More Player Consistency:  Overview  |  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.

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. 2009 proved to be a banner year for quarterbacks with right at half of them turning in at least eight games worth of highly productive efforts - most years only have eight or so.

Roethlisberger has quietly been one of the more consistent quarterbacks in the league but that will be sorely tested this year with a suspension starting the season and the loss of Santonio Holmes. Schaub is another who has always been highly consistent and finally turning in a full 16 game season in 2009 proved he is worthy of stud status when healthy. Quarterbacks will be possibly overvalued this year coming off such a big 2009 season but at least there are so many good options that their number should allow them to last longer in drafts.
