Bears | Bears nab Benny Cunningham

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 18:49:34 -0700

Free-agent RB Benny Cunningham (Rams) signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears Tuesday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Jordan Howard is already installed as the starting running back in Chicago but Cunningham could vie for work behind him. He'll have to compete with the likes of Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey, though, and even if he does emerge from that with regular carries, it won't propel him enough to have any value for fantasy purposes.

Jets | Benny Cunningham visiting Jets

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 16:24:15 -0800

Free-agent RB Benny Cunningham (Rams) is scheduled to meet with the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham never really showed anything in his four seasons with the Rams, and it's highly unlikely he'd see enough work out of the New York backfield to merit any interest in fantasy circles. He would just be an extra body on the depth chart.

Rams | Benny Cunningham expected to play

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 22:21:06 -0700

Los Angeles Rams RB Benny Cunningham (hamstring) should be available to play in the Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills, head coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham is the primary backup behind Todd Gurley, but he is unlikely to see much in the way of meaningful playing time. His fantasy appeal remains minimal as long as Gurley is healthy.

Rams | Benny Cunningham finds end zone

Sat, 13 Aug 2016 20:33:33 -0700

Los Angeles Rams RB Benny Cunningham rushed four times for 23 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Dallas Cowboys. He also had one reception for 20 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham is an impressive back behind Todd Gurley, but he'll obviously see few touches as long as the second-year stud running back is healthy. Even with Gurley healthy, Cunningham could have some value in deeper PPR leagues as a third-down option.

Rams | Todd Gurley to play more on third down?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 20:18:28 -0700

Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley will likely see some playing time on third downs, according to beat writer Myles Simmons, but Simmons believes RB Benny Cunningham will still see most of the snaps in third-and-long situations.

Fantasy Tip: Gurley isn't going to come off the field often, and he should be either the first or second running back off the board. Even as the main third-down back, Cunningham is only a late-round flier in PPR formats.

Rams | Benny Cunningham returning to Rams

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 09:42:48 -0700

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Benny Cunningham signed his tender offer Friday, April 8, to remain with the Rams. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham is buried on St. Louis' depth chart right now behind stud Todd Gurley and Tre Mason, so it would likely take an injury ahead of him to make Cunningham fantasy relevant outside of the deepest leagues.

Patriots | Benny Cunningham visiting Patriots

Thu, 10 Mar 2016 09:11:20 -0800

Rams | Benny Cunningham tendered

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 11:22:27 -0800

St. Louis Rams restricted free-agent RB Benny Cunningham received the low tender Wednesday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham isn't guaranteed to return to the Rams, he's an underrated pass-catching running back and a valuable kick returner. He'll have PPR value wherever he plays, but don't view him as a starter.

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.

Reynolds, Sims, Cunningham and Alexander did not practice Friday, Oct. 2, while Laurinaitis practiced in full.

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.

Rams | Isaiah Pead could be dumped by Rams

Sun, 08 Feb 2015 17:18:29 -0800

The St. Louis Rams might consider releasing RB Isaiah Pead this offseason. The move would create just under $941,000 of additional cap space. The club has RBs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham, Zac Stacy and Trey Watts on the roster, and Pead hasn't had much impact since being drafted in the second round in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Pead has been a huge disappointment, and he is well buried on the depth chart. He could latch on with another organization if released, but he has a long way to go to climb back into the fantasy picture.

Rams | St. Louis to stick with one RB?

Sat, 01 Nov 2014 12:30:50 -0700

St. Louis Rams RBs Zac Stacy, Benny Cunningham and Tre Mason have split repetitions in the Rams' backfield this year, but head coach Jeff Fisher hinted that the team could stick with one guy going forward, though he didn't indicate who that would be.

Fantasy Tip: Mason has performed the best on the ground so far this year while Cunningham has done well in the passing game. Stacy has seen a relegated role of late, so he may end up being the odd man out. For now, it's best to avoid all of them.

Rams | Rams split RB snaps evenly in Week 8

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 13:10:29 -0700

St. Louis Rams RBs Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham each were on the field for 18 snaps in Week 8. RB Zac Stacy received 15 snaps during the game.

Fantasy Tip: None of the running backs had big offensive games in Week 8, so they all probably will continue to receive some playing time moving forward. Mason is still probably the most valuable running back in terms of fantasy but should be a matchup play.

Rams | Benny Cunningham probable for Week 8

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:22:34 -0700

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 24, and is probable for Week 8 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham ($3,000) is intriguing at FantasyScore because of his price, but the mystery surrounding the Rams backfield makes him a gamble. Cunningham has more appeal in point-per-reception leagues, though, making him a decent flex option against the Chiefs.
