2020 Fantasy Outlook
A season-ending elbow injury to starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger forced Rudolph into action early in 2019 after going his entire rookie season without taking the field. Playing in 10 games -- including eight starts -- he performed adequately before dislocating his shoulder. Offseason surgery was successful, and he should be ready to step in again if Roethlisberger is not fully recovered from his own surgery. However, Rudolph's fantasy value is limited, as he would likely be on a short leash, facing competition from second-year quarterback Devlin Hodges. Read Past Outlooks

Rudolph (shoulder) has resumed throwing footballs, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The report adds that the 2018 third-rounder, who is bouncing back from offseason surgery to address a fractured AC joint, is expected to be full go for offseason work. In that context, Rudolph could be in line to significant QB reps out of the gate, with veteran starter Ben Roethlisberger on the mend from elbow surgery.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
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.
