Fantasy Football Week 12 Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em: Jeff Wilson, Tua Tagovailoa, Tyler Lockett’s blue-chip options

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

Remember 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 on CBS Sports HQ and on our Fantasy Football Today podcast. And please reach out to us with any questions as always using #AskFFT on Twitter.

While you should relax during this time, you may be sweating some Fantasy worries about your training. And we want to make sure your teams are heading in the right direction with the Fantasy Playoffs fast approaching.

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

In two games with the Dolphins, Wilson scored 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 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 a shot at becoming a star and should be a starter 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.

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

Dolphins (against HOU)

The Texans are making a quarterback pass 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 allowed 15 sacks in their last four games against the Titans, Eagles, Giants and Commanders. The Dolphins defense is expected to be tough in this matchup, especially with newly acquired pass rusher Bradley Chubb even more immersed in the game plan. And in Miami’s final game in Week 10 against Cleveland the Dolphins had three sacks, a fumble recovery and allowed only 17 points. This should be a big week for the DST Dolphins.

  • Chiefs (against LAR)
  • Steelers (at IND)
  • Broncos (at CAR)

Bengali (to 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 match for this DST. Tennessee has just two interceptions and three fumbles since Week 3, and the Titans have been sacked three times or fewer in five straight games. There are many great daylight saving time options for week 12 and you should avoid Bengal daylight saving time in this on the go meeting.
