2. Grover Stewart, DT
Grover Stewart may have six seasons under his belt with the Colts, but this has arguably been his best one yet.
As one of the best defensive tackles, he makes the running game hard for opponents, which will be a big deal for the Cowboys. He is a massive presence for Indy, and even had 12 tackles in a game against the Tennessee Titans.
In fact, stellar RB Derrick Henry even told the nose tackle that “people need to start talking about” him after that game.
As a nose tackle, he may not get Pro Bowl or All-Pro nods, but he is certainly playing that way. For a team that relies on the 1-2 punch of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard, Stewart could be a serious threat.
Right now, Stewart is playing his best football. The DT has a career-best eight TFL, has already tied his career-high with 3.0 sacks, and has 53 tackles, which ties his career-best for a season in which he played 16 games.
Just because the Colts aren’t dominating as a team does not mean that this DT isn’t having one of the best possible seasons for a defensive lineman.
