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

Los Angeles Rams restricted free-agent RB Benny Cunningham is visiting with the New England Patriots Thursday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: Cunningham is probably no more than a RB5 handcuff if he remains with the Rams.

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.
