Mason Rudolph draws start in second preseason game

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph got the start and played pretty well. He led the team on an 89-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter which was puncutated by a Jaylen Samuels touchdown run. Rudolph and Joshua Dobbs are competing to be the primary backup to Ben Roethlisberger.

Mason Rudolph throws two scores in preseason opener

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph completed 5-of-8 passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns in a 30-28 win over the Buccaneers in his team's preseason opener on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph got to lead four drives in the game. He completed a touchdown pass to James Washington and another to Zach Gentry. The second-year signal-caller is looking to lock down the No. 2 quarterback role behind Ben Roethlisberger.

Mason Rudolph struggles in preseason start

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph turned in an uneven performance in his preseason start against the Green Bay Packers on Thursday. Playing the entire first half, Rudolph completed just 5-of-12 passes for 47 yards while adding one touchdown and one interception.

Fantasy Impact

Rudolph looked like a rookie out there, throwing a pick-six on his first pass attempt of the game and taking three sacks. He did find JuJu Smith-Schuster for a four-yard score in the first quarter but that was his only play of note. Rudolph is looking to win the backup quarterback job out of training camp. From a fantasy standpoint, he is really only of interest in deep, two-quarterback dynasty leagues at this point of his career.

Mason Rudolph heads to Steelers after trade with Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks traded the 76th pick in the NFL Draft to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who selected Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph.

Fantasy Impact

In the second round, the Steelers selected wide receiver James Washington. After trading up in the third round, they took his teammate and quarterback Mason Rudolph. While he might not play in his first year unless there is an injury to Ben Roethlisberger, he instantly becomes the heir-apparently to the 36-year-old signal caller. Some analysts have said that Rudolph throws the best deep ball of any of the quarterbacks in the draft, and it was not considered out of the question that he could sneak into the first round of the draft.

Mason Rudolph to miss Senior Bowl with foot injury

Mason Rudolph, who just completed his senior season at Oklahoma State University, and is a highly regarded prospect, will miss the 2018 Senior Bowl with a foot injury sustained in OSU's bowl game against Virginia Tech. Rudolph will still attend for measurements and interviews, but will not play. He should be ready for the NFL Scouting Combine.

Fantasy Impact

This is a tough situation for Rudolph, who sits behind the top tier of QBs in the class, according to most scouts and analysts. His college resume is excellent, and the Senior Bowl would have been a good opportunity for him to showcase his skills. Rudolph completed a career 63.2% of pass attempts, threw for 324 yards per game, 92 touchdowns, and 26 interceptions. He notched an impressive 9.4 yards per attempt for his career, with a mark of 10.0 in his senior campaign. Rudolph adds very little on the ground. His passing production is exceptional, and grades out higher than some of the prospects regarded higher than him. He flew under the radar a bit after starting out as a Heisman candidate, as OSU struggled down the stretch in 2017. Rudolph could be a sneaky value both for an NFL team and for fantasy owners if he's overlooked.
