2018: Consistency Week in Review – QB – Week 15

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 15 for the quarterbacks…

THE EXPECTED

We are below the average of 12 quarterbacks with only 8 quarterbacks earning Clutch Games this week. Even the regulars are only about half of this list. Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson are now both at 10 Clutch Games for the season. As usual, Wilson started off terribly slow with only one Clutch Games in his first four weeks, but has earned the remaining nine over the past 11 weeks. Philip Rivers has earned fairly hot recently with four out of his last five weeks. Definitely worth another start this week.  

THE UNEXPECTED

Sam Darnold and Josh Allen are the only two rookies on the good list. The biggest unexpected are those below on the NAUGHTY list! Brees and Goff are back down to 50% consistency for the year, while Kirk Cousins is 11th in total points and is at 43% consistency. UGH! Going back to Brees and Goff, Josh Allen and are Mitch Trubisky tied with them at 50%! Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are down to 57% consistency for the season. Not sure if that has ever happened before, where both Rodgers and Brady were under 60% consistency in the same year.

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

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

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.
