Brian Hoyer (ACL) ahead of schedule - [Full Article]

The Matt Schaub trade is good news for Brian Hoyer, who has every intention of being the Browns' starting quarterback in 2014, and is confident he can beat out a rookie for the job. (The Browns were interested in acquiring Schaub.)

The Browns are studying all of the top quarterback prospects, but general manager Ray Farmer said he won't necessarily draft one with the No. 4 overall pick. The Browns also have the No. 26 overall pick in the first round.

Now, Hoyer can focus on coming back from his torn ACL -- he's ahead of schedule -- and trying to pick up where he left off last season, when he went 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: 

Hoyer is currently penciled in as the starter, but the draft may change things. With Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron as potent weapons in the passing game, whoever is quarterbacking the Browns will have some fantasy upside.
