The coaching staff has made a point of saying they will get him the ball more this season, and they have already shown this in the preseason.
Will he get the ball more than Rice in game 1? That's the question. Leon may very well be the better back for the year but in week 1 I'd roll with Rice. KC was almost dead last vs the rush last year while giving up the 4th most tds on the ground. (25tds in 2008.)
