Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace's exact return date to the team might be uncertain, but according to ProFootballWeekly, his value at the fantasy wide receiver position in 2012 is certain.

Wallace landed at No. 9 on ProFootballWeekly's annual ranking of fantasy football wide receivers, besting the likes of the Giants' Hakeem Nicks and the Saints' Marques Colston.

In 2011, Wallace caught 72 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns. On the strength of his third season in the black and yellow, Wallace has held out of preseason activity thus far in 2012, but those numbers also translate to high regard come draft time for fantasy prognosticators and analysts.

Wallace isn't the only Steeler on the list, as Steelers receiver Antonio Brown lands at No. 25. Brown was the beneficiary of a long-term contract extension from the Steelers, and fantasy owners will expect big things from Brown in his third year.

Emmanuel Sanders lands at No. 79 on the list, giving the Steelers three solid fantasy options at the position.
