2015-16

After another monster year in 2014-15, Griffin looks poised to continue to be a high-level fantasy asset in his sixth NBA season. The 26-year-old All-Star was held to just 67 games played last season by a staph infection on his elbow, but the normally healthy Griffin has played 80 or more games in three of the last five seasons. Despite the elbow injury, Griffin averaged 21.9 points and 7.6 rebounds in 35 minutes per game last year. Perhaps the most noteworthy improvement Griffin made to his game was his passing, posting a career best 5.3 assists per game, a significant increase from the 3.9 apg he averaged the previous year. Long touted for his explosive athleticism, Griffin has added versatility to his game in recent years. His free-throw percentage went up slightly for the third consecutive season, as he hit a respectable 73 percent of his shots from the line. Griffin has also focused on expanding his range, which may explain his shooting percentage declining each of the past three seasons from 55 percent in 2011-12 to 50 percent in 2014-15. While his shot-blocking ability leaves more to be desired (0.5 blocks per game last season), Griffin makes up for it with solid contributions across the remaining categories. The Clippers' acquisition of forward Josh Smith should have little impact on Griffin's playing time, as coach Doc Rivers has a history of allotting big minutes to his stars. Griffin should remain one of the best fantasy options in all leagues.

2014-15

Griffin, now 25 years old, has taken huge steps in his all-around game on the real-life basketball court but has seen relatively small gains on the fantasy side of things. Last season, he averaged 24.1 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 36 minutes per game through 80 games played. His free-throw percentage climbed to a respectable 72 percent last season (up from 66% in 2012-13), and there's still upside for him to get better across the board as he begins to take on more responsibility initiating the offense from the post. The one foible with Griffin is that he doesn't block many shots (0.6 blocks per game last season), and given his elite athleticism, that's somewhat disappointing. Griffin's growth at the free-throw line last season significantly improves his value in rotisserie leagues, and there's an argument that he's undervalued in head-to-head leagues, where elite counting stats hold a greater weight. He's also one of the top players in most points leagues.

2013-14

The story of Griffin's declining numbers is no secret to anyone. After averaging 22.5 points and 12.1 rebounds in his rookie season, Griffin averaged 20.7 points and 10.9 rebounds in his sophomore campaign of 2011-12, and just 18.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in the 2012-13 season. What many do not realize is that his minutes have taken a similar dip – from 38 minutes in his rookie season to 36 minutes, and finally 33 minutes. His percentages and production in all other categories have been rather consistent, and Griffin's outlook for the coming season will depend on the number of minutes he plays. With the Clippers' recent additions of Byron Mullens, J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, Griffin is likely to see ample space in the low and high posts, when being surrounded by three-point assassins. While Mullens may back up some of his minutes, Griffin is unlikely to see a further dip in court time due to Mullens' multi-positional ability. At just 24 years of age heading into his fourth season, Griffin has the potential to be an elite fantasy contributor, so long as he gets the minutes and improves his free-throw percentage.

2012-13

Griffin had a successful sophomore season, averaging 20.6 points and 10.8 rebounds per game--his second straight season averaging 20 points/10 rebounds. There are several things lacking in Griffin’s game. His mid-range shot is inconsistent; he’s not good when facing the basket; he doesn’t block shots; he can be a turnover machine; he’s foul prone; and his poor free-throw shooting makes him an easy target for hacking. But the dude is exciting to watch. He uses his tremendous strength and athleticism to dominate in the low post, though the finesse parts of his post game need to develop some. Despite missing the entirety of his rookie season due to knee surgery, Griffin hasn’t been a health risk, having not missed a game in two seasons. He did require arthroscopic knee surgery after suffering an injury while practicing with Team USA this summer, but he’s already back to full practices and should be fine entering the season. Griffin will easily average 20/10, and playing with Chris Paul certainly helps get him the ball in the best places to succeed. His deficiencies in free-throw shooting and turnovers severely impair his value in rotisserie leagues in a similar way to the effect Dwight Howard can have on a team, so if you’re drafting him, make sure you’re surrounding him with other players who help repair the damage he does.

2011-12

Basketball fans had to wait an extra year to see Griffin’s debut, but once he hit the hardwood, the athletically gifted power forward lived up to the hype. Griffin looked to be at full strength as he turned in one highlight reel play after another. The 22-year-old finished the season with averages of 22.5 points, 12.1 rebounds and 3.8 assists, making him one of just four players to average 20 points and 10 rebounds in 2010-11. As expected, he was the runaway Rookie of the Year. The only categories he underwhelmed in were free throw shooting (65.4), steals (0.8) and blocks (0.6). Given his freakish jumping ability and quickness, Griffin should develop a better game on the defensive side of the ball as he matures. He struggled with free throw shooting throughout his college career as well, but he showed the ability to step out and hit the occasional jump shot, so we expect his work at the charity stripe to improve, too. Griffin is an absolute freak athletically with a high basketball IQ who never takes a play off. He’s primed to become an elite fantasy option for years to come.

2010-11

Everything was set up perfectly for Blake Griffin. The top overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft, Griffin was penciled in as the starting power forward on a talented Clipper team featuring Baron Davis, Marcus Camby and promising youngsters like Eric Gordon. But a seemingly-minor knee injury in training camp wound up costing Griffin the entire 2009-10 season; he'll make his NBA debut a year later than anticipated. If he were simply a rookie coming out of the draft – and not one coming off a broken kneecap and year-long absence – Griffin would rate higher on draft boards, on the strength of his dominant run with the Oklahoma Sooners. But it remains to be seen how this can't miss prospect will progress at the next level, or if the injury will rob him of the athleticism and physicality that made him a "can't miss" in the first place.

2009-10

The Clippers’ selection of Griffin with the first overall pick of the draft was a no-brainer. Griffin averaged 22.7 points, 14.4 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.2 blocks last year for Oklahoma, while exhibiting toughness, athleticism and poise. His free-throw shooting is a major concern – he shot just 59 percent from the line last season. Considering he has the skills to draw plenty of fouls, the volume of attempts could be a killer in that category. Still, there’s plenty to like when it comes to Griffin, who is fantastic on the glass and should immediately be a threat to score 15-18 points per game as a rookie. Los Angeles was loaded in the frontcourt, but Griffin was too good to pass up, and the team was able to unload Zach Randolph during the offseason, clearing some space for the rookie. Don’t be surprised if Griffin is the team’s starter at power forward on opening night. Griffin took home MVP honors at the Vegas Summer League, but he also strained his right shoulder, which sidelined him for more than a month. The injury didn’t require surgery, and he’s expected to be ready for training camp.
