Brian Hoyer May Start In Week 4

Friday, September 29, 5:08 PM

Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Brian Hoyer could be in line for the start if starter Jimmy Garoppolo cannot clear the NFL's concussion protocol. Garoppolo was placed in the concussion protocol following the Raiders loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Garoppolo was able to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday and Friday but remained in the concussion protocol on Friday. The Raiders starter has one more chance to clear the protocol before being deemed unavailable for Sunday's game. It is unclear whether Brian Hoyer or rookie Aidan O'Connell will start for the Raiders, but more clarity on the situation should arise tomorrow once Garoppolo's status is confirmed. Hoyer has not started a game since Week 4 of the 2022 season for the New England Patriots, and he left that game after getting hurt on his first drive. Hoyer has not won a game in 12 straight starts, owning a 75.1 quarterback rating in that span. Although the Chargers are one of the easiest matchups for quarterbacks, fantasy managers should look elsewhere for a quarterback to stream in Week 4.

Jalen Hurts A Must-Start Against Washington

Friday, September 29, 7:59 PM

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts will take on the division-rival Washington Commanders in Week 4 on Sunday. The 25-year-old has put together two top-10 performances over the past two weeks and now faces a Washington defense that has done well against opposing quarterbacks to open the season. With that said, the only real offense they have played is Buffalo, who scored 37 points] against them last week. Allen averaged 15.3 yards per carry against the Commanders last week and scored, so Hurts is set up for a top-tier fantasy performance in Week 4. You are playing the Eagles quarterback every week if you have him, but after a slow start, this could be the week he gets back on track as an elite option.
