Conversely, who are some consistent guys on which you can rely to put up at least decent numbers regularly?
To me, J-Roll, B-Up, and Uggla are very streaky and can help you win weeks by themselves sometimes.
For consistency, Miggy and some pitchers like Verlander and Kershaw can mostly always be relied on.
These are some obvious ones, but I'm interested in some "deeper" ones from you guys.

Pedro Alvarez comes to mind as a streaky player. A-Ram and Mark Tex are known for being 2nd half players but Tex is injured so who knows?

Generally high power/high strikeout guys re going to be the most streaky.
