2018: Consistency Week in Review – QB – Week 14

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.

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 14 for the quarterbacks…

THE EXPECTED

We are above the average of 12 quarterbacks with 17 quarterbacks earning Clutch Games this week. Tom Brady has been marginally consistent this season with a 62% Clutch rating, but he had a big week taking the #2 spot. Andrew Luck remains in second place with a 77% Clutch Rate. He is tied with Ben Roethlisberger and Cam Newton. Patrick Mahomes was fifth place this week versus the Ravens. Not many quarterbacks have been able to do that this year.

THE UNEXPECTED

The biggest unexpected this season has been the inconsistency in some of the big name quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers (62%); Drew Brees (54%)and Deshaun Watson (62%). There are many others like Cousins, Rivers, Brady and Stafford. All who have been consistent in the past, but just haven’t been there for their Fantasy teams on a weekly basis this year. Sadly, players like Brees and Jared Goff are ranked fifth and seventh respectively in total points. They have been a terrible tease each week. And in many cases, the matchups looked great on paper!

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your team this week, grab the following players: Dak Prescott and Derek Carr.

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.
