Jarrett Allen averaged 10.6 points, 9.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.3 blocks in 64 games for 114/95 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Allen showed a lot of promise in his rookie year only to have the wet blanket of the DeAndre Jordan signing to ruin things in fantasy land. With Jordan opting to sit out the resumption of the season, we'll see a lot more Allen at center which is a good thing for everyone.

DeAndre Jordan averaged 8.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.9 blocks on .666 shooting for 130/124 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Jordan signing with the Nets was an immediate nail in the coffin for Jarret Allen to have any chance at increasing his workload and it resulted in two mediocre fantasy seasons. The double-digit rebounds are nice, but outside of that, Jordan provided little else as the field goal percentage wasn't as good as it seemed because he only averaged 8.3 points a night. He'll sit out the resumption which is going to be a theme for older players in non-contending teams.

The Nets have re-opened their practice facility on Tuesday following the recent positive coronavirus tests for Spencer Dinwiddie and DeAndre Jordan.
Jordan won't be joining the team in the Orlando bubble, but Dinwiddie's status is still up in the air. The remaining Nets players will start to gear up for the resumption of the season, where they currently have a six-game lead over the ninth-seeded Wizards.

DeAndre Jordan has announced that he will not join the Nets when the season resumes again.
Jordan said that he knew he had COVID-19 last night, but reaffirmed with another test today. Jordan's minutes were split with Jarrett Allen, but him sitting out may actually lead to a better rotation for the Nets and it's definitely great for Allen to shine a bit more.

Nicolas Claxton underwent arthoscopic labrum repair surgery on Wednesday and will not join the Nets in Orlando when the season resumes.
Claxton is expected to make a full recovery and be ready for training camp next season. The Nets are not playing for a title this season, so it makes sense to take care of their young player so he can be ready for next season. Claxton only appeared in 15 games this season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.9 rebounds on 56 percent shooting from the field in 12.5 minutes per game. He will struggle to find consistent minutes on the Nets next season with Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan ahead of him in the rotation. Claxton is mobile for a big man and could potentially be a dynamic defender on the perimeter. He has long-term upside and should be watched from a distance in dynasty leagues. If you are rebuilding in 16-team leagues he might be worth picking up to see if he shows some flashes next season.

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.
