Report: FB Vonta Leach expected to sign with Dolphins

That was the sentiment shared by ESPN's Adam Schefter on Monday, who added that it would be a "major upset" if Vonta Leach didn't sign with Miami because the "Dolphins want him too much." Leach has been unemployed since June 11 when the Ravens cut him after the team and the player's representatives couldn't come to an agreement on a restructured contract. Leach graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 lead blocker last season, and he has been named a first-team All-Pro for three consecutive years.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Dolphins' offensive line is in a state of transition after Jake Long went to the Rams as a free agent in March. That line ranked in the bottom-10 of the league last year, but Leach would instantly improve Miami's run game. It's no coincidence that Leach has been the lead man for Ray Rice and Arian Foster in recent years; he played a significant role in their success. Lamar Miller @millertime_6's fantasy stock should take a tick up if the Dolphins can work out a contract with Leach.
