2018 Fantasy Outlook
Considered the possible quarterback of the future when he was selected in the fourth round of the 2017 draft, Dobbs never saw a regular-season snap for the Steelers as a rookie. Stuck behind Landry Jones, Dobbs now faces additional competition from Mason Rudolph, taken in the third round this year. It seems likely that either Dobbs or Jones will not make the roster coming out of camp this season. Read Past Outlooks

Dobbs did not play in Sunday's 16-13 win over Cincinnati.
ANALYSIS
After watching from the sideline his rookie season, Dobbs played in five games in 2018, taking a total of 30 snaps. He finished completing five of 12 passes for 43 yards with one interception. His passer rating of 24.0 was the worst in the league of anyone attempting 10 or more passes. Dobbs has two years remaining on his current contract but may again find himself in a battle with Mason Rudolph for the backup quarterback job heading into next season.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The 6-3, 216 pound QB is a great athlete who also possesses tremendous smarts. As a result, Dobbs has the tools to make for an interesting developmental project behind Ben Roethlisberger. While his downfield accuracy was quite strong by the end of his Tennessee career, Dobbs never showed the natural ability to read defenses that you'd like to see in a quarterback. If his experiment at quarterback doesn't go well, Dobbs has the athleticism to transition to receiver. For now, he's slated for No. 3 QB duties in 2017 behind longtime Roethlisberger and backup Landry Jones, who has served in the Steelers' No. 2 role for each of the past two seasons and was signed to a two-year extension before the NFL draft.
