Consistency Overview

Player consistency is paramount to having a fantasy team that can deliver above average points each week - that is the formula for winning of course. But most fantasy owners do not really adhere to that, instead making their drafting decisions based largely on who had the most overall points the previous season (regardless how they really accrued them) or they recall the one monster game or two that they would really like to reprise for the current season (even though it may have literally been the player's only decent showing of the year).

Consistency rankings are in some ways more important than those total stats from the previous season because they consider how often a player had a good game. How often they could make the difference in YOUR fantasy game. Have your seen - or been - the team that can post the league high for the week and follow that up with the worst score the next week? How often does that team make it to the league superbowl?

Below are links to the individual positional pages to examine the consistency for 2008 and also a look at how consistent players have been over the last three years to lessen the effect of a really good or bad season. Any surprises? Shouldn't be though - these are the players that are there for you more often than the rest.

For consistency breakdowns, just click on the position:  Quarterbacks  |  Running Backs  |  Wide Receivers  |  Tight Ends
