The main storyline from Tuesday's practice were the returns of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, who both skipped the team's voluntary OTAs. But it didn't look like they skipped a beat.
Gronkowski, in particular, looked like his old self. The tight end made the play of the day, hauling in a pass from Brian Hoyer while in double coverage from Jordan Richards and Damarius Travis down the left sideline for a touchdown. He spiked the ball into the hill next to the field and celebrated the play with Chris Hogan.
SF QB Brian Hoyer - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 at Washington
Brian Hoyer had his second big game in three weeks, throwing for 353 yards and 2 scores against Indianapolis last week. Given the matchup, the 49ers could be forced to throw again this week if they fall behind. Hoyer isn't anything close to a sure bet, however. This one would take some guts to do. But he could be a sneaky start if you feel the Washington will start fast.
