Miami's defense may need work, but their offense is effective. Only the Cowboys allow more points per game (32.4) than the Dolphins (31.6), but no team has more yards per game (5,507) than Miami.
In other words, the Jets won't be able to keep up with players like Tyreek Hill and Raheem Mostert if Wilson doesn't throw the ball. Things will get easier for the Jets in Week 16 against Washington's league-worst defense, which makes Wilson a pretty good insurance policy for most fantasy teams.

PO: Elijah Mitchell (San Francisco 49ers)
He may be the NFL's 88th rushing leader with 149 yards in nine games, but if something happened to league leader Christian McCaffrey, most of his yards would go to Mitchell.
Mitchell missed last week's game against the Seahawks with a knee injury, but participated in Wednesday's practice on a limited basis. Last week, Jordan Mason scored a touchdown in relief of McCaffrey, but Mitchell likely would have taken over had he been available.
This week, San Francisco will face an Arizona team that allowed the second-most points to running backs. In two weeks they will travel to Washington to face the league's worst defense.
It never hurts to have players from the best teams on the bench. This season, the 49ers are second in total yards and third in points. Mitchell will never be McCaffrey, but he's a reasonable candidate to start a fantastic playoffs.

WR: Wan'Dale Robinson (New York Giants)
Robinson led the Giants with six catches on seven targets for 79 yards during the team's upset victory over the Packers on “Monday Night Football.” His 32-yard catch in the fourth quarter helped the team score the game-winning field goal.
He also ran for 32 yards in the second quarter, which could have come in handy against a New Orleans team that gave up the seventh-fastest yards in the league. After the game against the Saints, the Giants have two games to play against Philadelphia, which has the fifth-worst pass defense in the NFL.

TE: Chigoziem Okonkwo (Tennessee Titans)
The Titans play the Texans this week and again in Week 17. Okonkwo has seen at least five targets in four of his last five games and had a season-high 9.60 fantasy points against the Dolphins in Week 14.
Houston gives up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends. With an average of 9.1 fantasy points over the last three games, Okonkwo offers a relatively safe floor for the next three weeks.

Daylight saving time: Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons defense only scored one fantasy point against Tampa Bay, but had 17 points against the Jets in Week 13. This week they will face Carolina, a team that didn't score a touchdown against the Saints and allowed opposing defenses the fourth-most fantasy points. this season

K: Cairo Santos: (Chicago Bears)
Santos responded to last week's recommendation with three field goals and scored 11 fantasy points against the Lions. He has made at least three field goals in his last four games, averaging 13.5 fantasy points per game.
