Quarterback Consistency Rankings
David Dorey
June 21, 2011
 

More Player Consistency 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.

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. 2010 saw the same set of great quarterbacks return but the younger studs are on the rise like Joe Flaco and Matt Ryan.

Eli Manning was a big surprise last year with a very dynamic - and yet young - receiver crew and a running game that broke down. What is nice is that there were 18 quarterbacks who had over 50% of their games played producing 300 yards and/or two scores. That's plenty to go around even in a big fantasy league.
