2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year, $5.45 million contract with the Heat in July of 2017. Heat exercised $3.45 million team option for 2019-20 in September of 2018.
Another strong performance Saturday
CMiami Heat
December 9, 2018
Adebayo totaled 14 points (7-10 FG) eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 29 minutes during Saturday's 121-98 victory over the Clippers.
Adebayo was in some early foul trouble which limited his playing time Saturday. He was still able to put up a solid all-around line for the second consecutive game, making the most of his promotion to the starting lineup. Much of his production came in the last quarter when the Heat were pulling away so it needs to be put in context. Hassan Whiteside (personal) could return for the next game which will likely send Adebayo back to the bench. However, as long as he is starting, Adebayo remains a must-add player.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
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.
