Jaguars' Benny Cunningham: Moves on to Jaguars
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars signed Cunningham to a contract Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

In the first year under the direction of coach Matt Nagy, Cunningham's touch count in Chicago decreased from 29 in 2017 to 12 last season. The presence of Jordan Howard (58 percent of the offensive snaps) and Tarik Cohen (46 percent) limited Cunningham's usage as the latter managed just 6.5 percent of those snaps. With the move to Jacksonville, Cunningham currently is no better than third on the RB depth chart behind Leonard Fournette and recent signee Alfred Blue. Cunningham may well be competing with 2018 seventh-rounder Dave Williams and veteran Thomas Rawls for one roster spot, assuming the Jaguars don't make another addition at the position in free agency or the draft.

Benny Cunningham: Checking out Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham will visit the Jaguars this week, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

Cunningham played 212 snaps on offense and 478 on special teams in 29 games for Chicago over the past two seasons, though he did get some work on passing downs in 2017 (20 receptions). Jacksonville represents the best-case scenario for his next landing spot, as the team has minimal backfield depth behind Leonard Fournette. With Carlos Hyde joining the Chiefs and both T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant (foot) still unsigned, the Jaguars are badly in need of a No. 2 running back -- preferably one that replace Fournette in passing situations.

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Set to hit free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham rushed six times for 13 yards in Chicago's Week 17 win over Minnesota to conclude the season with 11 carries for 20 yards along with one reception for nine yards.

Cunningham's biggest benefit to the Bears was his ability to play special teams, and he's been mostly an afterthought in the offense in his two years with the team. Going into his sixth season, he'll be an unrestricted free agent, and he'll likely have a role as a backup, though it's unlikely he'll be a big fantasy factor.

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Loses yardage in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham lost a yard on his only carry during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Packers.

The touch was Cunningham's first since Week 6. He's battled an ankle injury in the interim, but the lack of action is most certainly primarily due to Jordan Howard's and, to a lesser extent, Tarik Cohen's prominent roles in the run game. Cunningham hasn't had more than three carries in a game this season and, even if something were to change Sunday, the 49ers and their top-10 run defense are unlikely to give up much to the veteran back.

Bears' Benny Cunningham: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Cunningham sat out last week's loss to the Giants and was limited in Wednesday's practice, but he now appears to have fully recovered from his ankle injury. The kick returner is on track to suit up for the Week 14 tilt against the Rams.
