2019 Fantasy Outlook
Adebayo parlayed his 2017-18 rookie year flashes into a bigger role last season. He came off the bench for 59 of his first 65 appearances in 2018-19, but Adebayo was given a bigger role down the stretch as coach Erik Spoelstra began to trust him over Hassan Whiteside. The result was Adebayo starting 22 of the final 23 games of the season. That's a role he should occupy full-time in 2019-20, as Whiteside was dealt to the Trail Blazers over the summer. In the 13 games Adebayo saw 30-plus minutes last season, he averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.6 assists and a combined 2.2 blocks/steals while shooting an impressive 59.8 percent from the field (102 attempts) and 72.6 percent from the charity stripe (62 attempts). While it seems Adebayo might be destined to be a low-usage offensive player, he should provide strong value to fantasy owners as a rebounder, defender and efficient scorer. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Adebayo, the 14th overall pick out of Kentucky in 2017, was able to make an impact as a rookie. He saw 19.8 minutes per game, averaging 6.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and a combined 1.1 blocks/steals. He even drew 19 starts while Hassan Whiteside missed games due to injury. In those tilts, Adebayo averaged 7.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists and a combined 1.1 steals/blocks across 24.9 minutes -- enough to make him relevant for a stretch in DFS. The 21-year-old doesn't project to see much of an increase in role this season, assuming Hassan Whiteside’s minutes plateau, rather than decrease again. As a result, he can likely be avoided once again during Fantasy drafts, but might be a nice waiver wire target in the case of some frontcourt injuries for the Heat.
Adebayo, a 6-foot-10 power forward/center with a 7-foot-3 wingspan out of Kentucky, was selected 14th overall by the Heat in the 2017 NBA Draft. He played one season in college, posting 13.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks across 30.1 minutes per game. More was expected from him, though, considering the lofty expectations placed on him out of high school. That said, the Heat seemingly feel good about Adebayo’s upside as an NBA rebounder and shot-blocker, despite his limited shooting range and tendency to get into foul trouble. Adebayo rewarded Miami’s confidence in him by having a dominant summer league in both Orlando and Las Vegas. In Orlando, he posted 17.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks across 30.8 minutes per game. In Vegas, he averaged 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals across 29.0 minutes per game. He’ll likely struggle to find playing time conducive to reliable Fantasy production however, as he’s seemingly behind Hassan Whiteside, Kelly Olynyk and James Johnson in the Heat’s frontcourt. For that reason, he probably won’t be relevant in most year-long Fantasy formats, though could end up providing value in DFS if the Heat get hit with some frontcourt injuries.
