Quarterbacks
With only 3,169 passing yards Archie Manning was not really a fantasy factor in 1979. He played a full season with the New Orleans Saints 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 234.05 fantasy points likely didn't help any fantasy owners with thier leagues.
