Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Logs five completions Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer completed 5-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: Logs 1,287 passing yards in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer completed 123 of 211 passing attempts for 1,287 passing yards to go along with four TDs and four picks during the 2017 regular season.

All but four of his completions and 42 of his passing yards were accrued while Hoyer was a member of the 49ers, with whom the 32-year-old played six games this past season before being released and then signed to a three-year deal by New England, where he played from 2009 to 2011. His experience and familiarity with the organization provides the team with some short-term backup stability behind 40-year-old-starter Tom Brady, while Hoyer's two remaining seasons under contract with the team presumably paves to the way for the franchise to draft and develop another young signal-caller to groom now that the Patriots' 2014 second-rounder, Jimmy Garoppolo, is helming San Francisco's offense.

Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Signs on as Brady backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoyer signed a three-year contract with the Patriots on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of 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 | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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. Then again, one would think he would've been included in part of the trade in the first place if the Patriots had any interest in going down that avenue.
