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.

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.

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.

Griezmann is on the verge of completing a transfer from Real Sociedad to Atletico Madrid after the two clubs reached agreement on a €30 million fee, ESPN FC reports.

Griezmann was largely impressive for Real Sociedad last season, when he scored 16 goals to go with three assists. Ultimately, his performances earned him a World Cup call-up from France, while also drawing the attention of many Champions League clubs. Now, defending La Liga winners Atletico Madrid have activated the winger's release clause, which will see Griezmann join Diego Simeone's side to help bolster an attack that lost Diego Costa earlier this summer.

Griezmann had a goal and an assist in Real Sociedad's surprising 3-1 victory over Barcelona on Saturday.

After scoring 10 goals in 32 La Liga appearances last season, Griezmann has found the back of the net 15 times in 22 games this year. The Frenchman now trails only Cristiano Ronaldo (22) and Diego Costa (21) for most goals in league play this season.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Griezmann has seen a £12.5 transfer bid from Arsenal rejected by Real Sociedad, the Express reports.

Griezmann, a 22-year-old French winger, has played fabulously in La Liga this season, currently sitting third in the league with 12 goals, while also having two assists to his name. Further, Griezmann only trails Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi with 3.4 shot attempts per game. His potential signing with Arsenal seems like a signature Arsene Wenger move, since Griezmann is a young, talented Frenchman and fits the Gunners' need for attacking help in light of Theo Walcott's (knee) recent season-ending injury. However, after rejecting a first approach, Real Sociedad is reported to be pushing for a fee closer to Griezmann's buy-out clause of £25 million, so it remains to be seen if Arsenal is willing to increase their initial offer.

Griezmann scored in the 61st minute of Real Sociedad's 1-5 loss to Real Madrid on Saturday.

The goal was Griezmann's eighth score in Liga plays this season, with six coming in his last four appearances in league play. He is red hot right now and will look to extend his figure against Celta Vigo on November 23 after the international break.
