Quarterbacks
With only 2,824 passing yards Steve Grogan was not really a fantasy factor in 1978. He played a full season with the New England Patriots 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 270.10 fantasy points likely didn't help any fantasy owners with thier leagues.
