Mike Wallace will sign his one-year tender offer from the Pittsburgh Steelers and rejoin the team after their preseason game against the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, multiple sources tell the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Wallace has been holding out from practice in hopes of garnering a more lucrative, long-term contract from the organization.
Analysis: Assuming all goes according to plan, Wallace will have two weeks to reestablish himself as the Steelers' primary deep threat and win the hearts of fantasy owners all over again. He may even participate in the team's preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers a week from Thursday, though that remains to be seen. Wallace is a classic boom-or-bust prospect as capable of putting up massive numbers as he is of disappearing in your starting lineup on a weekly basis. Antonio Brown should be the more consistent option, though with a lower ceiling. Either would make a quality WR2 in standard leagues, though they inhibit one another from being WR1-level prospects.
