Brayshaw continued his rise to not just become one of the best midfielders at Fremantle, but also in the AFL. The young midfielder played every game in 2020, averaging 20 disposals per game. He significantly increased his kicking efficiency to 62.8 per cent in 2020 from 43.1 in 2019, rating 10th for inside midfielders in the AFL who played 10 games or more. It wasn’t just his contributions with ball in hand as he pressured his opponents with a club-leading 84 tackles in 2020, 19 more than any other Fremantle player.
Despite being just 20, Brayshaw was still able to dominate games and lead Fremantle to important wins against Hawthorn, Adelaide and St Kilda.
