Fantasy Football Consistency: Standard Scoring Differences – TE

Josh Brickner shows you the effect of Standard scoring versus PPR scoring when evaluating the Consistency of Tight Ends in 2017. Who improved and who declined may surprise you!

The TE position was a wasteland for fantasy points in 2017 as Travis Kelce (32) and Rob Gronkowski (36) were the only two tight-ends to finish inside the Top 50 in PPR scoring. Therefore, fantasy owners of Jared Cook were elated when the Packers TE scored 16 and 20 PPR points in Weeks 7 and 9 respectively. Unfortunately, those same owners were equally as disappointed when Cook was held under 2 PPR points during the stretch run of Weeks 12 & 13.  Boom/Bust players like Cook are destructive to the playoff chances of owners in H2H fantasy leagues where your overall record determines whether or not you get a ticket to the dance.

You want to draft players on your team who are consistent fantasy performers from week to week. If you’re unfamiliar with the Consistency Rankings and Clutch Reports over at Big Guy Fantasy sports, I recommend you take a look. You will not be disappointed. Bob Lung has been looking at consistency in fantasy football for 15 years, but from a mostly PPR scoring lens. Well, the times they are a changin’. The last two weeks, I examined the difference in RB and WR consistency between PPR and Standard (non-PPR) scoring formats. Today, we will analyze the changes in the consistency of the TE position when the scoring changes from PPR to Standard.
