The Dolphins took a small step at the NFL trade deadline to bring in Jeff Wilson from the 49ers, and it could pay off hugely for their team this season. Fantasy managers definitely benefit from Wilson being based in Miami.

In two games with the Dolphins, Wilson has 37 PPR points, with at least 16 PPR points in each game. He was a star in Week 10 against Cleveland with 17 carries for 119 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for 24 yards on five goals.

Raheem Mostert will continue to work with Wilson and Mostert is worthy of being used as a flex option in Week 12 against Houston. But Wilson has a chance to be a star and he should start in all leagues.

The Texans grant the most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and a running back has scored at least 13 PPR points against Houston in all but one game this season, against Denver in Week 2. Eight running backs have at least 100 total yards against the Texans, eight have touchdowns, including four with multiple points, and eight have at least three receptions against Houston.

While the offense runs through Tua Tagovailoa and the passing game, Wilson has added a spark to Miami’s running game. I consider Wilson the No. 1 running back in all leagues, and given the matchup with the Texans, he could end up as a top 10 fantasy option.

Dolphins (vs. HOU)

The Texans are making a quarterback switch from Davis Mills to Kyle Allen, and we’ll see if that changes anything for their struggling offense. Houston has been held to 17 points or fewer in four straight games, and the Texans have conceded 15 sacks in their last four games against the Titans, Eagles, Giants and Commanders. The Dolphins’ defense should be strong in this matchup, especially with newly acquired passrusher Bradley Chubb becoming even more immersed in the game plan. And in Miami’s last game of Week 10 against Cleveland, the Dolphins had three sacks, a fumbled recovery and conceded just 17 points. This should be a big week for the Dolphins DST.

  • Chiefs (vs. LAR)
  • Steelers (at IND)
  • Broncos (at CAR)

Bengal (at TEN)

The Bengals DST was supposed to be a quality fantasy option in Week 11 in Pittsburgh, but Cincinnati managed just two sacks and no turnovers while allowing 30 points. The Bengals have conceded at least 26 points in their last three away games against the Saints, Browns and Steelers, and the Titans’ offense isn’t a great matchup for this DST. Tennessee has only two interceptions and three fumbles since Week 3, and the Titans have had three or fewer sacks in five straight games. There are plenty of great DST options for Week 12, and you’ll want to avoid the Bengals DST in this street matchup.
