Tony Allen was held scoreless in 25 minutes in Saturday’s loss to the Rockets.
He shot 0-of-6 from the field with four rebounds, two assists and three steals. This performance comes right after his fourth double-double of the season, which sums up how inconsistent the veteran is. Most of his fantasy value comes from steals and rebounds, and aside from that he does not do much to help fantasy owners. Jan 21 - 10:49 PM

Tony Allen chipped in across the board on Sunday with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 33 minutes.

The Grizzlies are now 8-13 in games they've trailed at halftime this season, which isn't shocking for a team that relies on their defense to win games. The veteran Allen isn't an obvious fantasy option, but he's worth owning with averages of 5.5 boards, 1.8 steals, and 10.1 points per game on 49.0 percent shooting.
Jan 16 - 12:12 AM

Tony Allen scored a season-high 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 25 minutes against the Rockets during a 110-105 win.

He made his first eight attempts and finished 9-of-10 in another massive win for the Grizzlies. They were down 16 on the road in this game and now have five wins against the Warriors, Cavs and Rockets combined on the year. Mike Conley was effective as per usual with 17 points, six rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
Jan 14 - 1:41 AM

Tony Allen recorded six steals in Friday's win over the Warriors, finishing with 11 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 48 minutes.

He was everywhere tonight and helped the Grizzlies climb back from a 24-point deficit. Allen shot just 5-of-16 from the field, but who cares with a line like this? He was averaging 1.7 steals per game prior to Friday and that's where he gets most of his fantasy value, so anything else he can contribute is icing on the cake.
Jan 7 - 1:57 AM

Tony Allen scored 17 points with eight rebounds, one assist and four steals in 35 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

This was a little fluky, but the Grizzlies needed someone to step up with Mike Conley (toe) and Chandler Parsons (rest) out and Allen delivered. He shot 6-of-9 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, and the Grizzlies may shadow Russell Westbrook with him on Thursday, meaning his minutes should be high once again.

Tony Allen had nine points, eight rebounds, two steals and one assist on Sunday, making 4-of-7 field goals in 34 minutes of action.

A report during the game stated that Memphis is "listening" to trade talks involving Allen. He has epitomized the team's grit-and-grind approach in recent seasons, but the report implies that they'd be comfortable with a wing rotation that included Chandler Parsons, James Ennis, Troy Daniels and Troy Williams. To be clear, this is little more than a rumor at the moment.

The Grizzlies are "listening" to preliminary trade talks involving Tony Allen, according to beat writer Ronald Tillery.

The report states that teams are "gauging interest" and it's unclear which teams are involved, so this is firmly in the 'rumor' stage. It's potentially good news for anyone who owns Troy Daniels, James Ennis or Troy Williams, but it's all contingent upon what the Grizzlies get back, assuming a deal actually happens.

Tony Allen notched 16 points, eight rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes on Wednesday, going 7-of-17 from the field and 2-of-5 from the line.

The Cavaliers have had their share of defensive struggles this season, and they're the second-most lenient team against SGs for fantasy purposes. The fact that Cleveland was playing without LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love didn't hurt, and the Grizzlies are suddenly riding a 7-1 record in their past eight games. Allen is worth owning until he cools off.

Tony Allen scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 29 minutes during an 88-86 win over the Blazers on Thursday.

How good are the Grizzlies right now? They're on a five-game winning streak, and they've won 12 straight games decided by five or fewer points or went into OT -- that's tied with the 1994-95 Suns as the longest such streak since the merger. As for Allen, he has been rolling with minutes, but coach David Fizdale may dial it back once Vince Carter (hip) comes back. He has some value in standard leagues for now.

Tony Allen hit 9-of-14 shots for 19 points, 14 rebounds, three steals and a block in 42 minutes of Monday's intense 110-108 double-overtime win over the Pelicans.

This was easily the best game of the season for Allen and the two overtimes helped. He had a season high in points, rebounds, minutes, shots and makes, while his previous season highs were just 12 points and nine rebounds. He's averaging 11.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals over his last five, but that number is clearly inflated by tonight's game. Give him a look, but he still doesn't look close to being a must-own player in most instances.
Tue, Dec 6, 2016 12:43:00 AM

Tony Allen scored nine points with six rebounds, three steals and one turnover in 27 minutes during Thursday's win over the Magic.

While the Grandfather wasn't yelling "First Team All Defense" tonight, he was just terrific on that end late in the game. He had his three steals all come in the final 6:12 to help get the Grizzlies going. Allen has stepped up with more playing time because of the all the injuries. He even said the Grizzlies were "a makeshift team" in his post-game interview. He will likely be managed later in the season, but he could be a steals specialist for some owners.

Tony Allen ran into early foul trouble on Wednesday, finishing a double-OT win vs. the Sixers with nine points on 4-of-10 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.

With both James Ennis (calf) and Chandler Parsons (knee) on the shelf, Memphis needs everything they can get from Allen. Grizzlies coach David Fizdale wound up playing Vince Carter for 39 minutes, but we expect a more even allotment between Allen and VC during Friday's game vs. the Heat.

Tony Allen (groin) is active for Wednesday against the 76ers.

He should be the starting shooting guard after playing 31 minutes on Monday. Allen's playing time has increased in each of his last two and he could be close to 30 minutes again tonight. He's not a bad option in DFS in a favorable matchup.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 06:03:00 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Memphis just lost both Chandler Parsons (knee) and James Ennis (calf) for the next two weeks, so they're going to need everything they can get from Allen. He should be playing around 30 minutes for however long his body holds up, and he's worth owning as a steals specialist in deep leagues.

Tony Allen, who was iffy with a groin injury, hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 12 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes on Monday.

His groin injury didn't appear to be an issue tonight and he had his best game of the season. He's had at least a steal and a block in each of his last three games, but his lack of offense makes him tough to trust in fantasy, not to mention the fact he's only appeared in seven of Memphis' 14 games thus far.
