15 rounds in and we've never been more perplexed over which teams are serious, and who's on fraud watch.

One thing is for certain, it is Sydney's to lose from here and it may take something miraculous to halt their surge to a sixth flag.

Below them lies unending confusion; the two sides with the second & third best percentage sitting outside the top eight.

10th-placed Brisbane sit less than two wins out of the top four, but the former bottom-dweller Hawks may be one of the four best teams going around at this moment.

As the ladder deceives us like never before, stars from every team are making a compelling case for their spot in the AFL All-Australian team.

In this edition, all but three sides are represented and five clubs have earned the honour of featuring multiple names.

Men we had thought set their names in stone by Round 10 have been stunningly omitted, through their own struggles or another's rise.

As always, a host of names remain stiff to miss, but here is the cream of the 2024 crop lucky enough to secure a spot in our Round 15 rolling side.


1. Defenders

Luke Ryan is held, but with Fremantle on fraud watch, he is far from secure. The Dockers defence was found out by Bontempelli and co. in Round 14 and Ryan's struggles on the day may have exposed his deficiencies when the uncontested marking method is quashed. A solid win over Gold Coast on Sunday has fortunately eased some of the pressure.

Harris Andrews holds with a little more comfort as Brisbane appear ripe to rampage through the back half of the year and into finals. The unlikelier member, Sam Collins, continues to dominate one-on-one matchups and take charge of the Suns back six with rare consistency. These two remain secure until proven otherwise.

Jacob Weitering finally gets some external love with his placement. The numbers don't lie and the eyes don't either; his contested defensive loss rate of under 7% supports the eye test, seeing him tower over opposition forwards seemingly on a weekly basis.

Dan Houston and Max Holmes patrol the flanks, providing valuable intercepting ability in the air or on the ground, with even more damage on the rebounding and offensive side.

Stiff to miss:
