2015-16

A serious groin injury restricted DeRozan to a career-low 60 games, but when he was on the court, he proved his 2013-14 breakout season was no fluke, averaging 20.1 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.4 three-pointers while shooting 41 percent from the floor and 83 percent from the free-throw line. The boards and steals were both career highs, but the field goal percentage was a career low as he continued to settle for too many low-efficiency mid-range jumpers despite his skill at drawing contact and fouls. DeRozan has developed into one of the league's better volume scorers, but there are questions among the Raptors' fan base and possibly the front office as to whether the team can make a deep postseason run with him as a focal point of the offense. His current contract expires after this season, and although he holds a $9.5 million player option for 2016-17, he's unlikely to exercise it given the massive rise in salaries that will accompany the new TV deal. Whether DeRozan responds to his potential free-agent status by chucking up more bricks or looking to improve the team's efficiency with an extra pass will probably go a long way towards determining whether he'll be back in Toronto next year.

2014-15

2013-14 was a coming out party for DeRozan, who emerged as a leader and impact player for the surprisingly postseason-bound Raptors. Over 79 games played, the fifth-year shooting guard averaged career highs in points (22.7), rebounds (4.3), assists (4.0), steals (1.1), three-pointers (0.8), minutes (38), and makes from the free-throw line (shooting 82 percent on an impressive 8.0 attempts per game, good for seventh in the NBA). He shot 43 percent from the floor and 31 percent from beyond the arc. DeRozan's ferocious work ethic and intensity at both ends of the court have become not just the defining characteristics of his own game but of the whole Toronto organization, and at 25 years old, it's entirely possible that he still has some growth left in his numbers, particularly as he continues to improve his long-distance shooting. He was rewarded for his efforts with his first All-Star appearance last season and earned a spot on Team USA's World Cup squad. As Toronto's roster matures around him, a deeper playoff run and more personal accolades seem within his grasp. Don't write DeRozan, or the Raptors, off as flukes.

2013-14

With Andrea Bargnani shuttling in and out of the lineup last season with an elbow injury, DeRozan became the Raptors' de facto No. 1 option in the first half, averaging 17.4 points per game on 44 percent shooting. That sort of production didn't deviate much from what we've seen from DeRozan in the past, but after the arrival of Rudy Gay via trade on February 1, DeRozan seemed to make tangible improvements in his game. With opposing defenses often deploying their most talented perimeter defenders on Gay, DeRozan actually raised his scoring output to 19.0 points per game on 45 percent shooting after January, despite no longer being the Raptors' No. 1 offensive option. Always an excellent finisher, perhaps the most encouraging development was DeRozan's improved accuracy from three-point range. Though he finished the season with an ugly 28 percent mark from three-point range Ė still a career-best Ė DeRozan seemed to find his stroke down the stretch, knocking down 9-of-18 threes in April and shooting 54 percent from the field overall. DeRozan has spent all offseason working to develop further accuracy from three, and while he remains unlikely to ever become a prolific marksman from deep, any sort of improvement would help diversify his game. Considering DeRozan offers only modest production in the other counting stats categories, an uptick his three-point field goals may be his easiest path to climbing upward in the fantasy ranks among shooting guards.

2012-13

DeRozan's development plateaued last season, although his late-season struggles can be tied directly to the extra defensive attention he received in the wake of Bargnani's injury. At this point in his career he's an inefficient volume scorer and highlight-reel dunker, nothing more, and as the Raptors continue to upgrade the talent level around him it would be easy to see him get left behind. Unless he starts to add some secondary skills to his arsenal, this could be his last season in a Raptors uniform.

2011-12

With teammate Andrea Bargnani failing to reach the heights for which the Raptors had hoped, their focus has since turned to building a team around DeRozanís budding talents. In 26 games after the All-Star break last season, DeRozan averaged 19.9 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.1 three-pointers, 1.2 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.9 turnovers in 35 minutes, so he still has a way to go. His new coach, Dwayne Casey, isnít afraid to play his star players upwards of 40 minutes per game, so beyond DeRozanís expected development, there should be more opportunities for him to fill up the box score. DeRozanís persistence in taking the ball hard to the hoop will keep him going to the line and make him a consistent scorer. While he tried to extend his shooting beyond the three-point arc last season, he was unsuccessful in limited attempts. DeRozanís ability to score nearly 20 points per game makes him a Corey Maggette-esque fantasy option, but if he shows heís developed a three-point shot in training camp, be sure to bump him even higher on your draft boards.

2010-11

In his rookie season, DeRozan wasn't any sort of rosterable player, really only coming to close to relevance-even on a per-minute basis-with his shooting percentage of 49.8%. That's a good number, but not enough to merit one of your draft picks this season. Still, keep him on your radar: DeRozan only just turned 21 before the season and figures to see decent minutes at the three with Hedo Turkoglu's departure this offseason.

2009-10

The Raptors drafted DeRozan to fill their glaring needs for athleticism and offense off the wing, but he isn't likely to be ready for a regular spot after spending just one year in college. With Chris Bosh, Hedo Turkoglu and Andrea Bargnani being the focal points of the offense the Raptors will want DeRozan, or whoever gets the minutes at the two, to focus more on defense than on filling up the basket so even if the rookie wins the starting job his fantasy value will be limited.
