Cunningham rushed for no yards on one carry and caught one pass for 20 yards in Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Ravens. With Tre Mason inactive for the game, one would have expected Cunningham to see a few more looks. Sunday's game, however, appears to be around Cunningham's ceiling, getting a touch or two a game.
Cunningham was held without a target in a 27-6 victory against San Francisco on Sunday. Cunningham also didn't register a carry, with Tre Mason taking the lion's share of the garbage time. Cunningham wasn't getting many looks before Sunday, but he usually gets either a carry or two or a few targets. The St. Louis offense outside of Todd Gurley is extremely hard to figure out, so it's best to avoid using Cunningham.
Cunningham rushed four times for 11 yards and caught two balls for 13 yards in a 24-6 win against Cleveland on Sunday. Cunningham benefited from Tre Mason's absence and contributed his usual few catches out of the backfield. With Todd Gurley's emergence, Cunningham will only see meaningful time on third down.
Rams running back Benny Cunningham caught both targets on Sunday for 28 yards but did not get a rushing attempt in a 24-10 loss to Green Bay. With Todd Gurley becoming the workhorse back, Cunningham is going to be relegated strictly to third-down pass catcher out of the backfield. Sunday's output should be about typical from now on, and the ceiling on Cunningham is quite low.
Rams running back Benny Cunningham toted the ball twice for zero yards and caught a pair of passes for four yards in a 24-22 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday. Cunningham averaged a single yard every time he touched the ball, although he still touched the ball more than fellow running back Tre Mason. Cunningham will continue to see the field on third down and catch a pass or two, but don't expect too much more than Sunday's output.
