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. Read Past Outlooks

Coach's Decision
September 9, 2018
Rudolph is inactive for Sunday's game against Cleveland due to coach's decision, Teresa Varley of the Steeler's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Rudolph lost the battle for the backup slot to Joshua Dobbs, and the team has no need to suit up three quarterbacks in Week 1. Rudolph will likely suit up if the team faces injuries and doesn't need to scratch healthy players.
