ANALYSIS: Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace has turned it on of late to become the best receiver in Baltimore and had four catches for 60 yards against the Colts on Saturday. Wallace has averaged eight targets per game over the last five games and is now up to 708 yards on the season. The speedster is also averaging 15.1 yards per reception this season, showing his breakaway talent, and that number is up to 18.7 yards per catch over the last four weeks as well.

Wallace tied with Benjamin Watson and Danny Woodhead for the most targeted Ravens on Saturday with six and no other wide receiver had more than four. It may not be ideal to play Baltimore's passing game, but Wallace has found a way to be the difference maker from a passing attack that only sees Wallace over 500 receiving yards this season. Wallace and Jeremy Maclin are close in targets this season (Wallace has 79 and Maclin has 72), but Maclin is only averaging six targets per game over the last five games and missed the last game against Indianapolis.

Wallace and the Ravens will play the Bengals (who allow the 3rd-fewest points to fantasy WR) to close the season. While the matchup is not ideal, quarterback Joe Flacco seems to have found his stride in deep balls to Wallace and the prospect of big plays may be too tempting to resist. Wallace is not the best play on the board for Week 17, but many leagues give bonus points for 40 or 50+ yard receptions, something that is always in play with Wallace.
