FANTASY FOOTBALL: 2018 Consistency Awards - TE

Bob Lung passes out the Consistency Awards to the tight ends for 2018 Fantasy Football season! Where did your tight ends finish? Follow Bob @bob_lung.

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

WORST VALUE

This award goes to the Tight End 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 tight end in 2018.

And the winner is….

Kyle Rudolph

The epitome of consistency for two straight seasons with a 75% Clutch Rate. However, Kirk Cousins came to town and ruined it for Kyle. Many of the games, Rudolph was practically non-existent. He was TE8 during the preseason and seemed to be a good value pick in Rounds 7-9. However, Rudolph ended the year ranked seventh in total points, BUT his Consistency was a horrible 38%, which ranked him 21st. Don’t see much changing in 2019, so I’d stay away from him.

 

BEST VALUE

This award goes to the Tight End 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 tight end in 2016.

And the winner is….

Eric Ebron

Ebron was an after-thought for most Fantasy drafts. His ADP was around TE19 and with Jack Doyle there for the Colts, it didn’t make any sense to draft Ebron. Well, by the end of the year, that attitude changed. Ebron finished the year ranked fourth in total points and had a 75% Clutch Rate, which ranked him fourth as well.

 

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

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

And the winner is….

Chris Herndon 

Just like the receivers, the tight ends weren’t very consistent in 2018. Herndon was the only tight end to exceed a 50% Clutch Rate, by going seven for 12 or 58% consistency. This ranked him 10th in consistency for the year. Will Dissly had a 50% Clutch Rate but he only played in four games.

 

CLUTCH-LESS

This award goes to the Tight End 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….

Austin Hooper

Hooper is certainly a tight end what I have stayed away from and told the readers to do the same. Hooper is a boom or bust player almost every week. This is evident by his final total points ranking of sixth overall in 2018. However, his consistency was only a 38%, which ranked him 20th overall. He’s just not worth the headache!

 

CLUTCH-MORE

This award goes to the Tight End 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….

O.J. Howard

Howard was off to a great start by going seven out of 10, but injuries did him in to finish the season. His 70% Clutch Rate ranked him seventh overall even though his total points rank was only 15th. He will be a solid pick in 2019, if only he was a little more reliable health-wise.

 

CLUTCH COMEBACK PLAYER OF THE YEAR

This award goes to the Tight End 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….

George Kittle

Kittle wasn’t a surprise for us here at Big Guy Fantasy Sports. His last four games of 2017, he earned three Clutch Games and was ranked in the Top 10 tight ends on our draft list. Overall, his 2017 wasn’t very good, as he ranked 19th in total points and had a 33% Clutch Rate. His 2018 was outstanding though! He finished ranked third in total points and went 13 for 16 or 81% Clutch Rate. Which tied him for second with Zach Ertz.

 

CLUTCH MVP

This award goes to the Tight End that ended the 2016 with the best combination of total Fantasy Points and consistency.

And the winner is….

Travis Kelce

Kelce wins his second consecutive Consistency MVP award! Last year was close, this year was NOT! Kelce dominated the Fantasy world at tight end by being #1 in total points AND consistency at 94%! Kelce will easily be drafted in the late second or early third round in 2019. And for once, it may be worth it! His xConsistency was 17.43, which would have been fifth in the wide receiver rankings and ninth at running back. With so few consistent tight ends in the Fantasy world, it may be worth paying up in 2019.
