Benny Cunningham signs with Bears

The Chicago Bears have signed free agent running back Benny Cunningham on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham, a career backup with the Rams, signed with the Bears Tuesday. With Jordan Howard, Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey all under contract, Cunningham is unlikely to enter 2017 with any fantasy relevancy.

Benny Cunningham placed on season-ending injured reserve

Benny Cunningham has been placed on season-ending injured reserve with a neck injury. Cunningham went down in Week 13 and hasn't played since. Cunningham finished the season with 192 total yards on 37 total touches. Cunningham is in the final year of his deal and could be looking for a new team in 2017.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham filled in behind Todd Gurley this season as a change-of-pace back but wasn't very effective. Gurley expects to pick up a few more touches moving forward this season with the Rams looking to upgrade next season.

Benny Cunningham catches one pass vs Ravens

Benny Cunningham had one carry for no yards, but had a big catch for 20 yards against the Ravens in a Week 11 loss.

Fantasy Impact

With Tre Mason inactive, Cunningham's reception went for a crucial 1st down, but he was otherwise not utilized against the Ravens. He isn't a fantasy factor in a milquetoast Rams offense.

Benny Cunningham still catching passes for Rams

Benny Cunningham had no carries, but caught two balls for 28 yards in the Rams 24-10 loss in Green Bay.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham rotated with Tre Mason behind workhorse back Todd Gurley. Like Mason, he offers little to no fantasy value as long as Gurley is healthy.

Benny Cunningham does little in Arizona

Benny Cunningham had two carries for no yards and two catches for four yards in the Rams win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham is a better receiver than Tre Mason, and will continue to have a role in the passing game. However, with Todd Gurley healthy and the true workhorse of the Rams backfield, Cunningham is no longer fantasy relevant.
