Wide receiver Mike Wallace is playing well at the right time for the Dolphins. He's set to play his first game in Pittsburgh since he left the Steelers for South Beach via free agency. Wallace has touchdowns in back-to-back games after only scoring once before then, way back in the second game of the season. He has been targeted 19 times in those same two games and has 199 yards to show for it.
A large part of Wallace's recent success is the play of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Tannehill has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the last two weeks. He's not exactly a superstar yet as he's a spot starter at best in fantasy leagues, but any positive counts on a rebuilding team. Tannehill will be in tough against the Steelers no doubt, but hopefully for fantasy owners he can find Wallace with frequency.
Running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to play against the Dolphins despite suffering a concussion last week. If he's at all limited this Sunday, Ben Roethlisberger will have to sling the rock against the Dolphins. Big Ben wasn't able to do enough to win against the Baltimore Ravens last week, but he did throw for 257 yards and two scores to go with two picks. He'll look to play better this week.
Receiver Antonio Brown needs to play better as well, especially now that the fantasy playoffs have arrived. He does have four touchdowns in his last five games, but he failed to score last week. Teammates Heath Miller, Emmanuel Sanders and Jericho Cotchery all seem to be getting more action than they were earlier in the season. Hopefully for Brown owners, Roethlisberger will revert back to his top pass catcher in Week 14.
