Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph is expected to fined for his role Thursday, Nov. 14, in a late-game brawl between the Steelers and Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: That means no suspension is likely for Rudolph. Still, overshadowed by the end-of-game ugliness, Rudolph had by far his worst outing of the season, completing 23-of-44 passes for 221 yards, one TD and four interceptions and is usable only as a low-end QB2 in 12-team and larger two-quarterback leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph completed 23 of 44 passes for 221 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions during the team's Week 11 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Rudolph also ran twice for 15 yards.
Huddle Up: While all the post-game focus will rightfully be on Myles Garrett's actions, Rudolph laid on egg on TNF that brought the team's four-game winning streak to a screeching halt. Up until tonight he'd played largely mistake-free football, and you can bet the Steelers will try to refocus on the run and short passing game in Week 12 against the Bengals. Regardless, Rudolph isn't posting fantasy-worthy numbers.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph went 22-of-38 for 242 yards and a touchdown in Week 10 versus the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Rudolph hasn't been asked to do much lately because Pittsburgh has assembled one of the best defenses in the league. In this contest, all he was really needed for was a 3-yard first-quarter TD pass to James Washington and let the Rams beat themselves. It's entirely possible the Steelers will be able to continue letting Rudolph manage the game again on a short week in Week 11 as they visit the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph completed 26-of-35 passes for 191 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 9 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Rudolph was without his top running back threat, James Conner, who also has nice hands out of the backfield. That didn't help. It was a tough matchup against the Colts, too, and it doesn't get any easier against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 10. Rudolph remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph completed 20-of-36 passes for 251 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. He was picked off on his first pass attempt.
Huddle Up: Rudolph and the offense was booed with the team down 14-0 early. Perhaps he was a bit rusty, but he led the offense to 27 unanswered points and they were cheering in the end. Rudolph remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats. The Steelers host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) practiced in full Saturday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: Rudolph should be all clear for Monday Night Football against the Miami Dolphins. He can be considered as a bye-week replacement for owners of Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson or Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott with such a premium matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) has cleared the concussion protocol and should be able to play after the Week 7 bye.
Huddle Up: Rudolph will be able to rest this week and should be back at practice next week. He has not posted great numbers since taking over the starting job but could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in some deeper leagues since the team plays the Miami Dolphins in Week 8.

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph (concussion) hasn't been cleared to return by an independent neurologist, team spokesman Burt Lauten said Tuesday, Oct. 15. 'Mason remains in the concussion protocol and has not been cleared by the independent neurological consultant,' Lauten told Ed Bouchette of The Athletic. 'Until he is cleared, and per the concussion protocol, he will not be made available to the media.' The Steelers are on bye this week.
Huddle Up: Rudolph will return to the starting role once cleared, and the Week 7 bye should give him that opportunity. He's a mid-tier QB2 while third-stringer Devlin Hodges is a fringe bottom-tier option if he needs to make a second straight start next week.
