It unfortunately seems like Vonta Leach will be going elsewhere. If that's the case, it's not so much that I'll be downgrading Ray Rice, he's still a solid first rounder in PPR. However, you definitely have to wonder which RB's move ahead of him in the first round of drafts due to that development.
Ray Rice or Marshawn Lynch?
Ray Rice or Alfred Morris?
Ray Rice or dare I say it, Chris Johnson?
To me, Vonta Leach was a huge part of that offense's ability to relentlessly grind out yards on the ground game, and made Ray Rice's TD-potential huge the season following the departure of career TD-vulture Willis McGahee. Leach is a rhinoceros, a tank.
Heck, I think I'm more interested to find out which team signs Leach, and draft THAT RB.
(I added Chris Johnson to the above rough list simply because I have a feeling that he'll get the annual hype-train going by the time real drafts happen, similar to Ryan Mathews last season)
