Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders were back in action at Steelers practice on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Steelers wide receivers Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders practiced in full on Thursday after being held out the day prior. Both receivers are expected to play in Week 3 on the road against the Raiders.

Fantasy Impact: Pittsburgh has certainly dealt with its fair share of injuries so far in 2012. Several players sat out of practice earlier in the week, but Wallace and Sanders appear to have just been receiving an extra day of rest to prepare for the Raiders this week. Their health directly affects the fantasy value of Ben Roethlisberger, who will still have two of his best targets to throw to this week. Oakland did not play well in the first two weeks of the season, so you can expect big things from the Pittsburgh offense in Week 3.
