From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Hoyer might be the worst fantasy quarterback among the 32 starters right now. He's barely worth rostering in 2QB/Superflex leagues heading into a Thursday night matchup with the Rams.

Week 3: vs Los Angeles Rams

All QB vs LAR

FBG says: Bad matchup. The 49ers struggled again last week behind only 99 passing yards from Brian Hoyer. Their offense as a whole was atrocious outside of Carlos Hyde, who finished tied with the most targets (6) on the team. Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin finished with three receptions and 26 yards apiece. Brian Hoyer did not complete a single pass beyond 15 yards, otherwise, he may have thrown for more than only one interception in what was a very tough matchup against the Seahawks. This week's matchup only slightly improves as Hoyer and company take on a Rams secondary that has yet to allow over 200 passing yards this season against the Colts and Redskins. Safety Lamarcus Joyner has been playing very well this season, and cornerback Trumaine Johnson absolutely smothered Terrelle Pryor last week, holding him to only two receptions on four targets for 31 yards. Johnson had to be helped off in the fourth quarter with an apparent leg injury, but he was not listed on the team's Monday injury report. The Rams other starting running back Kayvon Webster missed last week with a shoulder injury, but he was practicing last Friday, so he could suit up this week. The 49ers passing offense is not one you want to be invested in, particularly this week as their receivers simply will not match up with the talent in this Rams secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs SEA (15 / 27 / 99 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Although leeway must be given because of facing the Seahawks pass defense in Seattle, Hoyer's performance was awful nevertheless. His first dropback of the game saw Marquise Goodwin get wide open against Richard Sherman off of play action, but Hoyer air-mailed the 20-yard throw. His second dropback, which wasn't until San Francisco's next drive, resulted in one of the worst interceptions you'll ever see. Hoyer operated from the shotgun in an empty backfield because Carlos Hyde lined up at slot right. On his slant route, Hyde beat the outside linebacker in coverage towards the inside, but Hoyer threw his pass directly into the waiting arms of middle linebacker Bobby Wagner, who had been statiioned in the middle of the field the entire time. As failing to reach 100 yards passing suggests, things didn't improve from there.

2017 Week 1 vs CAR (24 / 35 / 193 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)

Hoyer looked good on plays that went as designed. When he had a clean pocket and the first option was open, Hoyer was accurate and on time. When there was pressure from the Panthers defense, he was ineffective. Drives sputtered because of sacks, penalties, and unsuccessful plays and the 49ers were unable to score a touchdown in this game. Hoyer was also picked to open the second half, killing any chance the 49ers had to create momentum. CJ Beathard will get to start before the season is over.

49ers | Brian Hoyer posts big numbers (Fri Sep 22, 12:47 AM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Brian Hoyer completed 23 of 37 passes for 332 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in a 41-39 loss to the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, Sept. 21.

Our View: Hoyer's first play was an interception that nearly came back for a touchdown, but he recovered from there to play a strong game, including good deep passing. He wasn't able to convert a two-point conversion late to tie the game, but he did enough to hold off the calls for CJ Beathard heading into a matchup with Arizona.
