RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught five passes for 101 yards in Wednesday's 24-19 loss to the Redblacks.

The third-year CFL receiver topped 100 receiving yards for the first time this season but has been Darian Durant's most consistent target so far in 2017, racking up 60 yards or catching a TD pass in four of five games so far. Cunningham should remain on the fantasy radar next week when the Als travel to Winnipeg.

July 14, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught four passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 30-23 win over the Stampeders.

While the Als' passing game hasn't exactly been firing on all cylinders so far, Cunningham has remained a fairly consistent fantasy producer and now has 15 catches for 265 yards and two TDs through four games, putting him on pace for a career year.

July 6, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught five passes for 62 yards in Thursday's 23-16 loss to the Lions.

His 34-yard catch in the fourth quarter deep into BC territory helped set up Montreal's only touchdown of the game. Cunningham's five catches were a season high but Darian Durant doesn't yet have the Als' offense firing on all cylinders, which could make Cunningham an inconsistent fantasy option as the team's best deep threat.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught four passes for a team-high 90 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 17-16 win over the Roughriders.

He also ran for 21 yards on his lone carry. Cunningham's 65-yard catch opened the scoring in the second quarter, but he was quiet most of the rest of the night. The 28-year-old took a step forward last season in his second CFL campaign, catching 65 passes for 855 yards and four TDs in 17 games, and he's on his way to matching or exceeding those numbers in what could be a breakout season.

June 22, 2017

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham will start at slotback in Thursday's season opener against the Roughriders.

Cunningham was one of the Alouettes' top options in the passing game last year, racking up 855 yards over 17 games, and he figures to occupy a similar role in 2017.

November 6, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught three passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over the Tiger-Cats.

It was his first TD since Week 15 and best yardage total since Week 13, as Cunningham faded after a quick start to the season. The second-year player still set career highs in receptions (65) and yards (855) in 2016, and should be an important part of a young Als passing attack next year.

October 3, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Argos.

It's Cunningham's first TD in seven games and just his third on the season, as the Alouettes' normally quiet passing game hasn't afforded him many scoring opportunities. He could find paydirt two weeks in a row though, as Montreal could be forced into a shootout next Monday when they host Edmonton.

September 17, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught seven passes for 63 yards Friday, both team highs, in a loss to the Tiger-Cats.

Hamilton's defense didn't allow Rakeem Cato to build any momentum on offense, but Cunningham was still able to post moderately useful numbers. He's been Cato's favorite target so far, and that's not likely to change unless the Als make another switch at quarterback.

September 10, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught five passes for a team-high 101 yards in Friday's loss to the Lions.

New starting quarterback Rakeem Cato spread the ball around evenly among his three main targets, but Cunningham did the most damage with his targets. Look for the whole Alouettes' passing game to perk up next Friday in Hamilton in what could be a shootout against Zach Collaros and the Ti-Cats.

August 27, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham totaled 80 yards and a two-point conversion on eight receptions in Friday's 32-18 loss to the Blue Bombers. He did not gain any yards on his sole rush.

The 27-year-old's reception total was a high-water mark in 2016, while his 80 yards represented his second-best total of the season in that category. Cunningham's numbers actually paced all receivers on the night, while his two-point conversion catch helped give the Als what would be a rare lead on the night in the second quarter. Cunningham has notably stepped up his production in the last three weeks, with 16 receptions for 242 yards over that span.

August 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham amassed 64 yards on three catches and tallied 12 yards and a touchdown on his sole carry in Friday's 43-19 victory over the Redblacks.

The 27-year-old wideout made the most of his limited touches, capping a six-play, 75-yard drive early in the third quarter with a rushing touchdown on a sweep. Cunningham also made a juggling over-the-shoulder grab on one of his receptions, while making another key grab over the middle to extend the third-quarter drive that he eventually scored on. The 21.3 YPC for the night was Cunningham's best since Week 1 and he now has 12 receptions for 217 yards over his last three games.

August 12, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham tallied a team-high 98 yards on five catches in Thursday's 23-12 loss to the Eskimos.

The 27-year-old has already equaled his reception total from last season, while his yardage total served as his season high in that category. Cunningham's night included a spectacular leaping 42-yard grab early in the second quarter, and he generally thrived as a result of the Eskimos effectively blanketing No. 1 wideout Duron Carter the majority of the game. Although he can't necessarily be counted on to offer this type of production weekly, Cunningham does serve as an important secondary component of the Als offense on most weeks.

August 5, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's loss to the Lions.

Although he's been seeing minimal targets Cunningham has scored in two straight games, salvaging his fantasy value. He's still only caught 17 passes for 166 yards over the last four games though, making him a very risky play as long as Duron Carter is dominating the looks from QB Kevin Glenn.

July 16, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Cunningham caught six passes for 63 yards in Friday's loss to the Tiger-Cats.

Injuries to Kenny Stafford (toe) and S.J. Green (knee) have pushed Cunningham into a starting role and he responded with a solid effort his first time out despite some erratic quarterback play from Rakeen Cato and Vernon Adams Jr. Kevin Glenn (eye) could be back under center by Montreal's next game July 25 in Toronto though, which should provide a better look at what Cunningham's capable of with a larger workload.
