Mike Wallace injury update: Fantasy prospects boosted by return of Ben Roethlisberger

Mike Wallace is expected to play for the Steelers on Sunday against the Chargers despite being listed on team's injury report with a knee injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace is expected to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. He was listed on the team's injury report with a knee injury, but after being held out of practice Wednesday as a precaution, Wallace was able to practice fully Thursday and Friday.

Wallace has been quiet lately. He has not had more than 44 yards receiving, or scored a touchdown in his last three games, all of which have featured someone other than Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback. Fortunately for him, Roethlisberger is expected to return from a serious ribs injury this week.

Fantasy Impact: Wallace has lost playing time due to the emergence of Emmanuel Sanders and the return of Antonio Brown, so he isn't a highly-recommended fantasy option at the moment. That said, he could very well be a solid WR3 or Flex option now that Big Ben is back for the Steelers. Wallace is always high risk/high reward fantasy option, but this week especially.
