The Miami Heat had a bizarre Week 11. In a week that was supposed to feature a four-game schedule, Miami had one game postponed and finished the week with a 2-1 record.

Week 12, which brings a much lighter schedule for the Heat, continues Miami’s west coast road trip. The Heat play all three games on the road and have already dropped the first of these to the Golden State Warriors.

From a fantasy perspective, the last four games for the Heat have been extremely intriguing. The four-game stretch showcases five Heat players in the top-70 for total value.

Leading the charge is the Heat’s best overall player, Jimmy Butler. Only ranking behind LeBron James and Jrue Holiday for this time frame, Butler finished third in total value.

Catapulted by solid counting stats and elite free throw shooting, Butler now ranks sixth on the season in per-game value per Basketball Monster.

With his recent injury scare, Heat fans and Butler fantasy managers hope he is on the court sooner rather than later. That’ll be better for their fantasy rosters and the Miami Heat’s in real life.
