2019: Consistency Week in Review – WR – Week 14

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.

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 wide receivers…

THE EXPECTED

The wide receivers were way above the average number of Clutch Game earners (36) that we expect to hit each week. As many of you know, I’m a big fan of Emmanuel Sanders. I have him in a ton of leagues and of course, I played him last week! So, when he went OFF last week with 34 points, I couldn’t have been happier! It was good to see Robert Woods turn his season around. Back in Week in Week 8 he had a Consistency Rating of around 35%. But he’s earned four out of his last five games and is at 58%. Not great, but he’s 21st in total points and is headed towards a respectable season.     

THE UNEXPECTED

A.J. Brown and Darius Slayton were #2 and #3 respectively and are hot commodities heading into the playoffs. However, while Darius has been 60% and has three Clutch Games out of his last four games played, A.J. Brown has only been 46% consistent this season and HAS NOT earned back-to-back Clutch Games this week. Remember that before you jump on starting him this week. Same thing goes for Diontae Johnson! He’s only been 38% consistent this year and there’s a chance JuJu may be back this week. Be careful!

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: Zach Pascal, Alex Erickson and Breshad Perriman.

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.
