Brian Hoyer Extends Losing Streak

Sunday, October 22, 4:46 PM

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Brian Hoyer completed 17 of 32 passes (53%) for 129 yards and two interceptions in the Week 7 loss to the Chicago Bears. Hoyer, filling in for injured Jimmy Garoppolo, struggled to get the offense going at Soldier Field. The veteran quarterback had zero passing touchdowns and was sacked once. Hoyer has now lost 13 straight starts dating back to 2016. The Raiders got down big in this contest and eventually placed rookie quarterback Aidan O'Connell in the game. O'Connell threw the only touchdown of the game for the Raiders in the fourth quarter. The Raiders take on the Detroit Lions in Week 8. The Lions have been middling against quarterbacks this season. Hoyer had a bad game, and it will be hard to trust him as a starter if Garoppolo misses more time. Fantasy managers should stay away from Hoyer regardless of the matchup.

Deshaun Watson Has Shoulder Surgery Tuesday

Tuesday, November 21, 7:42 PM

Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) underwent successful surgery to fix a displaced fracture in his right shoulder on Tuesday in Los Angeles. The procedure was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Watson is expected to be ready for the start of the 2024 season. The 28-year-old signal-caller was also dealing with a sprained right rotator cuff earlier in the year and missed Weeks 4 and 6 before returning in Week 7, only to aggravate his shoulder and miss another game in Week 8. So far, Watson has been a disappointment considering the massive fully guaranteed deal he was given by Cleveland. P.J. Walker has made a few starts in place of Watson this year, but rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson picked up his first career win in Week 11 over the Pittsburgh Steelers and will stick as the Browns' starter at QB again this weekend in Denver against the Broncos.
