Emmanuel Sanders may be limited in practice this week for the Pittsbugh Steelers, but he is expected to play Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, according to the Beaver County Times. Sanders is dealing with a shoulder sprain following last week's win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Fellow wideout Mike Wallace may also be limited due to a knee injury but, like Sanders, he is expected to play against the Chargers. Wallace had five catches for 44 yards compared to five catches for 60 yards for Sanders last week.
Fantasy Impact: Wallace was on the field for 41 offensive snaps compared to 49 for Sanders, but he saw eight targets instead of six. The two receivers basically occupy the same spot on the depth opposite Antonio Brown, and will likely cut into each other's fantasy value going forward.
Sanders is probably the better fantasy receiver at the moment. The Steelers' coaching staff have expressed disappointment in Wallace recently, and Sanders' role has been on a steady climb throughout the season. Neither should be considered better than a Flex/WR3 option, especially with Charlie Batch at quarterback.
