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

May get fined for role in brawl

November 15, 2019
Rudolph could be subject to a fine for his role during the brawl that ensued late in the fourth quarter of the Steelers' 21-7 loss to the Browns on Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
The second-year signal-caller was the victim of the most flagrant conduct of the fight, as Browns defensive end Myles Garrett pulled Rudolph's helmet off the quarterback and then swung it at Rudolph's head. Garrett received an indefinite suspension for his actions, while Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were handed one- and three-game suspensions, respectively. Though Rudolph avoided a suspension, the NFL will presumably review the video of the fight and determine whether the 24-year-old did anything to warrant a fine. In the meantime, Rudolph will look to move past an outing that was already an ugly one leading up to the fight. Rudolph finished the night with 23 completions on 44 attempts for 221 yards, a touchdown and a career-high four interceptions.

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.
