Texans | Ryan Mallet works with first-team

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:16:04 -0700

Houston Texans QB Ryan Mallet worked with the first-team offense Sunday, Aug. 2, after QB Brian Hoyer worked with the first-team Saturday, Aug. 1. "Whenever he (Bill O'Brien) feels like someone is ready to be named the starter that's what he'll do, and whatever way it goes, I have really a lot of trust and faith in him," Hoyer said. "Whatever he decides will be best for the team."

Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be a surprise to see both Hoyer and Mallet start games this year, but don't expect either quarterback to be more than a mid-range QB2.

Texans | Houston has close QB competition

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 12:38:56 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer are competing for the starting quarterback job and there is no clear favorite for the job, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. Hoyer appeared to be more comfortable than Mallett during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation since there is a chance the team could name a starter before the beginning of training camp. The winner of the competition will have some weapons to work with one offense but likely would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Texans | HOU may name QB before camp

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 10:28:12 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Ryan Mallett and Brian Hoyer are candidates for the starting quarterback job, and head coach Bill O'Brien indicated the team may name a starting quarterback before the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Mallett and Hoyer have been competing during offseason workouts, and O'Brien could make his decision based on those practices. Neither quarterback has great fantasy value and would be No. 2 fantasy quarterbacks if they win the job.

Texans | No timetable for HOU's QB competition

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 11:07:22 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett are both seeing time with the first-team offense during organized team activities, but head coach Bill O'Brien said there is no timetable for naming a starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer and Mallett likely will continue to compete for the job during training camp and the preseason. Fantasy owners should consider the winner of the job as no more than a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Texans | Brian Hoyer, Ryan Mallett splitting reps

Thu, 28 May 2015 11:14:59 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer split first-team repetitions in offseason workouts Wednesday, May 27, with QB Ryan Mallett. "The tempo (stood out)," said Hoyer. "You can tell we put a lot of work in and guys were just prepared. There weren't a lot of mental mistakes. Guys came ready to go and it was exciting -- got after it a little bit."

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer is currently listed as the de-facto starter on the Texans' depth chart, likely because Mallett is coming off a pectoral injury from last year. It's anyone's guess right now as to who will win the starting job in training camp. Hoyer has the experience edge, but Mallett has more upside. Neither quarterback will be anything more than a mediocre QB2 in fantasy, though.

Texans | Houston QBs to share reps

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:17:37 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett will split first-team repetitions once organized team activities (OTAs) begin later this month.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer may take longer to get used to a new offense, but he has more experience than Mallett. Whoever starts will be a backup fantasy quarterback and/or bye-week replacement at best.

Texans | Brian Hoyer headed to Houston

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:38:01 -0700

Updating previous reports, Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer will sign with the Houston Texans, according to a source. The deal is expected to be done within 24 hours.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has marginal upside if he wins the starting job. Arian Foster is one of the most complete backs in the league, and DeAndre Hopkins is emerging. Hoyer will be a matchup play or a midrate QB2 at best.

Jets | Brian Hoyer to meet with Jets again

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 19:35:35 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent QB Brian Hoyer's (Browns) representatives talked to the New York Jets twice Monday, March 9, and are scheduled to talk again Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer might have a better chance to unseat Geno Smith in New York, and having a target like Brandon Marshall wouldn't hurt, either. However, even if he wins a starting job in Houston or New York, he is still considered nothing more than a Top 25 option at his position.

Jets | Brian Hoyer weighing offer from NY

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 10:06:03 -0700

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer, who is expected to sign with the Houston Texans, is weighing an offer from the New York Jets Monday, March 9, according to sources. If he chooses to sign with the Jets, he'll likely compete for the starting job with QB Geno Smith. Hoyer had 3,326 yards with 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in 2014 for the Browns.

Fantasy Tip: Wherever Hoyer lands in free agency, he'll have more intriguing offensive weapons around him, especially in New York, where Eric Decker and Brandon Marshall figure to be the top two wideouts. However, he'll be competing for a starting gig yet again, which will keep him as a low-end QB2 for fantasy drafts.

Texans | Brian Hoyer likely to Houston

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 06:29:36 -0700

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Brian Hoyer is going to sign with the Houston Texans, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer seems to fit the system pretty well, and he'll have something he hasn't had much experience with - an elite running back. Hoyer is a midrange QB2 with some upside if they can add a receiver to replace the likely departing Andre Johnson.
