AFL: Brownlow Medal Contenders

14 rounds in to the 2024 AFL season and the race is hotting up to win the prestigious Brownlow Medal.

The Brownlow Medal is awarded to the best and fairest player in the AFL and is the biggest individual award a player can receive.

The winner of the Brownlow Medal is decided by the three field umpires, who cast their votes for the best on ground after each game during the regular home and away season.

Players must also avoid suspension to be eligible, and with plenty of footy to play between now and the end of the season, anything can happen.

Lachie Neale won the Brownlow Medal in 2023 but looks unlikely to win a third as Brisbane Lions have a season to forget.

A lot can change, but here are the current contenders to win the Brownlow Medal.

Isaac Heeney

Sydney Swans are having an outstanding season so far as they sit top of the AFL ladder and are priced at 3.50 to win the grand final in 2024.

Gun midfielder Heeney has been instrumental in their impressive start to the season and is now the hot fancy to win the Brownlow Medal.

The 28-year-old is averaging 26.5 disposals a game this season and is shining, week in, week out.

If Heeney can stay on the field for the rest of the season, then the Brownlow Medal looks to be heading his way.

Patrick Cripps

Carlton midfielder Patrick Cripps is also in the running to win the Brownlow Medal following an impressive season so far.

Predictions are suggesting that Cripps is continuing to pick up points for his performances and will be in the mix to win the Brownlow Medal.

Like Heeney, he is averaging 26.5 disposals a game, and is a crucial part of the Blues midfield as they look to end their premiership drought.

Carlton sit second on the ladder, eight points behind Sydney and are 5.50 to win the 2024 grand final.

Nick Daicos

The Collingwood superstar came so close to winning the Brownlow Medal last season, but just lost out to Lachie Neale.

The 21-year-old is having another outstanding season for the Pies and is averaging over 30 disposals a game.

Daicos will be hoping for a strong finish to the season that should keep him right in the hunt to win another premiership, and possibly the Brownlow Medal.

Zach Merrett

Essendon have made their way into the top four this season and the form of their captain is one of the reasons they are there.

Merrett is having a stellar season, averaging 28.7 disposals a game and if he carries on, could be in the reckoning on Brownlow Medal night.

The Bombers are still the dark horses at 21.00 to go on and win the grand final.
