Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) won't play against the Jets this weekend, according to insider John McClain.  Hoyer reportedly experienced memory loss after being concussed on Monday.  QB T.J. Yates gets the start this Sunday.  His only 5 previous starts came back in 2011, when he completed 62% of his passes with 3 TDs and 3 INTs.  Yates isn't a Week 11 fantasy option vs. the Jets' 2nd-ranked QB defense.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) won't practice on Wednesday, according to insider Aaron Wilson.  That's not a surprise just 2 days removed from the head injury.  Hoyer is no better than 50/50 to be cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Jets.  If he's not, QB T.J. Yates will get the start.  It's a situation to avoid in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Texans QB Brian Hoyer sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Bengals.  He completed 12 of 22 passes for 123 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT before exiting.  QB T.J. Yates came on in relief and tossed for 69 yards and the game-winning score to WR DeAndre Hopkins.  Hoyer will remain the starter once he's cleared.  This was the 1st concussion of his NFL career.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien confirmed Monday that QB Brian Hoyer will remain the starter going forward.  “I would say he’s our quarterback,” O’Brien said. “We’re going to stick with him. We’ve got a lot of confidence in him.”  Hoyer completed 24 of 36 passes for 293 yards and a career-high 3 TDs in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.  That followed a solid Week 5 showing in relief of QB Ryan Mallett.  We're still not ready to trust Hoyer as a fantasy starter, but he's good news for WR DeAndre Hopkins.

Texans HC Bill O'Brien named QB Brian Hoyer his Week 6 starter.  Hoyer turned in the best performance by a Houston QB this season in Thursday night's loss to the Colts.  But he'll still be nothing more than a low-end QB2 against the Jaguars next weekend.  O'Brien didn't commit to Hoyer as his guy for the remainder of the season.

Texans QB Ryan Mallett started Thursday night's game against the Colts but took a big shot to the ribs midway through the 2nd quarter.  He asked out of the game and never got back in.  QB Brian Hoyer got on a roll, and Houston stuck with him.  Hoyer finished 24 of 31 for 312 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT.  The INT was an ugly one late in the 4th quarter that cost the Texans a shot to tie the game.  But this was still the best performance by a Texans QB this season.  Hoyer will almost certainly be the Week 6 starter.  He's still not a fantasy option.  But if he can play like he did against the Colts, it'd be good news for WR DeAndre Hopkins and RB Arian Foster.

3:17pm EDT 9/13/15

Texans QB Brian Hoyer was benched in the 4th quarter of Sunday's opener.  He completed just 18 of 34 passes (52.9%) for 236 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT and 1 fumble lost.  QB Ryan Mallett entered and immediately tossed a TD to WR DeAndre Hopkins.  He finished 8 for 14 for 98 yards and a score.  We'll see who Houston goes with for Week 2, but this remains a situation to avoid in fantasy football.

The Texans have tabbed Brian Hoyer as their starting QB, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.  Hoyer also received a new 2-year, $10.5 million deal.  He's been decent in preseason action, completing 9 of 15 passes (60%) for 119 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs.  QB Ryan Mallett, meanwhile, has gone 15 of 18 (83.3%) but averaged just 6.3 yards per attempt.  Houston is going with Hoyer's experience here, hoping that he can manage the offense and allow the running game and defense to win games.  Hoyer is a limited talent working with a weak group of pass-catchers and won't have volume on his side.  Don't bother with him in fantasy drafts.

The Texans have dealt QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to the Jets in exchange for a late-round conditional pick, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.  Houston will move forward with Ryan Mallett, Brian Hoyer and Tom Savage at QB.  Fitzpatrick, meanwhile, will battle Geno Smith (and possibly a rookie) for the Jets' starting job.  The winner will have sneaky fantasy upside in OC Chan Gailey's spread offense and with WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.

