Phantom Brownlow Team Leaders for Essendon

The Essendon Most Brownlow Votes market will look different this year with the introduction of several new players in a busy off season by the Bombers.

But it will take some big efforts for anyone to top Zach Merrett who has dominated Essendon on Brownlow Medal night in recent years. Merrett has polled 19 and 15 votes over the past two seasons, so is the obvious pick this year.

Dyson Heppell is popular in betting and is a proven vote getter. He has polled 10, 14, 10 and 14 votes over the past four seasons and represents great value at the moment. David Zarahrakis also looks a popular pick after his career high 11 votes in 2017.

New recruits Devon Smith and premiership player Jake Stringer should shake things up a bit too and have been popular in betting.
