December 4, 2017

This might be the last time we pick Jerebko on account of Rudy Gobert likely returning to action later this week. Yet we do so anyway due to his continuing good value as a starter. Averaging 9.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game in that role, Jerebko’s headiness and high IQ for finding the open spot both around the basket and from the perimeter has stretched the floor for the Jazz team, in the process both reinvigorating the career of Derrick Favors and averaging 15 fantasy points of his own over the last ten games.


December 1, 2017

From the deep bench to a key cog, Jerebko puts up consistent low-end production as a starter, and appears to be in no danger of losing the spot until either Rudy Gobert or Joe Johnson return from injury. One anomalous 7.0 fantasy point game aside, Jerebko has averaged 18.6 fantasy points over the last nine starts, and has done so with a relative consistency that accords with his career numbers. It can therefore be expected to continue.


November 25, 2017

The starter of six games in a row, Jerebko has three 20+ fantasy point outings in that time, and none below 11. And while this stretch yields an average of only 18.3, it is consistent production for a near-minimum price that could fill out the power forward spot for you if needs be.


November 17, 2017

While they initially started Thabo Sefolosha as a second small forward, the Jazz have instead decided to cover for the absence of mainstay centre Gobert by playing a more suitable power forward alongside makeshift centre Derrick Favors. Jerebko is that player. Brought in precisely to be this reliable depth, he has responded with 11.0 point and 5.5 rebound averages in the two games he has started. An active defender and good spot-up shooter, Jerebko is a solid role player who can put in role player numbers for a basement price. Ignore the season averages to date.

Injuries and an unfavourable depth chart made for a fairly mediocre season numbers wise, albeit not one without its moments. Jerebko's two full seasons in Boston have not rivalled his Detroit years, and, given the limited roster spots and the need to prioritise filling them elsewhere - plus the impending arrivals of Yabusele and Zizic - there might not be a spot for him here. Nevertheless, if the three previous years of near-40% three-point shooting are more representative of his shooting ability than the four around them, then that plus his generally heady play, and defensive effort if not results, may make him a candidate for the room MLE if the cap space route is pursued.

Player Plan: Expiring $5 million contract. A worthy backup, but retain only for room MLE or less.
