The Eastern Conference-leading Miami Heat won all three of their home games and dropped their lone road game during Week 14.
In a week that saw Kyle Lowry miss all four games due to personal reasons, several other Heat players provided excellent fantasy value, thanks to their four-game slate. Tyler Herro also missed three of the four games, which provided further value to some of the Miami Heat’s fringe players this week.
Leading the way in his first full week back, Bam Adebayo held the most total fantasy value for Week 14. In eight-category value, Adebayo ranked 17th for the week on the back of 17.3 points per game and 8.5 rebounds per game.
Bam also racked up 1.8 steals per game to go along with 1.5 blocks per game in his fantastic fantasy week.
While Jimmy Butler saw a dip in scoring and efficiency, everything else remained solid across the board. Thanks to elite steals and free throw shooting, Butler secured a top-30 finish for the week.
Duncan Robinson had his best fantasy week of the season. Connecting on four triples per game, Robinson contributed 15.3 points per game on 52.6 percent shooting, landing at 35th for the week.
Leading the way for the Miami Heat in his first full week back, Bam Adebayo held the most total fantasy value for his team in Week 14.
On top of this, he swiped 1.8 steals per game as well. In a down year, this may be the week he needed to get back on track.
Gabe Vincent produced a solid week as a fill-in starting point guard. With high steals and assists, Vincent provided everything one would expect in a streaming situation.
His 45th place finish may be a fluke, but as long as Lowry remains sidelined, managers need to roll with Vincent.
Caleb Martin rounded out the fantasy-relevant players for the Heat in Week 14. Martin placed 61st on the week and brought his usual across-the-board production.
He shot 56.8 percent from the field and snagged 1.5 steals per game, to go along with decent points, triples, rebounds, and free throw percentage. Despite having limited upside due to usage, Martin has been solid all season in the 50-80 zone.
The Heat are back down to a three-game week for Week 15. This means that fringe players like Max Strus and Dewayne Dedmon can likely remain on the waiver wire.
It also means that players like Martin, Vincent, and Robinson should see a downgrade in total value.
Lowry and Herro could also return and devastate the value of the aforementioned trio. Either way, Butler and Adebayo should still continue to roll at the moment.
They are not only leading the Miami Heat to the playoffs, but they are also leading their fantasy managers to the fantasy playoffs. If you can acquire one or both of the Heat’s superstars, make a trade as soon as possible!
