Mario Chalmers started at point guard on Thursday but hit just 2-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, six assists and a steal.
Norris Cole played 34 minutes off the bench but wasn't much better, finishing with eight points, five assists and a steal on 2-of-7 shooting. Chalmers is the guy you want to own out of these two, but he's proven to be a much more effective player when Dwyane Wade is in street clothes, which wasn't the case tonight. Dec 25 - 8:28 PM

Mario Chalmers played 39 minutes on Tuesday despite Dwyane Wade (knee) returning to the starting lineup, scoring 11 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and four turnovers.

He shot 4-of-8 from the field with one 3-pointer and tonight's performance was good enough for most fantasy owners. Chalmers has been struggling over the past two weeks, shooting 34.9 percent from the field and 73.3 percent at the FT line. The starting PG job is his to lose, making him worth a 'hold' recommendation in leagues with 12 or more teams.
Dec 24 - 12:02 AM

Mario Chalmers scored 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds and five assists in Friday's loss.

Chalmers started tonight and whether he starts or not he's worth holding for his immense upside if Dwyane Wade and others get hurt, which has proven to be a pretty regular thing in Miami this season.
Dec 20 - 1:36 AM

Mario Chalmers will start at point guard on Friday night against the Wizards.

The move is a little overdue with Norris Cole not playing well. Chalmers is going to do a lot of work as a shooter as Dwyane Wade handles the ball, but his upside in treys and steals will make him worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 7:16 PM

Mario Chalmers came off the bench for 11 points, one rebound, zero assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 3-of-13 shooting in 32 minutes on Wednesday.

Chalmers has been quiet since the return of Dwyane Wade, but Norris Cole played just 17 minutes tonight and had one point and zero assists. If Chalmers can reclaim the starting job from Cole, which could be coming, he'll be a must-own player going forward. Just hang onto him for now, if you own him.
Dec 18 - 1:12 AM

Mario Chalmers played well in Tuesday's win against the Nets, scoring 10 points to go with seven boards, five assists and four steals in 31 minutes.

Chalmers is tough to own when Dwyane Wade is active, but tonight was an exception. Mario was excellent on both ends of the floor and the four steals illustrates why he is so valuable in fantasy. He also shot 6-of-6 from the free throw line on the night, despite turning the ball over three times. He should be owned in all leagues, and will become a must-start player if Norris Cole goes down with an injury.
Dec 17 - 12:01 AM

Mario Chalmers hit just 1-of-7 shots (including a three) for four points, three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

We know how Dwyane Wade essentially ruins things for Chalmers, but he has been worth owning on the whole this year and his upside when Wade goes out is worth the roster slot. At least for now.
Dec 13 - 3:31 AM

Mario Chalmers started again on Friday against the Bucks, scoring nine points on 2-of-9 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, six assists and six steals.

Norris Cole (flu) was out again and we're not sure why Chalmers isn't guaranteed starter's minutes and plenty of touches but that's not quite the case. He's been very good in fantasy leagues lately and has been a top 60-80 play on the year.
Dec 6 - 2:22 AM

Mario Chalmers started for Norris Cole (illness) on Wednesday and got loose for 19 points, five rebounds, 11 assists, a steal and a block on 6-of-8 shooting.

Why he's not starting over Cole is a mystery and he played very well while filling in for Dwyane Wade last week. He's worth hanging onto and will become a must-own player if he steals Cole's job, or when Wade goes down again.
Dec 4 - 12:31 AM

Mario Chalmers will start in place of Norris Cole (illness) on Wednesday against the Hawks.

It'll be his first start next to Dwyane Wade, so his previous starts are going to be a bit misleading. Chalmers was terrific the last time he had to start, but Wade and Chris Bosh will likely have the ball a lot on offense. Chalmers is still a great player to start tonight in a favorable matchup. Shabazz Napier should get some extra run, too.
Dec 3 - 5:55 PM

Mario Chalmers was quiet in Monday's blowout loss, scoring 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes.

Chalmers takes a huge hit with Dwyane Wade in the lineup and we're not entirely sure why Norris Cole (seven points, zero assists) and Shabazz Napier (six points, two assists) have moved him off the point -- but that's the way Spo is rolling these days. Chalmers has enough upside to see this out a little bit more and he is a fine stash given Wade's injury risk, but he might ride your bench a little unless he gets moved back to the point.
Dec 1 - 10:32 PM

Mario Chalmers finished Sunday's road victory with just three points, two boards, two assists and three turnovers in 24 minutes off Miami's bench.

Dwyane Wade's return thrust Chalmers back into a reserve role despite his terrific play during Wade's seven-game absence, though Chalmers didn't help his case by racking up five personal fouls. It's far from ideal, but Chalmers' proven value for the Heat should prevent his minutes from dropping below the 30-per-game mark. Fantasy owners should hang onto him and see how he fares as the Heat's sixth-man.
Nov 30 - 10:16 PM

Mario Chalmers will shift back to the bench on Sunday as Dwyane Wade (hamstring) returns to the starting lineup.

Owners shouldn't panic, as the Heat will definitely find minutes for him after his strong showing while Wade was out. Chalmers should still be owned in almost all leagues for his ability to rack up 3-pointers, assists and steals, so deploy him as usual but expect a slight dip in production.
Nov 30 - 12:31 PM

Mario Chalmers left Wednesday's practice due to an illness.

He's been on fire and has been a daily fantasy beast. The Heat are off until Sunday at New York, so we're guessing Chalmers will be ready to go by then.
Nov 26 - 12:37 PM

Mario Chalmers started out hot on Tuesday, but shot 0-of-8 after the first quarter to finish with 14 points, two 3-pointers, four assists, four steals and one blocks.

Chalmers shot 4-of-17 overall but he turned the ball over just once in 37 minutes. He had the unenviable task of slowing down Stephen Curry defensively, which he failed to do as Curry dropped 40 points in the Warriors' road win. The Heat are just 4-5 in their home games, but they're still above .500 with an 8-7 record.
