2019 Fantasy Outlook
Allen saw improvement across the board in his sophomore campaign, emerging as the Nets' full-time starting center as the team made the postseason for the first time since 2015. The former Texas one-and-done posted career-highs in points (10.9), rebounds (8.4), assists (1.4) and blocks (1.5) across 26.2 minutes per game while shooting 59 percent from the floor. While under most circumstances, the expectation would be for Allen's role to grow even more in his third season, the Nets signed center DeAndre Jordan to a four-year, $40 million contract this offseason. And with the Nets shifting from the mindset of wanting to develop young talent to being a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference, Allen will have to earn every minute he plays this season while facing legitimate competition at center from the veteran Jordan. While it's certainly not an ideal situation for the third-year player, Allen still has the trust of and experience of working with head coach Kenny Atkinson on his side, plus built-in chemistry with Brooklyn's returning personnel, so the big man should still be in line to see minutes in the high-20s again this season.

To fight for starting job
CBrooklyn Nets
August 7, 2019
In a recent interview, Allen made it clear he intends to remain the Nets' starting center, despite the addition of DeAndre Jordan, The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Allen initially downplayed the competition between he and Jordan, but after saying "it doesn't matter to me," the third-year big man followed up with a rather explicit correction: "F--- it, yeah, I want to start. F--- it," Allen said. While coach Kenny Atkinson is yet to divulge which of the two centers will run with the first unit, he appeared encouraged by Allen, who's normally reserved, going out of his way to stake his claim to the job. "As far as starting, not starting, Jarrett Allen said, 'Hey, I want to be the starter,' which I love," Atkinson said. "It's great. I think we embrace the competition. I think that'll play out. I do think it helps us matchup-wise. If it's Joel Embiid, maybe Jarrett gets two quick fouls or something (and) we do have a heck of a player to support him and potentially starting different guys, too. I think that's possible. I think it's a great tandem to have." Judging from that quote -- specifically, the word "support" -- perhaps Allen already has the upper hand heading into camp, but the pair will likely split minutes relatively evenly. That should mean another productive campaign for Allen, though his upside will likely be limited so long as Jordan is healthy.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Despite being a late-first-round selection, Allen enjoyed a strong rookie season. It got off to a somewhat slow start, as the big man averaged just 18.2 minutes across his first 50 games of the year. However, as he was slowly integrated into the rotation and gained some added comfort, Allen wound up averaging 9.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks across 24.0 minutes in his final 22 games after the All-Star break. That provided an early glimpse into what Fantasy owners can expect heading into 2018-19. Allen is set to open the year with the top unit and considering his age, upside, and the Nets' lack of premier big men, he should have every opportunity to log minutes in the upper-20's most nights. After finishing 22nd in the league in blocks per game last year while playing just 20.0 minutes per night, look for Allen to solidify his place as one of the league's best young rim-protectors. The offseason addition of Ed Davis means Allen will have some competition for playing time, but developing Allen should be the Nets' priority, and it's unlikely that Davis will be a major drag on Allen's overall role.
Allen, the 22nd overall selection in the 2017 NBA Draft, is just 19 years old after spending one standout season at Texas. He averaged 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game as a freshman, showcasing his ability to clean the glass and protect the rim. While he still needs to get stronger and develop more as an offensive player, he's a high-upside prospect, and the Nets will likely do everything they can to push his development along during his rookie year. That said, Allen isn't exactly ready to jump into a major role right away. Coach Kenny Atkinson already announced Timofey Mozgov will start at center to open the year, meaning Allen will have to fight for reserve minutes with the likes of Quincy Acy and Trevor Booker. Allen is currently the favorite to land backup duties, but that will still restrict his overall potential as a Fantasy target. At this point, Allen is much more valuable in dynasty formats.
