Fantasy Football Week 12 Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em: Jeff Wilson, Tua Tagovailoa, Tyler Lockett Blue Chip Options

I always like to start this column the week of Thanksgiving by simply saying thank you to all of you who read Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em regularly. It means a lot that you continue to trust us with your fantasy dilemmas, and I hope we continue to guide you in the right direction.

Please be sure to set your lineups early on Thursday with three games on Thanksgiving. And enjoy the holiday weekend with your families.

But if you need help with your fantasy teams, we’ll be with you all weekend, as always, at CBS Sports HQ and on our Fantasy Football Today podcast. And please get in touch with any questions as always using #AskFFT on Twitter.

Although you should be resting during this time, you may be sweating some fantasy worries about your lineup. And we want to make sure your teams are headed in the right direction with the fantasy playoffs fast approaching.

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 definitely benefit from Wilson playing in Miami.

In two games with the Dolphins, Wilson posted 37 PPR points, with at least 16 PPR points in each outing. 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 targets.

Raheem Mostert will continue to work in tandem with Wilson, and Mostert is worth using as a flex option in Week 12 against Houston. But Wilson has the chance to be a star and should start in all leagues.

The Texans are allowing the most Fantasy points to opposing running backs, and the 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 totaled at least 100 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 runs through Tua Tagovailoa and the passing game, Wilson has provided a spark in Miami’s run game. I think Wilson is the No. 1 running back in all leagues and he could end up as a top 10 Fantasy option given the Texans matchup.

Dolphins (vs. HOU)

The Texans trade quarterback 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 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 strong in this game, especially with newly acquired quarterback 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, a fumble recovery and allowed just 17 points. This should be a big week for Dolphins DST.

  • Bosses (vs. LAR)
  • Steelers (in IND)
  • Broncos (in CAR)

Bengals (in TEN)

The Bengals DST should have been 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 allowed at least 26 points in their last three road games against the Saints, Browns and Steelers, and the Titans offense isn’t a great matchup this DST. Tennessee has just two interceptions and three fumbles since Week 3, and the Titans have been sacked three times or less in five straight games. There are a lot of great DST options for Week 12 and you should avoid Bengal DST in this road game.
