Until Hoyer finds meaningful playing time, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Being let go by Las Vegas

    The Raiders are slated to release Hoyer, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hoyer appeared in three games (including one start) with the Raiders during the 2023 regular season, en route to completing 23 of 42 passing attempts for 231 yards and two interceptions. With a new GM (Tom Telesco) on board in 2024, Las Vegas will move on from the 38-year-old signal-caller, who now represents an option for teams looking for a veteran NFL backup with ample starting experience.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Inactive Monday night

    Hoyer is inactive for Monday night's game against the Lions. Hoyer drew the start in the Raiders' Week 7 loss to the Bears, but with Jimmy Garoppolo (back) having returned to the lineup, Hoyer has been deemed inactive Monday. As a result, Aidan O'Connell is slated to serve as the team's No. 2 QB versus Detroit.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Poor showing in Chicago

    Hoyer completed 17 of 32 passes for 129 yards and two interceptions in Sunday's 30-12 loss to the Bears. Getting the start with Jimmy Garoppolo (back) inactive, Hoyer struggled to move the ball, and the Raiders generated only two field goals while the veteran QB was under center. He got replaced by Aidan O'Connell late in the game after throwing a pick-six, and per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the switch wasn't the result of an injury to Hoyer but simply a product of the lopsided score. Garoppolo is expected back in Week 8 against the Lions, but Hoyer might not even dress as the No. 2 quarterback after this dismal performance.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: On track to start

    Hoyer is in line to start Sunday's game against the Bears in place of the injured Jimmy Garoppolo (back), sources tell Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Head coach Josh McDaniels never officially confirmed a Week 7 starting quarterback after Garoppolo was ruled out for the game following Friday's practice, but Hoyer looks like he'll get his first start of the season after rookie Aidan O'Connell previously drew the assignment when Garoppolo was sidelined for a Week 4 loss to the Chargers due to a concussion. Hoyer was active as the No. 2 quarterback for this past Sunday's game against the Patriots and stepped in capably when Garoppolo exited the contest in the second half. He proved to be a competent game manager as the Raiders finished out the 21-17 win, completing six of 10 pass attempts for 102 yards while committing no turnovers. Adam Schefter of ESPN relays that Garoppolo is expected to return to the lineup for the Raiders' Week 8 game against the Lions, so Hoyer's run atop the depth chart will likely last just one contest.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Possible starter with Jimmy G out

    Either Hoyer or Aidan O'Connell will start Sunday against the Bears, as Jimmy Garoppolo (back) was ruled out Friday. O'Connell got the starting nod when Garoppolo missed Week 4 due to a concussion, but Hoyer has been working as Garoppolo's primary backup, and the veteran came on in relief after Garoppolo hurt his back Week 6. Coach Josh McDaniels said both available quarterbacks have enjoyed a strong week of practice, but he has yet to name a starter for Sunday's battle of backup quarterbacks against a Bears team that's expected to deploy Tyson Bagent under center with Justin Fields (thumb) unavailable.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Takes over for injured starter

    Hoyer stepped in for injured starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (back) against the Patriots on Sunday, completing six of 10 pass attempts for 102 yards with no touchdowns or turnovers in the 21-17 win. Garoppolo went down awkwardly after a pass attempt late in the second quarter favoring his back. The oft-injured quarterback did not return after halftime, leaving Hoyer to finish off the narrow victory over New England. The severity of Garoppolo's injury likely will be revealed in the coming days after the quarterback was taken to a local hospital to have his back examined. Hoyer could remain the No. 2 option even if the Raiders' starter can't suit up for the team's next game, as was the case Week 4 when rookie Aidan O'Connell was elevated from the practice squad to start over the veteran. Both Hoyer and O'Connell would be risky fantasy plays should either be asked to start against Chicago in Week 7.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Favorite for backup role

    Hoyer is the favorite to win the backup job to Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) and will be part of the team's quarterback rotation at OTAs, Tashan Reed of The Athletic reports. Hoyer signed a two-year deal with the Raiders in April with the expectation that he would earn the backup job. It's a role that could be fairly significant if Garoppolo is not recovered from foot surgery by Week 1, although he is expected to be. Hoyer played under head coach Josh McDaniels in New England and should be familiar with the team's offense.

