Benny Cunningham Jr.
RB - FA
Week 2 Outlook
Running back Benny Cunningham was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with an injury settlement.
Cunningham has been dealing with a hamstring injury and was waived with an injury settlement by the Jaguars despite what was thought to be a decent chance at making the final roster in Jacksonville.
Benny Cunningham carried the ball three times for eight yards Sunday against the Dolphins.
Cunningham saw his most work of the season in the OT contest against Miami. He'll continue to be a non-factor for fantasy purposes unless there is an injury to Tarik Cohen or Jordan Howard.
Benny Cunningham found paydirt on the Bears opening drive of their 27-20 win over the Chiefs on Saturday. Cunningham scampered in from 13 yards out for the score. He finished with seven carries for 22 yards to go along with three receptions for 29 yards.
With the Bears resting most of their starters, Cunningham drew the start on Saturday. Cunningham will not have fantasy value this season unless either Jordan Howard or Tarik Cohen miss time.
Benny Cunningham tallied six carries for 37 yards to lead the Bears in carries and yards during their 17-16 loss to the Ravens on Thursday. Cunningham also reeled in one catch for two yards.
Cunningham will be running back depth for the Bears with the ability to fill-in for either Jordan Howard or Tarik Cohen in both the running game and passing game as needed. He is not worth fantasy consideration.
The Bears game plan looked good throughout the first half and part of the fourth quarter. Benny Cunningham saw a little action, but he only finished with one catch for 18 yards.
Cunningham does not hold enough value to own outside of 18-team or larger leagues. Although he has cut into Tarik Cohen's playing time the last few weeks, leave him on the waiver wire.
