FANTASY FOOTBALL: 2018 Consistency Awards - WR

Bob Lung passes out the Consistency Awards to the wide receivers for 2018 Fantasy Football season! Where did your wide receivers end up? Follow Bob @bob_lung.

The Fantasy Football season of 2018 is in the books and there were many Clutch wide receivers and some, well, not so much. Therefore, in the heart of Awards season, it’s time to announce the 2018 Clutch Awards for the Wide Receivers!

WORST VALUE

This award goes to the wide receiver that had the highest ADP at the beginning of the season and ended the season with the worst combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency. Thus, making him the worst value at wide receiver in 2018.

And the winner is….

Doug Baldwin

While injuries has a little bit to do with his decline this year, Doug Baldwin’s 2018 season was a disaster. As usual, he was ranked quite high with an ADP around WR15. He did only play in 13 games, but still only managed to rank 46th in total PPR points. To make matters worse, his consistency was more putrid. He was five for 13 in Clutch Games for a 38% Clutch Rate. This ranked him 58th. Hopefully, more healthy Doug Baldwin in 2019 will lead to him winning the most improved award in 2019. For now, he has nowhere to go but up!

 

BEST VALUE

This award goes to the wide receiver that had the lowest ADP at the beginning of the season and ended the season with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency. Thus, making the best value at wide receiver in 2018.

And the winner is….

Tyler Lockett

We go from one extreme to the other and the receivers are on the same team! Seattle’s Tyler Lockett took over the reigns for the Seahawks and filled the void for the downfall of Doug Baldwin. Lockett started the year with an ADP of WR58 in August. He finished the year ranked 41 spots higher finishing the year at WR17 in total points! He also finished tied for 14th in consistency with a 75% Clutch Rate. Hopefully he’ll fly under the radar a little this summer and be a great WR3 pick.

 

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

This award goes to the rookie wide receiver that had ended the season with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency.

And the winner is….

D.J. Moore

The rookie wide receivers weren’t a very impressive bunch this year. None of them earned over a 60% Clutch. D.J. Moore was the highest rookie receiver with a 50% Clutch Rate. He definitely had a better second half with a 57% Clutch Rate and should be a good late-round value next week. 

 

CLUTCH-LESS

This award goes to the wide receiver that ended the season with a high ranking in total Fantasy Points, but his consistency was lower than expected. Therefore, making him look more valuable (due to high points rank) than he was worth to his Fantasy teams.

And the winner is….

Corey Davis

Corey Davis has been pretty disappointing for the past couple of years. In 2018, he ended the year ranked 28th in total points. Not great, but a low-end WR3 doesn’t suck either. However, his consistency was a terrible 38%, which ranked him 52nd overall. Let someone else draft him as a WR3 next year, due to his high ranking in total points. We know his consistency doesn’t warrant the pick.

 

CLUTCH-MORE

This award goes to the wide receiver that ended the season with a low ranking in total Fantasy Points, but his consistency was higher than expected. Therefore, making him look less valuable (due to high points rank) to his Fantasy teams, when he was actually worth MORE!

And the winner is….

Julian Edelman

Edelman’s suspension caused his ADP to drop to around WR30. In many leagues, I drafted Edleman as my WR3 or WR4. Why did do that? Well, because he’s been one of the most consistent receivers over the past few years. Due to the four missed games, his total points ranked was only 22nd. However, his consistency was 92%, which ranked him fifth overall. He also ranked seventh in xConsistency. He should be a great value as your WR2 for 2019.

 

CLUTCH COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR

This award goes to the wide receiver that ended the 2017 season with a poor ranking in total Fantasy Points and consistency. However, in 2018, he had the greatest improvement in both categories making him very valuable to his Fantasy teams.

And the winner is….

T.Y. Hilton

Injuries to Andrew Luck in 2017 really hurt T.Y. Hilton in 2017 as he ended the year only ranked 27th in total points and had an awful 31% Clutch Rate. The return of Andrew Luck to full health in 2018 led to the return of Hilton to Fantasy stardom once again. Hilton’s 2018 consistency numbers were 14th in total points and had a 79% Clutch Rate, which ranked him 13th in consistency. 

 

CLUTCH MVP

This award goes to the wide receiver that ended the 2018 with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency.

And the winner is….

Davante Adams/DeAndre Hopkins

I really struggled on this decision. There certainly is a case for both players to be the Consistency MVP. Let’s start with Hopkins. Last year’s MVP, put together another perfect season with 16 straight Clutch Games. He also ended the year ranked #1 in Fantasy points. Davante Adams had a lower ADP at the start of the year (WR7) than Hopkins (WR2) and was picked overall about one round later. Adams also ended the year with a 100% Clutch Rate. He was ranked fourth in total points, BUT was only 10 points behind Hopkins and Adams missed one game. Adams’ xConsistency was 21.84 while Hopkins was 21.09. Therefore, we have co-MVP’s in the Consistency world at wide receiver in 2018.
