Bears | Brian Hoyer concerned about chemistry?

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 19:38:56 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer has pointed out throughout the week that he has not had many reps with WR Alshon Jeffery this season.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lack of reps, you can expect Hoyer to look Jeffery's way early and often against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3, assuming Jeffery can play through a knee injury. If Jeffery is on the field, he has WR2 upside in all formats.

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) agreed to terms with the Chicago Bears Saturday, April 30.

Broncos | No Brian Hoyer for Denver

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:11:11 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez does have the edge right now and is the safer starting option for the Broncos in 2016. It's important for Lynch to become acclimated to Denver's offense and the feel of the NFL this year. Lynch is likely the future of Denver's quarterback position, but his growth process will take some time. Sanchez is not a QB1 and should only be started as a bye-week replacement in good matchups.

NFL | Brian Hoyer will wait

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 16:15:16 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) will wait to see what happens with the NFL Draft this week before deciding where to sign, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: There are a handful of teams at best for which Hoyer could start, but from a fantasy perspective he should definitely be drafted as a backup.

Jets | NYJ doing due diligence with Brian Hoyer

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 10:15:06 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is receiving some interest from the New York Jets, but Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan said the team is doing due diligence on Hoyer. Maccagnan also said talks to retain free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick may take some time.

Fantasy Tip: The writing is on the wall right there that the Jets are still looking to retain Fitzpatrick, and it's a matter of negotiating. Hoyer could be a low-end QB2 if he lands a starting gig. Fitzpatrick is a solid QB2 if he returns to the Jets.

NFL | Brian Hoyer taking his time

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:07:41 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) finished his meeting with the Denver Broncos and took a physical Thursday, April 21, but there is no rush for him to sign with a team.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has another visit with an undisclosed team lined up, but the Broncos and New York Jets make the most sense to sign him. He'd likely compete for a starting job with either of those two teams, but Hoyer has been so inconsistent in his career that he'd be nothing more than a low-end fantasy backup.
