Bears' Benny Cunningham: Back with Bears
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham will re-sign with the Bears, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Cunningham will thus reprise his role as a depth back and core special teams player for the Bears after carrying nine times for 29 yards and catching 20 passes for 240 yards and two TDs for the team in 2017. From a fantasy standpoint, however, Cunningham is clearly behind both lead back Jordan Howard and top change-of-pace man Tarik Cohen.

Benny Cunningham: Visiting with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham is visiting the Buccaneers on Sunday, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

This is Cunningham's first reported visit in free agency, with the 27-year-old finally drawing some interest now that the top running backs are off the market. He'd likely compete for a passing-down role and special teams work in Tampa Bay, potentially serving as a low-cost replacement for fellow free agent Charles Sims. Cunningham had nine carries for 29 yards and 20 catches for 240 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games with the Bears last season. He's averaged 4.3 yards on 180 career carries and 6.7 yards on 147 targets (113 receptions).

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Catches one pass in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham caught one pass for six yards in the Week 17 loss to the VIkings. He ended the season with nine carries for 29 yards along with 20 receptions for 240 yards and two touchdowns.

Cunningham was a core special-teamer who returned 26 kickoffs, and also shared passing-down work out of the backfield with Tarik Cohen. WIth his one-year contract having expired, he'll be an unrestricted free agent and should have no trouble latching onto a similar role with another squad if he doesn't re-sign with the Bears. With an average of 40 touches over the last three years, he'll likely continue to be a depth option in fantasy leagues.

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Scores touchdown in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham caught four passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's defeat to the Lions.

Cunningham was largely invisible until the Bears fell behind 20-3 in the second half, then found himself frequently operating as the receiving back in the hurry-up offense. As a result, he was targeted five times, and was able to turn a screen pass into a short touchdown in the fourth quarter. His 33 yards of offense was his highest total since Week 4, and this was the first time he posted 20 yards of offense in any of his last five games. With fewer than 200 total yards on the season, he hasn't been a strong fantasy option.

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Hauls in two passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham caught two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bengals.

For the second straight week, Cunningham has taken a backseat to rookie phenom Tarik Cohen, as he only served as an occasional third-down back. With just 11 touches over the last six games, he's offered fantasy owners very little production.
