WR Mike Wallace is lining up in the Dolphins' backfield

Last season, Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace @Wallace17_daKid lined up on the right side of the formation about 90 percent of the time. With a change at offensive coordinator has come a change in philosophy on how to handle Wallace. First-year OC Bill Lazor has been moving Wallace to each side of the formation and into the slot during OTAs. And apparently behind the formation, too.
Wallace told NFL.com's Jeff Darlington that he has been lining up behind the quarterback in recent OTAs He also said he caught a touchdown out of the backfield last week.

Fantasy Analysis:

I'm getting more interested in Wallace the more I read about how Miami's coaching staff is trying to be creative in getting him the ball. He still shouldn't be drafted as anything more than a WR3 or WR4, but last year's disappointing season has made him a possible mid-round steal in fantasy drafts.
