Strong Starters / Weak Finishers – Quarterbacks – 2020

Too many times in a fantasy season, you draft the perfect team destined for the championship, only to have them sputter when it means the most. A strategy often used by the savvy fantasy manager is the to sell high and snag the early under performers from another team. The charts below expose those players who started fast in 2019 but in crunch time were a major let downs. The analysis includes game to game comparisons rather than a week to week. Bye week and injuries misses aren’t included in the trend. Three quarterbacks fit the bill, at least during the 2019 season, for a strong start and weak finish.

Strong Starters / Weak Finishers – Running Backs – 2020

Strong Starters / Weak Finishers – Wide Receivers – 2020

Strong Starters / Weak Finishers – Tight Ends – 2020

Except for a monster game 7 Aaron Rodgers was below his season average game to game more than he was above. A single game can skew the average that much. You really must start asking if age and lack of complimentary talent at the wide receiver position after Davante Adams is taking its toll. 

Kyler Murray ran into some tough defenses down the stretch and the passing yard totals suffered. The addition of Kenyan Drake mid-season revived the running game and helped balance the offense. The usual toll of a rookie season was also a contributor to a slow down. The addition of DeAndre Hopkins should help Murray’s season long consistency in 2020.

Russell Wilson set the bar high in his first nine games averaging almost 25 fantasy points a week. He finished the last seven games with almost 15 fantasy points a week. It doesn’t help playing San Francisco twice. Wilson is one of the best, if not underrated fantasy quarterbacks out there. With any fantasy playoff run it’s best to have a couple quarterbacks on your squad and play the match-up game.
