Mike Wallace could return to the Steelers soon, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace could be ending his holdout from the Pittsburgh Steelers soon, according to the Beaver County Times. Fellow wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders told the newspaper that there is a "buzz" around training camp.

"There's a little buzz around the team that he'll be coming back pretty soon," Sanders said. "I don't know the exact date, but it's looking pretty good."

Analysis: While Wallace isn't expected to join the team this week, he could return next week when the Steelers head back to Pittsburgh to practice at headquarters. This is big news from a fantasy perspective, because the sooner Wallace is back at practice, the less rust we can expect from the speedster to start the season. Wallace has the potential to turn in some massive individual performances on a weekly basis. He is pretty much a deep threat only, however, making him a weekly risk to bust, as well.
