Fantasy QB Trivia (1 Viewer)

There have been 9 QB that have scored 1,000 fantasy points over a span of 3 seasons using the FBG scoring system (passing TD = 4 pts, passing yard = .05 pts, INT = -1 pt).(Note that some QB may have done it more than once but they are only listed once.)Include a list of 9 QB and I will say how many each person got right. You are playing for bragging rights. Have at it.

 
From when to when?
From the dawn of time until this afternoon. The best 3 years of a QB's career. 9 of them had a consecutive 3-year span where they scored a total of 1,000 or more fantasy points in those seasons.

Well, Tick got them all but threw in 2 extra guys. And since the 2 extra guys were the next 2 highest scorers, we'll give it to him.Culpepper 02-04 1124.2

Marino 84-86 1121.95

Favre 95-97 1103.6

Cunningham 93-95 1098.4

As for the official trivia contest, that was Jason's doing, and I'm not sure when he's planning on having another one . . .

Did you subtract for INTs? I didn't.

I got my data from the histroical data dominator, and I'm pretty sure Doug uses the regular FBG formula for QBs.
 
Ah - I've never used the historical data dominator - I just use the pro-football-reference database for these types of things.

The historical data dominator pulls data fromthe same database, so they *should* yield the same results.

I'm guessing I used the wrong formula for points. I know I didn't include INTs, which is the most likely problem.
 
Hmm, and only two Super Bowl championships in those 27 seasons
Using an average of 30 teams per season (there are 32 now, but I don't feel like digging for better accuracy for this exercise), if all teams were equal a team would win a SB once every 30 seasons:1 SB winner / 30 teams = 3.33%.

Over 27 seasons, then, the average team would win the SB 0.9 times:

3.33% x 27 = 0.9 SB wins (or, 27 SB winners out of 30 teams = 0.9, same thing).

As Valhallan points out, there were 2 SB winners in our QB group during the 27 seasons in which they generated their elite fantasy stats. That actually compares favorably to the 0.9 average.

I'm not sure any real conclusion can be drawn one way or another from this, but I'm not surprised at only 2 SB winners coming from this sample. As most fantasy players know, gaudy passing stats often result from deficiencies in the running game and/or defense, and this imbalance makes it tough to win consistently. Especially against better balanced teams in the playoffs.

Couch, I love your spirit with this. However, I think "most fantasy players" don't know the difference between gaudy stats and on-the-field success. Statmongers tend to worship accumulators like Manning and Culpepper while ignoring consistent leaders like Brady, Delhomme, and Roethlisberger.Their loss, honestly. Consistency is our friend :)
