It's no secret that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace is their biggest fantasy football asset. Mike Wallace however has some injured ribs, so his effectiveness might decrease if someone can actually catch him and get a hit on him. As always, numberFire.com has you covered with their fantasy football projections each week. This week with the Steelers match up with the Houston Texans and numberFire.com has Wallace rated as the No. 7-ranked wide receiver play, with a projection of 10.9 points.
Mike Wallace isn't going to be on your waiver wire, though.
Two other Pittsburgh Steelers wide receivers who could be a good one-week gamble likely are, however. Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown are likely available in most fantasy football leagues. Unless of course you're in a 30-man, 12-player roster league. In Yahoo! leagues, only 23 percent of owners have Antonio Brown on a roster while only 11 percent have Emmanuel Sanders. If you're really in need of a spark at a WR3 position, or you've suffered some injuries at the receiver position, both players could offer a potential spot start in a lineup.
