Mike Wallace practiced with the Steelers for first time on Monday since signing his tender offer last week. Wallace stayed on the field longer than most of his teammates, and later told reporters that he has been training and learningTodd Haley's playbook throughout during the months of his holdout.
Fantasy Impact: After Chris Johnson showed up to practice out of shape last season following a lengthy holdout, fantasy owners are surely skeptical of what Wallace can accomplish right away. It seems, though, that the fourth-year receiver won't take long to get accustomed to his regular schedule now that he's back. He already built a strong chemistry with Ben Roethlisberger is his first three seasons, so that's a plus for his owners. The one thing he'll struggle with at first is the terminology of the new playbook in Pittsburgh, but he's actively working to master it. Fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about Wallace going forward.
