That's according to AFL.com.au's Brownlow Predictor, which has Dangerfield's teammate Tim Kelly leading with a tally of 19, ahead of inspiring Carlton captain Patrick Cripps on 18.
Dangerfield, who took 'Charlie' home in 2016, is within reach of Kelly on 16.
After starting the season in red-hot touch, left knee and right ankle complaints proved problematic.
However, Dangerfield has exploded into peak form over the past fortnight.
He was immense as the Cats tore Richmond apart last Friday night, racking up 38 disposals, eight inside 50s and a goal.
