Sean Koerner — our Director of Predictive Analytics and the seventh-most accurate fantasy football ranker of this season — projected the spread value of every quarterback and key player in the Divisional Round of the 2022 NFL playoffs.

He also captures the relative value of starters on both sides of the ball for every team using a color scale, adding the approximate number of points a select few are worth to the spread. We've outlined those in order of this round's matchups below the ranking of quarterback values.
