Fyfe still the drum to take out the Brownlow Medal

FREMANTLE midfielder Nat Fyfe is still a hot favourite to win his first Brownlow

Medal on Monday night despite a late form slide after a leg injury saw him miss four games.

The Dockers star (pictured) was quoted at $1.85 by UBet, with last year's winner, Eagles on-baller Matt Priddis, second favourite at $5.50 to become the first player since St Kilda champion Robert Harvey in 1997-98 to claim the game's highest individual honour in consecutive years.

Fyfe had an extraordinary start to the year, with some commentators tipping him to have polled as many as 29 votes by round 13.

That could be where it ends, however.

Leg injuries saw him miss four games and when he did play he was nowhere near his best.

The only player to have missed four or more games and still win the Brownlow was Richmond's Stan Judkins with six in 1930.
