The Jack Dyer Medal is an Australian rules football award given each season to the player or players adjudged Best and Fairest for the Richmond Football Club.

The award is now named in honour of Jack Dyer, a champion ruckman who won the award six times from 1932 to 1946. He was one of the inaugural "Legends" inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame in 1996.

Other multiple winners have been Kevin Bartlett (five times); Wayne Campbell and dual Brownlow Medallist Roy Wright (four times each); Ron Branton, Neville Crowe, Geoff Raines and Brownlow Medallist Bill Morris, and Trent Cotchin (three times each). Barney Herbert, Hugh James, Vic Thorp, Basil McCormack, Jack Titus, Ray Martin, Leo Merrett, Des Rowe, Dave Cuzens, Royce Hart, Maurice Rioli, Dale Weightman, Matthew Knights, Tony Free, Joel Bowden, and most recently Brett Deledio have all won the award twice.

Bill Morris, Roy Wright and Ian Stewart all won the Best and Fairest in the same years that they won their Brownlow Medals at Richmond. Stan Judkins, Brownlow Medallist in 1930, never won the Club's award.
