I wrote a trend piece about the decline of the fullback position before the start of the season, and Vonta Leach, widely regarded as the league’s best fullback, admitted that he is a dying breed. I just didn’t see him fading away so quickly. According to totals kept by the NFL, Leach has played just 104 of 284 offensive snaps this season, and he was used as a receiver about 40 percent of the time, according to Pro Football Focus. His play participation is down 15 percent from a year ago, though I expect that he will be more involved as winter nears. Still, it’s hard to argue with results right now as the Ravens have one of the top offenses in the NFL.
