Chris Bosh PF/C MIA 2 Days
Bosh scored 32 points (13-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds in the win over Orlando on Saturday.
After a slight dip in production earlier in the week, including the horrible 2-of-17 game against the Bucks, Bosh has scored 60 points in his last two games. He is going to get plenty of opportunities as the top option for the Heat in most games.

Bosh finished the night with 15 points (5-11FG, 1-2 3PT, 4-4FT), nine rebounds, one assist, and one steal.
The Heat's big man had struggled early on, going 3-9 from the field before being benched for receiving his fifth foul. However, he did help seal the victory against the Nets later on in the fourth quarter. Hopefully this marks a turning point for Bosh moving forward, but he has been able to consistently produce his entire career. With teammates Wade (hamstring), Deng (wrist), and McRoberts (toe), all still out, Bosh will have the most opportunities to produce for the Heat. If his fantasy value has not been clearly defined yet, let the injuries to his teammates serve as a reminder.

Bosh scored just nine points (3-13 FG, 1-3 3P, 2-3 FT) with three assists, three steals, two rebounds and a block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
After scoring 20 or more points in seven straight games to begin the season, Bosh was probably due for an off night. He remains the focal point of the Heat's offense though, and should bounce back quickly.

Bosh scored 23 points (7-18 FG, 1-6 3P, 8-8 FT) with 13 rebounds in 38 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.
He and Dwayne Wade did their jobs, scoring a combined 48 points, but no other Heat player managed to score in double digits. Now required to be more than just a supporting player for LeBron James, Bosh seems headed for the kind of 20 PPG-10 RPG averages he routinely put up in Toronto.

Bosh led his team in minutes, points and tied for the lead in rebounds. He finished Sunday's contest with 21 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.
Bosh has returned first round value since starting the season and it's not impossible to believe he can't keep this pace up. Since his Toronto days he's now added a long range game to his arsenal, while the absence of LeBron James has returned him to a feature role. With the team financially locked with Bosh on a long term deal, and Dwyane Wade not getting any younger, look for Coach Erik Spoelstra to give Bosh every opportunity to thrive this season.

Bosh decimated the 76er defense for 30 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 10-11 FT) with eight boards, four assists, and two steals in 33 minutes in the win on Saturday.
Bosh is taking his role as the go-to scorer for the Heat seriously. He has scored 56 points in the first two games and has hit five 3-pointers. The competition will be better than Philly in most games, but Bosh is looking primed for an excellent season.

Bosh scored 26 points (9-18 FG, 3-4 3P, 5-5 FT) with 15 rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
As expected, Bosh emerged from LeBron's shadow and produced some big numbers as the Heat's main option on offense. He may not be able to lead the club to another title, but Bosh should make his fantasy owners very happy this season.

Bosh has been working in the post this offseason for the first time in Miami, the Sun Sentinel reports.
With Lebron James no longer with the Heat, there should be some room in the paint, and Bosh could be the main beneficiary statistically as an inside out threat. Expect Bosh's three point attempts to decrease, but he should see a nice bump in free throws, points, and rebounds. He probably won't return to his Toronto numbers of 24 points and 10.8 rebounds per game, but Bosh will be among the main offense options for the Heat, and will carry significantly more fantasy value than last season.

Heat sign F/C Chris Bosh.
He's been out of the country for most of the month, which explains why he hasn't signed his contract. Bosh's deal is reportedly $118 million over five years and he'll enter the season with more offensive responsibility. He already had second-round fantasy value last season due to a career high in effective field goal percentage, so the extra shots aren't going to boost his fantasy value too much.

Chris Bosh believes that even without LeBron James, Miami can still compete for a championship.
"I think right now we have the correct infrastructure to compete for a championship," Bosh said. "We have to get much better at certain positions, and there's a bunch of things that have to continue to happen. But you know a team like the Spurs, they had a lot of guys that people underestimate, but as a team, they were outstanding." Miami's new Big Three of Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, and Chris Bosh isn't quite as intimidating as the one that included LeBron James, but they will still be able to compete at a high level. Chris Bosh will now be a primary scorer for Miami, and he will look to reestablish himself as an elite talent in the league after being a third-wheel the past four years.
