Outlook

Didn’t miss a beat from his 2016 Brownlow Medal win to start the season with a bang before really igniting around the mid-season break. Was again devastating in the midfield with his explosive power and elite skill, and showed in the semi-final against Sydney he can be a frightening prospect when one-out at full-forward. Was controversially deemed ineligible for back-to-back Brownlows for a tackle that left Carlton big man Matthew Kreuzer concussed in round 19 and ended up polling the second-highest votes behind Dustin Martin. Averaged nearly 30 disposals and an AFL-high of more than seven clearances across 24 games and kicked 45 goals (second behind Hawkins). Will no doubt be used as a forward weapon at times in 2018, after finishing third in the AFL for score involvements last year.

Player honours: Brownlow Medal 2016; Adelaide best and fairest 2015; Geelong best and fairest 2016, 2017; Adelaide 2nd best and fairest 2012; Adelaide 3rd best and fairest 2013 (equal) 2014; All-Australian 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017; International Rules Series 2010, 2014, 2015, 2017; AFLPA MVP 2016; AFLCA Player of the Year 2016; NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2009; Adelaide pre-season premiership side 2012.

Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 33; career votes 165.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Adelaide) No. 10 overall; 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by Adelaide for Dean Gore, No. 11 (Wayne Milera) and No. 33 (Mitch Hibberd).
