2019: Consistency Week in Review – TE – Week 15

Each week Bob Lung reviews the past week for Consistency highlights and trends at the tight end position! Follow Bob on Twitter at @bob_lung

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.

Unfamiliar with how consistency can help your Fantasy team? Make sure to subscribe to the In-Season Package or VIP package and get all the consistency information you need to win your league!

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 15 for the tight ends…

THE EXPECTED

The tight ends were way above the normal average of Quality Game earners (12) in Week 14. We had another expected week with George Kittle at #1 with Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz in the Top 6. One of the other regulars on the “nice” list this year has been Darren Waller. His 71% consistency has been a great find for those who grabbed him in the late rounds. Jared Cook was one of draft favorites and after his terrible start, I dropped him in most leagues. Guess I should have kept as he’s jumped up to a 67% consistency rating. He should be undervalued next year.     

THE UNEXPECTED

Tyler Higbee has been a great find in the second half of 2019. Now if he can be the only tight end in Los Angeles next year for the Rams, it would be great. But, if Gerald Everett comes back, they’ll just offset each other. O.J. Howard has been better, but not yet at the Clutch level. With Chris Godwin and Mike Evans out, Howard might actually hit the “Good” list for the Fantasy finals? I hope so since I’m starting him in the King’s Classic.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, tight ends who didn’t earn a Quality Game this week.

Remember, one week does not consistency make! Many of the tight ends will kill your Fantasy season if you jump on them on the waiver wire expecting weekly Fantasy scores like this. Be patient….consistency will come.
