Benny Cunningham carried the ball nine times for 29 yards and caught one pass for five yards during the Rams' 31-34 loss to the Cowboys.

Benny "the Parasite" Cunningham continues to leech carries from the more talented feature-back Zac Stacy. It was reported earlier this season he Rams would go with the "hot hand," which was clearly Stacy Sunday, but Cunningham continued to steal carries. It's a frustrating situation for fantasy, but Stacy is the back to own and it's not particularly close.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball six times for 15 yards during the Rams' 19-17 victory over the Bucs on Sunday. He also caught one pass for four yards.

Cunningham was used almost exclusively as a third-down compliment to Zac Stacy. He had one drive to himself but did absolutely nothing with it. He's no more than a handcuff at this point.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball five times for 21 yards and caught four passes for 30 yards against the Vikings Sunday.

The controversy ensues. Before the game, both Cunningham and starter Zac Stacy were taking reps with the first team. Stacy received most of the carries early, but as the Rams sunk further into a hole, Cunningham began to make more appearances. If today is any indication, it looks like Stacy and Cunningham will be in a timeshare, with Stacy getting the early down work and Cunningham catching the passes. He's still just a handcuff.

 Benny Cunningham has been the team’s best running back during the preseason and could push RB Zac Stacy for playing time this season.

Cunningham played in 14 games for the Rams last season with his best performances coming in week 10 and 12 where he rushed for 181 of his 261 total rushing yards last year. Stacy is being drafted in the second round of most drafts so, if Cunningham is outperforming him in camp and may take away some carries those who have not yet drafted might want to avoid Stacy as his value may decrease.
