2016-17

Drummond has been among the most polarizing players in fantasy basketball over the past few years, and he took that reputation to another level last season. The fourth-year center got off to a torrid start, averaging a mind-boggling 18.3 points and 16.1 rebounds per game over the first two months of the season, virtually locking up his first career All-Star bid. While those numbers would wane a bit as the season progressed, Drummond still averaged a career-best 16.2 points per game while leading the league in rebounding (14.8 per game) for the first time. Now for the bad news: of the more than 300 players who attempted at least 15 free throws last season, Drummond ranked dead last in free-throw percentage, sinking to a career-low 35.5 percent on more than seven attempts per game. While the rebounding numbers were obviously elite -- Drummond also added 1.4 blocks and a career-high 1.5 steals per game -- such a dreadful free-throw percentage on a relatively high volume of attempts yet again rendered Drummond a frustrating commodity in rotisserie leagues. His 52.1 percent mark from the field, on the low end for centers, was another difficult pill to swallow. As he enters his age-23 season, there's little reason to believe Drummond's counting stats will drop off, and he remains an elite player in points leagues. In roto formats, however, Drummond comes at an inherent discount, barring what would be an unexpected and fairly unprecedented improvement at the charity stripe.

2015-16

Drummond is entering his fourth season in the NBA after averaging 13.8 points, 13.5 rebounds, 0.7 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.9 blocks in 31 minutes per game through 82 games last season. While he made jumps in his per-minute numbers last season, Drummond played nearly two less minutes per game (2013-14: 32.3 minutes, 2014-15: 30.5 minutes) in his first season under coach Stan Van Gundy. Some people will take that dip in minutes as a sign of Van Gundy limiting the big man's minutes, but Drummond's shorter mintues were probably more related to the fact that Van Gundy tried desperately to keep Drummond and Greg Monroe on the court separately. Now, with Monroe signed to a three-year deal with the Bucks, Drummond should have a wide birth of mintues available in the Pistons frontcourt. Through 11 games playing without Monroe last season, Drummond averaged 16.9 points, 14.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.1 steals, and 2.4 blocks in 34 minutes per game while shooting 54 percent from the field and 46 percent from the line. Those numbers were good for an eight-category ranking of 43rd last season. In fantasy, it's important to note that players like Drummond, who shoot a lot of free throws at a terrible clip, are essentially poison pills in rotisserie leagues due to how negatively they impact the free-throw percentage category. However, in head-to-head leagues where the percentages only account for a one-week sample size, the resetting of stats from week to week makes players like Drummond much more valuable. In the course of a week, Drummond will almost assuredly get his average number of counting stats (points, rebounds, assists, steals, blocks, and three-pointers) as long as he gets his normal minutes, but there's no telling what percentage a player will shoot from week to week. In other words: draft Drummond with abandon in h-2-h leagues, but avoid him like the plague in rotisserie leagues that use free-throw percentage as a stat.

2014-15

Drummond is entering his third season in the NBA. In his sophomore campaign, Drummond averaged 13.5 points, 13.2 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.6 blocks in 32 minutes per game while playing 81 out of 82 contests. He shot 62 percent from the field on 9.5 attempts per game and 42 percent from the free-throw line on 4.0 attempts per game. Drummond improved his production in every category except blocks last season, and his player efficiency rating (PER) of 22.65 was the 13th best in the NBA. He also lead the league in total offensive rebounds (440), which was 109 more offensive rebounds than DeAndre Jordan, who was second in the league in total offensive rebounds and played one more game than Drummond. His most common comparison for a career trajectory in the NBA has been Dwight Howard, so the addition of Howard's former head coach Stan Van Gundy as the Pistons' coach and president could lead to Drummond taking more leaps in his development this season. Drummond's poor free-throw shooting makes him a liability in rotisserie leagues, but his relatively low number of attempts from the free-throw line limits the damage he can do in that category. On the flip side, Drummond's dominance in counting stats (points, rebounds, steals, blocks) make him one of best centers in head-to-head leagues, and his field-goal percentage (62 percent) was the second best in the league behind Jordan, which plays well in any format.

2013-14

When healthy, Drummond was one of the more impressive rookies of the 2012 Draft Class. He averaged 7.9 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.0 steal while playing primarily as a reserve and seeing just 21 minutes per game. While those numbers aren't altogether eye-popping, Drummond's strong finish as a part of the starting five down the stretch, and his stellar per-36 averages (13.8 points, 13.2 rebounds, 2.8 blocks, 1.7 steals) hint at his vast potential. Despite the promise Drummond has flashed, his immediate fantasy impact could be quelled some by his struggles at the charity stripe. Drummond shot a horrendous 37 percent from the line in his rookie campaign, and freebies were an issue during his lone season at UCONN, too. But even with the free-throw risk factored in, Drummond remains one of the more likely breakout candidates this season. The 20-year-old has a raw but developing offensive game, superior athleticism for a player his size and game-changing ability on the defensive end of the court. Plus, he's expected to be cemented into the Pistons' starting center job for the entire season. Don't be afraid to reach a round or two early for Drummond – plenty of other owners will likely be planning the same.

2012-13

Once believed to be a potential No. 1 over pick, Drummond’s stock dropped after a up-and-down freshman campaign at UConn. As a result, he dropped to the ninth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft where Detroit happily selected him. At 7-0, 279, Drummond has the body of a true NBA center. He’s also an absolute beast on the defensive end of the court, racking up 2.7 blocks per game during his lone season in college. But the one area where Drummond needs to refine his skills is on offense. The 19-year-old center shot just 29.5 percent from the free-throw line while having troubles establishing any sort of back-to-the-basket post-up game last year. He lacks a go-to post move and the necessary footwork to thrive at the NBA level immediately, but Drummond is expected to get better in those areas, and as the second youngest player in his draft class he has plenty of time to figure things out. The Pistons figure to patient with Drummond, but if he can take strides in his offensive development, he could see enough run to be a factor in blocks and rebounds by the All-Star break.
