Fantasy Focus: The Dog Days Of Summer #80


2012 #80 Mike Wallace WR Pittsburgh Steelers Wallace had his usual amount of catches 63 but his yards and touchdowns were way down. He had less than 1,000 yards receiving for the first time since 2009 while only catching 8 touchdowns.  Now Wallace is taking his talents to South Beach.  Wallace could be extremely productive or just average, but people will be hoping for productive in the Florida Sun.  Wallace in a new organization and offense is a huge question mark so draft and trade for him with caution.

Retro #80 2002- Packers Defense- The Packers D in 2002 were high scorers early in the season but if you made a move to pick them up for the fantasy playoff they failed you in the end.  They had 43 sacks 24 interceptions and 22 fumble recoveries.

Look Ahead #80

ESPN- Owen Daniels TE Houston Texans- Daniels is in the 2nd tier of tight ends.  He either has big days with catches and yards or seems to get a short TD pass. Either way he never hurts you with him in your starting lineup.

CBS Sportsline- Zac Stacy RB St. Louis Rams- With Isaiah Pead suspended CBS is rating Stacy this high that he could be the Steven Jackson replacement.  The Rams offense should be improved so the starting RB for the Rams could be a good #2 running back option in 2013.