  • Raiders' Brian Hoyer: Inks with Raiders

    The Raiders signed Hoyer to a two-year contract Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Hoyer spent the last three years in New England, and he now reunites with coach Josh McDaniels in Las Vegas. The 37-year-old quarterback looks primed to operate as the top backup to Jimmy Garoppolo, though that could potentially change depending on the team's actions in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Headed to IR

    The Patriots have placed Hoyer (concussion) on IR, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Now that Hoyer is slated to miss the next four games, the Patriots approach Week 5 action with Mac Jones iffy with an ankle injury, with Bailey Zappe thus in line to start at QB in Jones' place if he's unavailable Sunday versus the Lions. Meanwhile, Garrett Gilbert is a candidate to be elevated from the team's practice squad in advance of the contest.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Not practicing Thursday

    Hoyer (concussion) remained sidelined during Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of reports. Mac Jones (ankle), who was limited Wednesday, was present for Thursday's practice, but his status for Sunday's game against the Lions has yet to be cemented. Friday's injury report will reveal whether Jones and/or Hoyer will head into the weekend with a chance to play Week 5, but if neither are available rookie Bailey Zappe would be in line to fill in as the Patriots' starting QB versus Detroit.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Not practicing Wednesday

    Hoyer (concussion) wasn't spotted at practice Wednesday, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Fellow quarterback Mac Jones (ankle) was present for the session, but it's unclear if he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Lions. Meanwhile, Hoyer's status for the contest is also uncertain, and if neither of New England's top signal-callers are available this weekend, rookie Bailey Zappe would draw the start against Detroit.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Won't return Sunday

    Hoyer (head) won't return to Sunday's game against the Packers. It remains to be seen if Hoyer will be placed in the NFL's concussion protocol, but his status will need to be monitored ahead of next weekend's contest against the Lions. With Mac Jones (ankle) inactive versus Green Bay, Bailey Zappe is slated to remain at QB for the Patriots for rest of the day Sunday.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Set to start Sunday

    With Mac Jones (ankle) ruled out, Hoyer will start Sunday's game against the Packers, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports. Though Jones made progress throughout the week, a reported high-ankle sprain will force him to miss at least one game. Hoyer thus represents a Week 4 lineup option for those who roster Jones or are in need of short-term help in two-QB formats. That said, in the absence of their starting signal-caller, Lazar anticipates that the Patriots figure to lean on the running back duo of Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson this weekend, a plausible scenario that limits Hoyer's fantasy upside.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Week 4 Waiver Priority List

    Mac Jones (ankle) is likely out for several weeks, so you might want to consider adding Hoyer in deep Superflex and two-quarterback leagues. He isn't likely to be a difference maker for Fantasy managers, but he could be useful during the upcoming bye weeks, depending on how long Jones is out. In Superflex and two-quarterback leagues, Hoyer is worth up to 10 percent of your remaining FAB.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Could fill in for Jones

    Hoyer is a candidate to start Sunday's game against the Pacers with Mac Jones dealing with a high-ankle sprain that is likely to keep him sidelined for the contest, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Though a timetable for Jones' injury recovery hasn't yet been outlined, Hoyer appears on track to fill in at quarterback for the team Week 4, at a minimum. If that's the case, the veteran signal-caller will be an option for those who roster Jones or who play in two-QB fantasy formats.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Staying with Pats

    Hoyer is signing a a two-year, $4 million contract to stay with the Patriots, Jeremy Fowler of reports. The 36-year-old backup QB has played for seven NFL teams, but the Patriots are the only one he's spent more than two seasons with. Despite that, Hoyer has made just one start in a New England uniform, and each of his five appearances last season came off the bench behind Mac Jones, who will be back in 2022 as the team's starting QB. That leaves Hoyer as the favorite for the No. 2 job, though the Patriots could add some competition before camp.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Returns to active roster

    Hoyer was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Mike Reiss of reports. Hoyer hit the list Tuesday but has cleared the necessary protocols. He'll be on the sideline for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars.

  • Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Promoted to active roster

    Hoyer agreed to a deal with the Patriots on Saturday that will promote him to the 53-man roster, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Hoyer will serve as the backup to Mac Jones under center, as Jarrett Stidham (back) remains on the reserve/PUP list. The journeryman Hoyer last saw action on the field in Week 4 of 2020. He completed 15 of 25 passes for 130 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the contest.

  • Brian Hoyer: Headed back to practice squad

    Hoyer reverted from the active roster back to the practice squad Monday, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. Hoyer was elevated to the active roster Sunday in order to serve as the team's backup quarterback. He's likely to return to the same role for the New England in its Week 2 matchup against the Jets, and he could be signed to the active roster with Jarrett Stidham (back) sidelined through at least Week 6.

  • Brian Hoyer: Joins Patriots' practice squad

    Hoyer agreed Wednesday to join New England's initial practice squad, Mike Reiss of reports. As expected, the veteran quarterback -- who was let go during the team's Tuesday roster cuts -- has returned to New England in short order. Once New England's roster shuffling settles down, look for Hoyer to rejoin the team's active roster in order to serve as Mac Jones' top backup heading into Week 1.
