More Consistency Player Rankings:  Quarterback  |  Running Back  |  Wide Receiver  |  Tight End

Below lists out each quarterback who played at least eight games and their categories list the number of games in which they had at least the stated topic. The consistency rating comes from the number of times where they had either a 300 yard passing game and/or a two touchdown game, all divided by the number of games that they played. This does not count rushing touchdowns.

The Column for "Either" shows how many times they had either a 300 yard passing game and/or a two touchdown game.

Quarterbacks usually only have one starter in most fantasy leagues so getting that position right - consistently - will pay major dividends. While almost any quarterback can have a big game, the critical characteristic is that your starter has no worse than a very solid game as often as possible.

The scoring totals slipped a bit from 2012 when quarterbacks often posted career highs in touchdowns and/or yardage. There aren't many surprises here since the position is dominated by mostly the same four or five elite passers each year. Peyton Manning made it back with a a second best showing in every one of the below categories in his first season in Denver. This time he'll have even better receivers. The biggest surprise was likely Aaron Rodgers who ended with big numbers but they came mostly from a handful of monster games instead of consistently posting good stats every week.
