The Dolphins made a small move at the NFL trade deadline to acquire Jeff Wilson from the 49ers, and it could pay huge dividends for their team this season. Fantasy managers are certainly reaping the benefits of Wilson playing in Miami.

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

Raheem Mostert will continue to work alongside Wilson, and Mostert deserves to be used as a flex option in Week 12 against Houston. But Wilson has a chance to be a star and should start in all leagues.

The Texans allow 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, which was Week 2 against Denver. Eight running backs have at least 100 total yards against the Texans, eight have scored touchdowns, including four with multiple scores, and eight have at least three receptions against Houston.

While the offense relies on Tua Tagovailoa and the passing game, Wilson has provided a spark to Miami’s running game. I see Wilson as the No. 1 running back in the league and could end up as a top-10 Fantasy pick given the matchup with the Texans.

Dolphins (vs. HOU)

The Texans are making a trade from Davis Mills to Kyle Allen and we’ll see if that changes anything for their offensive attack. Houston has been held to 17 points or less in four straight games and the Texans have allowed 15 sacks in their last four games against the Titans, Eagles, Giants and Commanders. The Dolphins defense should be tough in this matchup, especially with newly acquired pass rusher Bradley Chubb even more immersed in the game plan. And in Miami’s last game in Week 10 against Cleveland, the Dolphins had three sacks, one fumble recovery and allowed just 17 points. This should be a big week for Dolphins DST.

  • Chiefs (vs LAR)
  • Steelers (in IND)
  • Broncos (in CAR)

Bengals (on TEN)

The Bengals DST was supposed to be a quality Fantasy pick in Week 11 in Pittsburgh, but Cincinnati managed just two sacks and no turnovers while allowing 30 points. The Bengals have allowed at least 26 points in their last three road games against the Saints, Browns and Steelers, and the Titans offense is not a good matchup for this DST. Tennessee has just two interceptions and three sacks since Week 3, and the Titans have been sacked three times or less in five straight games. There are plenty of great DST options for Week 12, and you should avoid Bengals DST in this road game.
