Benny Cunningham could be sneaky play in Week 13
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rams running back Benny Cunningham could be a sneaky play heading into Sunday's showdown at San Francisco in Week 13.

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.

Benny Cunningham runs for 109 yards, touchdown
by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer

Rams running back Benny Cunningham, working in relief of starter Zac Stacy -- who left the game in the first half with a possible concussion -- set a new career high with 109 rushing yards on 13 carries, scoring the first touchdown of his career. 

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.
