Rudolph was the No. 3 quarterback for the Steelers his rookie year. He will look to move up the depth chart this year and serve as the top backup. Rudolph could be the successor to Ben Roethlisberger. Rudolph looks the part of an NFL starter. He is a big quarterback that can make all the throws. He has very good touch but also can fit the ball into tight spaces if needed. He does lack a little arm strength, though, and could use a little help with his decision making.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Rudolph is worth a look if Roethlisberger gets hurt but that is the only time he deserves a roster spot. We think Rudolph is the top backup for the team in year two.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 14 of 27 passes for 174 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the 49ers. The Steelers were pretty conservative in their gameplan with the signal caller making his first career start. The few times that they did make some deep throws, gold struck for the offense. Ultimately, it wasn't good enough as the team forced five turnovers and weren't able to take advantage. Rudolph will have a solid matchup in Week 4 when the Steelers return home for a Monday Night Football matchup with the Bengals. However, he's still nothing better than a mid-level QB2.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph draws his first NFL start on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. The Oklahoma State product got his first taste of the NFL regular season in Week 2, after starting the secondhalfin place of Ben Roethlisberger (elbow). He threw for 112 yards, two scores, and an interception. The Steelers are very confident in their 2018 third-round pick going forward. However, the 49ers have allowed just 19.4 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks through the first two weeks, and they're tied for second with four interceptions on defense. Rudolph has upside when throwing to JuJu Smith-Schuster and Vance McDonald, but on the road, he is nothing more than a mid-range QB2 and a deep DFS dart throw.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph just made his NFL debut in Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but now he is slated to become the team's full-time starter with the news that Ben Roethlisberger's (elbow) season is over. Rudolph went 12-for-19 for 112 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in a 28-26 loss. JuJu Smith-Schuster's value takes a hit with Rudolph taking over, while his former Oklahoma State teammate James Washington gets a nice bump due to expected workload increase. Tight end Vance McDonald caught two touchdowns from Rudolph on Sunday, so he should continue to be a safety net for the second-year signal caller. Look at Rudolph as a mid-to-low-end QB2 until he proves he can handle an NFL offense.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph threw for 112 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. Rudolph was thrust into action to start the second half after Ben Roethlisberger (elbow) sustained an injury. Rudolph looked solid and did a good job bringing the Steelers back into the game but the defense wasn't able to stop Seattle. If Roethlisberger is out, this offense takes an enormous hit. Rudolph is nothing more than a mid-range QB2 if he becomes the full-time starter so pay attention to Big Ben's injury news.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph went 7 of 11 for 125 yards and a touchdown in the team's final preseason game on Thursday against the Panthers. Rudolph put on his best, last impression for the coaching staff in their decision to name the backup to Ben Roethlisberger. Joshua Dobbs got the start and went just 3-for-5, which is pretty telling of who the team wants to see as their backup this season. We'll know officially on Saturday who the team chooses, but the cards seem to be in Rudolph's favor. He's only a dynasty option for the time being, and even if Roethlisberger were to go down, the second-year man would have a lot to prove before he becomes fantasy relevant in redraft leagues.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 6 of 9 passes for 75 yards, including a touchdown and an interception in Sunday's preseason win over the Titans. Rudolph connected with James Washington for a 41-yard touchdown, their second time in as many games. The second-year man out of Oklahoma State is vying to become Ben Roethlisberger's backup and has thrown for 243 yards, three scores, and a pick this preseason. His competition with Joshua Dobbs has been a tight race and will come down all the way to final cuts before a decision is made. The two offer different styles, with Rudolph acting as the typical drop back passer. He only holds dynasty value at the moment, and but if he wins the job and anything were to happen to Roethlisberger, Rudolph could hold week-to-week streaming value.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 10 of 15 passes for 77 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Chiefs. Rudolph drew the start under center and got the majority of the first half to himself. The Oklahoma State product is a former third-round pick who seems to be the favorite to backup Ben Roethlisberger. While he doesn't hold much value in real life, he has solid dynasty value for fantasy purposes. If he is able to secure the backup job, he will spend the year learning under one of the most accomplished signal callers of the last decade.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph will start Saturday's home preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The second-year signal caller went 5-for-8 for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the first preseason game. Rudolph will be followed up by Joshua Dobbs, who started the first preseason game, while rookie Devlin Hodges is also expected to see time. Rudolph and Dobbs are battling to backup Ben Roethlisberger this season. Rudolph has some value in dynasty leagues, while Dobbs isn't as much of an option.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 5 of 8 passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's preseason opening 30-28 win over Tampa Bay. The second-year signal caller saw a majority his work in the second and third quarter. After being drafted in the third round in 2018, many expect Rudolph to be the heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh. It was encouraging to see him perform well on Friday, but there's not much to look at for Rudolph just yet, especially since he's in a training camp battle with Joshua Dobbs to be the backup. Rudolph has some dynasty value but if he isn't able to claim the backup job, his future will have some serious question marks.
