2018 Fantasy Outlook
Winslow, who played 18 games due to injury in 2016-17, appeared in 68 games (25 starts) last season -- his third year in the league. While he managed to make 38.0 percent of his threes on 1.9 attempts, his shooting remains somewhat of a concern, as he has yet to shoot better than 43 percent from the field and 69 percent from the charity stripe in a given season. Shooting woes aside, Winslow has been solid rebounder, passer and defender, giving him Fantasy value in deeper formats. Per 36 minutes over the past two seasons (86 games), the Duke product is averaging 7.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and a combined 1.8 steals/blocks. He played 24.7 minutes per tilt last season -- a number that will be difficult to top given the presence of Josh Richardson, Kelly Olynyk, Dion Waiters and the overall deep Heat bench.

2015
Winslow missed all but 18 games last season – his second year in the league – due to wrist issues and surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right (non-shooting) shoulder. In the games he did play, he averaged 10.9 points (on 35.6 percent from the field), 5.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.4 steals across 34.7 minutes per game. While he was extremely inefficient from the field, the Heat clearly believed in Winslow’s potential as a major contributor for them in other ways – mainly on defense. Winslow has also been recovering ahead of schedule and is expected to be healthy by training camp, giving him an opportunity to work on his game prior to the season. That said, the Heat’s late-season surge without him has propelled them into playoff territory, which they weren’t expected to be in at the beginning of the year when Winslow was healthy. Now, if Winslow is unable to produce even minimally efficient on the offensive side of the ball, coach Erik Spoelstra may be quicker with the hook than he was during the first part of the 2016-17 campaign, which could have negative implications on Winslow’s Fantasy value. Overall, Winslow’s Fantasy stock is volatile at the moment, making him a risky pick in most formats.
Winslow was selected 10th overall by the Heat in the 2015 NBA Draft and immediately slid into a rotation role for one of the Eastern Conference's better teams, averaging 28.6 minutes per game in 78 appearances. While the 20-year-old held his own on the defensive end, he didn't make much of a splash from a fantasy standpoint, despite his big minutes load. Winslow contributed only 6.4 points (on 42.2% shooting from the field), 5.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 0.9 steals per game, with his numbers in the offensive categories in particular not inspiring a ton of confidence. The swingman didn't shoot the ball much better in the summer league this past July, but given his youth, there's plenty of reason for the Heat to believe he'll improve in that regard over time. The organization certainly seems to be banking on him taking at least a small step forward offensively in Year 2, as the offseason departures of Dwyane Wade and Luol Deng along with the likelihood that blood clots will prevent Chris Bosh from ever playing for the team again will open up even more minutes and shot attempts for Winslow. His efficiency could plunge further a bit with the added volume, but Winslow should easily surpass his averages from his rookie season in most categories. He's a good target for the later rounds of most drafts, but expecting a full-on breakout and selecting him much earlier than that may result in disappointment.
Winslow fell to the Heat at No. 10 overall in the 2015 NBA Draft and will have the opportunity to become a legitimate contributor for the team in his first NBA season. The 19-year-old is an exceptional rebounder for someone his size, and he showed it at Duke, where he managed to grab 6.5 rebounds per game at 6-6 for the Blue Devils on top of averaging 12.6 points per game on 49 percent shooting. Winslow also shot an impressive 42 percent from behind the arc in his lone season with the program. Now, as he enters his rookie season, Winslow will likely play behind veteran small forward Luol Deng, but will bring a lot to the table off the bench. The biggest thing Winslow was able to showcase at Duke was his impressive athleticism, both as a high-flyer and a lockdown defender. That athleticism and his length already make Winslow a legitimate on-ball defender in the NBA, so the sky is the limit should Winslow refine his offensive game, although he is already a crafty dribbler, very strong finisher, and solid outside shooter. While Winslow may not immediately be a huge statistical contributor when he enters the league, he could potentially provide solid contributions in the steals and rebounds categories for his position.
