Jarrett Allen 2017-18 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

Atkinson "can't wait " until he hits his peak....Booker hobbled... will we finally see Jarrett 'The Fro Down!' Allen block em in the paint for 20+ minutes? Is this the beginning of the meteoric rise of one of the most anticipated Rim-minders of the next generation? ...Or will Atkinson just play him 12 minutes and say O he was amazing while I send him back to the waiver wire?

 

Thoughts fellow Roundballers? :D

Its a fair debate But I go with the guy that:   A. Has higher untapped upside ceiling B. Has not shown you even his floor yet C. Was the draft pick of the guy coaching him and

Breakout game. He just needed minutes. I dropped Vonleh for him. Allen is more likely to be the man down the stretch, with higher upside on a perfect Nets team. High tempo, youth movement.

does he have injury concern that will hinder his playing time?

Every player that steps on the court has injury concern.  There is no crystal ball to predict if injury will happen or not. 

 

Anyway,  good bye Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. You've served me well in the past, but we all know what your ceiling is. Hello Jarret, let's see what you can do this year

The crazy thing about Allen is that he might have an undervalued or under appreciated offensive upside.  He may never reach it this year, but with the pace the Nets play at and his ability to get up and down much quicker than most guys his size,  I think he has 15-17 point upside when all is said and done. Give me 2.5 stocks and 7-8 boards a game .  This is the time to go get him. It may take another month or two , but down the stretch......Allen will be a pick up of pick ups and for those of y'all playing dynasty......if he's not already gone ........cut lose those fringe/meh guys and enjoy the fruits of Allen's labor.

Coach Kenny Atkinson said Jarrett Allen's minutes will go up "if he keeps playing well."

He played a career-high 24 minutes on Friday and even played down the stretch. Allen's per-minute numbers have dropped a tad, but he still has 2.1 blocks per 36 minutes and his fouls are coming down. With the Nets likely done with Timofey Mozgov and really just Tyler Zeller as Allen's main obstacle, it makes sense to add Allen in competitive leagues.

Just speculatively add him. In case  he blows up and gets grabbed by my opponent. Huge upsides in that fantasy friendly team, especially with pass-first Dinwiddie running the point. Saw Din set up big men Zeller pretty well. I'm not worried about Mozgov. 

Will watch him for a while before starting him in my ROTO league.
