Quarterbacks
With only 2,294 passing yards Gary Danielson was not really a fantasy factor in 1978. He played a full season with the Detroit Lions which makes his total astounding. It would be nice if we could fail this badly at our job and continue to get paid even the NFL minimum salary. His 178.00 fantasy points likely didn't help any fantasy owners with thier leagues.
