With back-to-back quality seasons and a growing reputation as a playmaker, Wallace is quickly closing in on the top tier of fantasy receivers. Arguably the fastest wideout in the league today, Wallace has been a tough cover for most defensive backs. That speed, combined with a reliable pair of hands, helped the Ole Miss product take over Pittsburgh's top receiver slot from the now retired Hines Ward. With the tremendous rapport he's gained with
Ben Roethlisberger, Wallace has put up top-10 fantasy point totals at his position in each of the last two seasons. He's a good bet to post 1,100-plus yards and eight to 10 touchdowns. However, the longer he continues his holdout from camp, the more concerned fantasy owners should be. With no true gauge on his conditioning or preparedness for the season, it might be wise to inch him slowly down draft boards and play it conservative until he reports.
