Johnson -- in his third season -- was given increased responsibility within the Heat’s offense during the 2016-17 campaign, seeing his usage rate rise from 16.8 to 20.9 percent. He’s essentially the definition of a combo guard, spending 53 percent of his time at point guard and 47 percent of his time at shooting guard last year. He continued to shoot the rock well from beyond the arc at 37.2 percent, though saw his overall field-goal percentage dip from 48.6 percent to 43.3 percent, largely due to his increased responsibility as a scorer. While Johnson didn’t make a huge leap in any of his counting stats, he impressively reduced his turnovers per 100 possessions from 2.8 to 2.1 despite his increased touches. The Heat have made no changes to their backcourt heading into the 2017-18 season, making it likely that Johnson will see a similar workload as he did last year. Though he probably won’t make huge statistical jumps, if Johnson is able to distribute at a slightly higher clip and increase his overall shooting efficiency, he’ll be a solid player to target in a variety of Fantasy formats because of his workload and ability to play both guard slots.

  2. Tyler Johnson 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Johnson appeared in just 32 games for the Heat last season, but was able to show flashes of being an effective member of the team's backcourt rotation in his limited role, finishing with averages of 5.9 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.0 steal in nearly 19 minutes per game. Now, at 23 years old and entering just his second year in the league, Johnson has plenty of room to grow but currently remains buried on the team's depth chart. At the shooting guard position, he is likely already behind both Dwyane Wade and Gerald Green in the rotation, so he will have to beat out rookie guard Josh Richardson for that third spot. However, given how thin the team currently is at point guard, it is possible Johnson could see some run at that position. Regardless, Johnson is in the final year of his contract with Miami, so he will be looking to make the best of any time he gets on the floor. And when he is at his best, Johnson is a capable shooter and solid rebounder for someone his size, but his production relies entirely on his playing time.
  3. Tyler Johnson 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    Johnson earned a spot on the Heat after an impressive stretch of games playing in both the Orlando Pro Summer League and the Las Vegas Summer League for the Heat. In 11 games, he averaged 12.2 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.5 assists on 22 minutes per game. The rookie did enough to impress head coach Erik Spoelstra this summer, but the graduate of Fresno State may ultimately be the last guy on the bench this season for the Heat. Entering the season with an unguaranteed contract will likely pose problems for the 22-year-old's long-term status with Miami. It's not impossible to imagine him in a Heat uniform all season, although it seems like a foregone conclusion that he'll struggle to see much NBA action in 2014-15.
