Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders are listed as co-starters at split end for the Steelers' Week 13 matchup against the Ravens. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders are listed as co-starters at split end for the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 13 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said "situations" will determine who enters the game opposite Antonio Brown.

Tomlin is apparently disappointed in Wallace's production in recent weeks. He has caught just eight passes for 47 yards and a touchdown off 22 targets over the last three weeks, all while Brown has been on the sideline with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Impact: Regardless of a ribs injury to his starting quarterback, Wallace's coaches expect a lot out of the speedster, clearly. Over the same three-game span, Sanders had 10 catches for 187 yards off 21 targets. At this point, Sanders may have to be considered the de facto starter.

The fantasy value of both wideouts could suffer with Brown's return this week, however. Brown should be near 100 percent, and will command plenty of targets. None of the three receivers are recommended fantasy starters with Charlie Batch expected to start at quarterback once again.
