Rams Beat: Benny Cunningham expected to 'take on a larger role' in Week 6

ESPN - [Full Article]

With Rams running back Zac Stacy dealing with a quadriceps injury, Benny Cunningham is expected to take on a larger role even if Stacy is able to play. The duo has been splitting snaps but Jeff Fisher said this week he's happy with how Cunningham performed in place of Stacy last week. However, the Rams are facing San Francisco's third-ranked rushing defense, which makes for a tough matchup regardless of who is getting the carries.

Fantasy Impact: 

He didn't practice on Thursday and his Friday participation is at this point unknown. The Rams don't play until Monday night, so this is a dicey situation for owners. Cunningham is a good Plan B, though the Rams did say earlier in the week that they expected that Stacy would be out there Monday night.
