I'm not sure how you'd do it, but it would be cool if you could make something like this for baseball as well.

I'm sure my dad would do well on this quiz. He obsesses over the stats and wins all the leagues he's in about 60-70% of the time. I only got 12.

surprised Jamal Lewis (with his 2000 yard season) of the Ravens isn't on here...and Dickerson with his 2105 isn't higher.

Mario was an omission that has been fixed.

Favre is a little surprising, since his variety of spray and pray does well in fantasy. He was hampered by lack of rushing yards and lots of interceptions. Almost made the list with 339 points in 1995

Aikman was not even close. If he played today, he would be near the bottom of fantasy quarterbacks. Even in his era he was only an average fantasy quarterback. Look at the fantasy stats for Emmitt Smith and you will see why.

Quizmaster: Did you go back and use statistics from the past and plug them into todays formulas? The reason I ask is I didn't know fantasy football existed back in '84 when Dan Marino was playing.

Cool. I thought Don Hutson's 1942 season would be on the list but then I went back and plugged his numbers into the formula. Close but no dice.

Extrapolate Hutson's numbers over a 16 game schedule and he's tops on the list. Interesting.
