Quarterbacks
With only 2,448 passing yards Doug Williams was not really a fantasy factor in 1979. He played a full season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 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 200.30 fantasy points likely didn't help any fantasy owners with thier leagues.
