2021 Fantasy Outlook
Practically overnight, Robinson became one of the league's best three-point shooters in 2019-20. He followed up that breakout campaign with another great effort in 2020-21. In his third season, the wing averaged 13.1 points while hitting 3.5 threes per game at 40.8 percent. He also contributed 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.4 minutes. Only two players have hit more threes than Robinson over the past two seasons (520) -- Damian Lillard (545) and Buddy Hield (553) -- but Robinson has the best percentage (42.7) of the trio. Despite Robinson doing little else on the court (though he's becoming an improved playmaker), he was able to rank 137th in per-game production last season. The Heat rewarded his production with a five-year, $90 million deal during the 2021 offseason -- the largest contract in NBA history for an undrafted player. Heading into 2021-22, nothing should change for the 27-year-old out of Michigan. He took 85 percent of his shots from beyond the arc last season, and that's where he'll continue to do his damage. There's room for him to make strides as a pick-and-roll ballhandler given his immense gravity as a shooter, but the Heat have plenty of other options who are more suited for that. Ultimately, Robinson is an extremely safe bet for fantasy managers in standard leagues with a final pick. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Duncan McBryde Robinson was born on April 22, 1994 in York, ME. The son of Jeffrey and Elisabeth Robinson, he attended The Governor's Academy in Newbury, MA before spending a post-graduate year at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire. He began his collegiate career at Division III Williams College before moving on to the University of Michigan. When Robinson made his NBA debut in 2018, he became the first former Division III player to appear in an NBA game since Devean George in 1999. Follow Robinson on Instagram @d_bo20. Robinson began his collegiate career at Division III powerhouse Williams. He became the first freshman starter in coach Mike Maker's six-year tenure and averaged 17.1 points and 6.5 rebounds. The 6-foot-8 forward hit 45.3 percent of his three-pointers. After the season, Maker left for Marist and Robinson opened up his recruitment, eventually ending up at Michigan. He redshirted for the 2014-15 season. The forward started 27 games in his first season as a Wolverine and took on a bigger than expected offensive role when Caris LeVert was injured. He averaged 11.2 points and connected on 45.0 percent of his three-pointers. Robinson helped Michigan into the second round of the NCAA Tournament with 13 points and 11 rebounds in the win over Tulsa. The forward only started three games as a junior and put up 7.7 points in 20.1 minutes. In his last season with the Wolverines, Robinson became an important player for a team that reached the National Championship game. He started 19 games, mostly in the first half of the season, and averaged 9.2 points. Robinson hit 237 three-pointers in his three years in Ann Arbor to place fourth on the school's all-time list.

Drains four triples in Game 4 loss
GMiami Heat
May 23, 2022
Robinson recorded 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), four rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes during Monday's 102-82 loss to Boston in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
ANALYSIS
With all of Miami's starters finishing with fewer than 10 points in the blowout defeat, Robinson and Victor Oladipo (23 points) were left to handle much of the offensive workload. Robinson had one of the better shooting lines for Miami, going 5-for-11 -- including 4-for-8 from three-point range -- in a game during which the team shot only 33.3 percent from the field overall. This was Robinson's highest point total since he scored 27 points in Game 1 of the first round against Atlanta on April 17.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Will need defensive improvement
GMiami Heat
June 8, 2022
Robinson will likely need to take a big step forward as a defender if he's going to regain a significant role in the Heat's rotation next season, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
The 28-year-old still has four years and almost $75 million remaining on his contract, but Robinson found himself on the end of the bench during the postseason when his three-point shot wasn't falling. Improvement in his own end would go a long way toward keeping him on the court when he isn't able to contribute offensively, but Robinson might also have less competition for minutes next season if Victor Oladipo departs in free agency.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Robinson went undrafted out of Michigan in 2018. Two years later, he was a regular starter on a team that made the NBA Finals. The 6-foot-7 wing earned his opportunities through one standout skill: his excellent three-point shooting. He scored 13.5 points per game while shooting 44.6 percent from beyond the arc, good for fourth-best among qualified players. On a per-36-minute basis, his 10.1 attempts from beyond the arc ranked fourth among qualifiers, while no qualified player attempted fewer than his 1.3 two-pointers. His sweet shooting stroke also showed up at the free-throw line, where he sunk shots at a 93.1 percent clip, though his style of play meant he attempted just 72 free throws all season. As you might expect for a player of his profile, he offered very little beyond scoring, adding just 1.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 0.5 steals per game. Still, quite a number of players have carved out very long careers based on little more than knockdown shooting from three. We've only seen one year from Robinson at that level, and his shooting could certainly regress, but he hardly could have established his reputation any better in his first full campaign.
Despite a solid college career at Michigan, one where he displayed a penchant for clutch long-distance shooting, Robinson nevertheless went undrafted in June 2018 and first found his way into the professional ranks via a Summer League contract with the Heat. He parlayed that opportunity into a two-way pact for the 2018-19 season by averaging 12.1 points (on 51.8 percent shooting, including 55.3 percent from three-point range), 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 25.6 minutes over seven games between the California Classic and Las Vegas tournaments. Robinson then continued to light it up in the G League with Sioux Falls, putting up 21.4 points (51.4 percent shooting, including 48.3 percent from three-point range), 4.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steal across 36.9 minutes over 33 games. He only saw 10.7 minutes per contest across 15 games at the NBA level during his rookie season, but his development continued over seven more games this past summer (16.3 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 3.4 APG, 1.0 SPG across 29.5 minutes). That was apparently enough to convince Miami that Robinson was worthy of another extended look this coming season, as his 2019-20 contract became fully guaranteed in mid-July. At 6-foot-8, Robinson is capable of filling either wing spot, which could certainly help his chances for playing time down the line. For the time being, it appears he's set for another extended G League stay during the forthcoming campaign; however, a stellar showing in training camp and preseason could potentially speed up his career progress, especially if Robinson can show promise as a viable source of second-unit scoring for a team that lost Dwyane Wade to retirement.
