Zorko attained 34 disposals, 10 tackles, seven clearances and a goal and behind each Sunday as Brisbane trounced Fremantle 118-54 at Optus Stadium.
Zorko registered a season-high 24 kicks en route to a game-high 34 touches and paced all players in tackles in Saturday's match. The Lions midfielder also posted his best inside (11) and rebound 50 (5) totals of the year, leaving him with his second 130 fantasy point performance in as many weeks. The 32 year-old continues to enjoy a strong start to August, a month in which he's averaged 23 kicks, 8.5 handballs, 31.5 disposals, 7.5 tackles, six clearances, 1.5 behinds and a goal per showing. Next up for Zorko is a Aug. 14 match-up with Collingwood.

Logs 29 disposals in loss
MBrisbane Lions
August 1, 2021
Zorko scored one goal and two behinds to go with 29 disposals (22 kicks, seven handballs) in addition to making nine marks during the 92-80 loss to Hawthorn in Round 20.
Zorko's behinds could have changed the result had he been more efficient, though this result doesn't fall squarely on his shoulders. While once one of the top fantasy options in the league, Zorko has only topped 100 points scored in two of his last five games, though never scoring less than 97 total. With Jarryd Lyons still the top option from this club, Zorko is still worthy of tracking if he can improve even a little before the finals begin.
Leading fantasy scorer in win
MBrisbane Lions
June 24, 2021
Zorko huddled 24 disposals, 12 tackles, 10 marks and three clearances Thursday as Brisbane defeated Geelong 94-50 at Gabba.
Zorko not only set a personal-best for tackles as a key defensive cog for Brisbane on Thursday, but too finished the match leader for marks. The 32 year-old, who also logged his best fantasy point total of 2021 versus Geelong (142), now finds himself ranked 20th in the AFL for fantasy score per game (106.77 points) and currently trailing only Western's Josh Dunkley and North Melbourne's Jack Ziebell as the league's best option for selection at forward.
Completes suspension

June 22, 2021
Zorko completed his one-match ban during the Round 14 win over North Melbourne on Saturday.
Zorko missed out an easier matchup with the 'Roos only to return for a major clash with Geelong. The quality of the opponent has seldom limited Zorko's production as he's scored at least 100 fantasy points in seven of his last eight games.
Picks up one-game ban
MBrisbane Lions
June 8, 2021
Zorko has been handed a one-game suspension for striking during the Round 12 loss to Melbourne.
Zorko is unfortunately absent for the softest fantasy matchup of the year against North Melbourne, so Lachie Neale and Jarryd Lyons will need to step up in his absence.
Another strong showing in loss
MBrisbane Lions
June 4, 2021
Zorko scored one goal and one behind to go with 22 disposals (13 kicks, nine handballs) in addition to making 10 tackles and six marks during Friday's 97-75 loss to Melbourne.
Zorko helped his team to a good lead over the first three quarters but the second half went in favor of the 'Dees and sealed the result. As shown by Friday's efforts, Zorko doesn't need to reach 20 disposals each week to put up good fantasy numbers, and his consistency is useful while both Jarryd Lyons and Lachie Neale struggle to play as well each week.
