Fantasy Football Consistent Performers – 2020

Consistent performance from your fantasy lineup is critical for playoff and ultimately fantasy championship success. The players in this post are mid-level tiers that for the most part fill your backup quarterback, #2 or #3 running back, wide receiver and tight end positions. We know the big hitters are relativity consistent and produce high numbers on a weekly basis. It’s the “who do I start this week” players that make the difference.

Fantasy Football Inconsistent Performers – 2020

The table includes the standard deviation (Standard deviation is a number used to tell how measurements for a group are spread out from the average (mean), or expected value.) and a Low Range / High Range which is one standard deviation from the average.  

Three quarterbacks stand out as being consistent and producing weekly scores relatively close to the season average. In other words, you know what you’re going to get, even if the monster games are rare. Carson Wentz, Derek Carr and Gardner Minshew are potential starters based on their matchup week to week. Wentz falls within a mid-teen to low 20’s each week and rarely has the complete bust with only two weeks below 10 fantasy points.  

Derek Carr also fits into 15 to 20 fantasy points a week range but doesn’t have the monster game every four weeks that a full-time fantasy starter needs to have. Gardner Minshew is someone to watch this season. The rookie 6th round pick was remarkably stable as he rarely produced less than 10 fantasy points and more than 20 fantasy points. If you wanted 15-17 fantasy points from the quarterback position then Wentz, Carr or Minshew was your man.

Devin Singletary stands as a consistent fantasy producer at the running back position. Singletary averaged 9.9 fantasy points per week last season with 8 of his 12 games falling within the High / Low range. Josh Allen has stabilized the quarterback position and the addition of Stefon Diggs adds another focus area for opposing defenses. Singletary will be a focus of the running game and receiving out of the backfield. His average per game will rise and if he maintains the consistency, Singletary is a sold #2 weekly running back play. 

Todd Gurley was a major pre-season concern and he dropped in fantasy drafts based on fear alone. Those owners who took a chance were rewarded with an average of 12.5 fantasy points per week. 12 of the 15 games he played in were within the High / Low range. Gurley is a mix of running back yards, receiving yards and plenty of touchdowns. Gurley’s role in Atlanta will continue to be focused on mid-level carries, mid-level receiving yards and touchdowns. When you add his versatility all up, Gurley is a consistent #2 running back.

Robert Woods was a consistent #2 fantasy wide receiver last season and a borderline #1 for the Los Angeles Ram. Cooper Kupp and Woods will continue to dominate the receptions and targets. Woods averaged 9.5 fantasy points a week last season and rarely fell below the Low Range. He had five games over 12 fantasy points. Woods only scored twice which is a concern. In his first two years in LA, he scored 5 and 6 TD’s respectively, so another 1,000-yard 5 TD season is not unreasonable to expect. 

Calvin Ridley has emerged as a solid #2 wide receiver in the Atlanta offense. Ridley averaged over 10 fantasy points a week and no games that skew the average (i.e. Sammy Watkins). Six of the thirteen games he played in were in the double-digit range and 10 fell within the High / Low Range. The Atlanta offense has three major targets in the passing game with Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and now Hayden Hurst. Ridley will at worst meet and likely exceed last year’s totals.

Eric Ebron has found a new home in Pittsburgh and with Ben Roethlisberger expected to be healthy, he’s in for a good season. Ebron was victim to inconsistent quarterback play last season but thrived when Andrew Luck was under center. Roethlisberger loves his tight ends and Ebron’s weekly average could double.
