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.

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:07:21 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) has interest from six teams, including the Denver Broncos, who he is still meeting with Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: If Hoyer can land in a spot with a chance to start, he'll be a low-end QB2 in fantasy.

NFL | A few teams eyeing Brian Hoyer

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 15:19:12 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) has drawn interest from five to six teams, according to a source. The Denver Broncos and New York Jets may have an advantage, though. They could give Hoyer the best chance to start, and Hoyer has already visited both teams. The Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers are two teams that could also be interested.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer produces more like a backup, and even if he starts somewhere he shouldn't be drafted as a starter in fantasy.

Broncos | Brian Hoyer visiting Broncos

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 10:25:27 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) will visit the Denver Broncos Wednesday, April 20, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has that playoff meltdown in most recent memories, but he had a winning record the last two years on bad teams. If he lands a starting gig, he'll be a low-end QB2 in fantasy that could be used in the right bye-week matchup.

Jets | Ryan Fitzpatrick still Jets' top priority

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 15:58:45 -0700

Free-agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) remains the New York Jets' No. 1 priority despite free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) visiting Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to imagine Fitzpatrick not eventually re-signing with the Jets, especially considering the extra money New York received when D'Brickashaw Ferguson retired. Fitzpatrick is coming off a career year and will be a borderline QB1 if he re-signs with the Jets.

Jets | Brian Hoyer visiting Jets

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 06:23:28 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) will visit the New York Jets Tuesday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: The Jets are at a stalemate with Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Hoyer could slide in and steal the gig. Wherever he lands, he's little more than a fantasy backup.

Steelers | Brian Hoyer of interest to Pittsburgh

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 05:38:56 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) has the interest of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer would obviously be a backup in Pittsburgh, but there could be a better spot available for him to compete to start. He would be a fantasy backup if he lands in one of those spots.
