Rams | Benny Cunningham still has role

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 17:40:50 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham still has a significant role with the Rams despite Todd Gurley and Tre Mason in front of him in the St. Louis backfield. Cunningham's value lies in the return game and in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham has much more fantasy value in leagues that reward receptions and kick return yardage. He won't see many opportunities to run the ball as long as Gurley and Mason are healthy, but he's still be active as a pass-catcher and returner.

Rams | St. Louis not running ball well

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 17:11:10 -0700

St. Louis Rams RBs Todd Gurley, Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham have attributed to the Rams' league-worst 111 rushing yards in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Gurley missed the first two games of the season, and only ran for nine yards in his NFL debut in Week 3. He needs some time to get going. It may still be too soon to start Gurley ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), so look for other options at running back on FantasyScore.

Rams | Benny Cunningham totals 30 yards

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 17:05:36 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham carried once for 12 yards in the Week 3 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added two receptions for 18 yards on his only two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) was just behind Tre Mason ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in total yards from scrimmage, while Todd Gurley ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) also debuted with 14 yards on seven touches. Cunningham was actually the best FantasyScore value, but that's not saying much. This three-headed backfield is a work in progress, and fantasy players are the loser picking any of them right now.

Rams | Benny Cunningham might have company

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 19:20:02 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham shouldered the load in Week 1 with RB Tre Mason (hamstring) and rookie RB Todd Gurley (knee) inactive. However, Mason and Gurley each practiced in full, and all indications are Mason might be able to debut this week.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) did a great job against a solid Seattle defense in the opener, but he is now likely to split reps with Mason ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), who practiced in full and declared himself ready. Cunningham isn't as good of a value as he was in Week 1.

Rams | Tre Mason will not play in Week 1

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 08:34:29 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (thigh) has been declared inactive for the Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks. RB Benny Cunningham will be the starting running back for the Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should see most of the work at running back with Mason and Todd Gurley sidelined. He be facing a tough defense but could be a cheaper starting option on FantasyScore.

Rams | Tre Mason does not appear ready

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 07:34:02 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason's (thigh) playing status for the Week 1 game against the Seattle Seahawks does not appear to be optimistic at this point. RB Benny Cunningham likely would start at running back if Mason is not able to play.

Fantasy Tip: Mason ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) probably should be avoided by fantasy owners, because he could be limited if he active for the game. Cunningham ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be facing a tough opponent but could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore to consider.

Rams | Stream Benny Cunningham in Week 1?

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 18:26:39 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) might be a game-time decision for Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks, so RB Benny Cunningham could have a much bigger role in the opener game.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see plenty of touches against the Seahawks, although he would be more of a stream option if he were facing a less formidable defense. Still, he could surprise and save FantasyScore plenty of salary to spread across other spots.

Rams | Tre Mason questionable for Week 1

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 16:13:14 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason (hamstring) is questionable for Week 1. "Tre's doing good," head coach Jeff Fisher said. "He had two treatment sessions today, and he's doing well. So we'll see how he is during the week." RB Benny Cunningham is expected to have a larger role whether Mason plays or not.

Fantasy Tip: Mason ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) sounds like an iffy play on FantasyScore against the stout Seattle Seahawks. Cunningham ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be a decent low-end play.

Rams | Benny Cunningham on third down

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 05:29:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham will continue to be the third-down back in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham had a couple of big games last season, and head coach Jeff Fisher noted that Cunningham was the best blocker of the running backs. That will keep him on the field. He's an RB5 in fantasy.
