WR Consistency Rankings

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 RB 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 WR position for my analysis is 30 snaps taken. This takes into account the variation in formations in the NFL. Percentage rankings for top-24 (WR2), top-12 (WR1) and top-5 weeks will be presented along with a statistical rating.

What Have We Learned?

-Top WR scoring is more erratic than top RB scoring, as seen by the difference in FlurrySports Ratings between the two.

-Antonio Brown is a beast and it’s not even close based on statistics of saying who the number one WR is in fantasy football

-JuJu had an amazing rookie year and Pittsburgh WR position is a must-have on your team

-Hopkins and Hilton both posted great numbers with backup QBs last year, so look out this season

-Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams are great values that could get even better

-AJ Green and Julio Jones are as good as you think they are

-Don’t be afraid to draft Amari Cooper at his current ADP33/WR14
