Leading Goalkicker - 2014
Games: 50 (121 total)
Goals: 47 (130 total)
Dawes' debut was delayed by two injuries in the pre-season, and other than a brief cameo in Melbourne's first NAB Cup Game he didn't make his first appearance with the Demons until Round 7. He was injured and missed games twice more before the end of the year but proved himself to be a reliable player in an otherwise poor forward line.
He improved his output to 18 games in 2014, and led the low scoring side's goalkicking - albeit with the equal lowest total of any leading goalkicker since 1966. He suffered an inconsistent 2015, playing 14 games but spending time in the VFL during the season.
