Mike Wallace continues to be a scoring threat for the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications.

After an extensive holdout leading into the preseason, Mike Wallace is showing no sign of having a slow start to the 2012 season. Wallace caught five passes for 74 yards and a touchdown against the Jets, marking the second weekend in a row he has found the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: Wallace was targeted just five times in Week 2, taking a backseat to Antonio Brown in that category. However, he was able to haul in every pass thrown his way. He scorched the Jets defense for a 37-yard touchdown in the third quarter, which capped of another solid day for fantasy owners. There's no reason to believe Wallace and Brown can't coexist to both provide big fantasy numbers each week. Plus, Wallace is the one putting six points on the board right now.
