'Pounder' Leach should help BAL RB Ray Rice grind it out

Baltimore Sun - [Full Article]

When the Ravens agreed to a three-year contract with fullback Vonta Leach on Sunday, it was an indication of the team's offensive plans.

The Ravens want to return to old-school football, where they grind a team with their defense and pound it into submission with a strong running game. Few players like collisions the way Leach does.

"I'm very excited, and [I] watched what he did for Arian Foster," said Ray Rice. "He is an amazing back, and he lays the wood on people. I can't wait to follow him. He is all about business and all about hard work."

Fantasy Impact: 

This could be one of those signings that makes at least a little difference in both Foster and Rice's season. It remains to be seen how much Foster will miss him, but as of now this can only help Rice's production. Foster, of course, is our top-rated RB while Rice is sixth in standard leagues. We have Rice as the third-best back in PPR leagues.
