Free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace has signed a 2-year $11.5 million deal with the Ravens and hopes to replace Torrey Smith as a much-needed big-play maker for a Baltimore offense in desperate need of a deep threat.

Wallace departs Minnesota after a forgettable one-year stint for the Vikings that saw him struggle to career-low numbers across the board. Wallace’s main asset, deep speed, was never a factor in Minnesota, and the 29-year-old wideout didn’t mesh with quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

“I need a good quarterback” Wallace told the Minneapolis StarTribune. By moving to Baltimore, Wallace certainly has one, as Joe Flacco boasts a Super bowl ring to go along with one of the league’s strongest throwing arms.

[the_ad id=”61410″]Most effective as a complimentary ‘9’ route-runner, Wallace has scored 8 or more touchdowns three times in his career and averaged over 1200 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons with Pittsburgh.

Meanwhile, Joe Flacco’s numbers tailed off last season as the Ravens haggard group of pass-catchers struggled and Flacco’s yards-per-attempt numbers slipped. Wallace’s presence should improve those numbers and open things up for Steve Smith, who returns for one final run.

Fantasy Spin: It’s a solid match. Wallace needed a fresh start and should be a solid fit on the field for Marc Trestman’s pass-happy offense. Wallace’s current ADP is nearly off the charts. With the prospects solid for a nice bounce back season, that makes him a solid, low-risk investment late in your fantasy draft.
