ColtPower's Power Player of the Week for last weekend's game is linebacker Cato June. Fellow linebacker Gary Brackett trailed June by just 1.5 points as the duo led the Colts in tackles with 13 each and even teamed up to make a tackle that stopped a Jets drive, forcing a punt.

Power Player of the Year Top Five Leaderboard

Robert Mathis (34 points): Mathis earns most of his power points with big plays versus a high number of tackles and assists, and this past week that trend continued. He now has 4.5 sacks, 3 quarterback hits, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 2.5 drive stops to his credit.
Montae Reagor (25.5 points): While there's a sizeable gap between Reagor and the top three, he is moving up the charts as well, moving out of a tie for fifth last week and knocking Raheem Brock out of fourth place year-to-date.

ColtPower's point system includes points for tackles, assists, sacks, passes defensed, and quarterback hits. Bonus points are awarded for forced fumbles,  fumble recoveries and interceptions. Points for turnovers are influenced by the field position at the end play, with turnovers deep in a team's territory counting for more (as high as 6 points) than those near midfield (as low as 2 points) on a gradually decreasing scale. Bonus points are also awarded for making a play that stops an opponent's drive with a tackle or pass defensed with points awarded based on field position at the time of the stop. Players receive more points for stopping a drive between their own goal line and the 20-yard line because of thwarting a red-zone touchdown opportunity. Likewise, they receive more points for stopping a drive between the opponent's goal line and 20-yard line because of the distinct field position advantage it provides to their offense.
