Few positive signs emerging for Mario Chalmers
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(2/4/15) Heat guard Mario Chalmers got off to a strong start to the season, averaging 14.3 points per game on 45.6 percent shooting in the month of November. He has fallen apart since, and Fantasy owners have to wonder if he is even worth a roster spot at this point.
Chalmers had arguably the best stretch of his career from mid- to late-November, averaging 20.0 points and 7.0 assists over a six-game stretch. However, that stretch came to an end on Nov. 25 with a 4-for-17 performance against the Warriors, and he hasn't been able to find his show since. In 34 games since, Chalmers is still averaging 30.8 minutes per game, but is putting up just 8.9 points and 4.0 assists, while shooting just 35.8 percent from the field.
Chalmers has seemed more comfortable with the ball in his hands this season, and has salvaged at least something from his slump by continuing to get to the free-throw line. However, he has scored just 15 points in three games since Dwyane Wade's latest injury, and it's hard to see him turning it around. His minutes and shots have been inconsistent, and Chalmers is no longer a must-own Fantasy option. With how many guards are available in today's league, you probably don't want to rely on him as one of the first five guards on your depth chart at this point.
|Ignoring a disastrous performance in the playoffs, Mario Chalmers actually put together one of his finest season to date in 2013-14. Chalmers averaged 9.8 points and 4.9 assists per game, his best totals since he was a rookie in 2008-09. Though the Heat enter this season with three point guards on the roster, Chalmers is likely the best of the bunch, and should open the season as the starter. With the departure of LeBron James, Chalmers will likely be asked to take on a bigger playmaking role, and that could be enough to push him into the discussion as a starting Fantasy option. He will be worth a look in the later rounds on Draft Day in all formats.
