QB Consistency Rankings

Quarterbacks

In fantasy football, we get fixated on total points at the end of the year. But MOST leagues are head to head on a weekly basis. That makes total points less important than consistent performance. We also want guys who can carry our team with a great week. The following QB consistency rankings aim to give you another tool for deciding between players in your fantasy draft. This is just one of many tools, so check out the rest of our Fantasy Football Draft Kit.

Rationale- The only thing that matters is the last two years worth of fantasy football data. Since injuries do happen during games that can skew weekly results, a full game at the QB position for my analysis is 40 snaps taken. Percentage rankings for top-20, top-12 and top-5 weeks will be presented along with a statistical rating.

What Have We Learned?

-Aaron Rodgers and DeShaun Watson deserve their top-2 billing in QB Average Draft Position (ADP)

-Andrew Luck is worth a bet because he is as great as the top-2, when he is healthy

-Fantasy Players are over paying for Cam Newton, Drew Brees and Carson Wentz

-Kirk Cousins and Big Ben are great values

-It’s worth taking a shot on Dak and Jimmy G

-Your eyes are not lying to you; Derek Carr, Andy Dalton, Joe Flacco and Eli Manning are bad bets

-The Fantasy Football Myth on QB is accurate. After the first couple of guys, you have to overpay for the rest of the QB pack.
