Browns pick their third stringer to start this week over Jason Campbell

Browns third-string quarterback Brian Hoyer will start Sunday against Minnesota in place of Brandon Weeden, who sprained his right thumb last week. Cleveland surprisingly decided to go with Hoyer over more experienced backup Jason Campbell.

This is a very surprise move by the Browns, but I honestly feel that Hoyer is a better quarterback than Campbell.  If you have a fantasy need a quarterback, you should put in a waiver claim for Hoyer.  Hoyer is a very solid passing quarterback. He has started games before and lit up the last game in the preseason.

The 27-year-old Hoyer started the exhibition finale after Campbell fell ill before the game in Chicago. Hoyer completed 24 of 35 passes for 307 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions.
