49ers | Brian Hoyer posts big numbers

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 21:47:35 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a terrible game, Hoyer started Week 3 with a brutal pick before rebounding for his best performance since leaving the Bears. Hoyer is capable of these kinds of showings, but he's also capable of what went down four days ago in Seattle. Still, if the matchup is juicy, Hoyer could offer short-term value.

49ers | Rough start for Brian Hoyer

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:00:06 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 15 of his 27 pass attempts for 99 yards and an interception in a 12-9 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a rough start to the year for Hoyer, albeit against two strong defenses. He will try to find a rhythm against the Rams in Week 3, but he is no more than a desperation QB2 at this point.

49ers | Brian Hoyer does nothing in loss

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:43:57 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 24 of his 35 pass attempts for 193 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Week 1 against the Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer didn't do much, but he did appear to have a nice little rapport with Pierre Garcon. That's a combination to watch going forward. He isn't a recommended fantasy option in any format heading into Week 2 in Seattle, however.

49ers | Brian Hoyer shreds Minnesota

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 19:11:24 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 12 of his 17 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns against the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Sunday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: We have seen quarterbacks thrive in Kyle Shanahan's offense in the past, and Hoyer isn't a bad gamble as a low-end QB2.

49ers | Brian Hoyer impressive in camp

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 11:42:12 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer has looked "very sharp" in training camp so far, according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows.

Fantasy Tip: This season is Hoyer's second exposure to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, so it should come as no surprise he is transitioning quickly. Based on recent reports, it appears he's building a solid rapport with speedster Marquise Goodwin. Hoyer shouldn't be expected to do much in fantasy this season, but as a quarterback in a Shanahan offense, he cannot be overlooked as a low-end QB2 despite his uninspiring supporting cast.

49ers | Brian Hoyer leading players' camp

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:24:31 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer is heading what is dubbed "Camp Hoyer" prior to the start of training camp. At least 10 quarterbacks, wide receivers, tight ends and running backs attended workouts Monday, July 10, and Tuesday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: Leadership shouldn't be a surprise from the veteran quarterback. It's a good sign that he and the offensive players are coming together, though, especially under a new regime. Unfortunately, Hoyer's leadership doesn't translate to fantasy football success. He's a bye-week replacement at best.

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 18:34:04 -0700

49ers | Brian Hoyer feels comfortable

Mon, 29 May 2017 14:44:40 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer is confident heading into his second stint with head coach Kyle Shanahan. Shanahan was the Cleveland Browns' offensive coordinator in 2014 when Hoyer quarterbacked the Browns. Hoyer said his familiarity with Shanahan's offense makes it easier for him to call plays, adding that it comes naturally to him now.

Fantasy Tip: Shanahan's offenses are usually exciting, but there's not a lot to be enticed with regarding San Francisco's offense, including Hoyer. The fact that he is the starter should not persuade people to draft him as a starting fantasy quarterback. At best, he is a bye-week replacement in good matchups.

49ers | C.J. Beathard third on depth chart

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 21:33:24 -0700

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer is No. 1 on the depth chart, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, followed by QB Matt Barkley and QB C.J. Beathard. "We are bringing C.J. here to develop," Shanahan said.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Hoyer is a low-end QB2 as long as he is the starter in San Francisco. Beathard projects as a career backup.

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.
