ANDY BEHRENS: It's time for a Spiced Take presented by Captain Morgan.


Jeff Wilson showed up in Miami and immediately took a man's job. He just played 61% of the snaps in his last game for Miami, handled 19 touches, gained 143 yards. He has become the number one running back, with Raheem Mostert in almost a rotational role. And now Wilson gets a Houston defense that ranks dead last against the run by a mile.

We're looking at 20 carries for Wilson this week. Let's call it, hmm, 133 scrimmage yards, 2 receptions, officially 1 touchdown but possibly 2. He is an absolute must-start this week.
