Cameron Jordan 

For Jordan, the 2016 season has not been a bad one, but it definitely could be better. After a bad game against the Raiders, he came back and played really well against the Giants. He showed exactly why he is one of the leaders on Dennis Allen’s new defense.

Jordan might be the most important player on the defense. He might also be the best, but what is good about him is the position he plays. Pass rusher might be Saints biggest need despite having Jordan. So having him around and being as good as he is really help hide maybe the biggest weakness this teams has.

Last season Jordan was one of the best defensive linemen in the entire league. He played maybe the best game against the Falcons in the superdone and took Matt Ryan down 3 times. Hopefully we will see that again Monday.
