Sit ‘Em

QB Brian Hoyer (CLE)

Last week Brian Hoyer had a great game against the Tennessee Titans throwing for 292 yards and three touchdowns. So =, naturally we should rush over to the waiver wire and grab him up, right?

    Hoyer’s un-Hoyer like performance last week was mostly due to the fact that the Browns signal caller was forced out of game manager mode and into comeback mode, as the Browns trailed 28-3. Things should return to normal this week, with normal being Cleveland running the ball first with a healthy Ben Tate back on the field.

    Hoyer also faces the division rival, Pittsburgh Steelers this week, the same Steelers D that intercepted Jags QB Blake Bortles twice in week 5.

    QB Austin Davis (STL)

    Much of the same story for Rams quarterback Austin Davis this week. Davis managed to have himself a great performance in week 5 against the Eagles. This week however, he faces the San Francisco 49ers — a defense much better than that of the one in Philly.

    In fact, the 9ers pass defense is ranked 2nd in the NFL (according to, and have limited fantasy football QB’s (Alex Smith and Nick Foles) to under 10 points in the last two games.
