Jarrett Allen needed only 26 minutes to contribute 21 points (7-for-9 shooting), 10 rebounds, two assists and a block in Wednesday's 108-113 loss to the Hornets.
This is Allen's fourth straight double-double. He is settling in and really distinguishing himself from Deandre Jordan.

Jarret Allen played well dropping 19 point, 11 rebounds and two assists on 7-of-13 shooting during Sunday's win over the Nuggets.
Allen continues to outplay DeAndre Jordan and is is the center worth owning in Brooklyn. Allen's ceiling is somewhat limited to Jordan healthy, but he should continue to see the bulk of the minutes unless going against a bigger bodied center.

Jarrett Allen had another solid outing on Friday night, totaling 14 points (7-of-10 shooting), 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in only 22 minutes of action against the Hornets.
Allen's playing time was limited because DeAndre Jordan also had a big night, collecting 16 points (6-of-7 FG, 4-of-4 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and two blocks. Both guys have been able to stick as standard-league assets this season, and while the ceilings are definitely capped the floors are also a lot higher than initially expected. Allen remains the better option thanks to his blocks and league-leading FG% but Jordan is a late-round play if you need boards and a decent percentage boost.

Jarrett Allen played well in Wednesday's win over the Hawks, finishing with 20 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks in 29 minutes.
Allen feasted on Atlanta's rough center rotation all night, and it allowed him to get a starter's worthy level of playing time, putting the DeAndre Jordan timeshare (four points and nine rebounds in 19 minutes) to the wayside for this one. The young center is just teeming with talent and could really flourish if Jordan were ever out of the picture. The Nets aren't particularly good, and if they ever take a significant dip below .500 Allen could become an intriguing guy to trade for in hopes the vets (like Jordan) get shut down towards the end of the year.

DeAndre Jordan was active in 24 minutes on Sunday, going 7-of-8 from the field for 15 points, eight rebounds and a steal.
Jordan got the better of Jarrett Allen today, as the youngster could only produce four points and 12 rebounds in his own 24 minutes. Allen's shot-blocking makes him the preferred play of the two but Jordan has surprisingly delivered top-120/105 value so far this year. If you need rebounds and a boost to your field goal percentage, DJ's your guy.

Jarrett Allen's Friday matinee was a productive one vs. the Celtics with 14 points, 11 rebounds, a steal and a block.
DeAndre Jordan returned for 23 minutes of action tonight as well, going for eight points, 11 rebounds, one steal and one block. With Jordan active, Allen was only able to pick up 25 minutes, but he made the most of the opportunity. Allen also went 0-for-2 from the free-throw line today, which has been a constant issue this season.

Jarrett Allen delivered a mixed bag on Wednesday, producing 17 points (6-of-8 shooting) with 14 rebounds, three assists and one block.
The only real smear on his otherwise solid night was his 5-for-12 shooting at the free throw line. Overall, Allen has been trending up, so consider this as a small speed bump in his road to an improving season.

DeAndre Jordan has been downgraded to out for Wednesday's contest against the Celtics due to left ankle soreness.
This will be DeAndre's second consecutive missed game due to his recent ailment. Jarrett Allen will see more minutes than usual during Wednesday's game as a result and could be an intriguing DFS play.

DeAndre Jordan (left ankle soreness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.
Jarrett Allen had a monster game against the Cavs on Monday without Jordan, going for 22 points, 21 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks on 9-of-10 shooting from the field in 34 minutes of action. If Jordan can't play again, Allen will be in line for another big game.

Jarrett Allen was fantastic in Monday's 108-106 win over the Cavs, compiling 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting with 21 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks.
DeAndre Jordan missed this game due to ankle soreness, so Allen feasted on a play-all-you-can buffet. He played all he could (34 minutes) and delivered in spades. The timeshare threat from Jordan has become less and less worrisome over the course of the early season, pointing to Allen being able to take a leap forward in 2019-20.

DeAndre Jordan has been ruled out for Monday's game with left ankle soreness.
Despite averaging only 21 minutes per game, Jordan dealt with a left ankle sprain earlier in the season as well. Jarrett Allen should get all the court time he can handle for now.

Jarrett Allen played well on Sunday as he put up 18 points and 10 rebounds in a 103-101 win over the Knicks.
Allen has locked up the top center spot for the Nets and has been a double-double machine as of late. He shot 5-of-9 from the field and 8-of-11 from the stripe. Allen is a top-50 value over the last two weeks, so his buy-low window is officially closed.

Jarrett Allen (right ankle sprain) is a go for the Nets' game against the Kings on Saturday.
Allen had a huge performance on Wednesday in just 27 minutes of action against the Hornets. Hopefully, he can keep it rolling as he has now had a double-double in three out of his last four games. This is probably your last chance to buy-low on Allen.

Jarrett Allen is probable ahead of Friday's matchup vs. the Kings as he is dealing with a right ankle sprain.
Allen has seen his average in minutes dip slightly from last season's numbers (26.2 in 2018-19 vs. 25.6 in 2019-20) which is likely due to the addition of DeAndre Jordan. Allen is still producing solid fantasy value but could produce greater value if he was given more opportunity. Continue to monitor for updates but it looks likely that Allen will suit up on Friday.

Jarrett Allen feasted on the small-ball oriented Hornets on Wednesday, bullying them with 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting, adding 17 rebounds and two steals.
Allen has double-doubled in three of his last five games and is steadily gaining more ground in his position battle with DeAndre Jordan, who put up a perfect shooting night of 5-of-5 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 shooting from the line for 14 points, seven rebounds and no defensive stats in 20 minutes. Stick with Allen as he's still working on improving his still-raw game.
