WHAT TO EXPECT Early leader, most games polling, first-year stars

Best Chance: Jordan Dawson
A move into the midfield led to a career-best season for the Adelaide captain, who found plenty of the footy and was damaging in the forward half. He's predicted to poll in six of his side's first nine games, which could put him in contention at the campaign's halfway point. But, if he's among the leaders early, a quieter end to the season could hamper his chances.

One-Vote Wonder: Mitch Hinge (Round 21 v Gold Coast)
Don't be surprised if the Adelaide defender polls his first career Brownlow votes for a terrific performance late in the year against Gold Coast. He won 31 disposals, had 14 intercept possessions and finished with 451m gained in a high point for his season.

Previous Winners: Mark Ricciuto (2003)

Best Chance: Lachie Neale
The Brisbane ball-magnet and 2020 Brownlow Medal winner is a proven vote-getter and will again be among the leading contenders this season. He's polled more than 25 votes in three of his past four seasons and was easily the side's best ball-winning threat this year. Expect him to feature heavily in the votes throughout the Lions' 17 wins this season.

One-Vote Wonder: Jack Payne (Round 8 v Carlton)
The Brisbane defender kept Coleman Medal winner Charlie Curnow to just one goal while having an offensive impact himself. He finished with 13 disposals, eight intercept possessions and five intercept marks. Enough to earn his first career Brownlow Medal votes?

Best Chance: Charlie Curnow
The back-to-back Coleman Medal winner will likely vie with his captain and reigning Brownlow Medal winner Patrick Cripps as Carlton's best chance. He kicked a career-high 78 goals this season, including six games with five or more majors. Expect him to feature heavily in the votes throughout those performances, which could take him towards the top.

One-Vote Wonder: Jack Silvagni (Round 18 v Port Adelaide)
The versatile Carlton forward did it all against the high-flying Port Adelaide. Playing as a makeshift ruck, Silvagni kicked four goals to go with 19 disposals, five marks, 11 score involvements and 10 hitouts. Expect to see him rewarded with his first Brownlow votes.

Previous Winners: Bert Deacon (1947), John James (1961), Gordon Collis (1964), Greg Williams (1994), Chris Judd (2010), Patrick Cripps (2022)

Best Chance: Nick Daicos
Don't be surprised if the second-year midfielder is the runaway leader at round 18. The question will then revolve around whether he can hang on. An unfortunately timed knee injury ruled him out of the season's last three matches, which could hamper his chances. But, regardless, he will be among the Brownlow favourites for years to come.

One-Vote Wonder: Jack Ginnivan (Round 24 v Essendon)
The Collingwood fan-favourite only started eight games in a frustrating season from an individual perspective, but he had an impact in the final round. He kicked three goals and had three goal assists from 17 disposals, which could put him in line for votes.

Best Chance: Darcy Parish
Zach Merrett will likely score Essendon's most votes, but is ineligible due to suspension. It makes Parish the side's leading contender, despite a calf injury ruling him out for five matches midway through the campaign. He was still ultra-consistent when he was on the park, with his prolific ball-winning abilities likely to be enough to secure a heap of votes.

One-Vote Wonder: Archie Perkins (Round 1 v Hawthorn)
It was a hot start to the year for the Essendon youngster. He kicked three goals, had two goal assists and 10 score involvements from 20 disposals in a round one win over Hawthorn. Expect that performance to be rewarded with rare Brownlow votes.

Best Chance: Andrew Brayshaw
A suspension makes Caleb Serong ineligible, therefore Brayshaw is likely Fremantle's best chance. The Dockers youngster is a proven vote-winner, amassing 25 last season, and enjoyed a strong finish to the campaign. Despite a disappointing campaign from a team perspective, expect him to feature prominently in the votes during Fremantle's 10 wins.

One-Vote Wonder: Sam Switkowski (Round 3 v West Coast)
The Fremantle forward has just one career Brownlow vote to his name, but could add to that on Monday night. He finished with 21 disposals, two goals, 10 score involvements and six tackles in a Derby win over West Coast. Expect him to be among the votes.

Previous Winners: Nat Fyfe (2015, 2019)

Best Chance: Jeremy Cameron
A hot start should put the Geelong forward among the leading contenders edging towards the midway point of the campaign. He kicked 33 goals from the side's first eight games, and should feature prominently in the votes throughout that period. He endured a quieter second half of the season, but should still lead the Cats for votes as he did last year.

One-Vote Wonder: Gary Rohan (Round 15 v Melbourne)
Rohan was crucial in Geelong's big win over Melbourne partway through the year. He kicked three goals from 16 disposals while also amassing nine score involvements and two more goal assists. It could see him add to his eight career Brownlow Medal votes.

Best Chance: Noah Anderson
It was a breakout season for the Gold Coast midfielder, who shined in the absence of skipper Touk Miller when he missed 10 weeks due to injury midway through the season. Matt Rowell also performed admirably during this period, but Anderson was the team's standout performer and should see that rewarded on Brownlow night.

One-Vote Wonder: Rory Atkins (Round 18 v St Kilda)
In caretaker coach Steven King's first game in charge, Atkins stood the tallest. He went into the midfield and finished with 32 disposals, two goals and 716m gained. That complemented seven score involvements and seven intercepts in his best game for the year.

Previous Winners: Gary Ablett jnr (2013)

Best Chance: Toby Greene
There was good reason for Greene's selection as All-Australian captain. The Giants skipper enjoyed a career-best year, kicking 60 goals for the first time and still managing to impact games in many other ways. Stephen Coniglio and Josh Kelly were also strong, while Tom Green is ineligible, but expect the classy Giants forward to be the side's leading contender.

