Pittsburgh Steelers Mike Wallace found the end zone in Week 1 vs. Denver. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace was in the lineup on Sunday night versus the Denver Broncos. The speedy Pitt receiver finished with four catches, for 37 yards and a touchdown. Though the Steelers suffered a loss, Wallace remained productive, finding the end zone in Week 1.

Fantasy Analysis: Certainly, Wallace has had much better statistical outings than what he did on Sunday. However, he had come in late after an extended holdout, so his lack of yards and targets in Week 1 was no surprise. Wallace is perhaps the league's best deep threat with his elite speed -- and Ben Roethlisberger looks for him often. Mike Wallace is a must-start in fantasy leagues each week. Look for him to have bigger performances than his Week 1 outing.
