49ers | Brian Hoyer wants to start

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 20:14:33 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer said he won't be content being a backup quarterback, and he believes he will have a leg up in a quarterback competition because he is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's system.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, Hoyer has to be considered the frontrunner to start for the 49ers next year, but he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end QB2.

49ers | No QB for San Francisco at No. 2?

Sun, 12 Mar 2017 17:55:14 -0700

The San Francisco 49ers are likely looking at positions other than quarterback with the No. 2 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after signing QB Brian Hoyer and QB Matt Barkley, according to Bucky Brooks of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: If the 49ers do pass on one of the top quarterback prospects, it will likely mean Hoyer opens the year as the starter, but he would only be a low-end QB2 candidate.

49ers | San Francisco still in QB market

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 08:20:16 -0800

The San Francisco 49ers will continue to look for quarterbacks this offseason despite signing Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in free agency, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, who added he doesn't know whether the team will address the position in the free agency or the draft.

Fantasy Tip: This news hardly qualifies as a surprise, as neither Hoyer nor Barkley were signed to be the long-term answer. It does reduce the need for the 49ers to use the second pick of the draft next month to take a quarterback, although it certainly doesn't take them out of the market. Given the lack of a blue-chip passer in the draft, however, it appears the most likely scenario at the moment involves starting Hoyer in 2017 and hoping Kirk Cousins will sign with San Francisco next offseason.

49ers | Brian Hoyer to join 49ers

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 12:04:28 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers Wednesday, March 8, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has a good chance to be the starting quarterback in 2017 depending on what other quarterbacks are added to the roster. He has had some success as a starting quarterback during his career but should only be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback in deeper fantasy leagues.

49ers | Brian Hoyer on San Francisco's radar?

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 19:22:09 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Even if Hoyer were to end up with the starting gig in San Francisco, he would be a low-end QB2 at best.

Bears | Brian Hoyer could stay as mentor

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 11:51:01 -0800

Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer is a logical choice to be re-signed if the Bears draft a rookie quarterback, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeff Dickerson. Hoyer is open to mentoring younger players and also still has some fuel left in the tank after throwing over 1,400 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions in six games last year.

Fantasy Tip: Chicago does need to address their quarterback situation. Jay Cutler is not the answer and Hoyer is aging. For fantasy purposes, it's best to avoid drafting any Chicago quarterback, although Cutler and/or Hoyer are serviceable bye-week replacements and streaming options if necessary.
