Jarrett Allen 2018-19 Season Outlook


Recommended Posts

So why is he ranked so damn high. Allen’s adp was like in the 50’s which is insane 2 me.  I feel like Atkinson will never commit to playing him more than 25 min per. 10/7 with 1.5 blocks is what I gave him projected at given the Nets silly rotations. I am perplexed here.

My suspicion is that he will be decent but the hype on him is way overblown.  Mike Gallagher or other pundits will make a pick and a part of their job is to find hidden gems because if they just do th

damnnn. i think myles floor is closer to Allen's ceiling this season. to me this is a classic mistake of passing on someone on a down year and falling too heavy into the roto/BBM hype on one of their

but why? Ed Davis going go take his minutes? He's young they are rebuilding. I feel like in 30 mins game hes getting 11/9/2blks good %s.

 

He's ranked high because he could possibly be Caplea or Gobert without paying their price.

I guess you don't watch many Net games or pay attention to that crazy Attkinsons rotations. Nothing to do with my point but Kenny always looks like he wants to kill someone.

It comes down to three things:

- FG%  - Top 25 (season and last 2 months)

- Blks - 1.2 (season) to 2 (last 2 months)

- FT - doesn't hurt you

 

That was in 20 mins (season) to 23 min (last 2 months) for a rookie. 

With even 25 mins and some growth + improved guard play around him (Dlo, LeVert, Din) he will be valuable. 

10 pts is quite conservative IMO (was at 9.4 in the last 2 months @ 23 mins). 

 

Lastly, his upside is still unknown which when combined with hype creates a crazy range of where he's drafted.

the key for Allen putting up points will be cutting to the basket when his guards drive the paint. Hes great when it comes to lobs around the rim when the defenders play help D on the drive. As long as he puts an emphasis on this I see about 4 easy baskets a game. Hopefully he will get a couple more from Offensive rebounds, etc. I don't remember much of low post game from Jarrett but maybe he worked on that this offseason.
