Role grows down the stretch

December 31, 2018
Cunningham logged 29 offensive snaps but was not targeted in the passing game during Sunday's season finale against the Packers.
Signed from the practice squad in mid-December, Cunningham played a larger role in the Lions offense week after week for the final three games of the season. This opportunity likely wouldn't have presented itself had Michael Roberts (shoulder) stayed healthy, but Cunningham nonetheless fared well as a third-string tight end who didn't log many receiving assignments. With both Levine Toilolo and Luke Willson (concussion) set to become unrestricted free agents at the end of the league year, Cunningham -- who will be a restricted free agent -- seems to have decent odds of sticking around in Detroit for another season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Cunningham was claimed off waivers after being waived by both the Giants and the Jets, but his prospects of making an impact are dim as he ranks definitively behind leading 2015 receiver Delanie Walker, blocking specialist Craig Stevens and all-around contributor Anthony Fasano at the tight end position. The second-year pro does have a chance of making the 53-man roster and adding to his career total of 59 receiving yards if he can impress compared to Phillip Supernaw and undrafted rookie Alex Ellis.

Waived by the Giants in August after failing to claim a backup tight end job.
