Player Notes
Jan 19 12:20am ET

New England Patriots backup quarterback Brian Hoyer is preparing to pitch in for the AFC title game against the Jaguars with Tom Brady (hand) nursing a hand injury, although a source said Brady's hand "should be OK" for Sunday. Hoyer took all the practice repetitions in practice Thursday with Brady sitting out. It'd be a huge shock if Brady isn't under center against the Jaguars. His jammed hand isn't believed to be serious, although he probably won't be able to pick apart the Jacksonville secondary like he did to the Titans in the Divisional Round.

Nov 2 10:23am ET

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots QB Brian Hoyer will make $7.776 million in 2017, $3.815 million in 2018 and $3.05 million in 2019. The 49ers owe him $7.3 million and $2.9 million in 2017 and 2018, and the Patriots will pay him $476,000 and $915,000, respectively.

Nov 1 12:23pm ET

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (49ers) agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the New England Patriots on Wednesday, Nov. 1. Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Nov 1 9:53am ET

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (49ers) is visiting the New England Patriots Wednesday, Nov. 1, and he's expected to sign with them.

Oct 30 9:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer is anticipated to be released by the team. Hoyer signed as a free agent during the offseason on a two-year deal and nearly $7 million guaranteed. This comes after the team traded for New England Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Monday, prompting the move. Hoyer has struggled this season, accumulating 1,245 yards and only four touchdowns. He also has four picks and an underwhelming quarterback rating of 28.8, the second-lowest of his career.

Oct 30 8:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer was released Monday, Oct. 30, according to a source.

Oct 15 9:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard replaced QB Brian Hoyer against the Washington Redskins in Week 6 and completed 19 of his 36 passes for 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Oct 15 2:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer was benched during the team's Week 6 game and has been replaced by QB C.J. Beathard.

Oct 10 1:00pm ET

49ers' QB Brian Hoyer scored 25.65 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 5 loss in Indianapolis. Hoyer threw for 353 yards on 29-of-46 with two touchdowns.

Oct 9 3:30pm ET

After several dismal performances to start the season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer came through in a big way in Week 5. Hoyer finished the 49ers overtime loss with 353 yards on 29 of 46 passing, including two touchdowns. Hoyer also did not throw an interception on the day. He travels to Washington this week against a Redskins secondary that might be without cornerback Josh Norman. Hoyer is a QB2 with some upside this week, but should remain on waiver wires in all single-QB leagues.

Oct 8 10:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 29 of his 46 pass attempts for 353 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 5 against the Indianapolis Colts.

Oct 8 5:30pm ET

49ers' QB Brian Hoyer passed for 353 yards on 29-of-46 with two touchdowns in Sunday's loss in Indianapolis.

Oct 8 12:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers backup quarterback C.J. Beathard is unlikely to move ahead of Brian Hoyer as the starter anytime soon, unless Hoyer completely implodes in a game. It's also highly doubtful San Francisco will sign another quarterback unless an injury occurs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and the front office know this team isn't built to win right away, so 2017 is about setting up for the long term. Hoyer is clearly not the long-term answer, but he's comfortable in Shanahan's system. With that said, there's still a good chance Beathard sees some starts this year, but it may not be until later in the season. Only keep Beathard stashed in dynasty/keeper formats.

Oct 6 4:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer is looking to repeat his Week 3 performance against a similarly bad pass defense in Week 5 against the Colts. The Colts are allowing an average of almost 284 passing yards per game so far this season, and even with cornerback Vontae Davis back, still have holes. Hoyer will look to exploit matchups on the outside with Pierre Garcon and Carlos Hyde out of the backfield, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect a massive day. He can be a middle-of-the-road QB2 this week in a plus matchup.

Oct 3 2:52pm ET

Another week, another disappointing performance for Brian Hoyer. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback did have 49 attempts in Week 4's game in Arizona, but not a lot of production to show for those attempts. Hoyer finished the day completing just 24 of his 49 passes for 234 yards and one interception. He also ran the ball once for three yards. Hoyer can be kept safely on benches in Week 5, even with a good matchup against the Colts.

Oct 3 1:20pm ET

New San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is certainly not happy with how quarterback Brian Hoyer has started the 2017 season. Shanahan remarked to The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows about Hoyer: "When you have the time and you have guys open, you need to hit them. I thought he struggled with that at times (Sunday)." That being said, Hoyer remains the starting quarterback for the 49ers as they travel to Indianapolis to face the Colts in Week 5. Hoyer is a low-end option and should be kept on benches. At this point, though, it seems inevitable that San Fran will see what they have in rookie quarterback C.J. Beathard in what is already a lost season.

Oct 3 7:23am ET

San Francisco 49ers Brian Hoyer will remain in the starting quarterback job for the time being, as coach Kyle Shanahan told media he has 'not given any consideration' to a QB change.

Oct 1 11:33pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 24 of his 49 pass attempts for 234 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 4 overtime loss against the Arizona Cardinals.

Sep 23 8:25pm ET

49ers' QB Brian Hoyer scored an impressive 30.50 fantasy points in Thursday's Week 3 loss against the Rams. Hoyer threw for 332 yards on 23-of-37 with two touchdowns and one interception.

Sep 23 3:30pm ET

49ers' QB Brian Hoyer passed for 332 yards on 23-of-37 with two touchdowns in Thursday's loss against the Rams.
