8With six rounds of football officially in the books for the 2023 AFL season, plenty of players have made their mark on the competition already.

Young Pie Nick Daicos has emerged as a Brownlow favourite in just his second season and looks to be topping Collingwood's best and fairest count, while plenty of others have had standout seasons for their clubs.

After a month and a bit of footy, we've taken a look at where each club's best and fairest count stands, naming the favourites for the award so far, with part two of the series covering Geelong through to North Melbourne.



1. Geelong Cats

In a slow-starting season that is now developing fruitfully for the Cats, the one constant has been Jeremy Cameron's dominance.

It is the opinion of many educated footy fans that 'Jezza' is the best player in the comp, given his knack for single-handedly changing a game with his impact in all areas of the field. He is currently on the 100-goal watch and could be in for an all-time classic race for the Coleman Medal with Charlie Curnow.

He's kicked 30 goals from seven games and ranks second in the comp for score involvements. He is also a rare contender for the Brownlow, let alone Geelong's best & fairest favourite.

During Geelong's four weeks of dominance, it has been Cameron, Patrick Dangerfield, Tom Stewart and Mark Blicavs who have been the typical forces, all of whom may have a best & fairest come the end of the season.

Young Max Holmes however, has begun living up to the expectations set upon him last season, with some quality performances to open 2023.
