Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe expects Jonas Jerebko to be a key contributor off the bench for the Celtics this season.
The Celtics picked up the final year of Jerebko's contract, an easy decision based on his play during the postseason. Despite playing just 15.1 minutes per game during the regular season, he averaged 9.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 treys in 27.0 minutes per game in the playoffs, earning the trust of coach Brad Stevens in the process. The Celtics lost Jared Sullinger in free agency but added Al Horford, so the frontcourt will likely be too crowded for Jerebko to have any real fantasy value this season. Sep 5 - 9:57 AM

The Boston Globe is reporting that the Celtics will guarantee Jonas Jerebko's contract for the 2016-17 season.

The 29-year-old serves as a solid stretch-PF off the bench for the Celtics, but he faces an uphill battle for big minutes. Jerebko only averaged 4.4 points and 3.8 rebounds in 15.1 minutes per game last season and won't have much 2016-17 fantasy value unless the Celtics suffer a slew of injuries.
Jul 7 - 9:34 AM

The "consensus" is that the Celtics will retain Jonas Jerebko at $5 million next season, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.

The deal was non-guaranteed but it's a solid value, and Boston would likely have already guaranteed it if they weren't chasing Kevin Durant. The 29-year-old forward gives the Celtics a true stretch-PF, as he went 39.8 percent from deep last season, but his fantasy value is stifled by the presence of Al Horford and Kelly Olynyk, as well as the potential return of Amir Johnson and Jared Sullinger.
Jul 4 - 2:34 PM

Danny Ainge said "nothing has been decided" regarding the team option on Jonas Jerebko.

The Celtics have a team option worth $5 million on Jerebko for the 2016-17 season, but he's likely the least of Boston's concerns with guys like Kevin Durant, Hassan Whiteside, Al Horford and Dwight Howard all set to hit the open market this summer. Jerebko is unlikely to land in a situation where he'll be able to establish himself as a standard league option in fantasy hoops.
May 4 - 1:45 PM

Jonas Jerebko scores 13 points with one rebound, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes during a loss to the Hawks on Thursday.

The Celtics gave him some minutes at small forward with some foul trouble for Jae Crowder. Jerebko benefited from the matchup in the postseason and certainly because of Avery Bradley (hamstring) missing time -- the Celtics needed spacing. He'll be under contract next year and will likely slide down the depth chart again.
Apr 28 - 10:46 PM

Jonas Jerebko cooled off in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, scoring six points on 2-of-4 shooting.

The Celtics lost by 27 points, so Jerebko only played 24 minutes and added eight rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals. His DFS owners were expecting a lot more from him tonight after posting two straight double-doubles, but no one on the Celtics played well in Game 5 except for Evan Turner. If anything, hopefully this will keep his price low in DFS.
Apr 26 - 11:22 PM

Celtics coach Brad Stevens heaped praise on Jonas Jerebko prior to Game 4, which he finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

"[Jerebko] plays really, really, hard," Stevens said. "He's got versatility with regard to defensively ... And then his scoring is just a plus. You know, if he scores, he scores; if not, he's still spacing for us." Jerebko more than justified his coach's faith tonight, shooting 6-of-9 with multiple clutch baskets. His move to the starting lineup has benefited Boston in reality, and he's worth considering as a DFS punt-play.
Apr 24 - 9:13 PM

The Celtics will start Evan Turner and Jonas Jerebko again in Game 4 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

This means that Marcus Smart and Jared Sullinger will come off the bench again. Jerebko scored 11 points with 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes in Game 3 and Turner also played well with 17 points, seven assists and five steals, so it's a no-brainer for the Celtics. Both Jerebko and Turner are solid plays tonight.
Apr 24 - 4:25 PM

Jonas Jerebko double-doubled in 37 minutes against the Hawks on Friday with 11 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He played the game of his life and coach Brad Stevens stuck with him. Interestingly, Jerebko was first among the Celtics in net rating in the first two games of this series and he had a team-high plus-14 in plus-minus for this win. There's no doubt Jerebko has earned more run as the Celtics take an offense-first approach to their up-tempo style. He'll be in play as a DFS punt.
Apr 22 - 11:09 PM

Jonas Jerebko and Evan Turner will start over Jared Sullinger and Marcus Smart against the Hawks on Friday.

The Celtics really need some spacing on their offensive side, so that's why Jerebko is out there. Plus, Sullinger was not good at all in Game 2. Jerebko should get minutes in the upper teens to the low 20s tonight unless he is very hot or cold. He's on the table as a punt in DFS.
Apr 22 - 6:21 PM

Jonas Jerebko could enter the starting lineup on Friday for Game 3 vs. the Hawks according to ESPN.

"I’m always ready. I don’t care if that’s starting or coming off the bench first or coming off the eighth man, ninth man -- no matter what it is," said Jerebko. "I’m ready for whatever." Head coach Brad Stevens already hinted that a lineup switch could be coming, but hinted that he may need Jerebko's shooting in the second unit if Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) can't play. Even if Jerebko gets the nod with the first unit, he will be hard to trust in fantasy.

Jonas Jerebeko scored two points with five rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 17 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

He played down the stretch because the Celtics needed some 3-pointers. The loss of Avery Bradley (hamstring) will likely lead to more minutes for Jerebko because was a 39.8 percent shooter from deep, but coach Brad Stevens will likely try to stagger his minutes away from the Hawks starting unit. He's not a great DFS play.
Apr 16 - 10:15 PM

Jonas Jerebko (personal) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Jerebko missed Tuesday's practice, but he was never expected to sit out Wednesday's game. He might be able to see some increased minutes tonight if the game turns into a blowout, but he's still not a great target in almost any setting with Boston's frontcourt healthy.
Apr 6 - 6:34 PM

Jonas Jerebko (personal) was not present during Tuesday's practice, but he's fully expected to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

Jerebko's minutes and production are too inconsistent for him to be considered a viable target in most settings. Leave him on the wire.
Apr 5 - 2:40 PM

Jonas Jerebko (ankle) did not score in his return on Monday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

He basically took Tyler Zeller's minutes and some of Jared Sullinger's too. Jerebko isn't worth owning in most leagues and just adds depth to a messy rotation up front.
