Brian Hoyer: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Although coach Mike Pettine didn't name the Browns' starting quarterback for Week 15 on Monday, ESPN's Tony Grossi suggests that the team appears to be leaning toward starting Johnny Manziel over Hoyer on Sunday against the Bengals.

Hoyer is slated to start Sunday's game against the Colts, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hoyer, who has thrown one TD pass and has been picked off six times over his last 15 quarters, was replaced by rookie Johnny Manziel in the fourth period of this past Sunday's loss to Buffalo, but despite his recent struggles, Hoyer will remain the starter for the 7-5 Browns in Week 14. Hoyer thus remains an option in QB-heavy formats, but with a 0:5 TD:INT ratio over his last two games, he'd be a speculative fantasy play this weekend.
Browns' coach Mike Pettine said Monday that he'll wait until Wednesday to announce a decision on Week 14's starting quarterback, leaving Hoyer's status in limbo for the time being, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

With the jury still out on Brandon Weeden, the signing of Hoyer by the Browns sparked a bit of conversation at the time of the announcement. He received his first career start last season, though his play in his two games of action failed to change the perception he's going to be anything more than a reserve. He completed 30-of-53 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. The support behind Weeden has grown since Hoyer arrived in Cleveland and he'll battle Jason Campbell for the backup duties this season.

2012

Hoyer, who is ticketed for free agency after this season, has developed into a trusted backup for the Patriots, but if another team suffers an injury at QB, then the Patriots could consider dangling Hoyer, if they feel that Ryan Mallett is ready to assume the No. 2 QB job. That's something that the team is presumably still evaluating, however.

2011

Though the Patriots drafted fellow QB Ryan Mallett this past April, he's viewed as more of a developmental project than an immediate threat to Hoyer's gig as Tom Brady's top backup. In any case, Hoyer remains next in line for snaps in the event of an injury to Brady.

2010

As an undrafted free agent, the odds were stacked against Hoyer last year, but he'll head into the 2010 season as Tom Brady's top backup once again unless the Patriots make a move to add some veteran QB depth.

2009

Like most undrafted QBs he's a bit of a project, but he enters a Patriots' system where he has a chance to be methodically coached up. If he sticks as a rookie though, he'd either have to beat out Matt Gutierrez or settle for a spot on the practice squad.
