I have to say that I’m very disappointed in myself for giving up on Jason Witten. I have always supported him as a consistent weapon for your Fantasy teams. After last season, I felt like his time as a Fantasy stud were done. I was wrong. It’s not and if he’s available, go grab him!

Consistency. Any educated fantasy owner knows that you need your Fantasy Football players to be not only good, but also consistently good! It’s a proven fact that the more consistent your Fantasy players are throughout the season, the better chance that you’ll have to win. More wins equals playoffs and playoffs can turn into championships! That’s why I’ll be here each week to help you identify the most consistent Fantasy football players in your quest towards a Fantasy championship.

Your subscription includes the Clutch Report, which will help you determine how consistent are the players in your league with your scoring method!

A quick recap for those unfamiliar with the Clutch Games system.  The Head-to-Head (H2H) format in Fantasy Football leads to the need for consistency. Many teams have been near the top of their league in scoring, but miss the playoffs by one or two games. Many will call it “bad luck” and that’s partially true. Injuries to key players, bad weather, etc. are situations that affect our Fantasy teams, but are uncontrollable. However, there is one aspect of Fantasy football that you can control. The consistency of your team!

A Clutch Game is awarded to a player each week when they exceed the Clutch Game Factor in your league for that position. The more Clutch Games a player is awarded each year, the more consistent that player is and the more beneficial they are to your Fantasy team. 

The scoring method used will be 1 point per 20 yards passing and 4 points for passing touchdowns; 1 point per 10 yards rushing and receiving; 1 point per reception; and 6 points for any rushing/receiving touchdown.

So, let’s review Week 2 for the tight ends…

THE EXPECTED

The tight ends were way over the normal number of Quality Game earners (12) in Week 1 with an incredible 17! There were some regulars here with Travis Kelce, Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Reed and Delanie Walker. Jason Witten was the top tight end this week and ranks #1 overall as well. Coby Fleener has earned two straight Clutch Games and looks like the tight end everyone was expecting last season.

{mprestriction ids="12,13"}

THE UNEXPECTED

There are only FOUR perfect tight ends after only Week Two and two of them probably weren’t drafted in most leagues. Jason Witten and Coby Fleener. Delanie Walker and Zach Ertz are the other two. However, there were quite a few unexpected tight ends on the good list. Jonnu Smith, Gerald Everett, and Ben Watson. Ben Watson should be a must grab on the waiver wire, especially if you lost Greg Olsen this past weekend.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, tight ends who didn’t earn a Quality Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these running backs early in their drafts cannot be happy with this past week’s performance. Jimmy Graham has been beyond awful!

Readers of the 2017 Fantasy Football Guide were aware of my favoritism for Michael Crabtree over Amari Cooper. So, if you drafted him in your leagues like I did, you’re patting yourself on the back!

THE EXPECTED

The wide receivers were around the average number of Clutch Game earners (36) by having 34 on the good list. The expected studs like Mike Evans (#7); Dez Bryant (#11), and A.J. Green (#30) were accounted for. However, as you may note from their rankings, they weren’t as high as we would expect. Some of the top receivers rebounded this past week and earned their first Clutch Game like Kelvin Benjamin, Julio Jones and Michael Thomas.

{mprestriction ids="12,13"}

THE UNEXPECTED

There are always a group of unexpected receivers who the average Fantasy owners don’t recognize. This week’s group includes Rashard Higgins, Deonte Thompson and Jaron Brown. Will any of these player’s consistency continue? I’ll certainly let you know, in this weekly series, as I see consistency trends in players. J.J. Nelson, Jermaine Kearse, Jeremy Maclin and Mohamed Sanu earned ALL earned their second straight Clutch Game. Some of these players may be on your waiver wire still.

The unexpected bad list is huge this week! Top studs like Odell Beckham, Amari Cooper, and Brandin Cooks were real kick in the groins for many Fantasy owners! Oh yeah, Doug Baldwin is now ZERO for two in Clutch Games!

Waiver Wire Consistency

If you’re looking for some names of consistent receivers who may be on your waiver wire, I would like for the following names: Rashard Higgins and J.J. Nelson.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, wide receivers who didn’t earn a Quality Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these wide receivers early in their drafts cannot be happy with this week’s performance.

If the quarterbacks don’t have enough unfamiliar names at the top of the list in Week 2, the running backs Top 5 consist of mostly RB2’s and zero first round picks! C.J. Anderson leads the pack with an outstanding performance!

THE EXPECTED

Running backs were right around the average this week as 25 running backs earned a Clutch Game this week. The average is usually around 24. Well, it appears that, unlike the quarterbacks, the first and second round running back studs did not regain their top spots on the good list this week. Some backs that were ranked on the Tier Draft List higher than most experts are showing their consistency like Todd Gurley, Mike Gillislee, Carlos Hyde, and C.J. Anderson. Just like season, Tevin Coleman earned a Clutch Game this week along with Devonta Freeman. Freeman is still the man but Coleman is a great Flex player.

{mprestriction ids="12,13"}

THE UNEXPECTED

Chris Thompson RAN for two touchdowns this week and is now ranked FOURTH in total Fantasy points as a PPR RB. Other pass-catching backs earned Clutch Games this week like Buck Allen, Jalen Richard, James White and Tarik Cohen. This was Cohen’s second Clutch Game and looks like a must start at the Flex spot on a weekly basis in a PPR league. Well, throw this in unexpected this week, but don’t look now, DeMarco Murray is hurt and Derrick Henry earned a Clutch Game. If you drafted him early, congrats he could be paying dividends for you imeediately.

The worst unexpected players are those top picks who did not earn a Clutch Game this week. LeSean McCoy, Ezekiel Elliott and DeMarco Murray, just to name a few. Zeke’s was a killer for many of us!

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your bye weeks this week, grab the following players who have put up back-to-back Quality Games: Chris Thompson, Jalen Richard, and Buck Allen.
