WHEN will the contenders make their charge on Brownlow night?

We know Ollie Wines and Clayton Oliver were consistent all campaign, but will that be enough to overcome a sizzling mid-year stretch from Marcus Bontempelli or a late-season surge from Jack Steele?

BROWNLOW LOW-DOWN Every club's favourite, one-vote wonder

AFL.com.au
 looks at the favourites for this year's Brownlow Medal and considers when they'll poll their votes and who their main threats are in each game throughout the 2021 season.

Round 2: A prolific performance saw him claim 38 touches against the Bombers, but will Zak Butters steal some votes? The youngster had 36 and a goal himself.
Round 5: Should see some votes after winning 32 disposals and seven clearances against the Blues, but Robbie Gray kicked three goals and Aliir Aliir was dominant.
Round 6: Expect to see him poll maximum votes, having won 36 disposals and eight clearances in a big win over the Saints. Karl Amon had 34 touches and is the only threat.
Round 11: Finished with 35 disposals and eight clearances in a win over the Dockers. Sam Powell-Pepper kicked three goals and could be his main rival for votes.
Round 14: Expect all three votes after racking up 43 disposals against the Suns. Steven Motlop had a day out but shouldn't come close to stealing the votes.
Round 16: Another 43 disposals, this time in a win over the Hawks. He also won 14 clearances to boot and should easily claim maximum votes.
Round 18: Claimed 36 disposals and a goal in a victory against the Saints. Expect three votes, provided he's not pipped by Jack Steele's 36-touch effort.
Round 19: A raffle for three votes. He won 30 disposals and kicked a goal, but Travis Boak and Willem Drew were also prolific in a win over the Pies.
Round 22: He won 31 disposals in a big victory over the Blues but could be overshadowed by Travis Boak and Aliir Aliir again. Karl Amon was also strong.
Round 23: Should finish on a high, having won 34 disposals and a goal in a comeback win over the Dogs. Will Travis Boak's 31-touch effort pip him for maximum votes though?

Round 1: Should be in line for votes after winning 30 touches against the Kangaroos, but Travis Boak was awesome and Orazio Fantasia slotted four majors in his club debut.
Round 4: He won 27 disposals and five clearances against the Tigers, which should see him poll. But will Travis Boak's 29-touch effort beat him to all three votes?
Round 7: Had 37 touches and a goal, but in a big loss to the Lions. Hugh McCluggage racked up 30 and Charlie Cameron kicked four majors for the winners.
Round 9: Finished with 32 disposals and a goal in a loss to the Dogs. Marcus Bontempelli won 26 and kicked two, so should claim maximum votes. Is he an outside chance to poll?
Round 10: Still finished with 27 disposals and a goal but might get overshadowed in a win over the Pies. Robbie Gray kicked three, while Brodie Grundy and Darcy Moore starred.
Round 15: Would have to be in consideration after winning 29 touches against the Swans. However, Travis Boak was the star while Lance Franklin kicked four goals.
Round 17: Had 33 disposals and a goal, but in a loss to the Demons. Would be an outside chance to poll but would need to overcome Christian Petracca and Clayton Oliver.
Round 20: Had 28 disposals and nine clearances against the Giants and could sneak a vote, but Karl Amon and Travis Boak were also busy.
Round 21: A much-improved Showdown performance, winning 26 disposals and a goal against the Crows. Aliir Aliir claimed the Showdown Medal though and will expect three.

Round 3: Had 26 touches, but in a big loss to the Eagles. Andrew Gaff, Luke Shuey and Dom Sheed should poll here.

Round 12: Bye.
Round 13: Finished with 29 disposals and a goal, but in a loss to the Cats. Jeremy Cameron and Tom Hawkins combined for nine goals and should pip him to the votes.

Brownlow Predictor: 19 votes (13th)
Sportsbet Odds: $3.25 (1st)

Round 2: Dominated with 30 disposals and three goals against the Eagles to emerge as a genuine Brownlow threat. Jack Macrae will be his competition for maximum votes.
Round 5: Pencil him down for another three votes. Finished with 33 disposals and three goals in a big win over the Suns. Josh Dunkley was good but won't steal maximum votes.
Round 8: Finished with 32 disposals, 10 clearances and a goal against the Blues. Should be enough to earn all three votes, despite Josh Bruce's five-goal haul.
Round 9: Should be in contention for three votes after winning 26 disposals and kicking two goals against the Power. Jack Macrae had 32 touches and could trouble him.
Round 10: Continued a fine run of form with 26 disposals and four goals against the Saints. Jack Macrae was also good but won't worry his captain for all three votes.
Round 12: Finished with 27 disposals and two goals in a road win over the Dockers. Aaron Naughton played well, but the skipper should be in line to poll maximum votes.
Round 15: Another big game, winning 29 disposals, 10 clearances and three goals against the Eagles. Bailey Smith was also prolific and could challenge him for three votes.
Round 18: Had 36 disposals and nine clearances in a win over the Suns. Should put him in line to claim three votes, though Touk Miller and Jack Macrae were also strong.
Round 19: Had 31 disposals and two goals in a best-on-ground display against the Demons, but will these be his last votes for the year? Might need to have a big lead by this stage.

Round 13: Bye.

Round 22: Still finished with 31 disposals, but in a shock loss to the Hawks. Dan Howe, Tim O'Brien and Chad Wingard should be the leading contenders for votes.

Round 8: Expect his 35-disposal performance against the Swans to kickstart a hot run of form. Could poll three votes, although Tom McDonald kicked four majors.

Round 20: Claimed 35 disposals and a goal against the Suns but will face competition from Christian Petracca for all three votes again. His teammate had 32 touches and a goal.
Round 23: A brilliant end to the year should see him collect another three votes. He won 37 disposals, nine clearances and two goals in the side's comeback win over the Cats.
