Upside can be such an overused word in fantasy. Wholesale Yeezy China .Were all guilty of it. Were always hoping to be first to discover the next big star, but fantasy football isnt only about getting the greatest gain from the least expected source.Its also about being the team that puts up the most competitive score week in and week out, the team that grinds it out until the playoffs, and never runs quiet. Slow and steady wins the race might be a boring saying, but its absolutely true. (Well, its true at least as it pertains to teams qualifying for the fantasy football postseason.)In addition to seeking the biggest return for your buck at the draft table, be sure to fill at least a few spots on your roster with reliable weekly bets, the consistent types who wont let you down and will elevate your teams points-scored floor. They might be boring, unsexy picks, but theyre necessary parts in your championship quest. Entering 2016, the following players best fit the description of steady performers.The players who fit this description are not merely those with the best consistency metrics, such as those found in my consistency ratings. Those measures do generally identify more reliable bets, but roles change, unexpected injuries derail seasonal outcomes -- see the third name on the list -- and therefore the players profile in its entirety needs be considered.Each steady performer includes Tristans ADP take, listing the players ADP in ESPN leagues as of July 5, as well as my opinion on how worthy it is to risk it.Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati BengalsIt might seem difficult to believe, but only 10 running backs scored more standard-league fantasy points than Bernard from 2013-15 combined, and only seven did so in PPR scoring. Thats largely due to his involvement in the Bengals passing game; he had 163 of his standard-league points on receptions alone, fifth most among running backs. Bernard should be involved at least as much in the Bengals passing game this season, considering their lack of depth at wide receiver. Plus, hes involved enough as a runner to make an impact there as well, one of only 11 running backs to have at least 150 carries in each of the past three seasons.Tristans ADP take: 110th (110.4) is at least a round (and probably two rounds) too late. Bernard is an excellent value past the 10th round.Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Arizona CardinalsThough there are many mouths to feed in the Cardinals passing game and their quarterback is one of the older ones in the NFL, Fitzgeralds role lends itself to consistency, at least at the lower tiers of the position. His average target distance has shrunk at this latter stage of his career, dropping to a career-low 8.4 yards in 2015, yet he was able to score between seven and 13 fantasy points in nine of his 16 games. Fitzgerald is pretty predictable: He gets nine or so targets per game, one to two of those in the red zone, and his good hands fuel a high catch rate that should keep him firmly within that range most weeks, making him a nice WR3 to own.Tristans ADP take: 59th (62.3) is perhaps a round too soon, but in a season in which wide receivers are being drafted more aggressively than ever, he might need to be on your radar by the sixth round.Mark Ingram, RB, New Orleans SaintsA player doesnt necessarily have to stay completely healthy to be considered consistent, especially at running back, where injuries are commonplace. In Ingrams case, his status as the Saints go-to option at the goal line, as well as a significant contributor in their receiving game, has made him remarkably reliable on a weekly basis. To that point, he never scored fewer than six fantasy points in any of his 12 healthy games. In fact, in Ingrams 25 games played from 2014-15, he averaged 12 standard-league and 15 PPR fantasy points, and in 17 of those games he finished within five points of his averages in both formats; in four other contests he exceeded his weekly averages by a larger margin.Tristans ADP take: 22nd (23.0) is a few spots late. In a season during which the top tier of wide receivers makes more compelling cases for first- and early second-round status, Ingram makes a weak case for a first-round selection, but hes one to aggressively target in the mid-to-late second round.Greg Olsen, TE, Carolina PanthersThere might not be a player in the NFL who better fits the description of steady than Olsen, who on 25 occasions the past three seasons combined produced a fantasy point total that ranked among the top 10 tight ends for the week, second only to Rob Gronkowski (29). In addition, Olsen on only nine occasions during that same time span finished outside the top 20 tight ends in weekly scoring, and he has appeared in 142 consecutive games, starting each of the past 64 of those. Olsens critics claim that his consistency will dry up with the return of wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, but thats not necessarily so, as Olsen scored only 13 more standard-league and six more PPR fantasy points in 2015 than 2014, when Benjamin was last healthy. Olsen also accrued a greater percentage of the Panthers total targets in 2014 (25.3 percent) than 2015 (24.9), which indicates that he shouldnt be any less involved in the game plan.Tristans ADP take: 38th (39.5) is just about right, but Id be apt to take him if he slips even a spot or two.Golden Tate, WR, Detroit LionsThough Tates consistency metrics might not hint his belonging on this list -- he was a top-25 wide receiver 12 times and finished outside the top 50 at the position on seven occasions in his first two seasons with the Lions -- his role supports his being a safe selection. Calvin Johnsons retirement will shift things around in the Lions passing game, but Tate will be the team leader in targets, absorbing a solid eight to 15 weekly, more than stabilizing his weekly fantasy score. Keep in mind that Johnson missed three games in 2014, and in those games Tate was targeted 12, 13 and 14 times, scoring four, 21 and 21 fantasy points (11, 31 and 28 in PPR scoring). Tate has as good a chance as any receiver to reach the 150-target plateau, which makes him an especially safe investment in PPR.Tristans ADP take: 54th (56.0) is about right.Delanie Walker, TE, Tennessee TitansIf youre going the consistent/safe route at tight end and arent angling for Olsen, Walker should be your pick. Walker appeared in 15 games last season and didnt finish lower than 18th at the position in weekly scoring in any of them; he was the only tight end to finish within the top 20 in every game that he played plus appear in at least 15 contests. He had the 10th-largest target share -- 27 percent of the Titans total targets -- in the league and the largest among tight ends last season, and while Walker might be needed to block more in Mike Mularkeys exotic smashmouth offense in 2016, hes still highly likely to finish among the top five at the position in targets. Remember, opportunity at this position breeds consistency.Tristans ADP take: 53rd (55.8) is about right, though Id prefer to wait another round in standard formats.Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle SeahawksHe was the No. 3-scoring quarterback in fantasy in both 2014 and 2015 and is the third-most desirable quarterback off the board in early drafts this season, but its actually his consistency thats an even more valuable trait than his productivity. Mobile quarterbacks tend to fit the description; those who can contribute five to 10 points each week with their legs are considerably safer because their off days throwing arent so damaging to a fantasy teams competitive chances. In Wilsons case, he was the only quarterback in the league to finish within the top 20 in scoring at his position in all 16 of his games last season, and since the beginning of 2013, he has the most top-10 weekly performances at the position (26).Tristans ADP take: I tend to wait much, much longer to select a quarterback than Wilsons No. 29 (31.9) spot, and I think hes a wiser pick at least a round later, but hes closer to value at that number than most of the upper-echelon passers. Fake Yeezy Online .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. Clearance Yeezy For Sale . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. https://www.yeezychina.us/ . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Dalvin Cook wasnt about to accept all the accolades for his latest achievement.Cook ran for 225 yards and four touchdowns to become Florida States career rushing leader, and the 17th-ranked Seminoles beat Syracuse 45-14 on Saturday.Cook entered the game needing 19 yards to break Warrick Dunns 20-year old school record for rushing (3,959) and did so with a 41-yarder in the first quarter. He finished the first half with 104 yards to become just the sixth player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to reach 4,000 yards and the first to do it in three years.Im blessed to be where Im at, said Cook, who departed early in the fourth quarter after a tough hit knocked the wind out of him. Im really proud of my guys. I give all the credit to those guys (offensive line) and coaches for putting me in the position. They did a great job of giving me the opportunity to be at the top of this list, so Im just thankful.Florida State (8-3, 5-3, No. 17 CFP) won for the fifth time in six games despite four turnovers. Syracuse (4-7, 2-5) suffered its third straight loss.Syracuse starting quarterback Eric Dungey again warmed up before the opening kickoff but did not play for the second straight game. The sophomore has been out since suffering a vicious hit to the shoulder-head area in the first quarter against Clemson two weeks ago.Backup Zack Mahoney had trouble generating any consistency on offense against the Seminoles defense. Florida State intercepted two passes, registered eight sacks, and forced 10 punts in limiting the Orange to 3.2 yards per play. FSU averaged 8.6 yards per play, outgained Syracuse 654-233, and only had four more plays than the Orange.Offensively, it was just very difficult to move the ball, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. They pressured our quarterback, overpowered our offensive line. A lot of old guys against a lot of young guys. We didnt play very well.Mahoney finished 16 of 36 for 196 yards, but he did have one lucky strike. He hit Amba Etta-Tawo with a 46-yard Hail Mary on the final play of the first half. Etta-Tawo caught the ball in double coverage at the right corner of the end zone.If Syracuse had hopes the big play would provide a spark, Cook dashed those hopes with three touchdowns in the third.After tight end Ryan Izzos 39-yard reception on the first possession of the third quarter, Cook scored on an 11-yard run and added two morre scores in the period, from 17 and 8 yards. Discount Yeezy Store. . That matched his career high for TDs in a game and boosted his season total to 18.Cook also had 47 yards on Florida States third scoring drive, capping it with a 25-yard TD run for a 21-0 lead in the second.I think it is a privilege and an honor to not only have a teammate like him, but just a person like him, FSU offensive lineman Roderick Johnson said. Hes not selfish at all. My hats off to Dal.The Seminoles scored on their first two possessions. Deondre Francois hit Nyqwan Murray with a 16-yard TD and followed with a 15-yard scoring toss to Travis Rudolph.On the road, good win, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. I loved the way we started the game. We came out fast.Florida State sacked Mahoney four times in the first quarter alone, and even when Brisly Estime gave the Orange tremendous field position with a 42-yard punt return into Florida State territory, the offense sputtered with a three-and-out.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida State: The Seminoles kept their momentum going to reach an upper-tier bowl game, and if Cook keeps up his strong season and that opportunistic defense continues its stellar play, the Seminoles will be difficult to beat.Syracuse: The Orange has had a difficult time without Dungey. Winning for the fifth time this season next week on the road at Pittsburgh is necessary to even be considered for a bowl game, but if Dungey is through for the year that will be a tall task. Pitt drilled Duke 56-14 on Saturday.BIG NUMBERS: Cook has seven 100-yard games this season and boosted his career rushing total to 4,166 yards.RECEIVERS GALORE: Francois was 18 of 28 for 315 yards and completed passes to six different receivers, led by Auden Tate (five catches, 77 yards) and Rudolph (five catches, 64 yards).POLL IMPLICATIONS: With LSUs loss to Florida, Florida State will move up at least a little bit in the rankings for both the AP Top 25 and College Football Playoffs.UP NEXTFlorida State: Finishes its regular season at home next Saturday against in-state rival Florida.Syracuse: Closes its regular season on the road next Saturday against Pittsburgh.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Kekis on Twitter: www.twitter.com/Greek1947 ' ' '
