RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Blake saw an increase in minutes, points, rebounds, and assists last year compared to the 2011-12 season. With Nash's health a concern to begin the season, Blake has the potential to see decent minutes. Blake has failed to take advantage of this opportunity, however, as he has struggled significantly with his shot. If he can turn his shooting woes around, he has the chance to see minutes on a nightly basis since Nash will more than likely need some rest over the course of the season. If he continues to struggle, Jordan Farmar may start to take some of his minutes.

2012-13

He figures to be the favorite heading into camp to backup Steve Nash at the one, a role that he should thrive in. At times last season Blake was asked to do a little too much, especially when Derek Fisher was still on the team. He profiles much better as a reserve that can come in and run the offense and hit corner threes. Blakeís best fantasy nights will be those where heís running the offense late in a lopsided victory. His value is very limited now that Nash is in town.

2011-12

Blake has had decent years in the past, but last year was not one of them. He struggled to fit into the triangle offense, averaging just four points and 2.2 assists per game last year. There's room for improvement but not enough to make Blake a viable fantasy option in most leagues.

2010-11

Blake inked a four-year deal with the Lakers this offseason. He'll backup incumbent starter Derek Fisher at point guard. Blake's production won't match what he was able to do as a starter with the Blazers, but he'll still be a decent source of 3-pointers and assists in deeper formats.

2009-10

The 2008-09 season was a banner year for Blake. He averaged career-highs in points (11.0) and threes (2.0) while dishing out five assists per game. But those numbers were due, in part, to of a lack of depth behind him at point guard, and that'll change this year with the addition of Andre Miller. Blake will still provide plenty of value for the Blazers with his heady point guard play and underrated defense, but his minutes will be too limited to make another surprise splash in fantasy.

2008-09

Blake is entering the final year of his contract and doesnít have a future beyond this season with the Blazers, but that doesnít mean he wonít serve a purpose. Portland coach Nate McMillan has already endorsed him as the starting point guard, but we donít see Blake getting 30-plus minutes a night. First, McMillan will have to get creative to find minutes for Rudy Fernandez. That means having Brandon Roy play some point guard. Even with Blake on the court last year, Roy was often the initiator on offense. And rookie phenom Jerryd Bayless will also be part of the mix at the one. It looks like Blake will have to find his production in 20-25 minutes a night, which isnít enough to be a starting fantasy point guard.

2007-08

Blake started last year playing sparingly for the Bucks and ended up doubling his playing time in Denver. His numbers doubled to 8.3 points and 6.6 assists per game, but he was less effective in the playoffs, averaging just 7.3 points and 4.6 assists per game in 36 minutes. Blake is a good playmaker but a liability on the defensive end because of his lack of size and strength. He's penciled in as the starter at point guard, though Jarrett Jack and Brandon Roy will take some time away from him. Blake's fantasy value is exclusively for assists in deeper leagues.

2005-06

Signed by the Blazers as a free agent from the Wizards. Blake is a good three-point shooter, but probably will not get much get playing time with the Blazers who are top heavy with point guards in Sebastian Telfair, former Wizards and Maryland teammate Juan Dixon and Jarrett Jack, whom they picked up in the draft. But Portland is high on him and sees him as a steal in the free-agent market.

2004-05

Blake, who underwent successful offseason surgery to remove a chipped bone in his right ankle, could miss over a month of the regular season. Once the second-year player, who is the closest thing the team has to a pure point guard, returns, look for him to slide back into his backup role. In 2003-04, Blake averaged 5.9 points and 2.8 assists per game, and sported a not-so-nifty shooting percentage of .386, which he hopes to improve upon this season.

2003-04

Blake, who was the Wizards' second round pick in June's draft, will provide the team with depth at point guard. He'll be reunited with Juan Dixon, his backcourt mate when Maryland won the NCAA championship in 2002, but don't expect them to be cutting down any nets anytime soon.
