Mike Wallace Fantasy Update: Despite Overturned Touchdown, Pittsburgh Wideout Has Effective Night

The Pittsburgh Steelers clinched their tenth win of the season on Thursday night, kicking off Week 15 in the NFL with a 14-3 victory over the Cleveland Browns. The big news of the evening, and for Mike Wallace fantasy owners, was the scary ankle injury Ben Roethlisberger sustained in the second quarter. Roethlisberger would return in the second half but Antonio Brown, and not Wallace, was the beneficiary on Thursday.

Coming on the heels of a two touchdown game against Cincinnati, Wallace finished with a respectable four catches for 57 yards. He was held out of the end zone this week, although it appeared he had scored his ninth of the season in the third quarter. The score was overturned when replay showed his knee grazed the grass before he was able to break the plane. In addition to the 57 yards through the air, Wallace did have one rush for 21 yards.
