POLL: Favorite kind of player - steady or streaky

Postby pawnking » Fri Aug 22, 2003 11:43 am

If you have the choice between two players, both of whom will end the year with the exact same points, would you choose a player who will constantly produce the same numbers each week or one who will be silent one week and have huge games every so often?

In head to head matchups, I always try to have at least one or two streaky players (such as Bubba Franks) on my roster. With a player who will constantly put in some points but never score big, those few points will rarely make the difference between winning and losing, but a big week out of my streaky player and I'm fantasy gold.

Another advantage is if your streaky player has a great first two weeks, you can trade him high for a stud off to a slow start.

steady like marvin harrison... nobody beats 1722 yds, 11 tds and an nfl record in receptions eith 143 (10, 100 yd games and only 2 where he didnt have 60 yds now that is a fantasy stud). he also had 5 20+ fantasy pt games (10 yd = 1 pt, td=6 pts). steaky may be good but i will be relying on steady to win my games.

Sure, we'd all love to have Harrison, but I'm talking about two players who will end up with about the same total points at the end of the season, but one will always gine you a steady number of points but never have a great week vs. one who will have a low week or two against a week or two of big numbers. Think PHIL WR Thrash vs. TB WR Johnson.

If you're the favorite in a matchup, steady; if you're the underdog, streaky. :-)

steady without a doubt, I had the second most points overall in my 12 team league and missed the playoffs by one game due to Shaun Alexander's inconsistencies coupled with Dillon's. That's why I took C. Garner over Dillon and S. Davis this year, I think they'll be inconsistent when playing against any top defences and have the huge games against the weak one's giving them equal numbers but way too streaky. Your number two running back should be consistent, while your number one should win you games. Same goes for Receivers - but that may be easier said than done.
