Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco 49ers

Player consistency is important to fantasy football owners. While you will never be able to predict exactly how a player is going to perform any given week, looking at historical trends helps identify some of the most consistent players in the NFL on a per-game basis over the past several seasons.

A few of these players experience spikes or dips in their per-game productivity from year to year but remain consistent in terms of their body of work over the period of seasons. Select years were removed to account for injury or sheer abnormality.
