The AFL Players’ Association MVP Award nominees for 2018 have been revealed, ahead of next week's awards.
Players nominate three teammates for the award, before three nominees from every club are presented to the wider playing group for a vote to decide the winner. Players cannot vote for their own teammates in stage two of the process.
