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

Below lists out each notable tight end 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 50 yards game and/or a touchdown game, all divided by the number of games that they played.

The Column for "Either" shows how many times they had either 50 yards and/or a touchdown game.

Surprisingly, the old man Gonzo was still atop the consistency rankings for tight ends and yet the #2 player was the rookie John Carlson - he rarely had a big game but he was consistently giving points almost every week. The position has tapered off in fantasy points for the last two seasons and now there are several fantasy worthy tight ends and not any that are really worthy of that early pick.
