March 2, 2020, 9:56 pmBam AdebayoC, Miami Heat
Bam Adebayo was huge in Monday's 105-89 win over the Bucks, scoring 14 points on 5-of-15 shooting while adding 13 rebounds, five dimes, a steal and four blocks.
Adebayo was 3-for-13 until late in the fourth quarter when he came up with two huge buckets to help put this game on ice. He also had a monster block with under a minute left and continues to play as one of the best bigs in the league. Brook Lopez is one of the best rim defenders so we'll excuse the bad shooting as Bam brought his A-game everywhere else.
March 2, 2020, 9:55 pmJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler scored 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting to go with six rebounds, a game-high seven assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Butler is still allergic to the 3-point line, but drilled a wide-open corner triple late in the fourth to put the game away. This game we saw his efficiency shoot back up which is exactly what we've been waiting for. He's also dishing out a career-high 6.2 dimes this season so he's adding value elsewhere.
March 2, 2020, 9:54 pmKendrick NunnPG, Miami Heat
Kendrick Nunn scored 13 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples on Monday.
Nunn continues to score at a decent rate, but outside of that he doesn't offer much. The Heat have plenty of capable wings as well so it's really hard to tout him as a must-own player when it just takes one bad shooting night to tank all of his value.
March 2, 2020, 9:54 pmJae CrowderPF, Miami Heat
Jae Crowder returned to action on Monday and scored 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers.
Crowder made his return a triumphant one as he knocked down five triples against the Bucks. Milwaukee's game plan is to allow teams to shoot the 3-ball and Crowder happily obliged and delivered a fat fantasy line. Plug him back in your lineups.
March 2, 2020, 9:54 pmGoran DragicPG, Miami Heat
Goran Dragic came off the bench on Monday and scored 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting while adding four rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers.
Dragic was awesome again on Monday, delivering solid plays and leading the bench unit against an elite Bucks defense. His efficiency wasn't up to par, but that comes with the territory when you play against a top defensive team.
March 2, 2020, 9:53 pmKelly OlynykC, Miami Heat
Kelly Olynyk scored 11 points on 3-of-4 shooting while adding one rebound, two assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on Monday.
Olynyk was on fire from deep tonight, but the low minutes are what worries us. He can put up numbers in a hurry, but if he can't see the floor for at least 20 minutes, it's hard to trust him, especially as we're heading into the fantasy playoffs.
February 29, 2020, 10:13 pmKelly OlynykC, Miami Heat
Kelly Olynyk slowed down on Saturday as a result of a bit of foul trouble and was limited to seeing just 16 minutes off the bench and put up seven points (2-of-4 shooting), two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.
Olynyk was a hot deep-league pickup based on the strength of his string of solid games recently. This, as mentioned, was a case of getting bit by the foul-trouble bug, making him a hold in 16-teamers or deeper.
February 29, 2020, 10:10 pmBam AdebayoC, Miami Heat
Bam Adebayo recorded his 37th double-double of the season on Saturday with 16 points (7-of-12 shooting), 12 rebounds, three assists and three blocks.
The Heat breakout star just keeps on amazing fans and fantasy owners alike. He's an absolute lock to finish the season way within the fantasy top-40 range. The scary thing is, this could just be the tip of his iceberg.
February 29, 2020, 10:06 pmGoran DragicPG, Miami Heat
Goran Dragic had himself an impressive showing in Saturday's 116-113 win over the Nets with a double-double featuring 19 points (6-of-16 shooting), 10 assists, three rebounds and four 3s in 32 minutes.
Dragic has been a consistent force for the Heat as their instant-offense guy off the bench this season. He's carved out reliable top-100 value and appears on track to keep that trajectory moving forward. Kendrick Nunn has been solid as the starting point guard, tallying 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three treys, four rebounds and one assist tonight.
February 29, 2020, 12:18 amJimmy ButlerSG, Miami Heat
Jimmy Butler finished with 26 points, five rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes on Friday as the Heat took down the Mavs, 126-118.
Butler was efficient in this one, as usual, and looks to be over his shoulder ailment. He still ranks 10th on the season and should be a major contributor to any fantasy owners battling in the playoffs in the coming weeks.
February 29, 2020, 12:13 amBam AdebayoC, Miami Heat
Bam Adebayo had a modest fantasy game on Friday evening, accounting for 14 points (3-for-10 FG), 11 rebounds and three assists in a win over the Mavs.
Bam is a top-40 player on the season and that production isn't going anywhere. He struggled with his shot tonight and should bounce back on Saturday when the Heat meet the Nets.
February 29, 2020, 12:08 amGoran DragicPG, Miami Heat
Goran Dragic played 32 minutes on Friday off the bench and scored 16 points to go along with five assists and four boards.
He played a lot more than fellow backcourt member Kendrick Nunn on Friday as they continue to handicap each other's fantasy value. Dragic has been usable in 14-team leagues this season and has snuck his way near top-100 value over the past two weeks. He's better of late and could serve a need as the fantasy playoffs get closer.
February 29, 2020, 12:03 amDuncan RobinsonF, Miami Heat
Duncan Robinson went 6-of-9 from deep for 24 points and added five rebounds in the Heat's win over the Mavs on Friday.
Robinson has been the most prolific three-point shooter in the NBA this year and continued proving why on Friday. He's been a major weapon for the Heat and for fantasy owners in categories leagues where threes are accounted for. Overall, he ranks right around the 100-mark and should maintain his shooting prowess the rest of the way.
February 28, 2020, 11:57 pmKelly OlynykC, Miami Heat
Kelly Olynyk nearly notched a triple-double in Friday's win over the Mavs, winding up with 13 points, nine assists and seven rebounds in only 19 minutes of play.
Olynyk displayed amazing efficiency in this one. He's ranked inside the top-60 over the past two weeks since his minutes have increased a bit and his ability to stuff the stat sheet is a major reason why. He is averaging fewer than 20 minutes per game over that span and on the season but has been productive in his time on the floor. Olynyk is even averaging 1.2 steals during that time which qualifies as a welcome bonus.
February 28, 2020, 11:52 pmKendrick NunnPG, Miami Heat
Kendrick Nunn had 16 points and three assists in the Heat's victory over the Mavs on Friday.
He only got 21 minutes, compared to Goran Dragic's 32, but still managed to put up decent numbers. Nunn owners have to be discouraged by this effort, as he had been on a little hot streak of late. He had been playing so well, in fact, that he ranked inside the top-40 over the last two weeks. This should just end up being a blip on what has otherwise been a very solid season for the undrafted rookie out of Oakland (Michigan).
