Texans | Brian Hoyer named starter

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 06:16:25 -0700

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer was named the starting quarterback for the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer doesn't have a lot to work with after Arian Foster's (groin) injury, and he's a middling QB2.

Texans | Houston not ready to name starting QB

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:19:05 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett have been competing for the starting quarterback job, but head coach Bill O'Brien wants to see them play more before making a decision. "I need to see a little bit more and I want to give Ryan a chance to start a game, and put some more thought into it. Then make a decision at some point whether it's next week or the week after. At some point, we'll make a decision," O'Brien said.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer and Mallett should see solid playing time in the next two preseason games, which could help in the decision for O'Brien. Neither is a strong fantasy option, so the winner of the competition will probably be only a No. 2 quarterback.

Texans | HOU QB announcement still not set

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:58:42 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett still don't know who will start this season. Head coach Bill O'Brien said he doesn't know when a starter will be named. Hoyer started the Texans' first preseason game, but O'Brien said Mallett would start the second preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: This is a true quarterback battle. The decision may not be made until after the final preseason game. Hoyer may have an advantage considering he has more experience. Plus, he started the first preseason game. Neither should be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer is expected to start Saturday, Aug. 15, against the San Francisco 49ers.

Texans | No favorite for Houston QB job

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 09:23:18 -0700

Houston Texans QBs Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett remain in a close competition for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Bill O'Brien. O'Brien said he believes both quarterbacks could start for the team.

Fantasy Tip: The Texans likely will use the preseason to determine if Hoyer or Mallett wil start this season. Neither is a great quarterback, and they should not be seen as more than a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

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.

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.
