Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders were held out of practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders were held out of practice on Wednesday, via Mark Kaboly. However, neither player is believed to be injured and this is more likely to be a day of rest for certain players. The Steelers will face the Oakland Raiders in Week 3, when Wallace and Sanders should both be active.

Fantasy Analysis: Typically when a player is held out of practice, he does not play the week of. However, it is nothing new for veterans to receive a day of rest. Clearly one of these players has more fantasy value than the other, and that is Wallace. However, like Antonio Brown did last year, Sanders could see some action in games. Expect both of them to be ready to go in Week 3, where Wallace is a must-start and Sanders is a gut-instinct flex option.
