Dolphins want to make WR Mike Wallace a complete receiver

The Dolphins did many things last year with Mike Wallace @Wallace17_daKid that he was already used to. Lined him up right, sent him deep. Lined him up right, sent him deep.
Those days are over in Bill Lazor's offense. He wants Wallace and all of Miami's wideouts to do more. They will run a variety of routes and line up all over the formation. There will be a lot of motion and some end-arounds. That puts the onus on Wallace, never a great technical player, to adapt to the Dolphins' timing attack.
"I think I'll get to run everything," Wallace said last weekend. "I'll be able to be a complete receiver instead of a one-dimensional guy. Coach tells me every day he's going to work me to continue to push me to boundaries I've never been to. ... I'm excited about it."
There have been reports of Wallace and quarterback Ryan Tannehill @ryantannehill1 already connecting better on deep passes than last season.

Fantasy Analysis:

It should also be mentioned that Wallace didn't practice today due to some unspecified muscle soreness, but he should be OK soon.
There is bound to be a learning curve for Wallace, but at least Lazor is being imaginative with him. Previous OC Mike Sherman criminally underutilized him. There is bounce-back potential here for Wallace as the No. 1 target in Lazor's fast-paced scheme. He is a nice WR3.
