Simpkin recorded 31 disposals (15 kicks, 16 handballs) and made eight marks during Saturday's 116-77 win over Carlton in Round 19.
Simpkin hasn't scored less than 96 points since the end of May and led his entire team in disposals and tied for the tackling lead in this game. It's fun to watch this 'Roos team turn their season around, and Simpkin has proven he has a key role to play in that process.

Simpkin logged 30 disposals (20 kicks, 10 handballs), one goal, four tackles, four marks and five total clearances in North Melbourne's win over Gold Coast on Friday.
Simpkin's disposals total was a team high and marked his third consecutive of at least 30. The midfielder's goal was his first since May 2 against Melbourne and only his second of the season overall. Through 14 matches, Simpkin has now exceeded his 2020 disposals total of 344 by 27, and with 72 clearances, he's just two shy of his 2020 tally in that category.

June 13, 2021
Simpkin logged 31 disposals (18 kicks, 13 handballs) to go with six marks made and eight tackles completed during Sunday's 94-all draw with GWS in Round 13.
Simpkin is starting to find his groove and played a key role in standing up to one of the better midfields in the Premiership. Since the start of May, Simpkin has scored over 100 points in four out of six games. As he's barely reached 60 points in the games when he didn't perform as well, Simpkin's current form is somewhat of a double-edged sword.

Simpkin garnered 26 disposals, six tackles, five marks, three clearances and a single goal assist Saturday as North Melbourne fell to St. Kilda 88-68 at Marvel Stadium.
Simpkin trailed only Aaron Hall (33) as North Melbourne's leader in disposals and finished tied with Ben Cunnington, Jack Mahony and Tarryn Thomas for most tackles by a Kangaroo player in Saturday's loss. Averaging 25 4 disposals, 4.6 clearances and 3.5 marks and tackles an appearance on the year, the 23 year-old currently sees himself ranked in the AFL's top 20 for total clangers and centre clearances, but, with a fantasy point per game median of 86.2, sitting well-outside the top 50 options for selection at midfielder heading into Round 12.
