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.

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.
