1. Rory Sloane - Adelaide
Finished 4th in 2016 in the Brownlow tally, if he can find a bit more of the ball then expect him to easily shine end of season (33rd in total disposals – can you believe it!). Umpires love ball winners.
There’s not much competition for votes unlike Geelong (Selwood/Dangerfield) and Sydney (Kennedy/Hanneberry), and Sloane will be pushed to the test with a tough opening month of footy (Giants, Hawks, Power).
This presents a great opportunity for the young midfielder to climb the tally board early in 2017.
2. Nat Fyfe - Fremantle
Sitting out most of the 2016 season has left Nat with a tenacity unrivalled for the year ahead. He is bigger, fitter and stronger and is easily the favourite for the Brownlow in 2017.
Fremantle has a wealth of midfield contributors now, so expect Fyfe to spend some time forward again along with his healthy contested contributions in the midfield.
Let’s hope his leg holds up this year.
3. Dustin Martin - Richmond
Would you believe Dusty averages 5 clangers per game? Highest in the AFL. This is due to the enormous pressure he is under which will be released with the addition of Dion Prestia from the Gold Coast in the midfield in 2017.
A goal kicking midfielder, Dustin is our smoky for 2017.
A poor supporting cast has the 25yr old having to clean up scraps and wear the pressure each game, though we’ve all seen his x-factor and disposal ability. Finished 3rd in the Brownlow count in 2016, we believe safe money for a top 3 or 5 finish this season as well.
4. Patrick Dangerfield - Geelong
Can Dangerfield make it two in a row? 24 goals to go with his 24 games in 2016, all whilst wearing a double tag most games. Along with Fyfe, Dangerfield is easily one of the most dangerous players in the AFL and has carried games on his own two shoulders.
Would be hard pressed to find another top 3 contender in the coming season, a fairly safe bet due to his durability.
5. Sam Mitchell – West Coast
Mitchell will be put to work at the Eagles this year, a team that has struggled winning ball when their star Ruckman Natanui has missed games.
A win/win trade for both teams.
Crafty, quick and with a high football IQ; 2017 will see Mitchell (the 2012 winner) be a leading disposal getter for his new club and a chance and taking home the medal once more if his hamstrings hold up. A top 5 finisher most likely also.
