Miami Heat DFS Spin
Jimmy Butler played 33 minutes in Saturday’s 102-97 loss to the Bulls, scoring 25 points (8-of-16 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs) with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers. Butler has scored 25 points or more in each of his last three games, shooting 30-of-49 from the field. He’s closing in on top 25 per-game value in 9-cat formats, which is exactly what his Yahoo ADP was.
The issue on Saturday was that Butler, Bam Adebayo, and Duncan Robinson (17/3/7 with four 3-pointers) didn’t get much help from their teammates, as no other Heat player scored more than eight points (Kyle Lowry) on the night. Miami plays four games in Week 5, beginning with a rematch with the Bulls on Monday.
Chicago Bulls DFS Spin
DeMar DeRozan shot 6-of-12 from the field and 9-of-13 from the foul line in Saturday’s 102-97 win over the Heat, scoring 23 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes. The Bulls, who went more than seven minutes without making a shot to begin Saturday’s game, stormed back in the fourth quarter to end their two-game skid. While all five starters hit double figures, DeRozan shot 4-of-6 from the field in the fourth quarter to push the Bulls over the top.
Even with the team’s struggles and recent reports about the front office potentially pulling the plug, DeRozan is still approaching top 50 per-game value in 9-cat formats. Alex Caruso, who is providing top 50 value, started again and finished the win with 11 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes. Chicago will play four games in Week 5, beginning Monday night with a rematch against the Heat.
