Win My Fantasy League
At this point, fantasy managers are trying to figure out exactly what is going on with Zack Cunningham. Drafted as an LB1 and even an IDP1, Cunningham has arguably been the most disappointing ID player through six weeks of action. Cunningham saw a season-low 29 percent of the snaps in Week 6 and is starting to look like a drop candidate. The suggestion here is to hold onto him during the byes on the off chance that he turns it around, but the recent signs do not look good. Cunningham is not listed on the injury report with any sort of ailment. He just has not been producing and is losing snaps in Houston. It probably does not help that Christian Kirksey is soaking up tackles at the position, but Cunningham was able to produce alongside Benardrick McKinney and Tyrell Adams last season. Cunningham appears to have fallen behind Kamu Grugier-Hill and is no longer a startable option at all. KGH has seen his snaps increase every week that he has been healthy and, after playing 100 percent of the snaps for two straight weeks, appears locked into the nickel role beside Kirksey. As hard as it may be to do on someone you spent significant draft capital on, Cunningham needs to be benched in all formats. Forget the fact that the Texans have a plus matchup against the Cardinals on tap. Cunningham is not playing enough to warrant a starting spot.
