Mike Wallace scores ridiculous TD to salvage poor fantasy outing on MNF

Justin K. Aller

Mike Wallace had three receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown off eight targets during the Steelers' win over the Chiefs on Monday Night Football. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace had three receptions for 14 yards and a touchdown to help the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime on Monday Night Football. Wallace was targeted a team-high eight times on the night.

Wallace's yardage was easily his lowest output of the season. He remains a touchdown machine, however. Wallace has now scored in six of nine games played this season.

Fantasy Impact: Wallace salvaged the night for fantasy owners with an absurd touchdown catch. Wallace beat his defender by a step, controlled the ball with one outstretched hand and caught the ball with his thighs as he rolled to the ground on his back. Oh, and he did this all in a downpour. Some might call the play a fluke. They should be reminded that great players make great plays, which in turn makes them great fantasy options. Wallace is a great fantasy option.

Give Wallace a mulligan this week for the poor output. He has pretty consistent bet to gain 50-plus yards receiving this season, and his solid scoring clip makes him at least a WR2 in standard fantasy formats. He should remain in your starting lineup in Week 11 when the Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens.