Insider Dianna Marie Russini hears that QB Brian Hoyer will sign with the Texans.  He'll be reuniting with HC Bill O'Brien, who was Hoyer's QBs coach and OC from 2009-2011.  Houston will have Hoyer, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tom Savage under contract.  They're also reportedly close to re-signing Ryan Mallett.  The group will stage a competition for the starting job this summer, but the winner won't be more than a low-end QB2 in a run-first offense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Browns QB Brian Hoyer is playing for his job today.  If Cleveland loses to the Colts, the "likely scenario" would be QB Johnny Manziel closing out the season under center.  That'd give him starts against the Bengals, Panthers and Ravens.  That Carolina matchup in Week 16 would make him an intriguing streamer in season-long leagues and cheap play in DFS.  As for today's game against the Colts, Rapoport hears that the Browns will stick with Hoyer unless "the team goes down big or is badly in need of a spark deep into the game."  You're obviously avoiding Browns QBs in Week 14.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports that the Browns have informed QB Brian Hoyer that he'll start this weekend's game against the Colts.  Expect an official announcement later today.  It's a bit surprising after Hoyer struggled for the 3rd straight game this past Sunday, while QB Johnny Manziel seemed to spark the offense.  But Cleveland is still in the playoff hunt and might trust the veteran more.  Hoyer also has "widespread support inside the locker room," according to Glazer.  He'll be on a short leash this weekend, though, and isn't a fantasy option.

2:42pm EST 11/30/14

Browns QB Brian Hoyer was benched early in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Bills.  He completed just 18 of 30 passes for 192 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs.  That gives him 0 TDs and 5 INTs over his last 2 games.  QB Johnny Manziel is in for Cleveland and could win the starting job with a solid showing.

Browns HC Mike Pettine admitted that he "briefly" discussed benching QB Brian Hoyer for QB Johnny Manziel during Sunday's loss to the Jaguars.  Pettine then quickly threw support behind Hoyer.  "Brian is still firmly our starter," he said.  "We're not going to hit the panic button after one loss. While we know that the quarterback position needed to be more productive, it was more symptomatic of the entire offense."  Hoyer was brutal against Jacksonville, completing 16-of-41 passes (39%) for 215 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT.  Of course, Hoyer was solid in Cleveland's first 5 games, so he's likely earned himself some wiggle room.  But a couple more games like he had this past week, and the Browns would likely give Manziel a look.  It's worth noting that Hoyer and the Browns have favorable matchups the next 2 weeks against the Raiders and Bucs.  We'd expect Hoyer to at least make it to November as the starter.

The NFL has upheld WR Josh Gordon’s full-year suspension. As ESPN’s Adam Schefter points out, the delay in the appeal process now means that Gordon will miss all of next year’s training camp, as well. (The 1-year clock on the ban starts now.) The Browns are sticking by Gordon through the situation, though, so he’ll return as the #1 WR in 2015. Meanwhile, Cleveland is left with Miles Austin, Andrew Hawkins and Nate Burleson as its likely Week 1 starting wideouts. It’s the worst group in the league. TE Jordan Cameron is a good bet to lead the team in targets.

Update: The league will reportedly consider reinstating Gordon in time for practice next spring.

The Browns have named Brian Hoyer their starting QB.  Neither Hoyer nor Johnny Manziel impressed in the first 2 preseason games, so the veteran gets the nod.  It's a smart move because it'll be a lot easier to bench Hoyer in favor of Manziel than it would be the other way around.  We're still expecting to see the rookie under center by midseason, but this news makes Manziel undraftable in standard fantasy leagues.  We wouldn't bother with Hoyer, either.

Browns QB Brian Hoyer will start the 2nd preseason game at Washington. We learned earlier this week that Hoyer and Johnny Manziel would split 1st-team reps, but now we know the starter. HC Mike Pettine says both QBs “should get close to equal reps with the ones.” That’ll help with the evaluation process, but we still might not know the winner of this battle until after the 3rd preseason game. Manziel remains an intriguing fantasy backup as soon as he takes over as the starter.

The Browns announced that QB Brian Hoyer will start the preseason opener.  No surprise that the veteran gets the nod here.  QB Johnny Manziel is breathing down Hoyer's neck, though, and could make up even more ground in live action.  Who starts the 2nd exhibition will be the real indicator of how the battle is playing out.
