No Zach Ertz? No Problem! Trey Burton just gracefully fills in and takes the #1 spot in Ertz’s honor! The two have combined for 11 Clutch Games this year.  

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.

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 14 for the tight ends…

THE EXPECTED

The tight ends were a little above the normal number of Quality Game earners (12) with 16! I know that “handcuffing” a starting tight end seems weird, but it’s hard to argue that if you draft Zach Ertz next year, you damn well better get Trey Burton at some point! Burton filled in again for Ertz as the starter and took the #1 spot this week! Are you kidding me? Jared Cook finally earned his first Clutch Game in the past four weeks! Travis Kelce and Kyle Rudolph each earned their Clutch Games this week while many other “studs” either didn’t play at all or were awful.

THE UNEXPECTED

Some real no-names hit the list this week with players like Adam Shaheen and Rhett Ellison. Jesse James, Eric Ebron and O.J. Howard earned a rare Clutch Game for them this season. Howard looked great while Cameron Brate did basically nothing. Speaking of nothing, Jimmy Graham AND Greg Olsen both earned ZERO points this week! Ouch!

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, tight ends who didn’t earn a Quality Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these running backs early in their drafts cannot be happy with this past week’s performance.

THE EXPECTED

It was a way above average week for wide receivers as they totaled 45, which is much higher than the average number of Clutch Game earners (36). Hopkins and Antonio Brown have dominated the receiver very similar to what Gurley and Bell has done to the running backs. Brown is at 303.90. Hopkins is at 277.30. The next three spots are as follows: Keenan Allen (3rd – 228.20); Adam Thielen (4th – 221.30) and Jarvis Landry (5th – 209.80). Yep, Brown is almost 100 points ahead of FIFTH place!

Davante Adams has been on fire since Brett Hundley took over while Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb has been worthless. If Aaron Rodgers comes back this week, you could see a flip-flop of the situation. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs continue to BOTH earn Clutch Games with Case Keenum at the helm and no one can seem to slow them down!

THE UNEXPECTED

There are always a group of unexpected receivers who the average Fantasy owners don’t recognize. This week’s group includes TommyLee Lewis, Chris Godwin and Chris Moore. Will any of these player’s consistency continue? I’ll certainly let you know, in this weekly series, as I see consistency trends in players. Josh Gordon earned his second straight Clutch Game and continues to look great! Mike Wallace has earned four straight Clutch Games and Cooper Kupp has earned five straight.

The unexpected bad list is big this week! Top studs like Larry Fitzgerald, Brandin Cooks, and Jordy Nelson (seventh straight week), and Mike Evans!

Waiver Wire Consistency

If you’re looking for some names of consistent receivers who may be on your waiver wire, I would like for the following names: Chris Godwin and Chris Moore.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, wide receivers who didn’t earn a Clutch Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these wide receivers early in their drafts cannot be happy with this week’s performance.

THE EXPECTED

Running backs were above the average this week as 28 running backs earned a Clutch Game this week versus the normal 24. If you were outside last Thursday evening around 9pm EST, you may have heard a soft scream of NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!  That’s approximately when Alvin Kamara went out of the Thursday night game with a concussion. Hopefully he will be back this week for those who’s playoff hopes are still alive. LeVeon Bell took the #1 spot this week and YTD in total points over Todd Gurley by 5 points. Gurley and Bell are ahead of Kamara (3rd) by 50 points and 65 points ahead of Kareem Hunt (4th).  

LeSean McCoy “plowed” through a snow storm to improve his Clutch Rate to 85%. Between injuries, Leonard Fournette is at a respectable 82% Clutch Rate.

THE UNEXPECTED

Alex Collins and Jamaal Williams stayed hot with their fourth straight Clutch Games while Kenyan Drake has earned five out of his last six games. Giovani Bernard and Jonathan Stewart each earned their second straight Clutch Game.

Some potential surprises and waiver wires pickups may be Wayne Gallman and Rod Smith. The worst unexpected players are those top picks who did not earn a Clutch Game this week. Alvin Kamara, Lamar Miller and DeMarco Murray, just to name a few.

WAIVER WIRE CONSISTENCY

If you’re looking for some waiver wire pickups to help with your bye weeks this week, grab the following players: Wayne Gallman and Rod Smith.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, running backs who didn’t earn a Clutch Game this week.
