Jarrett Allen will work on extending his range to the 3-point line this summer.
Him and every other big man. Allen went 6-for-45 on 3-pointers this season, so he's got some work to do. He's a quality young player who can protect the rim, but Allen isn't quite strong enough to crash and bang with the league's true behemoths and not quite gifted enough offensively to be anything more than a threat on the roll. It's a great base from which to work, however, and it's good to know that Allen is going to be putting in the work to make himself more of a weapon as the Nets look to build on a nice campaign.

Jarrett Allen scored 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in Saturday's Game 4 loss to the Sixers.
Allen had a nice final stat line, but he was getting worked by Joel Embiid all game. He also had a costly turnover at the end of the game when Tobias Harris, Embiid and Ben Simmons trapped in on the block – Harris may have gotten away with a foul.

Jarrett Allen was quiet defensively but scored 15 points and added six boards in 21 minutes as the Nets fell 131-115 in Thursday's Game 3.
Allen was useful offensively but didn't do a whole lot to impact the game despite the absence of Joel Embiid. He hasn't been a big factor yet in the postseason and the Nets will need more from their starting center, especially if Embiid returns for Game 4.

Jarrett Allen got roughed up in Monday's Game 2 vs. the Sixers, though he did put up nine points, six rebounds, four assists and a block in 23 minutes.
Joel Embiid generally got whatever he wanted against Allen down low tonight. In the second quarter, Allen took a flagrant Embiid elbow to the jaw while drawing a charge, but he popped up quickly. He had his moments, but Allen can't hold Embiid in check on his own.

Jarrett Allen played just 10 minutes in Game 1 against the Sixers.
The Nets won, but not thanks to Allen's contributions. He picked up two fouls in the first 53 seconds, and was mostly a non-factor. Joel Embiid took Allen to town in the post and Ed Davis ended up playing 25 minutes and posted a great game. It's going to be a tough series for the second-year big man.

Jarrett Allen grabbed 14 rebounds in 22 minutes vs. the Heat in the regular season finale.
Allen produced 80 games of top-100 fantasy value this season. The numbers we care most about are his 10.9 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 59.0 percent shooting. If he can continue to increase his minutes (26.2) to closer to 30 and get his FT percentage back up around 78 percent where it was in his rookie season, Allen could easily be a top-50 player.

Jarrett Allen bounced back from Saturday's 12-minute outing with 12 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block in 28 minutes against the Pacers on Sunday.
Allen predictably rebounded from a tough matchup with spaced-out Milwaukee. He's not quite matchup-proof yet and his lack of a big step forward has been a mild letdown for fantasy owners, but Allen's still a solid middle-round producer and belongs in all lineups at all times.

Jarett Allen played only 12 minutes but was able to score 10 points and secure seven rebounds while shooting a perfect 4-for-4 from the field in Saturday night's win.
Chalk this one up to the matchup. While Allen has not been able to live up to his top 50 ADP, he has been a valued asset to the Nets and is a big part of what they do and why they are still in the hunt for a playoff spot in the East. For fantasy purposes, Allen has been struggling for some time and has been hovering around top 200 value in the past two weeks in 8/9 category leagues. The Nets have two games left in the season, so feel free to deploy him if you need help in field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks.

Jarrett Allen went a perfect 6-for-6 from the field on Wednesday vs. the Raptors and finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and one blocked shot in 27 minutes.
The near-double-double was a welcome result coming from Allen, who had a tough matchup vs. the likes of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka. He's made some solid strides in his sophomore season but clearly has more room to grow. Allen is on track to finish 2018-19 just outside the top-80 in 9-cat and could be a consistent top-75 player next season.

Jarrett Allen narrowly missed a double-double against the Bucks on Monday, scoring 10 points with nine rebounds to go with two assists, a steal and two blocks.
He went 4-for-7 from the floor in 27 minutes of action and while his ceiling wasn't touched this season, he still remains a top-80 asset with major dynasty league appeal.

Jarrett Allen scored 10 points on 2-of-3 shooting while adding seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Saturday.
Allen is currently a top-80 player this season with averages of 11.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.5 blocks on 58.7 percent shooting from the field. He's been one of the most consistent options in the Nets this season despite his struggles in some games against All Star centers.

Jarrett Allen was a no-show in Thursday's loss to the Sixers, playing nine minutes with four points and four rebounds.
For all the promise that Allen holds, he's simply mincemeat for true old school centers. Unfortunately for him, Joel Embiid and Boban Marjanovic are basically impossible matchups and the Nets couldn't go back to Allen at all in the second half. He wasn't the only starter to struggle, as Rodions Kurucs went scoreless in 23 minutes while DeMarre Carroll had a 3-pointer and a block in 23 minutes of his own.

Jarrett Allen scored 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding eight rebounds and two assists on Monday.
Allen had a tough time going up against Jusuf Nurkic and it showed on the box score. When he wasn't being bullied down low, Damian Lillard was constantly attacking him in the paint which led to him fouling out in overtime. Considering his struggles tonight, the fantasy line was still solid.
March 17, 2019, 12:38 amJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen scored four points in 21 minutes on Saturday night but salvaged his line with five rebounds, two steals and four blocks.
Allen's settled into comfortable top-80 value, give or take a few spots, but he's sitting in the top-50 in 9-cat leagues over the last two weeks. That's being buoyed by a .793 mark from the field but Allen will still be a plus shooter even when he reverts to his norm. As long as the blocks are there his floor is safe.
March 11, 2019, 10:07 pmJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen scored 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting while adding eight boards, a steal and two blocks on Monday.
Allen is finally starting to grab boards, averaging 10.3 in the past three games and tallying at least one block in each of those contests. He might be hitting his stride at the perfect time.
