2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 24th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, Jerome landed with the Suns. He's coming off of a National Championship with Virginia, where he averaged 13.6 points (43.5 FG%, 39.9 3P%, 73.6 FT%), 5.5 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 34.0 minutes as a junior. Those numbers were good enough to land him an ACC All-Second Team selection. With the Suns adding Ricky Rubio during the offseason, Jerome will have to fight for backup minutes along with Tyler Johnson, Elie Okobo and Jevon Carter. More clarity on the Suns' rotation may emerge during training camp and the preseason, but it doesn't seem like Jerome will be able to carve out a role that will result in standard fantasy league relevance.
