Jonathan Stewart led the NFL in a surprising category in 2014
Jonathan Stewart made quite a splash at the end of the 2014 season, over the final seven games (including two postseason games), Stewart failed to top 70 rushing yards just one time and became the go-to man in the run game for Carolina. Stewart has also been an active option in the passing game for Carolina as well.
What you may not have known to be one of Stewart's strengths in the pass game, is his ability to break tackles, which he is the best in the NFL at, according to Pro Football Focus.

That's a pretty strong stat, which also shows that Stewart may be a workhorse in the backfield for Carolina in 2015.
