Brian Hoyer named Texans starting QB - [Full Article]

Brian Hoyer has been named the Houston Texans starting quarterback, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Impact: 

Both QBs really struggled in their last preseason game with the Broncos. Mallett got the start, going 5-of-7 passing for just 23 yards on two drives. Despite boasting a strong arm, not once in his seven passes did Mallett even look to throw deep, an article said.
Hoyer entered the game and didn't fare any better, going 7-of-11 for 52 yards. He did try to look deep but failed to connect. Hoyer does have a WR1 in DeAndre Hopkins and could have QB2 or streaming value to fantasy owners. He's said to be a much better fit than Mallett in Bill O'Brien's offense.
