Some links previewing the 2015 Australian Football League season, kicking off in a few weeks:

Top 10 AFL games to watch in 2015 by Michelangelo Rucci. Particularly if you barrack for Port Adelaide, Collingwood, Sydney, or Hawthorn.

The top 50 AFL players, as voted by the players themselves.

Which AFL teams will find it harder to overcome the difficulty of their fixture?

Each club’s expected best line-up as of the first round.

And another view of each club’s best line-up, as well as a prediction of where each club will finish.

Based on my ever-present power rankings, this is how I would rate each club’s chances. You may have had six months to think about it, but don’t overrate a team’s final performance or two in 2014.

Main contenders: Hawthorn, Sydney.
Good chance for finals: Port Adelaide, Adelaide, Fremantle, West Coast, North Melbourne.
Some chance for finals: Geelong, Richmond, Essendon.
More likely to miss finals: Carlton, Gold Coast, Collingwood.
Bottom teams: Western Bulldogs, Greater Western Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, St. Kilda.
