Mike Wallace punctuates fantasy outing with 51-yard touchdown

Jeff Zelevansky

Mike Wallace had 66 yard receiving on three receptions to help the Steelers beat the Giants on Sunday. He had a 51-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace had three receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown to help the Pittsburgh Steelers defeat the New York Giants on Sunday. He gained 51 yards on a fourth quarter catch-and-run on a short pass from Ben Roethlisberger.

Wallace was targeted just five times on the night after being targeted a whopping 24 times over his previous two games. His touchdown catch was his fifth this season.

Fantasy Impact: While he needed the long touchdown reception to salvage his fantasy outing for owners, it should be noted that the electrifying play he made is the reason Wallace is a great player to begin with. Wallace continues to be a solid WR1/WR2 for fantasy owners thanks to his nose for the end zone, despite the fact that he has just one game with over 100 yards receiving this season.

With Antonio Brown potentially sidelined going forward with an ankle injury, Wallace could become an even bigger part of the offense. Keep an eye on injury reports this week as the Steelers gear up to go up against a bad Kansas City Chiefs secondary in Week 10.
