Benny Cunningham caught one ball for 18 yards

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Benny Cunningham INACTIVE Week 7

Benny Cunningham is inactive for the Chicago Bears for their Week 7 matchup with the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham was questionable heading into Sunday but was a full participant in practice on Friday, so there was some optimism he would suit up. After not seeing any touches last week, Cunningham is not a relevant fantasy running back who should be started in Week 7 anyway, but his absence could provide a slight boost to fellow running back Tarik Cohen.

Benny Cunningham sees no carries against Ravens

Benny Cunningham returned two kicks for 38 yards and had no carries or targets in the Bears' 27-24 overtime win over the Ravens Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham was only used in the return game against Baltimore. He holds no value in fantasy this season.

Benny Cunningham scores a touchdown on fake punt

The Bears saw something and called a fake punt. It worked as Benny Cunningham caught the ball for a 38-yard touchdown. Cunningham finished with two catches for 43 yards and one rush for four yards.

Fantasy Impact

Benny Cunningham holds little to no fantasy value despite his decent fantasy night. He only saw two offensive touches outside of the fake punt. The only way Cunningham gains fantasy relevancy outside of really deep leagues is if Jordan Howard or Tarik Cohen go down with an injury.

Benny Cunningham carries the ball five times on Thursday

The Bears lost in a lopsided 35-14 matchup. However, if you look beyond the score, it was really the Mike Glennon turnovers that made this outcome look uneven. Chicago actually out-gained the Packers by 50 yards on offense and had three more first downs. Benny Cunningham saw the field in this one. He carried the ball five times for 26 yards. He was not involved in the passing game. Will Mike Trubisky be the answer going forward? How many more games before he sees the field? These are all questions that John Fox and Ryan Pace must consider going forward.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham only holds value in deeper leagues. He should see five to seven touches a game, but is not an impactful enough player to consider owning in leagues with 16 or less teams.
