2018: Consistency Week in Review – QB – Week 13

Each week Bob Lung reviews the past week for Consistency highlights and trends at the quarterback position! Follow Bob on Twitter at @bob_lung

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.

Unfamiliar with how consistency can help your Fantasy team?

Check out 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 13 for the quarterbacks…

THE EXPECTED

We are below the average of 12 quarterbacks with 11 quarterbacks earning Clutch Games this week. Patrick Mahomes took a week off and then came back smoking hot again to take the #1 spot this week and expand on his incredible pace! He’s now 70 points ahead of the second place quarterback. The second place quarterback is surprisingly Ben Roethlisberger. His consistency is still only 67%, which is good, but not great. Andrew Luck is second in Clutch Rating with a 75% consistency rate. This isn’t a surprise to most of the Consistency reads over the past few years, but Russell Wilson, after starting one for four in Clutch Games this year, has now put up seven out of his last eight games. The same story every year. Start slow, finish strong. We’ll see if he keeps it up through the Fantasy playoffs.

THE UNEXPECTED

Some unexpected quarterbacks are starting to show some consistency trends worth noting. Cam Newton continues to amaze this year and is now tied for second place with Luck at 75%. Philip Rivers has earned three straight Clutch Games and without Melvin Gordon for a couple more games, he could continue this hot streak. There’s a huge number of bad quarterbacks including Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Deshaun Watson and Matt Ryan.

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your team this week, grab the following players: Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen.

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

Remember, one week does not consistency make! Many of the quarterbacks will kill your Fantasy season if you jump on them on the waiver wire expecting weekly Fantasy scores like this. Be patient….consistency will come.
