Quarterbacks
With only 3,586 passing yards Roger Staubach was not really a fantasy factor in 1979. He played a full season with the Dallas Cowboys 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 277.50 fantasy points likely didn't help any fantasy owners with thier leagues. Coming in for 16 games Danny White threw for 267 yards and added a touchdown for good measure.
