RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Seemingly buried on the running back depth chart behind Zac Stacy and Tre Mason to begin the 2014 season, Cunningham ended up carving a little niche for himself as a third-down back to finish off the campaign. While he only had one game with more than 30 yards rushing, he did collect 45 catches for 352 yards and a touchdown by the end of the season. With Stacy gone and Todd Gurley in town, Cunningham's 2015 role is unlikely to change. He should still pick up three to five catches a game with an occasional rush attempt thrown in there, especially if Gurley is not ready for the beginning of the season.

2014

An undrafted signee out of Middle Tennessee, Cunningham impressed in his limited opportunities last season, particularly when he saw heavier work in Weeks 10 and 12, turning a total of 20 carries into 181 yards and a touchdown in those two games. He was sparingly used otherwise and figures to again slot into a depth role this year, backing up Zac Stacy, with rookie Tre Mason also in the mix on that front. The explosive Cunningham will also serve as the Rams' primary kick returner.
