Jarrett Allen kept up his recent strong play, grabbing 10 boards and blocking four shots to go with six points, two assists and a steal in Friday’s impressive win over the Magic.
Allen had a very slow start to the season and was frustrating a lot of owners who drafted him in the mid-rounds but has really busted out lately. He’s blocking shots like we all knew he could- 2.5 over the last two weeks has helped him return fantastic top-20 value in 9-cat over that stretch.

Jarrett Allen scored 20 points to go along with a career-high 24 rebounds and three blocks in a huge overtime win against the Rockets on Wednesday.
He shot 10-of-19 from the field and missed his only attempt from the free-throw line. However, that miss turned into a crucial Spencer Dinwiddie 3-point play to give the Nets a one point lead late in overtime. Allen took advantage of Clint Capela being sidelined with a thumb injury as he was being guarded by Gary Clark and PJ Tucker for much of this game. He also played a team-high 43 minutes and showed why he has been the highest valued fantasy player on the Nets as he is inside the top-60. He has been a top-20 value over the past two weeks and is showing his early-round potential. Also, he added James Harden to the list of superstars he has blocked this season.

Jarrett Allen scored 19 points on 5-of-9 shooting with 12 rebounds, two assists, a steal and four blocks against the Celtics on Monday.
Allen dominated the paint on both ends of the floor tonight and made his presence felt. He was a team-high plus-13 and tonight was a flash of the potential owners were hoping for when they selected him with a mid-round pick on draft day.

Jarrett Allen had a nice game on Sunday evening, putting up 19 points (6-of-8 FG, 7-of-9 FT), seven rebounds and two blocks in only 24 minutes.
That's Allen's second-highest scoring game of the season, and he's really struggled to deliver on some preseason hype. The second-year center is averaging only 26.7 mpg and hasn't taken the proverbial next step in his game despite the added minutes, posting numbers that are largely in the ballpark of his rookie output (with the exception of rebounds). It'll take a lot for him to end up at his ADP.

Jarrett Allen had five turnovers and shot 1-for-8 from the field to finish Friday’s loss to the Hornets with eight points, 10 rebounds, two blocks and a steal.
Allen only played 17 minutes despite not being in foul trouble and he was just that bad tonight. Allen has been extremely disappointing so far this season as his top-85 value places him several rounds lower than his ADP. Most disturbingly, his game hasn’t seemed to grow at all from last year and it’ll take a miracle to approach his draft position. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had two points and two blocks and isn’t a standard-league play.

Jarrett Allen did not miss a single shot from the field nor the line in Friday's 114-106 loss to the Pacers, tallying 10 points, five rebounds, two assists and one block.
The perfect shooting efficiency is obviously a welcome sight, however, Allen needs to gain more confidence and be more aggressive on the offensive end of the floor. He needs volume, volume, and volume; something that will come with time, so patience is the name of the game right now.

Jarrett Allen played well against the Bulls' thin frontcourt on Wednesday, ending the night with 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with 12 rebounds and three assists to his name.
The last time he double-doubled was on December 8th, against the Knicks, so it's good to see him active on the glass once more. He did fail to swat any shots tonight, but since he's averaging 1.5 blocks per game on the season, owners need not be too worried.

Jarrett Allen had a tough matchup against Joel Embiid in Wednesday's 127-124 win over the Sixers and was limited to recording just eight points, five rebounds and two assists (zero blocks).
Allen cannot be faulted too much for his poor output as he had his hands full in trying to contain a top-3 center in the league. He's not going to be this disappointing on an average night, so move on and just chalk it up to him getting "processed." Even starting power forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was limited to three points and four boards but was at least able to swipe four steals.

Jarrett Allen held his own against Enes Kanter in Saturday's win, delivering 14 points, 12 rebounds and a pair of blocks.
That's four blocks in two games for Allen after a lull in his swats over the preceding handful of contests. Kanter still got his numbers tonight but it's nice to see that Allen can compile his own set of stats even as burlier competition tries to wear him down, as we saw tonight and on Friday when Jonas Valanciunas scored 24 points. Allen's a middle-round player with room to grow.

Jarrett Allen put up 12 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Friday's overtime victory.
Allen also went 5-of-6 from the field. Jonas Valanciunas was able to beat him up pretty good but Allen acquitted himself much better as the Raptors went small in the fourth quarter. His blocks have tailed off of late so tonight's output there was a welcome sign, and he should be a solid middle-round player all year long with plenty of upside to hit.

Jarrett Allen put up 15 points with eight rebounds and four assists on 5-of-14 shooting as the Nets lost to the Thunder on Wednesday.
This performance was better than his last two, but he is still underperforming his ADP on most nights. He needs to stop taking 3-pointers (0-of-2 tonight) as he has simply not been able to hit them outside of the first game of the season. Be patient with Allen as he should come around eventually. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson did not play his best in this one with two points, nine rebounds and six assists in 22 minutes. Look for both players to get things going sooner rather than later.

Jarrett Allen was quiet as he logged 32 minutes in Monday's 97-99 loss to the Cavs, delivering just nine points, three rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and one blocked shot.
Allen has been relatively quiet as of late and this lull in production signals a buy-low window for the sophomore. He's someone who can pop post-All-Star break, making him worth a pinch of patience this early in the season.

Jarrett Allen was invisible in Saturday's 88-102 blowout loss to the Wizards with just six points and eight rebounds to his name.
This was an ugly stinger for his owners who were riding high on his impressive double-double on Friday. Also, expectations were high coming into this game considering the Wizards were without veterans Dwight Howard and Jeff Green, adding to the disappointment factor. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was only slightly better with 11 points, eight rebounds, one trey and one steal in 28 minutes.

Jarrett Allen showed some spunk in Friday's 125-131 loss as he went toe-to-toe with Marc Gasol and did well for himself as he posted 15 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one blocked shot.
This is Allen's third straight double-double and it looks like the sophomore big man is finally heating up. He's been shy on the defensive end though, as he's been averaging just 0.4 BPG and 0.4 SPG over that span. Things should average out better overall as he continues to improve.
