2019: 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.

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

The quarterback position was once again this week above the average with 17 quarterbacks earning Clutch Games. After we had a Aaron Rodgers sighting at the top of the list last week, Drew Brees came back from the semi-dead and zoom to the top. He just beat out Jameis Winston for the top spot, as both had over 40 Fantasy points. Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott didn’t have great weeks, but it was certainly good enough to earn their 13th and 11th Clutch Game respectively. Deshaun Watson also stayed hot for the Fantasy playoffs and looks good to continue his streak.

THE UNEXPECTED

Mitchell Trubisky has put up three straight Clutch Games and four out of his last five. Also, just as hot as in their last five games is Kyle Allen and Sam Darnold. Right now, Ryan Tannehill is ALMOST as hot as his wife! He’s practically unstoppable over the last six weeks! Drew Lock had quietly come onto the scene and earned two straight Clutch Games in his first two starts in his career.      

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your team this week, grab the following players: Drew Lock and Jacoby Brissett.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, quarterbacks who didn’t earn a Clutch Game this week.

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.
