Mike Wallace Fantasy Update: Steelers WR Catches 95-Yard TD pass

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace had another impressive fantasy performance on Sunday afternoon. He dazzled with a 95-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. Outside of that, though, he had just two receptions for 23 yards. Ben Roethlisberger did look at him seven times in the game. Still, fantasy owners are celebrating the touchdown and whatever bonuses they might have received from the length of it.

Wallace has emerged as one of the NFL's preeminent deep threats in the 2011 NFL season, and he's been potent in the Pittsburgh passing game all year. Wallace had 612 yards and four touchdowns entering Week 7, and hadn't had a game with under 76 receiving yards on the season; combine that with his potential to top 100 yards, as he did in the first three weeks of the season, and you have one of the best fantasy options at wide receiver in the league.
