Block Percentage (BLK%) The Defensive Stat That Wins Championships in Fantasy Basketball

Block Percentage (BLK%) is a defensive statistic in basketball that measures the percentage of opponent two-point field goal attempts a player blocks while he is on the court. It’s calculated as follows:

BLK% = (Blocks / Opponent 2PA) * 100


  • Blocks represents the total number of blocks a player accumulates.
  • Opponent 2PA refers to the total number of opponent two-point field goal attempts while the player is on the court.

BLK% is a crucial metric in fantasy basketball because it quantifies a player’s ability to disrupt opponent shots near the basket, potentially altering the outcome of the game defensively. Players with high BLK% can significantly contribute to fantasy teams by accumulating blocks and deterring opponents from taking high-percentage shots.
