Benny Cunningham carried the ball two times for five yards and caught three passes for 23 yards during the Rams' 12-6 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

Cunningham has lost nearly all of his work to Tre Mason and Tavon Austin. When Zac Stacy was usurped from the starting role earlier this season, most assumed the Rams' backfield work would be split between Cunningham and Mason. Unfortunately for Benny, he's just a fading shadow in the rear-view mirror. Adios, amigo.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball two times for seven yards and caught four passes for 31 yards during the Rams' 22-7 win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Cunningham hasn't been more than an ancillary piece of the Rams' rushing attack all season, and it looks like Tre Mason has taken the lead role for good. Cunningham could see a jump in touches next week, but his ceiling seems to be set pretty low in that regard and he's losing appeal as even a desperation play.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball four times for 12 yards and a touchdown during the Rams' 31-14 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday. He also caught two passes for 16 yards.

While Tre Mason seems to have assumed the Rams' lead-back roles, Benny has secured the goal line and passing down work. It's a tough situation for fantasy as Tre Mason is unlikely to score touchdowns and Benny Cunningham is getting limited carries. They're both RB3/FLEX options.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball four times for 10 yards and caught three passes for 38 yards during the Rams' 13-10 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

Cunningham has quickly become the No. 1 passing target in the Rams' offense. He blocks well and the Rams like the spark he provides when catching screens. Tre Mason, however, appears to have the upper-leg on rushing attempts going forward, as he garnered 19 of the team's 27 totes.

Benny Cunningham had four carries for 27 yards and caught one pass for eight yards during the Rams' 7-34 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

Cunningham was the most effective runner Sunday, although he was given the fewest carries out of the backfield. It looked as if Tre Mason seized the job with his excellent performance last week, but it appears the Rams hate fantasy football and winning and therefore want to make their running back situation as complicated and unproductive as possible.

Benny Cunningham (knee) practiced in full on Friday.

Behind Tre Mason, Cunningham is expected to see some touches on Sunday. With Zach Stacy seemingly out of the mix, Cunningham and Mason will likely see the bulk of carries. While Cunningham will be good to go for Sunday's game, he should't be started in fantasy, as it's impossible to predict if any of the Rams running backs see enough touches to produce a solid stat line.

Benny Cunningham caught five passes on five targets for 46 yards and a touchdown during the Rams' 28-26 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. He also rushed twice for three yards.

Cunningham made the start over Zac Stacy Sunday, but after the first drive he was used exclusively in passing situations. It appears the Rams want to feature rookie Tre Mason going forward, with Cunningham handling the passing work. He should be a low-end flex play going forward.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball seven times for 21 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards during the Rams' 17-31 loss to the 49ers on Monday night.

Cunningham vultured a touchdown early in the first quarter on his first carry. It was mostly Zac Stacy early on, but he was benched after gaining just 17 yards on eight carries. Cunningham out-snapped Stacy and rookie Tre Mason made his presence known, leading the team in rushing. The Rams' backfield is a mess, but stay tuned as more news will likely emerge this week as to leader of this RBBC.

Benny Cunningham carried the ball seven times for 47 yards and a touchdown during the Rams' 28-34 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. He also caught three passes for 24 yards.

Cunningham was gifted a 14-yard touchdown run right after entering the game in place of the injured starter Zac Stacy. Cunningham isn't a great talent, but he should be owned in all leagues until more information surfaces about Stacy's status heading into Week 6.

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.
