Consistency in Fantasy Football is a very important factor in helping Fantasy owners make more informed decisions on who to draft and who to start/sit during the season. If you’re new to the Consistency concept in Fantasy Football, I highly recommend reading some of the Introduction articles located on the home page of www.BigGuyFantasySports.com. If you’re already a reader and follower of the site, then you are quite aware of the xConsistency concept from last year’s Guide.

The xConsistency is similar to xERA in baseball as it’s identifying the “TRUE” Consistency value of the player. The formula is as follows:

            (Total Fantasy Points Scored / Total Games Played) X Clutch Rate

The xConsistency factor will separate players with similar Consistency but different Total Points Score due to either fewer games or Clutch performances with lesser points scored.
