Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown were very productive for fantasy owners during the Steelers' loss to the Raiders on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.
Mike Wallace led the Pittsburgh Steelers with eight receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders. Antonio Brown pitched in 87 yards and another touchdown on seven receptions in the loss. Both wideouts were targeted 11 times on the day.
Fantasy Impact: Sunday's game was highly encouraging for fantasy owners worried that the two receivers cannot coexist and be productive. Heath Miller had 10 targets of his own, meaning three players combined for 70 percent of Ben Roethlisberger's targets on the day. While you can't expect big performances from Wallace and Brown every week, they should be solid WR2/Flex plays most of the time going forward.
