Coffin Corner: Consistency is Elusive

Too often in the fantasy game we look at players as numbers. We say 'Player X has more points than Player Y' ergo Player Y is better. While that is sometimes obviously the case, there might be other scenarios where it isn't. Even more so than making the argument for players based on points earned, I thought it might be illuminating to take a look at the player week-to-week consistency. After all, scoring 29 points one week wins you a matchup, but if that same player falls to six points the next week he might cost you a win.
