It can be hard to figure out your fantasy football team, building out your draft board, and deciding who to take when you’re on the clock.
It’s hard to believe that fantasy football drafts are a month or so away, which means the return of football (also good), but also means you need to get a jump start on how your fantasy football team will shape up for 2018.
If you’re like me, the champion of my fantasy football league in 2017, then you’ll likely be keeping the most consistent players on your team, so it’s important to keep that in mind when you’re looking at potential draft options for 2018.
Although the most consistent point producers at each position include many of the league’s biggest names and biggest stars, players who likely will be taken in the early rounds, you can still target players who may fall into your lap in the later rounds.
Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley is great example of consistency, and a big part of my personal fantasy football team’s success, as he has put up more fantasy points than any other running back, according to Casino.ca.
Sure, Gurley may not be a sleeper, as chances are he is either protected or going within the few first draft picks in your league, but he is an example of the sort of consistency you should be looking for.
Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller has shown consistency and could be available in the later rounds of your draft.
Another pillar of consistency has been Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks, who has produced solid numbers over the past 3 seasons and could be looking at even more production in 2018 as a key cog in the Rams’ offense.
Quarterbacks are a vital position where consistency should be paramount in your decision making process on draft day.
For some of the NFL’s most consistent fantasy studs over the past 3 seasons, keep names such as Los Angeles Chargers’ Philip Rivers, Detroit Lions’ Matthew Stafford, and Jacksonville Jaguars’ Blake Bortles in mind. They could potentially be available in middle to late rounds.
As far as wide receivers and tight ends, names such as Seattle Seahawks’ Doug Baldwin, Arizona Cardinals’ Larry Fitzgerald, Indianapolis Colts’ T.Y Hilton, Tennessee Titans’ Delanie Walker, and Philadelphia Eagles’ tight end Zach Ertz stand out.
Sustained performance is what makes a champion in fantasy football and should be the main ingredient when you’re deciding who your next pick will be. Use this guide to The Most Consistent Fantasy Football Players to help you along the way.
Finding those player types could be the difference between a run to the championship, or missing out on your next fantasy football title.
