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.

College/International Summary

Jarrett Allen played college ball for one season at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2016-17, the big center provided 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game for the Longhorns. He appeared in and started all 33 games for UT and shot an effective 56.6 percent from the field. The Texas native recorded 12 double-doubles, including a 22-point, 19-rebound effort in a Jan. 21 loss at No. 2 Kansas. His point and rebound total in that game were both college career-highs for Allen. Allen scored 20 points or more three times. At the end of the season, Allen was named to the All-Big 12 Conference Third Team and Big 12 All-Newcomer Team. Allen also earned a spot on the Fall 2016 Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll (minimum 3.0 GPA).

Pulls down 17 boards in Game 3

August 21, 2020
Allen recorded four points (4-4 FT), 17 rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 32 minutes during Friday's 117-92 Game 3 loss to the Raptors.
ANALYSIS
Oddly, Allen did not attempt a field goal. It's just the fifth time in NBA history, regular season or playoffs, that a player has grabbed at least 17 boards with no field-goal attempts. The only two other people to achieve the feat are, surprisingly, Wilt Chamberlain and, unsurprisingly, Dennis Rodman.

Past Season Summaries
2019

The 2019-20 season marked Allen's third in the league and third with the Nets. He set new per-game career highs in points (11.1), rebounds (9.6), assists (1.6), steals (0.6) and field-goal percentage (64.9 percent). On Nov. 25, the Texas product had his best performance of the season in a two-point win over the Cavaliers. In 34 minutes, Allen recorded 22 points (9-10 FG, 4-5 FT), 21 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks. That effort put him in great company, as he became one of only 40 players in the history of the Association to accumulate that statline. In terms of the NBA ranks in 2019-20, Allen was third in field-goal percentage, 10th in total rebounds (671), 13th in blocks (92), second in offensive rating (132.4) and 14th in win shares (8.2). Following the NBA's hiatus due to coronavirus, the Nets were one of 22 teams invited to resume the season in the Orlando bubble. Allen stepped up his game in his six of a possible eight appearances, averaging 15.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in 34.1 minutes. His best performance in the bubble was in an eight-point win over the Wizards on Aug. 2, where Allen generated 22 points (6-10 FG, 10-10 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes. On Aug. 7, during the NBA's restart in Orlando, Allen set a new career mark with eight assists in the 119-106 victory over the Kings. In that matchup, the center also posted 17 points (5-8 FG, 7-10 FT), 11 rebounds and one block in 36 minutes. It was also one of his 30 double-doubles on the season. In four playoff games against the Raptors, Allen averaged 10.3 points, 14.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.8 blocks in 33.0 minutes per post-season contest.

2018

Jarrett Allen has quickly developed a reputation as one of the NBA's most effective shot blockers through just two NBA seasons. During the 2018-19 season, he seized the starting center job in Brooklyn and helped Brooklyn make the postseason for the first time since 2015. Allen averaged 1.5 blocks per game in 2018-19 despite playing just 26 minutes per contest. He began the 2018-19 season with at least one rejection in each of Brooklyn's first seven games. Allen blocked at least three shots on a dozen different occasions, including a season-high six blocks against Cleveland on Feb. 13. The 22nd overall selection in 2017 also set career highs in points (10.9) and rebounds (8.4) per game and doubled his assists to 1.4 per contest. Allen does most of his offensive work around the rim. He finished the season shooting 59 percent from the field, a small improvement over his rookie season. Allen's Nets lost to the Sixers in the first round of the playoffs. Allen started all five playoff games for the Nets, averaging 11.0 points, 6.8 boards and 0.6 blocks per contest.

2017

Allen made his NBA debut in the second game of the season, scoring nine points while shooting 3-for-3 from the field and grabbing two rebounds in a win over Orlando. The 22nd overall pick would appear in 72 games - making 31 starts - and average 8.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game. He hit double-digits for the first time when he dropped 12 points along with six rebounds against Atlanta on Dec. 2. Allen would record four double-doubles on the year, the first coming in January when he notched 12 points and 11 rebounds versus Oklahoma City. He'd go on to score 13 points and a season-high 14 rebounds against Detroit on Feb. 7. Allen also dropped a peak of 20 points against the Lakers on Feb. 2. He recorded a season-high seven offensive rebounds during a 15-point, 13-rebound game against Sacramento on Mar. 1. He produced a high of five rejections against Milwaukee on Apr. 5. Allen shot .776 from the line, draining 114 of his 147 attempts. He'd also go on to lead the Nets with 144 offensive rebounds.

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.
