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.

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.

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.

Jarrett Allen had an off-night against the Knicks on Sunday, tallying five points, five rebounds, two blocks and two turnovers.
At least Allen had two swats to save his boxscore. Consider this line an anomaly for Allen, who is receiving plenty of minutes as long as DeAndre Jordan is out with a dislocated finger. Allen is one of the few Nets who can actually play with or without Kyrie Irving in the lineup. Allen is a solid mid-round value right now.

Jarrett Allen double-doubled in Saturday's win over the Pistons, chipping in 20 pointe, 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks
With teammate DeAndre Jordan still sidelined with a dislocated finger the starting center job is Allen's for the taking. He was a nuisance for the Pistons front court as he not only grabbed 15 boards (5 offensive) but also swatted four shots. With no other true big-man to eat up minutes, Allen is a lock to continue to not only grab boards, but also chip in solid points at an effective rate.
January 25, 2020, 10:19 pmAndre DrummondC, Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond double-doubled in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, logging 20 points, 21 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
Drummond shot below average in this one going 8-of-20 from the field as he had to contend against the Nets' Jarrett Allen. The less-than-stellar shooting also carried over to the charity stripe, where he went 4-of-8. Nevertheless, he still finished with a monster day on the glass, and the two blocks, making this a good game for roto and points league players.

DeAndre Jordan (dislocated right middle finger) will remain out of Saturday's game versus the Pistons.
Jarrett Allen has been holding down the fort with Jordan out and should continue to see his minutes in the upper-20's while he's out.

Jarrett Allen didn't take advantage of DeAndre Jordan's absence on Thursday, scoring seven points and grabbing eight boards as the Nets fell 128-113 to the Lakers.
Allen added just one blocked shot in his 30 minutes. He should still be a decent mid-round value going forward, even if DeAndre Jordan is around to gobble up rebounds.

DeAndre Jordan (dislocated right middle finger) is being listed as out against the Lakers on Thursday.
Jordan is being joined by Nicolas Claxton (shoulder) on the sidelines for this game, as the teams' frontcourt depth will be tested in this one. Look for Jarrett Allen to get all the run he can handle in this one.

The Nets have downgraded Nicolas Claxton (shoulder) to doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers.
Claxton was injured when Giannis Antetokounmpo set a screen during the game on Saturday. He managed to play well on Monday but is apparently still dealing with the issue. If Claxton and DeAndre Jordan cannot play, Jarrett Allen will have a lot of responsibility.

Jarrett Allen posted a 13-point, 13-rebound double-double along with a steal and a block against the Sixers on Monday.
Kudos to Allen for coming through against tough competition. He's been posting solid top-90 value on the season by way of low-end lines like this one. It's clear that he'll take a hit once DeAndre Jordan returns from his injury, but as long as Allen plays the majority of Brooklyn's center minutes, he's a solid middle-round big man with upside. Maybe Kyrie should start mentioning him next time he lists the team's young core.
