2021 Fantasy Outlook
After an impressive playoff run in the bubble during the 2020 playoffs as a rookie, Herro was viewed as having plenty of upside as a sophomore last season. While he did improve, it wasn't the leap forward that fantasy managers expected. Herro ranked 131st in per-game production last season behind 15.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 30.3 minutes. There are encouraging signs of growth if you know where to look. He decreased his mid-range jumpers, replacing them with more shots at the rim, and he improved as a finisher at the basket. He also increased his vision significantly, jumping from 3.9 assists per 100 possessions to 5.6 assists per 100 possessions while keeping his turnovers nearly stagnant. Heading into 2021-22, Herro should practically be locked into minutes in the high-20s, and he should continue to occupy a sixth-man role. However, there are conflicting factors when considering Herro's potential production. He's 21 years old, has stepped up in the postseason and is making improvements. But, the Heat got significantly better in the offseason -- adding Kyle Lowry and retaining Victor Oladipo -- meaning Herro won't need to score 15 points every night for the Heat to win. He's someone that fantasy managers in dynasty leagues should feel good about long-term, but Herro might not be a great option this season. It's fair to expect him to be drafted inside the top 100, but that's far from a guarantee to pay off. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Tyler Christopher Herro was born Jan. 20, 200 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is the son of Jen and Chris Herro and has two brothers, Austin and Myles. While at Kentucky, Herro studied communications. Herro's college teammates gave him the nickname "Boy Wonder". Outside of basketball, Herro's interests include fashion and photography. He has his own charitable foundation, The T. Herro Foundation, which strives to support and inspire youth through community events, camps and other programs with the goal to cultivate the heroes of tomorrow. When Herro's playing career is over, he'd like to coach. You can follow Herro on Twitter @raf_tyler. The 2018-19 Kentucky Wildcats were a deep and talented team, but Herro was the only player who started all 37 games for the team. Coach John Calipari mixed his starting lineup and had to deal with some injuries, but Herro was a consistent scoring presence. He was second on the team with 14.0 points while also adding 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. The 6-foot-5 guard hit 35.5 percent of his three-pointers. Herro scored at least 20 points six times, including a season-high 29 points in a comeback win over Arkansas. He had his lone double-double game with 15 points and 13 rebounds in a win over Tennessee. The guard helped the Wildcats get to the Elite Eight. He knocked down 19 points in a win over Houston and was named to the All-Midwest Region team to go along with SEC All-Freshman and All-SEC Second Teams. After his freshman season, Herro declared for the 2019 NBA Draft. He was chosen by the Miami Heat with the 13th overall pick.

Won't play in Game 4

May 23, 2022
Herro (groin) won't play Monday in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Herro was listed as questionable after departing Game 3, and his groin is still bothering him to the point that he'll be held out as the Heat play their fourth game in a seven-day span. Prior to sustaining the injury, Herro struggled through Game 3, finishing with eight points on just 4-of-15 shooting in 20 minutes of action. Hayes adds that Herro is hoping that resting the hamstring Monday will enable him to return for Wednesday's Game 5 back in Miami. On a more positive note for Miami, both Kyle Lowry (hamstring) and Jimmy Butler (knee) are on track to be available for Game 4.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Earns Sixth Man of Year award
GMiami Heat
May 3, 2022
Herro was named the Sixth Man of the Year in the 2021-22 NBA season, the league announced in a press release Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Herro became the first Heat player to win the award, according to Michael Scotto of USA Today, and he also became just the fifth player in NBA history to average more than 20 points per game in a season while coming off the bench. The third-year guard out of Kentucky scored 20.7 points per game this season while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 39.9 percent from deep.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Herro is heading into his sophomore NBA season with considerable momentum after a rookie campaign in which he averaged 13.5 points, 2.1 threes and 4.1 rebounds despite making only eight starts. Adding to the hype, he elevated his play when the postseason rolled around, averaging 16.0 points during the Heat's run to the NBA Finals. Whether he opens games on the court or not, it's clear that the Heat will give Herro all the playing time he can handle. The Kentucky product is a natural scorer who's sharp from both three-point range (38.9 percent) and the free-throw line (87.0 percent), which should have fantasy managers salivating at the prospect of increased opportunity. His fantasy value is capped to some degree by his relative lack of secondary stats outside the shooting categories, but at just 20 years old, Herro has plenty of room to grow his game. Expect a scoring spike driven by plenty of threes, with some boards and steals as a bonus.
Herro was selected No. 13 overall in the 2019 draft after an impressive freshman season with Kentucky. He snuck into the lottery behind a strong NCAA Tournament, and he could land the starting job at shooting guard as a rookie with Miami. Herro flashed at the Las Vegas Summer League with his all-around play, averaging 19.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals in four appearances. The lanky two-guard can be impactful on both ends of the court, with his solid defense and ability to get to the rim and shoot the three-ball at a respectable clip (35.5 percent last season) on offense. The pure scorer should have no problem securing a healthy allotment of minutes in a rotation that could use help scoring outside of Jimmy Butler. He won't face much competition for playing time from the current members of the Heat backcourt outside of Dion Waiters.
