If you stacked the Miami Heat on Tuesday night vs. the Atlanta Hawks, congrats! Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo both posted massive triple-doubles in the OT win over Atlanta. Butler finished with 59.5 fantasy points, while Adebayo collected 65.25 to lead all scorers.

Butler ($9,100) finished with 20 points, 18 boards and 10 assists and Bam ($8,200) threw up 30 points with 11 rebounds and 11 assists, but they weren’t the only ones who went bonkers. Duncan Robinson ($4,500) and Kendrick Nunn ($5,400) both went over 50 DKFP and 30 points! Robinson and Nunn combined for 70 points; Duncan had 34 points, including 10 three-pointers, while Nunn dropped 36 points with six boards and four dimes in the win.

If you decided to stack those four players alone, the output was massive, 228 fantasy points to be exact. That number is good to cash on some nights ... let alone make up four players’ worth of DKFP.

Right now in the $10 entry BIG JAM, $400K prize pool GPP on DraftKings, the leading score is sitting just under 400 points at 384 to username peckers15. He had all four of the Heat players who went off, plus Davis Bertans, who went for over 50 DKFP for the Wizards against the Hornets. Butler and Nunn were both over 30% owned in the contest, but Bam and Robinson were under 20%; Adebayo was at 19.6% and Robinson was under 10%.

If we hop over to the high pop $3,180 entry $300K prize pool RAINMAKER contest, we see that most of the sharps didn’t have the Heat stack or all four players in their lineups. The top score right now is 300.5 DKFP to username CoachS111, who had Bam, Nunn and Butler, but not Robinson or Bertans. It’s interesting none of the big fish decided to stack the Heat-Hawks game considering ownership, though it is a high entry, so this is more cash lineups than anything.
