Brian Hoyer inks one-year deal with the Patriots

The Patriots are re-signing veteran QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Hoyer will return to New England on a one-year deal. The Patriots now have Cam Newton, Mac Jones, Jarrett Stidham, and Hoyer on the QB depth chart. The 35-year-old started one game for the Patriots in 2020, completing 15-of-24 passes for 130 passing yards and one interception. Hoyer served as Patriots third-string quarterback in 2020 and will compete with Stidham for the third-string spot in 2021.

Brian Hoyer benched for Jarrett Stidham in second half Monday

Patriots quarterback Brian Hoyer has been benched in favor of Jarrett Stidham late in the third quarter of the team's Monday night matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

Hoyer started for the Patriots on Monday because Cam Newton rested positive for COVID-19, but he completed 15 of his 24 passes for 130 yards and an interception through nearly three quarters of play. Stidham threw a touchdown pass on his first possession.

Brian Hoyer expected to start versus Chiefs in Week 4

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Brian Hoyer will be the Patriots' quarterback if their Week 4 game against the Chiefs is played on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Cam Newton tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, which has caused the NFL to postpone Patriots-Chiefs until Tuesday (assuming there are no more positive tests). Hoyer's presence is obviously a major downgrade to all New England skill players. Chiefs D/ST is certainly in play to be used if this game is played.

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.