One-Vote Wonder: Jake Riccardi (Round 14 v Fremantle)
After being dropped earlier in the season, the Giants forward found form by kicking five goals from 15 disposals and eight marks in a big win over the Dockers. Should he be rewarded for his efforts, it would be Riccardi's first career Brownlow votes.

Best Chance: Jai Newcombe
With captain James Sicily suspended, expect Hawthorn midfielder Jai Newcombe to be the team's leading contender. He enjoyed a breakout year, with his rugged clearance and contested work a feature throughout. Expect him to poll well in the Hawks' seven victories and vie with Sicily as the side's leading vote getter.

One-Vote Wonder: Connor Macdonald (Round 13 v Brisbane)
The young midfielder had a stellar impact against the high-flying Brisbane. He finished with 28 disposals and two goals while he also had 12 score involvements and a further three goal assists. Expect it to result in the second-year midfielder's first career votes.

Best Chance: Christian Petracca
It was another season where the Melbourne midfielder combined his prolific ball-winning abilities with serious damage in the forward half and should be among the leading contenders. Petracca has polled 20-plus votes in his past three seasons and should get more during the 10 matches Clayton Oliver spent sidelined due to injury.

One-Vote Wonder: Kade Chandler (Round 7 v North Melbourne)
The small forward could be in line for his first career Brownlow votes following an impressive performance in a dominant Demons win. He kicked three goals from 21 disposals and eight marks while also having eight score involvements. Enough to poll?

Best Chance: Luke Davies-Uniacke
It was a sorry season for North Melbourne, but Davies-Uniacke provided some rare highlights. He had 30-plus disposals in both of his side's first two victories, which could give him a decent head-start on his Kangaroos teammates. Key forward Nick Larkey booted 71 goals for the campaign and could also poll well throughout.

One-Vote Wonder: Jack Ziebell (Round 8 v St Kilda)
The retired North Melbourne favourite has 56 career Brownlow votes to his name, but can he add a couple more? He won 36 disposals, had 18 marks and finished with 469m gained in a dour affair against St Kilda. Don't be surprised to see him poll.

Best Chance: Zak Butters
A sublime patch midway through the year could see Butters emerge as a genuine contender for the Brownlow Medal. He is predicted to poll in eight consecutive games at one point in the campaign, which should see him overtake Connor Rozee as Port's best chance. He's never polled more than three votes in a season, so will need to catch the eye early.

One-Vote Wonder: Willem Drew (Round 6 v West Coast)
The hard-nosed Port Adelaide midfielder could be set for his first Brownlow votes, having claimed 25 disposals and a goal against West Coast. That complemented a performance that also featured six clearances, 10 tackles and eight score involvements.

Best Chance: Tim Taranto
A stellar first campaign at Richmond should have the midfielder among the leading contenders at points throughout the year. He is predicted to poll in eight straight games midway through the campaign, but there will be a question mark over whether he did enough either side of that to potentially claim the top award.

One-Vote Wonder: Jack Riewoldt (Round 12 v GWS Giants)
The retiring Richmond premiership great could sign off on his terrific career by adding to his 62 Brownlow votes. He kicked five goals and had 15 disposals, eight marks and 10 score involvements against the Giants in his best performance of the season.

Best Chance: Jack Sinclair
It was a prolific season for Sinclair, who should feature prominently among the votes during St Kilda's 13 wins throughout the campaign. Last year was the only season in which Sinclair has polled votes, winning nine, but more midfield time should see him pip captain Jack Steele and in-form onballer Brad Crouch as the Saints' leading contender.

One-Vote Wonder: Mitch Owens (Round 4 v Gold Coast)
Owens is a star and could get the first of a heap of career Brownlow votes for this performance against Gold Coast. He finished with 27 disposals and two goals while he also had 19 contested possessions, seven score involvements, five hitouts and two goal assists.

Best Chance: Errol Gulden
It was a breakout campaign for the versatile Sydney youngster, with a strong end to the season enough to give him an outside chance of claiming the Brownlow. His prolific ball-winning and his ability to hit the scoreboard should see him catch the eye enough to earn a heap of votes, particularly during the Swans' improved second-half of the campaign.

One-Vote Wonder: Logan McDonald (Round 2 v Hawthorn)
The exciting Sydney forward kicked five goals from 13 disposals and five marks in a big win over Hawthorn, which could lead to his first ever career Brownlow votes. The Swans had five multiple goalkickers, but none impressed more than McDonald.

Best Chance: Tim Kelly
It was a season to forget for West Coast, but Kelly still enjoyed his best campaign in Eagles colours. He was a rare shining light throughout much of the year and averaged 30 disposals in his side's three victories, so he should poll in those games. He won't have many teammates taking votes off him, either.

One-Vote Wonder: Jake Waterman (Round 2 v GWS Giants)
Votes will be hard to come by for West Coast players, but don't be surprised to see Waterman poll. He kicked four goals from 16 disposals and eight marks in a win over the Giants, while he also had nine score involvements and eight hitouts.

Best Chance: Marcus Bontempelli
It was a season where the Western Bulldogs captain enhanced his credentials as the game's best clearance player. A standout year, combined with fewer teammates taking votes from him, should put Bontempelli well and truly among the leading contenders for the Brownlow. A proven vote-winner, expect him to figure at the top end towards the latter part of the night.

One-Vote Wonder: Ed Richards (Round 9 v Carlton)
Richards had a big night against the Blues, which could see him pocket his first ever Brownlow votes. He won 25 disposals and took 10 marks while also finishing with 10 intercept possessions, six score involvements and four intercept marks.
