Joe Daniher is a tall forward with strong marking ability.

After spending much of his first three seasons in the game working alongside the likes of Michael Hurley and Cale Hooker, in 2016 Daniher became the focal point of the Essendon forward line. Despite the added pressure and the missing stars both in attack and further up the ground, Daniher continued his upward curve.  His 43 goals marked the biggest return by an Essendon player since Matthew Lloyd in 2008.

The key forward averaged two goals a game throughout the season and was kept goal less in just two matches. His consistency throughout the year was rewarded at the Crichton Medal where he finished equal runner-up alongside James Kelly. 

Daniher was named in the 2017 Leadership Group.
