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 playing on Wild Card Weekend of the 2022 NFL playoffs.

He also captures the relative value of starters on both sides of the ball for every wild-card 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.

Note: Each player’s value is relative to their worth to their team, the depth behind them, and other context-rich situations.
