NEWS: Brian Hoyer taking the first-team reps.

According to reports, Browns QB Brian Hoyer took the first-team reps during Browns practice, and he reportedly looked very good.

SMITTY: Brian Hoyer was a dark horse of mine prior to the Johnny Manziel drafting; I still think he has strong sleeper appeal, as he isn’t even getting drafted, according to most ADP data; however, his ‘breakout’ ceiling was damaged beyond repair once Josh Gordon, who is trying to avoid a year-long ban via his August 1st appeal, got into trouble. It’s quite a shame Hoyer didn’t get his fair shot with one of the league’s best receivers (talent-wise). You got to think Manziel will be starting for the Browns at some point in 2014, but don’t write Hoyer off just yet. Looking for Full-Season 2014 Fantasy Football Projections?
