Player Outlook

Brian Hoyer will return to the Patriots this season as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tom Brady. Barring any injury to Brady, we don't expect to see Hoyer play much in 2018. He should not be drafted in the majority of leagues.

Player News
  • Hoyer completed 16 of 23 passes for 144 yards in Thursday's preseason opener against Washington. Hoyer got the start and stayed in the game until midway through the fourth quarter, eventually engineering a pair of touchdown drives against Washington's scrubs. While one bad outing won't cost Hoyer the No. 2 quarterback job, he could face pressure from seventh-round rookie Danny Etling if the next few weeks don't look better.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Signs on as Brady backup
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer signed a three-year contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. With the team having traded Jacoby Brissett to the Colts prior to the start of the season and Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers earlier this week, the Patriots had a pressing need for a backup quarterback heading into their Week 9 bye. Hoyer, who played for New England from 2009 to 2011, brings familiarity with the organization -- as well as NFL starting experience -- to the table, thus giving the Patriots a viable insurance option in the event of an injury to starter Tom Brady. Moreover, the duration of the 32-year-old's deal creates a scenario that could possibly lead to the franchise drafting a young quarterback this spring to develop behind Brady.

  • Brian Hoyer: Visit with New England on tap
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer is slated to visit the Patriots on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Hoyer, who was released by the 49ers earlier this week following the team's acquisition of Jimmy Garoppolo from the Patriots, began his NFL career in New England, where he played from 2009 through 2011. Assuming Hoyer signs with the Patriots, he'll serve as Tom Brady's new backup at quarterback.

  • Brian Hoyer: Released by 49ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer was released by the 49ers on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hoyer's release comes in the wake of San Francisco trading for ex-Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier Monday evening. Since New England is now in need of a backup signal caller, it's certainly possible Hoyer could resurface with the team he started his career with back in 2009.

  • 49ers' Brian Hoyer: Will continue as backup QB
    By RotoWire Staff

    Hoyer was replaced as the 49ers' starting quarterback for C.J. Beathard after Sunday's 26-24 loss at Washington. When he got the hook during the second quarter, Hoyer was 4-for-11 passing for 34 yards. Meanwhile, C.J. Beathard led the 49ers to scores on four of his seven drives, completing 19 of 36 passes for 245 yards, one touchdown and one interception. With Hoyer expected to don a hat and clipboard moving forward, he's free to jettison in most formats.
