2018: Consistency Week in Review – WR – Week 13

Each week Bob Lung reviews the past week for Consistency highlights and trends at the wide receiver 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 wide receivers…

THE EXPECTED

The wide receivers were below the average number of Clutch Game earners (36) by having 33 on the good list. We are down to only four perfectly consistent receivers, as Julio Jones and Julian Edelman both fell on hard times this week. Keenan Allen finally had his break out week based on points as he took the #1 spot. He’s still 92% consistent and is in the Top 10 now in total points. Antonio Brown and Davante Adams were both in the Top 4 this week, but many of the other top receivers failed on their Fantasy owners. Odell Beckham did have a good week, mostly because of his arm! He threw a 49 yard touchdown pass!

THE UNEXPECTED

There were many unfamiliar names near the top of the list this week. Dante Pettis, Zay Jones, Jaron Brown and Jordy Nelson. Yes, Jordy! It’s his fourth of the year! Woot! Adam Humphries earned his fifth Clutch Game in his last six games. Curtis Samuel has three in his last four games as well. While Antonio Callaway and Dante Pettis have two straight each. The list of bad receivers is crazy huge this week! I’m sure you had some of these on your team, like I did!  

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: Antonio Callaway, Dante Pettis and Rashard Higgins.

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.

Remember, one week does not consistency make! Many of the wide receivers 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.
