Mike Wallace arrived at the Steelers complex Tuesday and appears ready to end his contract holdout. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mike Wallace arrived at the Pittsburgh Steelers complex Tuesday, and could be ready to end his contract holdout according to multiple media outlets. Wallace has missed all of training camp and preseason in hopes of landing a long-term deal with the Steelers. With the start of the regular season looming, he is expected to sign the team's $2.7 million one-year tender offer.

Analysis: We will have to wait until later in the afternoon for an official announcement, but it appears that Wallace is indeed finally returning to the Steelers, leaving Maurice Jones-Drew as the only remaining holdout in the NFL. Wallace will not be eligible to begin practicing until after Pittsburgh's preseason finale Thursday per CBA rules. You should feel safe drafting Wallace in your fantasy drafts, just know that all of his time spent away from the team has given Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders opportunities to take on expanded roles within the offense.
