Benny Cunningham sees two carries against Titans

The Bears should know who is going to make the team at the running back position by now. Benny Cunningham was the fourth back used in the game against the Titans on Sunday. He saw two carries and gained seven yards. His longest gain was nine yards.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham is likely on the bubble. The injury to Ka'Deem Carey (wrist) might have been enough to secure Cunningham a roster spot to start the season. Do not be surprised though if he gets cut once Carey returns.

Benny Cunningham saw seven carries on Thursday

The Bears brought in Benny Cunningham before they drafted Tarik Cohen. Cunningham is now fighting for a roster spot, and showed he deserved one in Thursday's preseason game against the Broncos. Cunningham saw seven carries for 41 yards and a touchdown. He also added two catches for 25 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Cunningham does not have any fantasy value at this point, but if he keeps playing like this in the preseason, the Bears might have to keep him. This means Jeremy Langford (ankle) and Ka'Deem Carey might be fighting for the final spot. Keep an eye on the back end of this running back rotation as September approaches.

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.
