Patriots QB Brian Hoyer left Sunday's game against the Packers after taking an early hit from Packers DL Rashan Gary. He is being evaluated for a head injury. Bailey Zappe is in at quarterback.
An early exit for the veteran but it gives the Patriots a chance to see what they have in their fourth-round rookie, who set NCAA records for passing touchdowns (62) and yards (5,967) last season at Western Kentucky.
IND QB Brian Hoyer - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 vs. Miami Dolphins
Brian Hoyer threw three touchdowns in relief of Jacoby Brissett last week, nearly leading the Colts to a victory if not for a missed field goal at the end of the game. Brissett is questionable with a knee sprain heading into a great matchup against the Dolphins, making both players a question mark. Should Brissett sit, Hoyer has some streaming upside in a week full of byes against the fourth-worst team in aFPA to opposing quarterbacks. In general, however, fantasy owners should look for a more stable streaming option if possible.
