Mason Rudolph
24-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
$Signed a four-year, $3.92 million contract with the Steelers in May of 2018.
Cleared to play

October 16, 2019
Rudolph is no longer in the NFL's concussion protocol, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
With Rudolph having been cleared by an independent neurologist, the QB will be able to work fully after the Steelers' Week 7 bye. In his looming return to action as a starter, Rudolph will face the 0-5 Dolphins. Meanwhile, Devlin Hodges is slated to resume working in a backup capacity.

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.
