The AFL season is in full swing with the byes behind us and all teams now having played 13 games.

This season has seen some superstars show their class with consistent performances that get their side over the line, while some players are in the midst of career best years.

We have compiled a list of the league's ten best players of the season have been so far based on this season alone and the impact they have had.

Have a look at our list and let us know who we missed and who your top ten would be.


10. Ben Cunnington

Cunnington is one of the game's best inside midfielders and has started 2019 in All-Australian form. He ranks first in the competition in clearances and second in contested possessions all while averaging a career-high 28.2 disposals a game.

When North Melbourne have performed well, Cunnington's work has been a major reason as to why.
