Cunningham finished with 9 yards. He also caught two passes for 16 yards. The team trailed most of the game, and was forced to abandon the run game early. Cunningham will look for more action against the Saints Week 15.
After rushing for 100-plus yards his last time out,
Stacy got the start and the bulk of the carries while Cunningham was relegated to the backup role. He rushed for 16 yards on two carries in a 23-13 defeat.
The Rams will travel to Arizona for a showdown against the Cardinals in Week 14.
Cunningham stepped up in place of an injured Zac Stacy (head) and reached a new career high with 109 rushing yards on 13 carries and a touchdown. Fantasy owners will have to monitor Stacy's status in the next few days. If he does not pass a series of league-mandated tests, then Cunningham will likely get the starting nod on Sunday.
If he starts, Cunningham would be facing a San Francisco defense that has allowed 103.5 yards per game on the ground, which is the 12th fewest allowed in the league. Opposing running backs have scored 16.91 Fantasy points per game this season against the 49ers. Stacy owners should be rushing to scoop him up from the waiver wire. Consider Cunningham as a decent flex option for Week 13.
Cunningham now has 181 rushing yards in his last two games, which have come against the league's fifth-worst rushing defense (the Colts) and the league's second-worst rushing defense (the Bears). Before this two-game stretch, Cunningham had 57 rushing yards on the season, with a career high of 16.
The Rams face the 49ers in Week 13.
