This despite a recent report stating that Rudolph was cleared by an independent neurologist to play in the days leading up to Sunday night's game, the story said. Other reports say the Steelers, after their Week 7 bye, plan to start Rudolph Week 8 against the Dolphins. If he doesn't clear protocol, it will be Hodges in Week 8.
PIT QB Mason Rudolph - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 vs. Baltimore Ravens
Mason Rudolph was much better in start No. 2 than he was in his first, throwing for 229 yards and a pair of scores against the Bengals. That gives him two touchdown passes in each of his first three games. The Ravens have allowed a bevy of big plays in the past three weeks after shutting down the Dolphins in their opener. In fact, since that game, the Ravens have given up an average of 461 yards per game. Rudolph is getting more comfortable and the coaching staff is getting more creative with him. He's only worth a start, however, in two-QB leagues.
