Quarterbacks
We know the 1,570 passing yards put up by Steve DeBerg in 1978 is not worth writing home about. The only bright spot is that he only played 12 games so maybe there is a faint glimmer of light at the end of this dark tunnel. He totaled 110.50 fantasy points but it is his 9.21 fantasy average per game that we should focus on. It isn't all that bad. Coming in for 16 games Scott Bull threw for 651 yards and added a touchdown for good measure.
