DeAndre Jordan moved into the starting lineup on Sunday and produced 11 points, 15 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 29 minutes.
The politicking begins, as this was Jacque Vaughn's first change as Brooklyn's new head coach. It's been reported that Jordan's playing time was an issue among some of the Nets (any guesses on who DJ's good buddies are?), so Jordan got promoted today. He should be able to flirt with middle-round value if he gets near 30 mpg going forward, while Jarrett Allen looks to be in tough. Allen had 11 points, six rebounds and a block in 19 minutes but is looking like a late-round option and glorified blocks specialist if this is his new normal.

DeAndre Jordan will get the start at center over Jarrett Allen on Sunday vs. the Bulls.
This seems to be interim coach Jacque Vaughn's first order of business as he takes over for the recently fired Kenny Atkinson. It's yet to be seen how Vaughn will distribute the minutes between the two bigs but there's a good chance this could tank Allen's value.

DeAndre Jordan double-doubled on Friday in a victory over the Spurs, going for 12 points, 10 rebounds and a dime in 22 minutes.
Jordan is ranked inside the top-120 on the season but hasn't been very productive of late, ranking outside the top-150. He's usable in categories leagues just due to his rebounding potential on a nightly basis. He also hardly ever misses a shot so his FG percentage stays quite high.

Jarrett Allen was on the bench while the Nets came back to catch the Celtics and put the game away in overtime on Tuesday providing just eight points on 3-of-8 shooting and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes.
Allen’s production has been lacking for the last month or so, coinciding with a drop in minutes. He’s fine to hold if you need the rebounds and field goal percentage he brings. However, Allen has been outside the top-165 for the last month, as his blocks have been below average among centers and his free throw percentage has dropped to punt-level territory. With Allen sitting, it was DeAndre Jordan helping with the comeback, totaling eight points (3-of-4 FGs), 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 35 minutes.

DeAndre Jordan showed up to score points and grab rebounds on Wednesday, ending with 16 points (6-8 FG), 16 rebounds and not a single additional counting stat other than a lone turnover.
Jordan doesn't always see this much action on the court, but when he does, he is a lock to get your team rebounds. It's tough to count on him for consistent numbers as he shares time with Jarrett Allen, but he's putting up top-120 value on the season.

DeAndre Jordan put up another double-double on Thursday night to finish with 14 points and 15 boards in 37 minutes.
Jordan took advantage of Jarrett Allen's sheer ineffectiveness in this game. Allen was scoreless with two boards in 13 minutes before being benched at halftime. Jordan isn't going to get this kind of run every night, but he's still a great source of rebounds at the very least.

Jarrett Allen double-doubled on Wednesday with 10 points on 3-of-6 shooting and 13 rebounds in 20 minutes.
DeAndre Jordan scored seven points with 10 rebounds in 23 minutes and has now played more minutes than Allen in four straight games. It is close to a 50-50 split in minutes for the two centers over the past two weeks and both players are ranked just outside the top-100 during that stretch with Jordan having the slight edge. Allen has the higher upside and is the preferable option, which makes him a hold in standard leagues while Jordan is better suited for 14-team leagues.

More and more lately, Jarrett Allen is doing the starting, but DeAndre Jordan has been trusted with finishing games with the Nets.
Every time he’s asked about lineups, Kenny Atkinson always dips into his cliché bag and replies it’s not about who starts but who finishes. The Nets’ coach decided to stay with DJ’s physicality for every second of the past two fourth quarters, in which the veteran piled up 14 points, 16 rebounds and a plus-15 in 24 bruising minutes. With two big teams on tap, the Raptors on Wednesday and the Sixers coming out of the break, the trend could continue. Jordan remains a nice source of rebounds and blocks while his free throw shooting has risen to a respectable 69.2 for the season.

DeAndre Jordan grabbed 19 boards in a close win over the Pacers on Monday, adding 11 points (5-of-7 FGs) and two blocks in 28 minutes.
Jordan just keeps hanging around. He's still worth a 12-team roster spot for those that need center stats. His rebounds and field goal percentage are great, and he's still providing a decent amount of blocks.

DeAndre Jordan double-doubled on Saturday with 15 points (6-of-10 from the field), 14 rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes off the bench.
Jordan outplayed Jarrett Allen (three points and six rebounds in 19 minutes) but Allen is still the center to own in Brooklyn. Jordan is a late-round option in 14-team leagues for big man stats.

Jarrett Allen scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with eight rebounds, three dimes and two blocks in 23 minutes on Monday.
Allen logged 23 minutes compared to DeAndre Jordan's 23 (eight points, nine rebounds and five assists). Jordan shouldn't be owned in standard leagues while Allen's upside will be capped as long as Jordan is soaking minutes at the center spot. It's not a great spot to be in for Allen, but he's producing enough in limited minutes to ease his owners' frustrations.

Jarrett Allen had himself a good game on Saturday night, notching 13 points on 5-of-6 FGs and 3-of-7 FTs, plus 15 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.
This is Allen's 22nd double-double this season and he's been overall a better contributor in fantasy despite his ups and downs. DeAndre Jordan came off the bench with eight points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes. Both players are worth owning, with Allen being the preferred big man to take to the fantasy playoffs.

Jarret Allen stuffed that stat sheet in Wednesday's 115-125 win over the Pistons, ending with 11 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and four blocks.
Allen and DeAndre Jordan split time at C, but Allen got the start and a slight edge in minutes ending with 28 minutes to Jordan's 21. Both had strong nights, but Jarrett Allen was more effective on offense as Jordan was held to four points with eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks of his own. Allen is a strong mid-round fantasy option at this point, and could have a promising future in dynasty leagues.

Kyrie Irving (personal) and DeAndre Jordan (finger) are not listed on the Nets injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pistons.
Irving is ready to rock after missing Sunday's game against the Knicks to grieve. He's going to be playing with a heavy heart after losing a close friend and is someone to target in DFS lineups for his ability to blow up. DeAndre Jordan may get back into the starting lineup for this one as well.

DeAndre Jordan (right middle finger dislocation) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.
With Jordan back in the lineup, Jarrett Allen will take a hit as the two will presumably return to splitting C minutes. Nicolas Claxton had seen extra run the past few games, but he will be relegated to deeper-reserve status for this one.
