Mason Rudolph
23-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Pittsburgh Steelers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Just as fellow QB Josh Dobbs did in his rookie season, Rudolph failed to take a single regular-season snap in 2018. The two will battle for the backup quarterback job behind Ben Roethlisberger this summer, with Rudolph listed behind Dobbs on the depth chart entering training camp. Roethlisberger is signed through the 2021 season, so even if Rudolph overtakes Dobbs, his fantasy utility is limited, so long as Pittsburgh's long-time franchise remains healthy. Read Past Outlooks

Must wait for his chance to play

January 1, 2019
Rudolph was inactive for Pittsburgh's 16-13 win over Cincinnati in Week 17.
ANALYSIS
Drafted as the heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger, Rudolph finished his rookie season without ever taking a snap. He has three years remaining on his current contract and will compete with Josh Dobbs for the backup quarterback job in 2019.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A rookie third-round pick, Rudolph will back up Ben Roethlisberger this season. While Roethlisberger didn't miss time to injury last year, he's usually good for sitting out a game or two, which means Rudolph could actually see the field at some point. At 6-5, 235, Rudolph has the size, strength and willingness to stand strong in the pocket, able to withstand pressure to make plays. He is an accurate downfield passer but lacks arm strength, and while he quickly processes information, he played in a simplistic spread offense at Oklahoma State, which could slow his transition to the NFL. If he does play this season, he'll have two of the best weapons in football at his disposal in Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, which is about as good as it gets for a rookie.
