Griezmann emerged as a lethal goalscorer in his first season with Atletico Madrid, scoring 25 goals with one assist in all competitions.

The Frenchman led the club in scoring by a wide margin and and adjusted well to playing with the likes of Koke and Arda Turan. Many clubs, most notably Chelsea, have been linked with the 24-year-old, but Atletico have stated that it will take nothing short of a massive bid to pry him away from the capitol.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Griezmann took three shots and scored a pair of goals before being subbed off in the 80th minute of Saturday's 3-0 win over Elche.

The Frenchman is in the midst of a fantastic season for Atletico and has now bagged 22 goals in only 24 La Liga starts. Griezmann doesn't generate many goals for his teammates, as his one assist on the season shows, but if he continues to put them in himself at such a high rate his fantasy value will remain extremely high. Atletico will next take on Villarreal on Wednesday.

Griezmann bagged a brace during Atletico Madrid's 3-0 win over Almeria on Saturday.

Griezmann has been playing very well of late, as he's now netted four times in his last four games. He continues to start up front with Mario Mandzukic, who had one goal and two assists himself, and his 14 league goals trail only Cristiano Ronaldo (29), Lionel Messi (26) and Neymar (17).

Griezmann took two shots, with one on goal, but he failed to extend his goal streak to three during Atletico's 2-0 loss to Celta Vigo on Sunday.

Griezmann had a goal and an assist against Eibar on Jan. 31 and then netted against Real Madrid on Feb. 7 before coming up empty. He has been very strong since the end of December, and now totes 12 goals in 19 La Liga appearances this season.

Griezmann, starting in place of the suspended Mario Mandzukic, scored a hat trick during Atletico Madrid's 4-1 win over Athletic Club on Sunday.

Griezmann has mostly been used as a substitute this season, as he's stuck behind Mandzukic on the depth chart. The scoring upside is there if he can get on the field, as he scored 16 goals in 35 matches last season for Real Sociedad. However, as long as Mandzukic is healthy, it's tough to see Griezmann getting nearly enough playing time to surpass that total, despite netting six times in 16 games this term.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Griezmann came on for Mario Mandzukic in the 74th minute of Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Elche on Saturday, but he failed to take a shot for the second league match in a row.

There were high expectations for Griezmann this season after he netted 16 times in 35 matches for Real Sociedad last season, but the French striker has struggled to find consistent playing time thanks to Mario Mandzukic, and he remains a fairly limited fantasy option, as evidenced by his three goals and zero assists in 14 league appearances this term.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

After bagging a brace against Cordoba on Nov. 1, Griezmann came on as a late sub during Atletico's 2-1 loss to Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Griezmann's brace doubled his season goal-tally, as his scoring form continues to be down from last season's 16. The presence of Mario Mandzukic up front has made Griezmann's playing time pretty inconsistent, making him a tough fantasy player to depend on.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Griezmann came on for Gabi in the 56th minute and then scored in the 86th during Atletico Madrid's 3-2 Champions League loss at Olympiacos on Tuesday.

Griezmann has yet to break through into a starting role at Atletico after transferring from Real Sociedad last month. He scored 16 goals in 35 La Liga appearances last season, so it's likely only a matter of time before he earns a starting role and the goals start to come.
