  • Hoyer completed five of 13 passes for 32 yards and a TD in Thursday's 37-20 preseason win over the Eagles. To date, seventh-round rookie Danny Etling hasn't made much of a push to supplant Hoyer as the Patriots' No. 2 QB. With Tom Brady entrenched as the team's starter, Hoyer is only worth rostering in formats with deep enough benches to secure insurance for key starters. In the event that Brady suffers an injury, Hoyer is capable enough to produce decent fantasy numbers while helming the New England offense, but his upside on that front obviously can't match Brady's.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Plays into fourth quarter
    By RotoWire Staff

    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.
