This Fantasy Season has already been full of surprises. There’s been many players that people wouldn’t expect to be a boom or a bust, with lots of players having shining weeks and with having very few the next. Many people have been counting on their favorite fantasy player to be a primary producer, only to have them bring in half the points they were expected to collect. (OBJ we’re looking at you)

Here’s a ranking of the top 5 producers in every position based on consistency, in my opinion:

Quarterback:

Player Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
Aaron Rodgers 23.56 17.42 26.40 Bye
Matt Ryan 24.36 27.84 19.90 35.52
Ben Roethlisberger 21.80 19.76 6.98 33.90
Cam Newton 21.16 29.82 13.08 15.60
Dak Prescott 10.28 18.28 23.52 18.10

Wide Receiver

A surprising amount of wide receivers have had dull weeks at least once this season that shocked me.

Player Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
Antonio Brown 24.60 3.90 (WHYY) 14.00 18.40
Jordy Nelson 9.20 13.30 22.10 Bye
Julio Jones 12.60 16.60 1.60 (WHYY) 36.00
AJ Green 24.00 3.80 7.70 23.30
Mike Evans 15.90 13.00 19.20 5.90

Running Back

Le’Veon would undoubtedly be on this list had he not missed the first three weeks.

Player Week 1 Weeks 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5
David Johnson 19.20 14.30 23.10 10.40 30.50
