2019: 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.

Unfamiliar with how consistency can help your Fantasy team? Make sure to subscribe to the In-Season Package or VIP package and get all the consistency information you need to win your league!

Your subscription includes 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

The quarterback position was once again this week above the average with 17 quarterbacks earning Clutch Games. Well, thank goodness that we are back to “reality” and Lamar Jackson was the #1 quarterback again this week. Congrats to Drew Brees on his record-setting Monday Night game and for helping me into the finals of one of my leagues! Patrick Mahomes had an excellent day in a snow-storm and helped his Fantasy owners into the finals as well. But Aaron Rodgers let many of us down again!

THE UNEXPECTED

Mitchell Trubisky has put up four straight Clutch Games and five out of his last six. Of course, no one is hotter than Ryan Tannehill, who now has a 70% Clutch Rating and has been leading many Fantasy owners thought the playoffs and into the finals. Josh Allen missed this past week, which is unexpected as he drops to a 71% consistency rating for the year. It’s still very respectable for the year.       

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your team this week, grab the following players: Dwayne Haskins and Gardner Minshew.

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.
