Bears | Brian Hoyer goes to IR

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 15:25:05 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a fractured forearm Monday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Jay Cutler has been cleared to play, so he'll take over for Hoyer with Matt Barkely now serving as the backup. Cutler has been underwhelming this season and during his Bears tenure, though, and the Chicago quarterback situation is one to avoid.

Bears | Brian Hoyer back in six weeks

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 06:15:59 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) underwent surgery on his left arm Monday, Oct. 24, and his timetable has been reduced to six weeks instead of eight.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Barkley is likely to be under center in the near term. The Bears take on the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8, and Barkley shouldn't be a starting consideration in fantasy.

Bears | Brian Hoyer to undergo surgery Sunday

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 07:25:27 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is scheduled to undergo surgery Sunday, Oct. 23, on his broken left forearm. He will be sidelined for at least eight weeks and could be placed on injured reserve.

Fantasy Tip: Matt Barkley will serve as Chicago's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future, with Jay Cutler (thumb) out indefinitely, but he is not a viable fantasy option. It had been hoped that Hoyer could make a late-season return but the odds of that happening now appear slim.

Bears | Brian Hoyer likely to undergo surgery

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 07:13:25 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) is expected to undergo surgery to repair the broken radius bone in his left arm suffered during Week 7's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to a source. A late-season return has not been ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: QB Jay Cutler (thumb) remains out indefinitely, so Matt Barkley will be Chicago's primary signal-caller for the foreseeable future. However, Barkley is not a viable fantasy option and all Bears pass-catchers are likely to experience a dip in production for as long as he's in there.

Bears | Brian Hoyer has broken left arm

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 19:27:33 -0700

Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was diagnosed with a broken left arm, according to head coach John Fox.

Fantasy Tip: With Jay Cutler (thumb) still out indefinitely, Matt Barkley is now in control of the Bears' offense. Hoyer can consider himself lucky in the sense he suffered the injury on his non-throwing arm, but he is still looking at an extended absence in all likelihood. Barkley has looked competent so far, but his presence is still a downgrade for all Chicago pass-catchers.

Bears | Brian Hoyer out of game

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:37:23 -0700

Updating previous items, Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (forearm) will not return to the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers due to a forearm injury.

Fantasy Tip: Not much is known about how long Hoyer will be out, although things did not look good when Hoyer left for the locker room. For now, QB Matt Barkley is in the game, and QB Jay Cutler may have just gotten a reprieve in the short term. Stay tuned to see what the Bears do for their next move.

Bears | Brian Hoyer injured

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer (arm) was shaken up in the second quarter of the Thursday, Oct. 20, game against the Green Bay Packers. QB Matt Barkley was seen warming up on the sidelines, but Hoyer was also seen walking the sidelines before heading to the locker room holding his left arm.

Fantasy Tip: This is a fluid situation, so stay tuned for further details on whether Hoyer comes back in or Barkley has to finish the game.

Bears | Brian Hoyer on a roll

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 16:48:29 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer is the first Bears quarterback since at least 1960 to throw for at least 300 passing yards in four straight games.

Fantasy Tip: Not bad for a backup quarterback eh? Hoyer has taken the starting job from Jay Cutler and run away with it. It seems unlikely that Cutler would retain the starting position when he returns to good health. Hoyer's success can't be ignored. He's a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 this week facing a subpar Green Bay Packers pass defense.

Bears | Brian Hoyer surpasses 300-yard mark

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 15:02:39 -0700

Chicago Bears QB Brian Hoyer went 30-for-49 for 302 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has thrown for at least 300 yards in every game since becoming the starting quarterback and has six touchdowns during that span. He will be facing the Green Bay Packers on short rest in Week 7 and can be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
