The Dolphins' high priced off-season acquisition is still struggling to break out as Miami's go-to wide receiver. Wallace is coming off a five catch, 76 yard performance in a loss to the Buffalo Bills, but has been kept out of the endzone since week two. The Dolphins paid Wallace to be a top ten wide receiver, but he has been unable to stand out above Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson - with all three being used similarly in the Miami offense. Wallace could have another long week if Aqib Talib returns from injury, as he has been excellent in silencing opponents number one wide receivers so far this season. Fantasy owners can count on Mike Wallace as no more than a WR 3 this week, and I would even recommend finding a better option if Talib returns.

The former star wide receiver has become just an afterthought in the Cowboys offense, making him no more than a bench player in fantasy leagues. Austin was dealing with a hamstring injury, but returned to the lineup in week six, but has been held catchless over the past two games. Not only can fantasy owners not count on Austin as a starter anymore, but he is on the verge of being dropable in most leagues. Fantasy owners should not consider starting the Cowboys wide receiver this week.
