Roberto Wallace may not be on your deep radar, but he should be now.  With Ocho headbutting his way out of Miami, the Z receiver position is now Wallace’s to lose.  In his first preseason action, he looked good with both Matt Moore and Ryan Tannenhill at QB.  He finished with 71 yards receiving on 4 catches using his 6’4 225lb frame to get open against defenders and catch the ball in traffic.  This whole thing with Chad could be a blessing in disguise for both fantasy owners and the Dolphins.  Keep your eye Roberto Wallace in the upcoming weeks.
