11/23/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for 322 yards, but did not have a great day for fantasy owners on Sunday.
Insight: He threw three interceptions and no touchdowns, which will not make for many fantasy points on the day.
 
11/16/2014 6:20:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer attempted 50 passes and completed just 20 of them versus the Texans.
Insight: That's good for a 40 percent completion percentage. Hoyer did have 330 yards and a touchdown, but also threw a pick. There are better options at quarterback for fantasy purposes.
 
11/7/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer managed the game beautifully as the Browns dominated the Bengals.
Insight: Hoyer made no mistakes. He also didn't help fantasy owners with his 198 yards passing and zero touchdowns.
 
11/2/2014 4:48:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for his first 300-yard game of the season in Week 9.
Insight: Hoyer finished with exactly 300 yards and threw two touchdowns with two interceptions. He is a decent QB2 in two-quarterback leagues, but he is still to reliant on the big play to be a quality QB1.
 
10/27/2014 10:42:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer threw for 275 yards and a touchdown without a turnover.
Insight: Hoyer wasn't great, but fortunately he was playing the one team that "wasn't great" can still get you a win and keep your job. he should hold off the "Johnny Football Era" for another week.
 
Cold10/21/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer will continue to start, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: Hoyer had a tough day in Jacksonville, but the 3-3 Browns are opting to stay the course. Hoyer has a favorable matchup at home against Oakland this Sunday.
 
10/19/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer was 12-of-34 for just 192 yards and couldn't get his team into the end zone.
Insight: It was a hugely disappointing game for Cleveland, who was hoping to win its third straight game. Instead, the offense was help without a touchdown against the winless Jaguars.
 
10/13/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer completed just 8-of-17 throws for 217 yards and a touchdown in a winning effort against the Steelers on Sunday.
Insight: It was not the most impressive day for Hoyer through the air, but Cleveland got the job done on the ground while Hoyer also found his tight end Jordan Cameron for a couple big plays. Hoyer remains a QB2 in deep leagues.
 
9/21/2014 5:36:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer played well during Sunday's loss to Baltimore.
Insight: He had an impressive 127.1 passer rating, while completing 19 of his 25 passes, for 290 yards and a score. Hoyer has done an admirable job holding off Johnny Manziel, and has simply caught some tough luck. The Browns have lost by a combined total of five points, during their two losses this season.
 
9/12/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Browns QB Brian Hoyer was likely in danger of finding himself on the bench after the first half, but responded in the second half and should be given a longer leash in Week 2.
Insight: Hoyer went 19-of-31 for 230 yards and a touchdowns without an interception as the Browns gave the Steelers all they could handle in Week 1. Johnny Manziel will likely have to wait until at least Week 5, after the bye, for a chance to show his stuff. Considering the team will probably be 0-3 at the time, that's when fantasy owners should expect to see Johnny Football
 
8/20/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: The Browns have named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to clevelandbrowns.com. "He was the clear leader from the beginning," coach Mike Pettine said. "We've maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field and in the locker room."
Insight: Hoyer started three games last season but tore his ACL early in the third one. In the two games in which Hoyer played heavily, tight end Jordan Cameron had 16 catches for 157 yards and four touchdowns on 23 targets. If Hoyer doesn't get off to a good start in the Browns' first three games (at Pittsburgh, vs. New Orleans, vs. Baltimore), we could see the team make the switch to Johnny Manziel during the Week 4 bye.
 
8/6/2014 3:36:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Brian Hoyer will start the Browns preseason opener on Saturday, according to beat writer Scott Petrak.
Insight: Hoyer is the favorite to start in Week 1 over Johnny Manziel, but Manziel could close the gap quickly once the exhibition season begins. Browns coach Mike Pettine said the first two preseason games will "more than likely" determine the winner of the quarterback competition.
 
10/4/2013 12:10:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has a partially torn ACL, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Insight: Hoyer came down awkwardly on his right leg after running for a first down in the first quarter of Thursday's game. He'll get a second opinion, but his season appears to be over. It's too bad as he had just led the Browns to two consecutive victories and was playing at a very high level.
 
Hot10/3/2013 10:16:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer will not return to Thursday's game due to a right knee injury, reports Alex Flanagan of NFL Network.
Insight: Hoyer came down awkwardly on his right leg after running for a first down in the first quarter. The team is fearful he tore ligaments in his right knee and will send him for an MRI. A serious knee injury would be devastating for the career backup, who went 2-0 in his first two starts with Cleveland and looked like a potentially viable starting quarterback.
 
Hot10/3/2013 8:45:00 PM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer left Thursday's game against the Bills in the first quarter with a right knee injury.
Insight: Hoyer came down awkwardly on his right leg after running for a first down. He was helped to the bench and then walked to the locker room under his own power after being checked out. It's back to Brandon Weeden for Cleveland.
 
Hot9/30/2013 12:02:00 PM
Description: We expect Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback for the Browns in Week 5 whether Brandon Weeden (thumb) is ready or not.
Insight: Hoyer: 59.8 percent completion rate, 295 ypg, 5 TD, 3 INT, 83.2 QB rating, undefeated. Weeden: 54.7 percent completion rate, 258 ypg, 1 TD, 3 INT, 62.0 QB rating, winless. Seems pretty obvious doesn't it?
 
9/25/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Brian Hoyer will start at quarterback for the Browns in Week 4 as Brandon Weeden isn't ready to return from his thumb injury, according to coach Rob Chudzinski.
Insight: Hoyer tossed three touchdown passes, all to tight end Jordan Cameron in Sunday's win over Minnesota. It will be interesting to see who the team goes with when Weeden is ready to return.
 
9/22/2013 6:05:00 PM
Description: Brian Hoyer overcame three interceptions to lead the Browns to victory Sunday in his first start of the 2013 season.
Insight: He tossed three touchdown passes, all to tight end Jordan Cameron. The 321 yards Hoyer racked up through the air were a career-high. It seems likely that he'll start again next week, regardless of Brandon Weeden's availability.
 
9/22/2013 11:38:00 AM
Description: Cleveland QB Brian Hoyer could overtake Brandon Weeden for the starting job if he plays well Sunday against the Vikings. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
Insight: The Browns shook things up by changing their running back situation earlier this week and now it looks like they're about to do the same thing at quarterback. Hoyer probably won't be a fantasy option as he's only thrown for 616 yards and two touchdowns in 15 career games. His combined quarterback rating in those games is just 72.2.
 
9/18/2013 11:14:00 AM
Description: Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer is expected to start against the Minnesota Vikings for just the second time in his career, with starter Brandon Weeden sidelined with a thumb injury.
Insight: Hoyer, who has only thrown 96 passes in five NFL seasons, has never thrown for more than 225 yards or one touchdown in an NFL game.
