Joshua Dobbs is headed to Pittsburgh after being selected in the fourth round (135 overall) in this year’s NFL draft. The 22-year-old signal caller will first look to secure backup duties with his new team before making his case for a starting role; similar to how Ryan Mallet and Brock Osweiler were each able to land starting roles following stints as backups to entrenched, franchise QBs. Despite a lackluster collegiate career with the Tennessee Volunteers, from a statistical standpoint, Dobbs is in a unique position to completely rewrite his narrative and become an intriguing fantasy player to keep an eye on. Barring injury to Steelers’ starter Ben Roethlisberger, Dobbs isn’t expected to make too big a splash in the fantasy football pool in 2017. Leading up to his selection by Pittsburgh, Dobbs’ ADP in MFL10 leagues has been virtually nonexistent. Even though Dobbs’ value hasn’t (yet) registered with fantasy owners, there’s plenty to like about the situation the new Steelers’ QB has been presented with.
