Brian Hoyer could be the odd man out of Patriots' QBs

Brian Hoyer could be the odd man out of the Patriots' QBs. "Hoyer finds himself in an interesting spot with Cam Newton and Jarrett Stidham in New England," per Mike Reiss of ESPN.

Fantasy Impact

Hoyer was released by the Colts earlier this off-season once the team signed QB Philip Rivers. With the Patriots signing Newton, Hoyer once again finds himself in a similar spot. New England could opt to keep only two quarterbacks, making Hoyer the odd man out. This decision will most likely depend on Newton's health. Hoyer will enter camp competing with Stidham for the backup QB spot.

Brian Hoyer, Jarrett Stidham working out together this off-season

Mike Reiss of ESPN reports Patriots quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham have been working out together this off-season.

Fantasy Impact

Reiss writes the two QBs have been "fiercely competitive" while also helping each other get better. Stidham remains the favorite to start Week 1 against the Dolphins. It sounds as if Hoyer is doing his best to help bring the youngster along.

Brian Hoyer inks one-year deal with the Patriots

Brian Hoyer and the Patriots have reached an agreement on a one-year, $1.05 million contract. He will receive $2 million guaranteed from the Colts and Patriots.

Fantasy Impact

Hoyer will join the Patriots for the third time in his career, and give the team a quarterback who is familiar with New England’s offense. He threw for 372 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions across four games with the Colts in 2019. Hoyer will compete with Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler for the Patriots’ starting quarterback job. Whichever player emerges as the starter is a borderline QB2, and is mainly an option in super-flex and two-quarterback league formats.

Brian Hoyer being released by the Colts

The Colts are releasing quarterback Brian Hoyer.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Hoyer was released by Indianapolis on Saturday. The Colts recently signed Phillip Rivers to be the team's starting quarterback, and ultimately decided to move on from Hoyer. The 34-year-old threw for 372 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions across four games in 2019. The veteran QB will look to latch onto another team.

Brian Hoyer throws three interceptions in Week 10 loss

Brian Hoyer completed 18-of-39 passes for 204 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Colts’ 16-12, Week 10 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Hoyer did not look good on Sunday as the got the start against the struggling Dolphins with Jacoby Brissett sidelined with a knee injury. If Brissett is healthy enough in Week 11 look for Hoyer to find a seat back on the bench and if he does end up playing he should be left on the waiver wire.
