this season since he’s Brady’s fourth option after Gronkowski, Herandnez, and Welker, but he still managed 5 receptions for 69 yards in week 1.

I also like Eric Decker due to his matchup against the Falcons. This game should be an offensive shootout and Manning will come out throwing to keep up with the Falcons high octane offense.

I love Torrey Smith and have him drafted on two of my teams as my WR3. He’ll be covered by Nnamdi Asomugha or Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie, so that will be a tough matchup for him.

The good news for Mike Wallace is that Darrell Revis is likely out this week with a concussion.

Good luck!…

Week 2 – WR – Start or Sit – Mike Wallace or Eric Decker?

Posted by in NFL Week 2 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on September 14th, 2012 | 3 Comments

Question: Fantasy Football Start or Sit Week 2?

Start 2 WRs:
Victor Cruz (vs TB)
Marques Colston (@CAR)
Stephen Hill (@PIT)
Mike Wallace (vs. NYJ)
Eric Decker (@ATL)
James Jones (vs. CHI)

Answer:

I would start Victor Cruz and Eric Decker. Cruz has the ability to exploit Eric Wright as Aqib Talib will be on Hakeen Nicks most of the game. I expect Atlanta vs. Denver to be a shootout so Manning should come firing and will look for his boy Eric Decker. Good luck!

Week 15 Start/Sit Advice? Steve Smith or Mike Wallace?

Posted by in NFL Week 15 Start 'Em Sit 'Em Advice on December 15th, 2011 | 1 Comment

Question: Pick 2 for Week 15.

I need 2 WR this week, so I would like to know which 2 WR you would start and why!

Steve Smith @ HOU
Mike Wallace @ SF
Laurent Robinson @ TB
Mike Thomas vs. NE

Which 2 wide receivers would you pick and why?

Answer

Steve Smith is your best receiver based on what he’s been going with Cam Newton and there’s no question that you stick with Mike Wallace although it’s against a tough 49ers defense. Miles Austin is back from his injury, so I would say no to Laurent Robinson.…
