Abstract
This project evaluates quarterback performance in the National Football League. With the availability of player tracking data, there exists the capability to assess various options that are available to quarterbacks and the expected points resulting from each option. The quarterback’s execution is then measured against the optimal available option. Since decision making does not rely on the quality of teammates, a quarterback metric is introduced that provides a novel perspective on an understudied aspect of quarterback assessment.
